Because the Wolf has an in-your-face persona that rubs many people the wrong way. He loves to stick it to people who say he’s wrong. Any time he posts a call, people are quick to pounce on him and call him an idiot, a douchebag and a shill hucking trading calls. They want him to fail.
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.
I’ve moved money from different exchanges many times. The problem arises when the exchange gets hacked or ‘hacked’ and they suddenly close up shop before you can withdraw. There is little to no regulation that keeps them from walking with your money. (see: MtGox, CryptoRush and MintPal). Very few exchanges are trustworthy (Bittrex mentioned in this article is one of those imo) and even those are not immune to hacking or scams.
Cryptocurrencies are not physical coins they are electronic, a digital asset that remains as data. The technology behind the cryptocurrency controls a large part of its value which holds new technology on the secure way to identify and transfer money.

This cryptocurrency was initially created as a joke on December 8th, 2013. However, the meme based currency quickly generated a community and reached a value of $60 million USD by January 2014. Today, this currency is worth nearly $440 million USD. Although there aren’t many mainstream applications designed to use Dogecoin as a method of payment, many online users have been using this form of digital currency as a way to tip others for their creative content or services. Dogecoin is very popular amongst the social media networks. With the help of crowdfunding, the community managed to schedule a delivery of a gold coin which represents the official currency to reach the Moon’s surface by 2019. Created by Jackson Palmer and Billy Markus, Dogecoin uses Scrypt as a hash algorithm alongside a POW system to solidify all transactions.

It’s important to learn, but for now, If you’re just interested in trading and investing, having a basic common-sense understanding of business, consumer demand, and economics is enough to give you an edge over other traders (at the moment). Most of the current batch of traders are early cryptocurrency adopters, cryptocurrency “miners,” programmers, and basically people that are more tech savvy than business/market savvy.
That same day, Slush’s Pool first block was mined. Bitcoin Pooled Mining (operated by slush), is a way in which several users work together to mine Bitcoins and then split the benefits among themselves.
Interesting article Michael.. im also interested in range daytrading Ethereum but am loathed to open a centralized trading account as decentralized will be the way to go in the future. Blocknet launches March 1st and hopefully this will be the first of many. Up until then which demo platform do you think will suit to paractice this on?
Leverage Trading is the possibility to trade an amount, which you don’t have at your disposal. Normally Cryptocurrency Exchanges offer a leverage of up to ten to one (10:1). This means, that for each dollar you get 10 dollars of buying or selling power.
The cryptocurrency exchange with over 700,000 customers on board aims to eliminate the technical barriers of traditional trading platforms by using an automatic trading robot that integrates Bittrex, Poloniex, and other leading trading platforms. Basically, it allows traders to trade virtual currency without needing verification or registering at any cryptocurrency exchange. Changelly asks exchanges to suggest the best rates available on trading pairs and operates by making bids. It processes more than 50,000 BTC on a monthly basis and offers seamless and instant conversion of 80+ tokens and altcoins. Definitely an exchange I would recommend to those who are looking for a simple process, for more information check out our thorough review
I have diversified into multiple different coins and my cryptocurrency portfolio is split into several tiers of investment. I have selected which coins to invest in with care and every coin is on this list for a reason. Some of these coins cost thousands of dollars a pop, others are mere cents.
Think of this as your guide to day trading cryptocurrency and you’ll avoid most of the hurdles many traders fall down at. When choosing your broker and platform, consider ease of use, security and their fee structure. There are a number of strategies you can use for trading cryptocurrency in 2017. Whichever one you opt for, make sure technical analysis and the news play important roles. Finally, keep aware of regional differences in rules and taxes, you don’t want to lose profit to unforeseen regulations.
Events such as these can pose issues for Bitcoin-related trusts such as GBTC, depending on how such events are handled and the degree of any proceeds distributions and administrative fees. For that reason and the pros/cons noted above, Bitcoin-related securities would not be my first choice when looking at the three ways to trade this asset.
First things first, buying and selling Bitcoin isn’t even remotely close to being the same as using the stock exchange to purchase or sell stocks. On the same note, it isn’t anything like FOREX and should never be considered the same thing.
Yes!!! Finally I’ve been waiting for someone who will just explain instead of just talk. Please I hope you won’t just talk about trading with out leaving the view with nothing learnt. So I look forward to your videos and your success here. Thank you
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..
The very first digital coin to go mainstream was Bitcoin, which continues to be the most popular cryptocurrency. However, other options such as Ethereum are now highly valued in the markets. Dash and Ripple, both of which are now being offered by JAFX, are also quickly becoming top options globally.
Thanks for posting the article and super informative video! I just got into trading cryptocurrencies back in May. Started with Bitcoin & Ethereum but have recently made the cross over into trading alt-coins on Poloniex, Bittrex and Cryptopia. I’m interested to get into some swing trading and have a Coinigy account but find the site overwhelmingly complex. Your video really helped me understand what’s important in a trading platform and helping me to lay a good foundation. Thanks! 🙂
Make videos or tutorials and I’m sure the guys here will fund your effort with upvotes…win-win situation. That’s what’s great about this platform. Seems like a lot of people are interested and you seem very honest and a great teacher. The majority of us are really intelligent and can become great students.
Lots of influential actors — Governments, banks, regulators — fear Bitcoin and try to kill it on a regular basis. Bitcoin takes massive hit after massive hit, but it has always rode the punches and bounced back. Experienced traders have noted this and the advice is to buy the dip. This is the Honeybadger Trade.
If you’re looking to buy large quantities of Bitcoin, you can use OTC (Over the Counter) exchanges. OTCs specialize in fulfilling large orders and, as such, can usually execute your order a lot faster than exchanges can.
