First thing to consider when looking for the top bitcoin exchange is how safe are the website and server. This boils down to asking: is it a trustworthy exchange providing transparent data of coins in cold storage (more on this later) and are customers happy? It’s also good to lookout for which currency pairs are available: are you looking to trade bitcoin for USD, Euros, or other fiat currencies. The location usually gives an idea of what’s on offer. However, the largest bitcoin sites usually have many options for buying bitcoin with government issued currency and altcoins.
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.
So, how we can avoid those mistakes in our trading? How to be mostly on the green side? First, it is important to note that to trade right requires attention and your one hundred percent focus. Secondly, trading is not for everyone. The following tips are easy to internalize because these tips were “written in blood” (my own blood). However, it’s still difficult to apply them in real-time. After all, we are not rational human beings.
Oh and I did money. I was just mad I didn’t make more. That’s when I knew I needed to take a break and do nothing for a day. I got up late, took a walk, ate a nice breakfast and apologized for being a jerk to my beautiful lady.

As we’ve explained before, this is a cryptocurrency trading strategy that can be used trading all the important cryptocurrencies. Actually, this is an Ethereum trading strategy as much as it’s a Bitcoin trading strategy. If you didn’t know Ethereum is the second most popular cryptocurrency (see figure below).
The Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) Indicator is a top of the line trading indicator used in the technical analysis of various financial instruments including cryptocurrencies. The MACD indicator utilizes both trend following and momentum indicators by showing the relationship between two different price averages. It does this by calculating the longer moving average and subtracting it by the calculated shorter moving average. These moving averages oscillate above and below the zero line resulting in the converging, crossing, and diverging of moving averages.
I tried it and in the end I’m just happier HODLing. Alts are just pumped and dumped way too often and if you’re not watching constantly you can get screwed so quickly. Actually even if you watch you can get screwed. It’s a tough business to be in.
Unocoin is India’s most popular Bitcoin wallet. It has a built in exchange that allows users to exchange Bitcoin for Indian Rupees (INR). Unocoin charges a 1% fee to buy or sell bitcoins. Over an extended period of usage (minimum 60 days) and a significant transaction volume on your account, there will be an upgrade to “Gold Membership” and the trading fee will drop to 0.7% and the transaction limit per day will increase.
The reason why the smart money divergence concept works is because the cryptocurrency market as a whole should move in the same direction when we’re in a trend. The same principles have been true for all the other major asset classes for decades and it’s true for the cryptocurrency trading strategy as well.
You must remember your password or private key if you store your Bitcoin electronically or be sure you can recover your private key (the easier this is, the more prone your Bitcoin is to potential theft by hackers).
Don’t over trade – If you have one or two losing trades in a row, you are done for the day. Do not keep trading or you will just be chasing gains and you will lose even more. As you become much more experienced, you can push this further. But when starting out and even as an intermediate trader, if you lose 1 or 2 trades, then stop for the day, you are done.
We are in a growing market; we could be in a growing market for years. There is no need to day trade. There are amazing returns available from finding a good coin with a solid trajectory, finding a good entry point and holding for the medium to long term until you are in profit.

This is an alternative to mining that does not require vast amounts of electricity. The idea is that you stake the cryptocurrency that you own over a wifi connection. That crypto that you stake is used to validate transactions on the blockchain, and you are rewarded more cryptocurrency for putting the currency you own in the pool.
If it is so risky to invest through the use of ICOs, then why is on the rise and why are so many people trying to make a profit this way? Many predict that the boom in ICO sales is primarily due to the huge amount of return that was made by the early Ethereum adopters, making ICOs seem pretty desirable.
All investments involve risk and the past performance of a security, or financial product does not guarantee future results or returns. Keep in mind that while diversification may help spread risk it does not assure a profit, or protect against loss, in a down market. There is always the potential of losing money when you invest in securities, or other financial products. Investors should consider their investment objectives and risks carefully before investing.
Ethereum’s technology is already being used by super-popular projects around the world, showing great success, and offering a glimpse of a stable crypto future. I love Ether and hold a significant percentage of my portfolio in Ether.
“It is fairly obvious that people care about [cryptocurrency],” says Baiju Bhatt, co-founder and co-CEO of Robinhood. “We want to be there and help shape the way the industry goes with a better platform at a better price.”
The beautiful part of a blockchain is that you aren’t limited to just using it with Bitcoin. In fact, many other online currencies and representations of digital value have started using blockchain as a method to prevent unfair transactions. The best part is that you don’t need to know anything about the way it works, simply plug it in and watch it do its magic. However, having a general understanding of the blockchain gives you the ability to fully comprehend the security and stability that blockchains bring to the table.
The problem is for every winner there is a loser. And the biggest winners are the ones who know what’s happening on the inside – they are the ones who can get the coin the cheapest which is kinda like house odds.

Satoshi Nakamoto has claimed to be a man living in Japan who was born on the 5th April, 1975. However, Nakamoto has always been somewhat secretive about his identity. In fact, it is unclear to this day whether they are a real person or a pseudonym. Many people speculate that Nakamoto is actually a group of developers who worked together to jump start the Bitcoin project and then disbanded when it took off. Nakamoto worked on the Bitcoin system up until December of 2010, at which point he handed over the network alert key and the source code repository to Gavin Andresen while distributing some of the key domains linked to Bitcoin amongst notable members of the Bitcoin community. Afterwards, his involvement with the project ceased.

BTCUSD update: New low made at 8342 which has taken price through the 9280 support and the 8659 reversal zone boundary as bearish momentum persists. Now that the market has made a decisive move, and compromised important levels, it is now reasonable to consider the possibilities of a range bound environment. As I wrote in previous reports, in order to go long, …
In 2009 Satoshi Nakamoto had found a way to build a decentralized coin and cash system without a central unit. From this Bitcoin was introduced to the world as the first digital currency of its kind. The “blockchain” is the master ledger that records and stores all the transactions and mining activity, trades, and purchases. At the same time, it requires validation of ownership. Technically a transaction is not finalized until it is added to the blockchain which usually takes a few minutes and is irreversible. During the time between transactions, the units are not available for usage by either side, which prevents double spending, fraud, and duplication. Each user has a “wallet” with specific information that confirms them as the owners of any specific cryptocurrency. Each user’s wallet allows them to send and receive coins and acts as a personal ledger of transactions. These wallets are built to be secure however additional measures and passwords need to be considered to keep them secure. The wallets can be stored on a cloud or an internal hard drive. The “Miners” act as the “record keepers” for the cryptocurrency communities. Through technical methods they create new coins and verify the blockchains.
It’s not unsurprising you are having issues with Coinbase, as you say their customer service is non-existent. I don’t see why you cannot open an account because you have moved to New Mexico. I know the New Mexico regulation and Licensing Department recently put out a press release warning people about cryptocurrencies but haven’t banned it as far as I’m aware. Kraken should give you access in the US, as well as Poloniex.
This is not enough thou, as this is not secure enough it needs more information to keep it save. The currency units need to be timestamped and properly processed to make them more stable and harder to copy.
