Machine Learning for Crypto Portfolio Management Case Study: Week 9

As BTC continues to steal the show, Nomics has been able to maintain dominance with Shrimpy and the Smart Contracts Index in a close race for 2nd.

Shrimpy ML Strategy

The Shrimpy ML Strategy leverages the 7-day price predictions generated by the Shrimpy ML engine. These price predictions are then used to determine which assets should be placed into our portfolio for this week. Additional information regarding the methodology can be found in our previous article.

Shrimpy predictions left a lot to be desired this week, with most of the predictions actually performing negatively. RFOX was a sleeper pick and did most of the heavy lifting to bring this portfolio into profitability this week.

Conclusions

NFT’s are the current “big thing” and as such, portfolios that provide coverage in this sector are reaping the rewards. Concurrently, sectors that have begun to stagnate have started to see their value flowing into BTC as it approaches a new round of price discovery — and many newly flipped supports are being tested as a result. Meanwhile, Nomics and Shrimpy both have begun to show cracks in their prediction methodology. While we can’t predict the future, it’s exciting to see if Nomics and Shrimpy’s Machine Learning models can adjust to the new market conditions or if Indices will use this opening to make up for lost ground and really steal the show.
