What is Dollar Cost Average (DCA)?

Dollar cost averaging is an investment strategy that consists of buying the same dollar amount of an asset on a regular basis, regardless of price.

For example: Buying $250 worth of bitcoin every month, without any exception, no matter the price.

DCA is considered one of the most reliable and effective strategies when it comes to investing.

Isn't Bitcoin too volatile?

That's the point. When you dollar cost average, you basically neutralize bitcoin's volatility.

If you buy bitcoin at $60k and then the same amount again at $20k, your average cost is $40k. If you continue buying all the time, your cost per purchase will even out over time.

Despite its volatility, you will notice that Bitcoin outperforms most stocks, indexes and precious metals.
