You ought to know that no trader wins 100% of the time. In fact, many successful traders win 60% of trades – this is an acceptable figure. To hold on to your wins and minimize your losses, you will need to put in place systems that guarantee this (see the Stop Losses and Take Profits section below).
Overall cryptocurrencies can change the financial world, and for the moment it is all still being worked on. Users of these coins still do need to remain aware of their limitations and volatility for the time being and foreseeable future.
The spread of BTC/USD is intuitively bigger than the one of USD/EUR, since the market is less liquid. There is no rule of thumb, but you should expect that the spread is at least 10 times bigger in the crypto world!
Those are the first two exchanges that I used. Now I use others since each exchange has pros and cons. I wrote about the best cryptocurrency exchanges if you’re interested in getting an overview of the possibilities.

Bitcoin has been the word on everyone’s lips for the past few months, as the cryptocurrency has hit record highs. It has more than doubled since October and is now trading around $11,000, though down from its high just shy of $20,000 in December.
On 3 January 2009, the Genesis Block was mined. Block 0, the genesis block, was created at 18:15:05 GMT. On 5 October 2009, an exchange rate was established. New Liberty Standard published a Bitcoin exchange rate that pegged the value of a Bitcoin at 1,309.03 BTC= US$1. This was calculated by using an equation that included the cost of electricity in running a computer that generated Bitcoins.
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.
Yes you are correct – right now there is no hard wallet that can hold every coin. As for checking if a coin is based on ERC-20 tech, I don’t know of a fast way to do this, I normally just google individually, but there is probably a database out there somewhere. Happy trading amigo!
Interesting article. Really appreciate you bring this to our attention. Cryptos will probably go through a more extreme pattern that bitcoin went though. High ups and high downs before it becomes stable. We do need to look better at the insights of every coin. What team is behind it, is there any management. How strong is the product, is there any product at all? Personally I always use: https://www.coincheckup.com Complete Coin analysis about the team, product, communication transparency, advisors and investment statistics.
Note: Your limit buy order will only execute if the cryptocurrency meets or falls below your limit price, and your limit sell order will only execute if the cryptocurrency meets or goes above your limit price.
Just consider getting in on e.g. Auroracoin and then selling later. If you got in after the hype started and sold a little after it topped out, well, what was it, 8x value ? I didn’t even count any more :>
Many of today’s coins will die off, and the ones that survive will be colossal in significance, similar to the way Amazon emerged from the shadows of the dotcom bust in 2001. If you don’t believe this core thesis, this article might not be for you, but I’d love to hear from you.
At the end of last week, someone stole 523 million NEM coins, worth around $500 million, from Coincheck. It took about eight hours for the exchange to even notice that its wallet had been siphoned. Google the term “crypto hack” and you’ll find plenty of listicles highlighting some of the most infamous breaches, including that of Mt. Gox, which in 2014 lost around 850,000 Bitcoins.
While these are great places to get started, they aren’t the best for trading a range of currency pairs. When choosing an exchange, you may be limited by location so it’s necessary to do your research.
I’ve moved money from different exchanges many times. The problem arises when the exchange gets hacked or ‘hacked’ and 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.

Coinbase’s rates are relatively low if you pay via a connected bank account (although the downside is this can take up to five days). When you buy via bank transfer, Coinbase usually charges a 1.49% commission on Bitcoin purchases (this varies slightly depending on what country you are in).
As for the cost, most exchanges apply a maker-taker model for the fee schedule. The market makers can trade almost free of charges, while the price takers bear the trading fees of 0.2%-0.3%. Sometimes deposits and withdrawals are charges as well if the platform accepts funds apart from cryptocurrencies. The trading spreads are an important cost factor when choosing the right platform as the frequent buy and sell can be expensive for day trading if the spreads are wide.
Bitcoin has had phenomenal growth in its price and MCap since inception. If we exclude other cryptoassets, Bitcoin has been the best performing asset in the world every year since 2009 through to December 2017 with the exception of 2014. It has beaten all global currencies, equities, commodities, bonds, ETFs, real estate throughout that period. Bubbles are by definition short-lived, they do not keep bubbling for eight years.
