About This Strategy

This strategy is the most aggressive of the systems on this site. It uses the proven rules of STAG and Wealth Without Worry, blended into one coherent strategy. It is designed to generate truly outstanding returns by including the first asset in history with limited supply and ability to resist censorship by governments and corporations - bitcoin.

Because the Wealth Without Worry component of the system buys more of an asset as it becomes cheaper it is not suitable for assets that have any risk at all of going to zero. Therefore this system should only ever be used by people that believe that bitcoin is here to stay, and will never go to zero.

Nick Long, the founder of InvestYourself, does believe this, and that is why this strategy is published here.

The strategy can only go back to 2011 because bitcoin was not available to invest in before then.

Statistics below are from 2011 to 2020
