People are getting excited about Hempcoin (THC) because it’s slowly but surely starting to re-surface again and receive some of the media’s attention that it deserves. Even though a couple of competitors recently showed up (PotCoin and CannabisCoin) – Hempcoin is actually the oldest technologies and coins – not just in the industry – but in the crypto world altogether. Hempcoin was founded back in 2014 and its sole purpose is to act as a digital currency for the Agriculture/Farming industry and naturally – the Hemp/Marijuana field.
Here is a basic one I grabbed from gdax coinbase about approaching your taxes for 2017. Also 2018 is more harsh as each trade is a taxable event but you wont’ have to worry about that till next tax season.
Bitcoin holds a dominant place in my cryptoasset portfolio. As a result of recent changes in UK regulations I have allocated my entire personal pension (like a US 401k or retirement account) into Bitcoin via the XBTProvider ETN.
Of course, Coinbase isn’t your only option if you want to buy Bitcoins in the US. There are countless other sites, some of which charge lower fees than Coinbase so it’s worth considering other options.
The cryptocurrency trading platform you sign up for will be where you spend a considerable amount of time each day, so look for one that suits your trading style and needs. Exchanges like Coinbase offer in-depth platforms, such as their Global Digital Asset Exchange (GDAX). It’s always worth setting up a demo account first to make sure the exchange has the technical tools and resources you need.
With these protocols, some altcoins eliminate or reduce the risks associated with payment processing. Some other altcoins, however, are designed to carry out specific applications such as buying products or online tipping. All in all, before buying an altcoin, you should make sure that its purpose or application is clear to you.
If you do trading , you would surely put up time and efforts with it. Staying up for computer for how many hours would be needed as long you are trading because you would really need to see the price movements. This is the hardest of trading which is the guessing game, as we all know price are too volatile we really dont know on which way it would go thats why it really needs patience and good technical analysis.
Understand blockchain – You don’t need to understand the technical complexities, but a basic understanding will help you respond to news and announcements that may help you predict future price movements. It is essentially a continuously growing list of secure records (blocks). Cryptography secures the interactions and then stores them publicly. They serve as a public ledger, cutting out intermediaries such as banks.
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.

the reason people measure against BTC is because that’s usually the gateway to buying crypto. If you bought a crypto using BTC it only makes sense to measure performance against BTC. You can also measure against ETH. Here is a video that explains it pretty well:
No-commission stock trading app Robinhood will let you buy and sell Bitcoin and Ethereum without any added transaction fees starting in February, compared to Coinbase’s 1.5 to 4 percent fees in the US. And as of today Robinhood will let all users track the price, news, and set up alerts on those and 14 other top crypto coins, including Litecoin and Ripple.
Absolutely no! C.A.T. is a personally compiled jar (Java8) file. So all you need is to install java 8 SDK on your desktop, laptop or VPS and run cat.jar. You can even run C.A.T. on with default config to have profits.
The cryptocurrency market is insanely volatile in 2018. You can make a fortune in a moment and lose it in the next whether you trade Bitcoin, another coin, or the GBTC Bitcoin trust. Consider mitigating risks, hedging, and not “going long” with all your investable funds. TIP: If you trade only the top coins by market cap (that is coins like Bitcoin Ethereum), or GBTC, then the chances of losing everything overnight are slim (not impossible, but slim). Other cryptocurrencies are riskier (but can offer quick gains on a good day).
While stories like I Invested All My Spending Money In Ethereum (And so Did All My Friends) are funny on some level (college kids can afford to take some risks because they have a lot of life left to recover later if they lose everything) they’re also utterly terrifying on another level. What if that girl lost all her food money for the year? Not awesome.
The plunge last year got me to reconsidering the entire e-currency market. It still has potential, but if random agencies can make millions of units disappear into the ether it seems that no real solid financial structure can be built upon them. Sure, individual transactions are still cool if you store your units locally, which is the same as using cash (anonymous, untraceable), but eventually a society’s financial structure has to become more complex than the 14th century, framework wise, or it becomes a limited system with limited utility.
Many of the startups dealing in crypto are upstarts with questionable track records. But five-year-old Robinhood has raised $176 million from top investors including Andreessen Horowitz, Index, and NEA that now value the company at $1.3 billion. There’s clear long-term benefit to rolling up crypto traders and using the feature as a wedge to get them to hold money with Robinhood where it earns interest, and pay for the Robinhood Gold premium tier for $6 to $200 a month that lets them borrow between $1,000 and $50,000.
Of the 50 open positions I hold, only nine are in the red and 6 of those are Tier 4 punts where my exposure is low. None of my Tier 1 investments is in the red, and of the two Tier 2 investments which are in the red, one is a tiny leftover Ripple position of under £300, and the other was my stupid BAT entry where I times the market stupidly.

One thing I’ve noticed is that the media, especially Twitter, can have huge effects of the market. If you decide that cryptocurrency is your new thing, if this is where you want to spend your time, then I strongly recommend that you educate yourself and improve your understanding of who to follow, who to trust, when to buy and when to hold.
The first thing you need is a wallet. Only then you are able to buy cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin or Ether and protect them. We have made a guide on how to obtain Bitcoin already, check it out if you don’t already posses one.
One of the most sought after reasons why so many traders are turning to Bitcoin is the fact that it’s a completely new median and is in most cases independent of the FOREX and other exchange systems. Furthermore, this currency also moves on a global scale, so it is somewhat isolated from localized risk. Events that impact the fluctuation of Bitcoin prices are usually easily traced and often predictable as long as common sense and some knowledge of economics are used. Those of who are first starting to trade Bitcoin won’t have to sift through enormous amounts of data to carefully analyze price movements of Bitcoin, in most cases you can see clear relationship between events related to Bitcoin and its value.
Yes! With a minimum investment of $250, you can expect to make between $50-$100 per day, depending on the currency and volatility.

My original strategy was one of believing in the tech, the market and therefore the growth of my portfolio, also being aware that this bull market is a gift. I owned stable, growing crypto alongside small punts. I had no idea Ripple would fly for my first big gain, similar with Digibyte and Bitshares.
