Following the recent hard fork that happened with Bitcoin in early August 2017, where the network split into two separate blockchain versions after a majority of miners decided to create a new branch, a new coin called Bitcoin Cash (BCH) was awarded to every Bitcoin (BTC) held prior to and through the fork event.
Sometimes you think you see a chocolate pudding, and it turns out to be a bowl of shit. It all looked so well for the HempCoin ($THC) when we wrote our Hodl That #8, and at first, the plan seemed to work out nicely, even with the bitcoin moves that massacred altcoins across the board. The support around 2k sats held bravely and once the team behind $thc published their new whitepaper, with further masternodes and other significant pieces of information for a bright future the price went up slowly. And then it went it south. It dived deeper then Hagbard…
The customer only actually holds the BTC if they then go through the process of sending it from their exchange wallet to another wallet, for example on their smartphone, and that usually incurs fees. Given the large amount of BTC held by just a few wallets — likely owned by exchanges — it’s clear many customers don’t bother to take possession of the BTC themselves.

Hey Will. Thanks for the helpful guide! I’ve just gotten into crypto and found this info extremely useful. Just a question regarding how you keep your alt coins safe. As far as I can tell, you can’t keep many of these alt coins on a Trezor hard wallet, so do you just use something like My Ether Wallet instead? Cheers mate! Here’s to a cracking 2018!!

But here are the basics… a blockchain is a continuously growing list of records, called blocks, which are linked and secured using cryptography. By design, blockchains are inherently resistant to modification of the data, and serve as a public ledger of transactions between two parties. To date, the best analogy I’ve heard for blockchain compares it to a Google Doc:
Robinhood runs a relatively lean operation, which allows the app to forego typical trading fees. Unlike similar stock trading services like E*Trade and Scottrade, Robinhood does not employ sales representatives or national marketing campaigns, meaning the platform incurs less overhead costs. The company profits by collecting interest on the money customers give Robinhood to hold. It also sells Robinhood Gold subscriptions, which give customers the ability to borrow money from the company for trades.
“There are great concerns regarding virtual currencies and the justice ministry is basically preparing a bill to ban cryptocurrency trading through exchanges,” Park told a news conference, according to the ministry’s press office.
First of all, the information is not even close to evenly We’re all playing with partial information and a fog of war. Even worse, we all have varying degrees of ability to process that information. Meaning all of us are kind of stupid. If you’re not that bright, it doesn’t matter how much info you have, you won’t be able to do shit with it. Go directly to Dunning-Kruger and do not pass go.

Have a strategy – If you plan on day trading, you need to have a strategy. This goes with every form of investing, but it is absolutely necessary in day trading. Don’t just sit at the computer and look for random coins to try to invest in. You need to have a strategy and that strategy has to fit your style, your budget, and your risk profile. Do you plan on doing technical analysis or fundamental analysis? Do you plan on following social media and the news for tips? Do you have a list of coins you are going to watch daily so you can become very familiar with their price action and only trade those coins?

Bitcoin sank on Monday after website CoinMarketCap removed prices from South Korean exchanges, because coins were trading at a premium of about 30 percent in Asia’s fourth-largest economy. That created confusion and triggered a broad selloff among investors.
But ICOs or coins newly released on the exchanges can be great investments. Beetcoin played the IOTA new release on Bitfinex like a master. He turned 10 Bitcoin into more than 200 Bitcoin. He bought the $IOT Over the Counter (OTC) some time before Bitfinex listed it. He was ahead of the herd.
The reason you do this is because eventually you will go through a losing streak of trades, it will happen. If you are using a large portion of your bankroll, you will be losing leverage as well which you will need to get back your losses. What that means is you need even larger returns just to break even. So every losing streak needs to have an astonishing winning streak right after just so you can break even. As you can see, that is not going to be the case every time and eventually you lose too much and you don’t have the money needed to get back to even.
