Metrics aside, Spencer Bogart makes great sense in this thread where he describes the regulatory risk and other risks that might bring the Ethereum house of cards down. It is possible that the SEC will rule that the ICOs are illegal sale of securities. People might go to prison. It is for these reasons that I am under-allocated.
I thought this site was about critical thinking. I you have your shit together you know that trading some crypto currency is a really bad idea. This article basicly encourages people to piss away money. It offers zero good trading advice, except buy low and sell high. LMAO
Of course, it is to you, if you do decide to attempt day trading then be careful, test out with a small amount of your portfolio and avoid emotional stress. For me, you risk entering the world and mindset of a gambler. Just see if your day trading is outperforming your hold trading.
Cryptopia – Cryptopia is a great one-stop-shop for a wide range of cryptocurrencies. Besides being an exchange and a wallet, it is also a marketplace where you can sell and buy almost anything for bitcoins and altcoins. The idea is to offer all kind of cryptocurrency related services on one single platform. The fee structure is very straightforward, the trading fee is 0.20% of the total BTC or cryptocurrency you are paying with. Cryptopia does not charge deposits as this would come from the wallet that wants to deposit into your account. Their Arbitrage feature is probably the best idea that they came up with. You can easily compare the “Ask” and “Bid” price from four different websites at the same time. This lets you exploit the market discrepancies during the day with just a few clicks.
Since then, the Bitcoin has continued a steady climb to its current price of over $4,000 per coin. Bitcoin has since been adopted by several merchants as their means of payment. Several android apps have also been created to aid business transactions using Bitcoins. Bitcoin has also taken a further step with several offline wallets built by developers to help coin holders secure their investments.
While the offer lasts, supporters of the initiative and other enthusiasts are given access to purchasing the distributed cryptocoins (Tokens) with virtual currency or fiat. The tokens you purchase are just like the shares you buy in a company with an Initial Public Offering (IPO).
In one of your future posts, would be nice for you also to include how to handle it when the chart reads something, and the opposite happens. How do you accept a failed attempt, when you are following the right system?
I believe that the window to enter cryptocurrency trading in rapidly closing – soon, most of the bluechip coins will be extremely expensive and unable to double in value as easily as they can right now.
Kraken works well through SEPA, has an easy verification process (expect 4-6 weeks vetting with current backlog) compared to Bitstamp, and is very knowledgeable when it come to cryptography and security. As of early 2017, this platform has been re-positioning themselves as a crypto exchange by adding multiple new altcoins. I’ve written an in-depth Kraken review with everything you need to know..
Yeah, I have a considerable amount of money invested in Dogecoin. My only concern with Dogecoin is that it really serves no purpose, so when cryptos begin to take off and become more widely accepted, the coins that were made for a legitimate reason will be the survivors. All other joke-coins, no offense to the Dogecoin community, will become obsolete. That’s just my opinion. I still have some faith in Dogecoin because the community is so strong, but they need to start becoming more innovative and creative with their promotion. I’m sick of seeing shitty memes, knitted doge sweaters from Grandma, or dogecoin crafts made from girlfriends. It’s getting kind of ridiculous at this point. They will never be taken seriously at this rate.
Zcash (ZEC) is a cryptocurrency which grew out of the Zerocoin project in 2016, aimed at giving crypto users a greater level of privacy and anonymity. Zcash payments are published on a pubic blockchain, giving users the option to hide some features of identity such as fund sender, recipient and amount.
When a cryptocurrency startup firm is considering raising some money through an ICO, it has to generate a plan on a whitepaper. This will usually contain things like the purpose of the project, the needs it intends to take care of upon completion, the amount of money that is required, the length of time the campaign will run for, and the number of tokens reserved for the pioneers of the project.

Bittrex is currently closed to new user while they upgrade their systems. In the interim, you can buy coins from Changelly with Credit/Debit or Bitcoin. I’ll let everyone know when Bittrex is back up for new registration. Happy trading!
Tough week, guys. Agree? Lots of news and significant volatility on the market. According to the technical analysis XRPUSD is about to make a reversal. If you take a look at the fibonacci extension you can see that XRPUSD has touched the 38.2% extension line (this line has already proved its historically statistical significance – you can easily check this) that …
I deposited $2500 to start and every thing was good at the beginning. Few weeks later they change my account manager because some internal troubles inside crypto all day at thos time I we losing money. On the next day after my account manager substitution every thing was better and they reverted the situation and I felt better at this time.
One by one, the exchanges are closing the doors to new Registrations under the pressure of excessive demand. Bittrex, Cryptopia, CEX are closed to new registrations. It is still possible to open accounts at Binance, Bitmex, Bitfinex, CoinExchange, COSS, HitBTC, Altcoin.
The good thing about Kraken is you can buy using FIAT and they charge you next to nothing to withdraw your funds. Most other sites charge higher fees when you buy and then again when you withdraw so you get bitten twice, so to speak.
At Coin Pursuit, we’re investors in digital currency, just like our readers are, and they often approach us for advice. All of us have a stake in the success of cryptocurrency, and we all want it to succeed, right? Right! Well, we’ve discussed those goals with experts in the industry, and with their help we’ve come up with what we like to call our Ten Commandments of Trading Cryptocurrency.
It requires too much time, and I want to work the minimum amount each day, my trading time is less than an hour a day. Yes I now write about crypto but writing is a pleasure, it is one of the things I have always wanted to do. It is using my time for what I want. Just check how often I Tweet compared to the day trading experts. A few a day because I am busy doing other things than looking at the market.
On top of that, the cryptocurrency market travels at lightspeed compared to other markets. New coins enter the market on a daily basis (in 2016, there were about 550 different coins, today there are about 1,500), and each one has news every day. I’m not doubting your ability to consume and analyze news, but that level of information bombardment will always be more effectively consumed as a group. In these communities, you’ll see members link news and relevant articles about coins you’ve invested in and coins you’ve never heard of. The community will definitely expand your knowledge much faster than doing it all yourself.
Lack of regulation for cryptocurrencies mean that they are highly volatile by nature, and an investment with this can make a lot of money fast, and at the same time it can turn and one can lose money fast. The reason it is not yet accepted by a lot of businesses is partly due to the lack of regulation.
Being 22 years old in New York City is a financial struggle. I didn’t have enough money to pay rent, and the value of my Bitcoin had dipped to $550. I sold it all and ditched my plans for a mining rig. My financial situation needed to be stabilized before I could invest in assets based on my philosophical beliefs.
