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.
The trading platform is the software with which you actually will trade the cryptocurrencies. It is the place where you will open and close your trades and is the most important aspect for your success. If the platform does not perform the way you want or does not provide you with the tools you think you need then this is not the right broker for you.
For longterm investors who are willing to actively safeguard their Bitcoin, owning the underlying is clearly the way to go, but prudent steps must be taken to mitigate the risk of Bitcoin theft and/or loss of private keys (i.e., diversifying holdings across wallet/storage types, using two-factor authentication and strong pass phrases).

Robinhood will offer easy access to funds, says Bhatt. It will make bank transfers up to $1,000 instantly available to trade crypto-currencies. Any additional funds transferred will land in your account via the normal ACH transfer system.
Researching the market is to as “fundamental analysis.” By gaining the right information at the right time and understanding how it will interact with the market, it becomes easier to stay predict trends — essentially whether or not a cryptocoin will rise or fall. In addition to fundamental analysis, you also have “technical analysis.” Technical analysis is equally important, but it refers specially to studying charts and finding patters—for example, at a certain price, a coin will fall repeatedly.
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. You are then able to liquidate some of your positions and find new entry points.
But more to the point, unless you’re Gavin Andresen or someone of that ilk, you aren’t any more intimately familiar with the “true origin” of Bitcoin than anybody else is. Your hypothesis is highly speculative.
Secure exchanges that are trustworthy and have good user ratings will rank higher than their peers. Extra points are given for sites to buy bitcoin with paypal, as many users request this feature. Ranking preference is also given for sites to buy bitcoin with credit card. Check out each option on the following best bitcoin exchange list. Be sure to bookmark this page for future reference.
I’d say Coinbase is the easiest way for newbies to buy Bitcoin because the site specifically caters to those who may not be all that familiar with cryptocurrencies. Admittedly, the fees are a little on the steep side compared to, say, LocalBitcoins and Kraken, but the good thing about using Coinbase is that you don’t have to worry too much about security.
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.
Bitstamp are big in Europe and, since 2011, have moved from Slovenia, and the United Kingdom in search of sound regulatory environments. Good volumes are available for larger trades. Well received by people using SEPA and credit cards. Both euro and US dollar deposits are accepted. I like Bitstamp because they really focus on being a pure bitcoin-only exchange (update: since 2017 Bitstamp have started adding popular cryptocoins). Please read my Bitstamp critique for analysis of factors such as security, fees, and the history.
So how do you know if you should invest in an ICO? It’s not about science, it is important to pay attention to the level of seriousness of the project and its team. Look for the project’s website (does it look like a child has built it during computer school?), Who is the team behind the project – Are they hiding behind nicknames or proudly present themselves on their website? Pay attention to the Bitcointalk thread (does it exist at all?) and how the team members respond to technical questions. Is there a large community behind the project? Expect to see a Slack gathering its community. Watch out the amount raised: A project which had raised too little will probably will not be able to develop over time, a project which had raised huge amount – there won’t be enough investors left out there to buy coins on exchanges. And most importantly is risk management. Never put all eggs in one basket and invest too much of your portfolio in one ICO.

I try and keep on top of crypto news through Reddit and Bitcointalk, but there’s plenty I miss. I like cryptocointraders.ORG because it fills in those gaps. First trade earned me more then a year subscription costs.
Cryptocurrencies were invented rapidly and have transformed the commercial landscape. Due to their sudden rise in popularity, altcoins may not be a risk-free investment. Bitcoin, too, suffer from price volatility. However, altcoins, by comparison, are more volatile. As their market caps are low, altcoins might be more susceptible to price manipulation.
Disclaimer: Trading carries a high level of risk, and may not be suitable for all investors. Before deciding to invest you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite.

You should be aware of all the risks associated with foreign exchange trading, and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
Bitcoin and popular altcoins can be found on TradingView, through the free, real-time data of 25 exchanges.
