We see the cryptotrading as a great opportunity to make good money. Many coins quadruple their value in less than a week. Though you always need to be cautious, because there are lots of fake coins, pump & dumps, schemes and ponzis.
Simply put, whenever a user sends a certain amount of Bitcoins to another user, a third user verifies this transaction and publicly notates it in a ledger which is accessible by anyone. This ledger is called the “blockchain.” As time goes on, more and more users see the transaction in the blockchain and are able to verify it again. The more times each transaction is verified, the more secured it becomes.
Not all of the exchanges allow bitcoin and altcoin deposits, also many traders do not want to engage in the technical side of the blockchain technology, so for these users, CFD derivative trading offers a solution to benefit from the price changes of crypto assets. In case of a cryptocurrency CFD you can buy and sell coins just like on a cryptocurrency exchange, but without the need to wait for confirmation times on the blockchain. When engaging in day trading, quick access to funds is crucial. CFD trading however usually have wider spreads compared to the cryptocurrency exchanges.

Insinuating that learning trading skills, how to read market graphs properly, predicting highs and lows and making money is as easy as a few bucks and logging on to the internet reads like a misinformed person.

Remember, this is only when there is a reason for making a trade.

As a day trader, the news is a sacred thing for you that you have to monitor and act upon. There are many great resources that write about everything that is related to cryptocurrencies and that could affect their development. I personally use cryptocoinsnews.com and coindesk.com. Both these portals go to great lengths to provide a comprehensive and an up to date information about the crypto market. I believe that there also other great resources about cryptocurrencies, I recommend picking at least two such portals (that write about cryptocurrencies in general) and to visit them regularly. Once you have these websites selected, decide which cryptocurrency you want to day trade. Is it Bitcoin? If that’s so you might want to bookmark news.bitcoin.com. Proceed with the same strategy with other cryptocurrencies and find at least one resource that focuses explicitly on your cryptocurrency.
Bitcoin (BTC) has been engaged in a predictable up and down pattern where it absolutely crashes at the beginning of any year and then sky-rockets as the year nears its end. Bitcoin held steady at around $19,000 in December 2017, and then sure enough – crashed big time to around $6,000 at the beginning of 2018. At the time of writing, March 8th 2018, the price of Bitcoin is relatively stable between $10,000 and $12,000. In my opinion, the price will run again soon.
Just like trading stocks, there are many strategies that people live by. Many are great, many are.. um.. interesting. However, there are three basic principles that follow when investing in a cryptocurrency.
Ultimately, if you want to make money with crypto you have a couple of options. The easiest thing to do is to build a diversified portfolio of carefully selected coins and then to simply wait a couple of years. However, this is not the most effective way to make mad money. If you want to truly crush it at crypto, you need access to truly knowledgable people.
If my mind hadn’t said “it will die pretty quick” (thought like 25-35, lol) I would’ve made a fortune…never underestimate the noob traders out there who only make their decisions based on market cap or stuff.
In crypto, value investing means not buying a bunch of shit coins. ICOs happen all the time and new coins pop onto the market, promising great returns. Some of them will deliver one day. But most of those coins will go to nothing in the next few years.
The day I first heard about Bitcoin on Reddit, a friend had also called me to tell me about it. We spent most of our friendship talking about Ayn Rand and programming, so when we heard about a currency that was software and couldn’t be controlled by governments we were very interested. I purchased $600 worth of BTC and my friend and I planned on buying a mining rig.

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.
