The market took a severe nosedive this year. BTC was breaking down to 6K – altcoins went scuba-diving. BTC recovers slowly into the direction of 12k – altcoins get hit by the flying fist of Judah again. for traders new to cryptocurrency trading, it is hard to develop trust in the belief that these markets will ever discover. The Damocles sword of a possible bubble is hovering over our heads and make us hesitate to enter a position.

I’m not going to go too deep into other ways you can earn money with cryptocurrencies because I don’t do them myself. At least not right now. Passive income is great. After you make an initial investment, you mostly sit back and watch the money roll in. It’s like buying a home and renting it out – there will be some maintenance issues but it’s mostly passive income.
