The title of this blog post is one of the best ideas of a Nobel Prize winner Harry Markowitz.

How much is too much Bitcoin in your portfolio?

It depends on your risk tolerance, with some now only living in cryptocurrencies and others just slowly wading into the asset class like an old women getting into a warm bath.

For the average investor, a 1-10% allocation to Bitcoin is a smart percentage based on analysis performed below by Financial Horse.com.

Diversify into Bitcoin to increase your investment performance and reduce your chances of missing out on the greatest wealth transference of this generation.
