The ICO is considered unsuccessful if the money raised is insufficient to meet the minimum funds required. In that case, the money is refunded to the backers. But if the necessary funds are successfully raised within the specified period, it is used in initiating a new scheme or in completing a current project.
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.
I day trade and swing trade crytpo on Binance.com, http://Bittrex.com and the dreaded EtherDelta.com. It is very risky but profitable if you time it right. I write info on various coins and ICOs on Cryptocurrency Trading – Day and Swing Trading – Bitcoin, Ethereum News
Risk Management: little pig eats a lot, big pig gets eaten. This statement tells the story of the market profits from our perspective. To be a profitable trader, you never look for the peak of the movement. You look for the small profits that will accumulate into a big one.
Coinbase and Robinhood were founded around the same time about five years ago and are part of a small crowd of fintech startups with valuations exceeding $1 billion. Coinbase, one of the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchanges, makes money by charging the buyer and seller a fee. It’s easy to see why Robinhood wants in on the action. While Robinhood added more than 300,000 accounts in November and now has more than 3 million users, Coinbase has grown more rapidly, to more than 13 million as of late last year.
BTC can be traded 7 days a week and 24 hours a day. There are no official exchanges that are tied to time or have a weekend or public holidays. There is also no official course and official price. All this creates just perfect conditions for arbitrage;
Once you’ve verified your identity and connected a payment method, you’re ready to buy cryptocurrency. Click over to the Buy/Sell page any amount of the coin of your choice. Note, for trading purposes I recommend BTC or ETH — as I’m not aware of any LTC markets.
Why? Because the people that didn’t cash out during the pump (called “bag holders”) don’t want to sell their coin at the bottom, at a much lower price. It goes without saying that if the price of a coin you’ve bought moves upward quickly, it’s best to cash out, back into Bitcoin. And If it’s a good coin that you want to invest in for the long term, make sure you buy back in after a dump. Sometimes it is better to focus on accumulating good coins rather than making more Bitcoin, because a good coin will always rise again.
Digital currency is our future and there is money to be made with digital currency. I know banks dont like it because all of the fees they have been charging for years and we didn’t have a choice but to say ok…..digital currency is our option, that gives us choices!
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.
It requires too much time, and I want to work the minimum amount each day, my trading time is less than an hour a day. Yes I now write about crypto but writing is a pleasure, it is one of the things I have always wanted to do. It is using my time for what I want. Just check how often I Tweet compared to the day trading experts. A few a day because I am busy doing other things than looking at the market.
It is too stressful. Medium to long term holding is working for me and giving me the returns I need for the lifestyle I want live. Why do I want to get into the stress of entry and exit points, watching the markets continually?
Cost: The cost is 0.1015 BTC i.e. $1,167. This is the maximum you can lose should the price fall by 10% to $10,500. If the price was to crash to $5,000 your loss is still limited to $1,167. This is the beauty of the Bitmex contract. Trading Futures Contracts on the CME, for example, there is no such limited risk facility — you can lose a lot more than your initial margin.
Each blockchain transaction can be coded with more conditions and information put into the transaction. Essentially, this gives the users an opportunity to generate what many call a Smart Contract. For example, let’s say you are starting a new business and are looking for a certain amount of investors with a promise of making money back within a period of time. With the help of a Smart Contract, you can code these conditions into the transaction and ensure that it will only proceed if you have enough investors. The beautiful part about these Smart Contracts is that they are transparent on the blockchain, meaning you can’t simply modify the transaction once the investors have paid their share and end up scheming them over. Once the transaction has been made, all of its conditions are set in stone.

Too many people look at day trading as a way to fast and easy money, faster than working or regular investing, and that’s not the case at all. Day trading is simply a job, you do the job everyday and make a little money everyday, and over time that money adds up.
