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.
BitMex – BitMex is a trading platform was founded in 2014 by three experts who have significant experiences in both the traditional financial markets and in the cryptocurrency world. They apply a maker-taker trading fee structure, with even offering a 0.025% rebate as maker fee. The exchange doesn’t charge any fees for deposits or withdrawals apart from the transaction fees on the network. BitMex is one of the exchanges with the widest spectrum of trading services offered in the world with the many different order types. The interface is designed nicely, but it can be overwhelming for newbies. In most of the cases, only experienced users will manage to find their way around the website. The website is relatively fast and responsive, at it looks good on mobile platforms as well.
The beautiful part of a blockchain is that you aren’t limited to just using it with Bitcoin. In fact, many other online currencies and representations of digital value have started using blockchain as a method to prevent unfair transactions. The best part is that you don’t need to know anything about the way it works, simply plug it in and watch it do its magic. However, having a general understanding of the blockchain gives you the ability to fully comprehend the security and stability that blockchains bring to the table.
Target and stop when starting a trade: For each trade we must set a clear target level for taking profit and more importantly, a stop-loss level for cutting losses. A Stop-loss is setting the level of loss where the trade will get closed.
By a wide margin, the right strategy for most people is to just buy and hold. Get some well know cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Ethereum, Dash, or Litecoin, put them in cold storage, stick them in the sock drawer and forget about them. Don’t read the news. Don’t worry about the wild swings or the predictions of doom from the popular press. Just buy, hold and forget. In a year or two, dig them out and sell some of them and buy a little more with the proceeds. Wash, rinse and repeat until retirement.
The first reason is that 1% is manageable. Most cryptocurrencies are moving up and down by 1% every hour. The wild bull runs are hard to find, hard to time properly, and easy to go in the opposite direction where you lose a lot.
Love Thy Crypto. The world of high finance and Wall Street can appear dry and mundane to a lot of us; there doesn’t seem to be a lot of passion involved. We earnestly believe that needn’t be the case with digital currency. Once again, don’t invest in the hopes that this is all a get-rich-quick scheme; instead, do it because you believe strongly in the concepts and the principles behind cryptocurrency.
I write here because I want my friend because I thing that every one have to know about others company’s and I don’t need to explain you why I took a financial advisor but for every one I didn’t have other option and for sure I reverted already this lose by my self. It is enough for you Mr Werner. If you don’t want to help people showing your experiences in this site or another
One advice I’d give beginner traders is to avoid falling for ICOs, or Initial Coin Offerings, in the short term and stick with the more established currencies like Bitcoin, Eurotheum and Litecoin. According to MarketWatch, an ICO is “a fundraising means in which a company attracts investors looking for the next big crypto score by releasing its own digital currency in exchange.” The ICO is similar to a initial public offering (IPO), but with a crypto twist and (as of now) no regulatory hoops to jump through.
I have experienced several bubbles, namely London housing 1984–1988, DotCom in 1998–2000, London housing again 2002–2008, the Bulgarian property market (seaside apartments and ski apartments) 2004–2008.
The clampdown in South Korea, a crucial source of global demand for cryptocurrency, came as policymakers around the world struggled to regulate an asset whose value has skyrocketed over the last year.
Once your account is funded, you can go ahead and make your first purchase. Remember, you do not have to purchase coins in full units. You can buy coins in fractions as low as one hundredth of a millionth, or about less than one-tenth of a cent at current prices. That makes bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies easy targets for speculation.
Trend trading is conducted through extensive technical analysis which includes the analysis of both chart patterns and technical indicators. When a trend is indicated, a trader is better able to forecast where the price is likely to move, and by how much it might move. However, determining trends through technical analysis is not the single indicator for future price movements. Things like risk management and trading psychology must be taken into consideration as well.
As you can see, yesterday we crossed the neckline of H&S, today we crossed Double Top’s neckline. Anything under 9k will bring it to the hell – at least to 7.6k and if the Double top will be executed in full power 6k-6.5k or lower). If you think that it will bounce before 20RSI on daily – you are extremely optimistic. GL, boys!
Don’t Rely on Guesswork. As we said, alternative currency markets can be crazy sometimes, and are often unpredictable. No matter how experienced an investor you are, don’t take it upon yourself to anticipate what the market’s gonna do next. Even those who follow least, the smart ones—will do their homework before taking action. Follow trends, read tips and news and watch videos to react accordingly.
Cryptocurrency trading is possible, but it throws a wrinkle into the idea of day trading. Day trading is the process of buying into a market at the start of the day, trading throughout the day and selling before the market closes. Historically, day trading has revolved around the markets in the country the trader resides in, and those markets are open during the day. Hense the name day trading.
You have made a good trade, but as always, the moment you sold your coin runs up again! First, meet this guy – Murphy’s Law. Secondly, read over what was written previously here and never enter position again under pressure. As long as there is profit – you are ok. Go on to your next trade and don’t find yourself losing it.

Researching the market is referred to as “fundamental analysis.” By gaining the right information at the right time and understanding how it will interact with the market, it becomes easier to stay predict trends — essentially whether or not a cryptocoin will rise or fall. In addition to fundamental analysis, you also have “technical analysis.” Technical analysis is equally important, but it refers specially to studying charts and finding patters—for example, at a certain price, a coin will fall repeatedly.
This is another reason why I like keeping my net worth in Bitcoin. If I hold it for more than a year I only need to pay 15% tax whenever I decide to cash it out to USD. That’s a much lower rate than normal income tax.
This is all fun and peachy, but how exactly are all the transactions made by Bitcoin users kept in check? Well, luckily Satoshi Nakamoto thought of a rather ingenious way to handle transactions and making them all transparent at the same time.
This is what I am looking for short term. An other view doesn’t make sense for me right now. But I will only enter in a clear up-trend, because of the low volume and risky situation. Also I am watching for divergence in the daily chart. If there isn’t one, then it would mean we will go down very far. But let’s see. I wait for clear signs and it will be exciting …
Good day Luc, i am so excited to join this forum and to follow you.I am a newbie in crypto trading.I believe i can learn a whole lot from you.I’m interested in learning how to read the trading charts and know when to place trades.Had been looking up videos and tutorials but none has given me satisfaction until i stumbled on your articles.Sadly the videos are no longer available due to security breaches.However i would be very grateful if you can teach me how to read chart and all the technical stuff involved in trading.Im already familiar with most exchanges but my major problem is reading charts and knowing when to buy or sell.I usually rely on other traders opinions to make trades.I want to be able to make decisions myself after making my own analysis.I used to be envious of people who can interprete these things wishing i could do the same.Pls i would be appreciative if you can guide me.Thanks for sharing your knowledge

“[Cryptocurrency] puts power that’s historically been held by financial institutions in the hands of the people. I think that lines up directly with Robinhood’s mission to democratize the financial system” Tenev tells me, concluding “We’re an established company and we can handle it”. The confidence to burst into the wild west of crypto could either tank his startup with a massive security fail or greatly boost its traction by alligning with what’s become a cultural phenomenon.
Update: I’ve unlisted Bittrex from the ranking while new account registrations remain closed. I’ll be re-listing the exchange once new sign-ups are allowed. Currently only corporate accounts are being accepted, which is not ideal for a cryptocurrency exchange.
On the flip side, if a big company announces they’ll be incorporating the use of a currency into their business, prices can climb quickly. If you’re aware of any news and can react rapidly, you’ll have an edge over the rest of the market.
If you are not quite happy with the daily price volatility of Bitcoin as of recent (too low as you seem to imply), try trading on margin. After you lose half of your account thanks to a sudden price drop or spike (depending on which side of the trade you are going to take), you will soon learn the value of being patient or even indulging…

However, it is impossible to give the exact figure of users because of the possibility of some holders owning several wallets and the fact that some bot accounts may also be in existence. Whatever the case, one thing is certain: the number of Bitcoin transactions is on a steady increase.
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.
When you place a buy or sell order, Robinhood gives you an estimated price, connects to a slew of trading venues, exchanges, and market centers to find the lowest price, and uses its economies of scale to improve to score better prices over time. To counter market volatility, Robinhood puts a “collar” around your trade so if it can’t execute it at close to the estimated price, it waits for the price to return or lets you know.
Not all traders make gains from trading, since this is a zero-sum game (for everyone who benefits someone else loses on the other side).The Altcoins market is driven by large whales (yes, the same ones responsible for placing huge blocks of hundreds of Bitcoins on the order book). The whales are just waiting patiently for innocent little fish like us to make mistakes. Even if you aspire to trade on a daily basis, sometimes it is better not to earn and do nothing, instead of jumping into the rushing water and exposing your coins to losses. From my experience, there are days where you only keep your profits by not trading at all.
