As long as you paint a pretty picture and throw in enough cryptocurrency jargon at an unsuspecting investor, you are able to get away with keeping all the investments which were given to you to start the somewhat fictional currency and never be heard from again. Since anonymity is relatively easy to attain online and that’s exactly what most cryptocurrencies are about, accepting that 1 BTC payment request and never hearing from your so called “genius” developer is a very sound and scary possibility. Our suggestion is to be diligent and careful with your ventures. Double check everything, including dates, claims, and domain registration dates. If something seems odd or misaligned, run like you have never run before. With all this in mind, don’t assume all of these potential goldmines are deadly web traps. Many of these developers are actually looking for legitimate funding and they are in fact trying to make the new invention a success. Who knows, maybe you will find the diamond in the rough.

I got fired 3 week ago and got into depression, one of my best friends is a crypto trader. Instead of feeling shitty he want to teach me everything about crypto and he said that it might help me to understand the normal 9-6 job life is not the only way. here are the tips and resources he gave me:
Overall cryptocurrencies can change the financial world, and for the moment it is all still being worked on. Users of these coins still do need to remain aware of their limitations and volatility for the time being and foreseeable future.
Since exchanges, generally speaking, can’t lend out BTC, there’s no leverage. One BTC on the ledger needs to be backed by one BTC in the wallet. That’s why the Mt. Gox breach ended in the bankruptcy of what was at the time the world’s largest exchange. Coincheck plans to use its own capital to reimburse customers. To return the NEM, they’d need to go into the market and buy it back, so they’ll probably hand out fiat instead.
Setting goals and placing sell orders: always set your goals by putting sell orders. You don’t know when a whale will pump your coin up to catch your command (and pay a reduced fee on the “maker” side, remember?).
An official announcement thread of a coin will show you important information: Total coin supply, technical details, development plans, mission statement, community speculation, and a lot more. Additionally, Twitter is a great resource not just for news, but tracking down web pages and other forums related to a cryptocoin.
Well are there even tax laws that are in effect now in crypto trading? In exchanges perhaps but for traders i don’t think so. Unless people would be willing to disclose their information when registering on an exchange, pretty much how south korea is planning to regulate crypto.
At this point I still owned Ethereum and the price was still swinging back and forth. Since I needed an income and didn’t want to get a job, it was time to try this trading idea. But I set a strict requirement that if I didn’t earn enough money to pay my rent after a month, I’d quit trading.
One way to tell if a stock price is over/undervalued is by reading moving averages. Moving averages are plotted on stock charts to help smooth out volatility and point out the direction a stock may be trending. As short-term moving averages (red line below) cross over long-term moving averages (black line), this sometimes is followed by accelerated movement in the price. Also pay attention to spikes in trade volume, as this may imply that strong sentiments of fear or excitement just entered the market.
Well that’s true for professional traders, or say someone who is trading with large amount and expects a profit everyday it’s his job. But with casual traders, someone like me, they don’t usually set a goal or anything just trade with small amounts and hope you gain some profit at end of day.
The Pure Investments community, as well as many other communities out there, have a free and paid membership. The paid membership is similar to the free one in that each one can access the community, but the paid one has more hands-on guidance from the analysts, and you can learn more through the education sections. If you’re interested, you can check out the Pure Investments community below (this isn’t some paid advertisement article that I shill for a few dollars, I’m not getting paid any commission for this and am purely suggesting it because I truly enjoy the community and it’s provided me so much value in my own crypto investment journey):
The day I first heard about Bitcoin on Reddit, a friend had also called me to tell me about it. We spent most of our friendship talking about Ayn Rand and programming, so when we heard about a currency that was software and couldn’t be controlled by governments we were very interested. I purchased $600 worth of BTC and my friend and I planned on buying a mining rig.
This is a conundrum that you’ll need to deal with as an investor or day trader. You can always hold out for more, but at the same time you are risking a loss. If you have bills, just sell the Bitcoin for fiat and don’t look back.
At the end of last week, someone stole 523 million NEM coins, worth around $500 million, from Coincheck. It took about eight hours for the exchange to even notice that its wallet had been siphoned. Google the term “crypto hack” and you’ll find plenty of listicles highlighting some of the most infamous breaches, including that of Mt. Gox, which in 2014 lost around 850,000 Bitcoins.
I’m glad there are people like you with experience willing to share your knowledge. It’s an exciting time for the world, kind of like when the cellphone was first released and communication became more fluid.
Unlike forex, stocks and options etc., altcoin markets have very different dynamics. New ones are always popping up which means they don’t have a lot of market data and historical perspective for you to backtest against. Most of the altcoins have rather poor liquidity as well . How do you come up with a reasonable plan and test it given these complications?
You can still profit in day trading because the market is so volatile and if you know what you are doing then you can have a good profit in it. However, day trading is sometimes so stressful because you have to watch the market all the time because there is a possibility of a pump and dump in the coin you have bought so there are others who suggest to just buy and hold and then wait for sometime for your coin to grow in price. If the coin has active developers and their project is viable then more often than not, your holdings will multiply in value in the future. Just observed the growth of coins in the market.

Maybe one day our fiat money system will go under and be completely replaced by cryptocurrencies. We’re living in a digitalized world and the possibility of Bitcoin or any other major cryptocurrencies to replace the way we pay for the goods and services is not beyond the realms of possibility. However, as long as there are still profits to be made from Forex currency trading we encourage you to read our receipt for Forex trading success: How to Make Money Trading – 2 Keys to Success.
Here again, it is important considering a number of factors when choosing a stop loss level correctly. Most traders fail when they fall in love with a trade or the coin itself. They may say, “Here it will turn around, and I will get out of this trade with a minimum loss, I’m sure”. They’re letting their ego take control of them and unlike the traditional stock exchange where extreme daily movements are considered 2-3% in value, Crypto trades are a lot more riskier: in my life as a trader I’ve seen a coin dumping by 80% just in a few hours! And nobody wants to be the one who is left holding it.
This is an old saying in the stock-trading scene, which is also valid in the cryptocurrency-trading-world! We are going to post our latest trades, suggestions and technical analysis on our Bitcoin blog, but you should not limit yourself only to us. Other sources are twitter hashtags for the given coin and crypto-forums like reddit for example.
