Nearly a decade later, a web-based payment system was developed and is still used today — PayPal. By using money online, the idea of moving traditional currencies between different end users gained momentum. PayPal further established the web’s credibility as a powerful medium of sending/receiving currencies. Afterwards, many similar services such as e-Gold and WebMoney were developed.

Cryptocurrency Trading is the Forex (Foreign Exchange) of cryptocurrencies. This means that you are able to trade different cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Ether, Litecoin for USD. Most Altcoins (cryptos that are not Bitcoin) are paired with Bitcoin. The bigger are also paired with fiat currencies.
Edit: It should be noted that many people involved in the trade of crypro assets either buy and hold for extended periods of time, or supplement their trading with the assistance of market-prediction algorithms (research “bot/algorithm trading”). While you can still be successful day-trading cryptocurrencies, there’s a real possibility that you could be going up against machines programmed to beat you. Best of luck!

Day trading is a job – Successful day traders make small gains on a regular basis, so it’s really just grinding out a job. It’s not a get rich quick scheme. I know a lot of people in crypto have this romantic idea of day trading, but in reality it’s just another job that you grind out. If you think you are going to double your money everyday, you will lose. You are basically earning a paycheck, putting in hours and making consistent gains everyday. If you look at day trading like this, you will do much better.
One day specifically stood out, I was trading Tesla long and short all day and had made around £2k. I didn’t manage to close out a short position before the day had ended and overnight Tesla announced record car orders. I was trading leverage, and when the market opened in the morning, I had lost £4k. My heart sunk and I felt sick.
I seriously doubt it. The markets are way too volatile and there are too many new coins that spring up and turn out to be just a flash in the pan. Maybe once things stabilize a little, sure, but as of right now, the market is just too young.
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.
As an ardent supporter of honest hard money, it was at first difficult for me to grasp Bitcoin. If I can’t hold it in my hand, how can it be real? After hour long conversations with my friend who preordered a mining unit a year and a half before its manufacture, he had convinced me of one of the values of Bitcoin – that it is tied to real work and is finite.
At first, it will not be profitable for you, for you will need to have ghe experience first, do not just follow the hype on social media or any other platforms that will advise you that a certain coin is going to be bullish, you need to also make your own research, there will be times that you will be greedy and then loose at the end, do not let this bring you down,you are trading to gain profits, and loosing is a part of it, and once you get a hang of it, you will can earn around 100-200 usd in one sitting, and it also depends on how much fund you have in your platform to determine your gains.
The project went live in 2015 but by 2016, the value of an Ether skyrocketed to $14 per coin. If you spent $100 then, it would have given you 250 Ethers and by the end of 2 years (in 2016), that would have been worth $3,500.

Furthermore, although I’m not sure this is what you were trying to convey, I highly disagree with the general thrust of the idea that the powers-that-be are, for all intents, omnipotent demigods who can pull the wool over our eyes with their elaborate machinations decades in advance. I wouldn’t go as far as to say that the emperor has no clothes, but you give them way too much credit.
Coinbase gives users the option to store coins in what it calls ‘the Vault’ (a more secure location because allegedly not even Coinbase can access coins in the Vault). This is good because security can be a concern with some of the lesser known sites. In short, Coinbase is a trustworthy brand and a safe and secure place to buy Bitcoin.
BTC is my base currency right now because I believe in it as a store of value, and I believe that its value will keep increasing against fiat currencies. However, if I stop believing in the future growth of BTC, I can easily sell it for USD and continue my strategy of 1%/day growth with USD as my base currency.

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.
I am not a tax advisor. This is a simple overview of what I keep in mind as I trade. My accountant handles my taxes, and I advise you to get an accountant to do the same. Keep in mind that this is US-centric. You need to double check if this is the case in your country.
One advice I’d give beginner traders is to avoid falling for ICOs, or Initial Coin Offerings, in the short term and stick with the more established currencies like Bitcoin, Eurotheum and Litecoin. According to MarketWatch, an ICO is “a fundraising means in which a company attracts investors looking for the next big crypto score by releasing its own digital currency in exchange.” The ICO is similar to a initial public offering (IPO), but with a crypto twist and (as of now) no regulatory hoops to jump through.
