2. choice of crypto/coin you are going to play in. What i’m learning right now is that choosing the right crytpo is a fine balance of several things. Just because it has high volume doesn’t mean it will swing enough to be profitiable (all dependent on your investment, of course.) Most have been pretty consistent to technical analysis (TA), it seems many people are using the fibonacci retracement levels so many alts stay somewhat true to this indicator. Ichimoku cloud, RSI and macd are good to start. but remember, news is king and BTC is king so when those two start moving around, alts catch shit for a couple days.
Moreover, this research can be intense and difficult, especially for those who may not be familiar with code and network architecture. Granted, you don’t need to be a master of computer science by any means, but this can be exhausting especially when you have to do it almost every day.

Traders with no pressure: Don’t start trading unless you have the optimal conditions to make the decision to start a trade and know when and how to get out of it. Pressure almost always creates losing trades. Wait for the next opportunity, you will get there.
Only invest what you can afford to lose. Some people think this advice is in regards to simply caring about your financial future and if you are ok with risks then you can ignore it. That is NOT the case. This advice actually exists to reflect the decision making model that is required for successful day trading. In day trading you don’t have the opportunity to hesitate and you do have to take occasional gambles, if your dealing with money that you can’t afford to lose then no matter how hard you try, your decision making will be effected and you will not be risk adverse enough.
While the book is focused on traditional markets, most of the rules he puts forward can easily be applied to the crypto markets. His reasons for why new traders lose money on the very first page is worth the price of the entire book.
Bitcoin Cash (BCH) was created by the bitcoin hard fork on August 1, 2017, generated a new version of the blockchain with different rules. By switching from the main bitcoin blockchain to a new version, the software now has capacity for larger number of transactions.
Being a decentralized ledger, the Blockchain can never be controlled or manipulated by a single institution. Its design makes transactions virtually error proof, and it can also do much more than just transfer the ownership of digital currency; it can be used for transferring assets and shares of companies, smart contracts, commodities, and escrow services. This technology will likely change the future of finance as we know it, democratizing financial markets while simultaneously eliminating “banksters.”

Futures trading is also of value when you identify a crypto asset that is in a downward trend or even a death spiral, in which event you can profit by shorting it against BTC at Bitmex. Look at XRPBTC slowly sink by 90% from 21,000 Satoshis to 2,210 Sats over the period 18 May 2017 to 3 December 2017.
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
What would be a good portfolio for a newbie today, I just keep losing with these popular Altcoins? Are you seeing just as much significant growth today (like doubling) as before with your portfolio? I need a fresh portfolio today that has just as much potential as the day when you had bought into your Altcoins. Can you also give an idea of the percentages of the spreads you mentioned in your wallet? Also, with the influx of coins/icos, do you think alot of coins will lose value and it will be harder to find the gem amongst the rocks?
Try coinsign.com, they do bank wire for high end investors. they dont have limits on sending wire. the verification is being made faster, and the email notification for each step is very useful. i have made some few transactions, send it vis SEPA, and it works. they actually do not keep balance, they are brokerage that send the BTC to the wallet directly. so far i didnt have any issues with the limits or bank wire. worth trying.
It is difficult to be outdoorsy and all Thoreau-esque without a form of financial support. Hell even Thoreau couldn’t really do it, read up on his real circumstance. The exception to this are those mad men they find every decade or so who are squatting out in the middle of a national forest in Idaho, who looking at them, are living a shitty life in homes constructed of twigs and sheet plastic.

Another problem is that you are John Henry battling the steam shovel. Very smart people have built very smart algo-trading bots. APIs on crypto exchanges make these very easy to create. Can you beat these little demons with just your “dog’s breakfast” in your head (as Vonnegut called it)? Recall how Cuban’s comments seem to have precipitated a bitcoin selloff a few days ago. Was that people reacting, or was that a thousand little algo-insects doing sentiment analysis on twitter? You wouldn’t be able to beat these creatures to the punch.
The reality is such, that Bitcoin and digital currencies prices rise and drop for various reasons such as media and bad press, news events, and government statements, more people are using it and for this reason the price is rising. Their unpredictability makes it exciting for most traders. Moving forward there are discussions on how to manage the currencies and that in itself can swing the price.

Buy crypto with crypto – unclear, but does not seem to be a taxable event. This is where things get foggy. Consult your advisor, but as far as I know this is a like-kind exchange which is not taxable but must be reported to the IRS. The exchange you use will output all of these transactions so you can hand them to your accountant.
In other words, this is a website on the internet offering free information about cryptocurrency, this is not your accountant, lawyer, or fiduciary offering you professional tax, legal, or investment advice.
