David Schwartz Reveals His Crypto Positions
The list of cryptocurrencies in Schwartz’s portfolio contains 13 different digital tokens arranged in the order of position size.
Then, after Basic Attention Token (BAT), comes XLM powered by Ripple’s major rival Stellar and Cardano (ADA). While Bitcoin Gold (BTG) and EOS come at the end of the list.
David Schwartz further admitted that he would have chosen to hold different digital currencies now but these holdings have been formed “due to airdrops and other circumstances”.
Ripple CTO tweeted “Note that this is not necessarily what I’d chose to hold now, I just kind of wound up here due to airdrops and other circumstances. 😉 Roughly in order of position size: XRP, BTC, ETH, BAT, XLM, ADA, Polymath, BNT, KIN, Crypterium, StormX, Bitcoin Gold, and EOS.”
