Something else that many have turned to Bitcoin because of is the ability to trade it with leverage. Certain platforms will give you leverage over your initial desired trading amount. For example, BitMEX offers up to 100x leverage for your trades. This means your investment of $20 can be leveraged as high as $2000. Keeping in mind that most of these platforms will have regulations and rules in place to protect their investment; it is still a somewhat heavenly environment for a trader when combining these leverages with the high volatility that Bitcoin goes through each day.
China-based cryptocurrency NEO, which is recognized as China’s Ethereum and remains as the only major cryptocurrency to be developed in China, has also seen a dramatic increase in its market valuation. In January 2018, the market valuation of NEO peaked $10.5 bln, which is larger than the current market cap of Cardano, the sixth largest cryptocurrency in the market.
Try coinsign.com, they do bank wire for high end investors. they dont have limits on sending wire. the verification is being made faster, and the email notification for each step is very useful. i have made some few transactions, send it vis SEPA, and it works. they actually do not keep balance, they are brokerage that send the BTC to the wallet directly. so far i didnt have any issues with the limits or the bank wire. worth trying.
This gives another financial technology startup and popular digital currency exchange, Coinbase Inc., a new competitor. It’s unclear how many of these new accounts either moved from Coinbase or have accounts at both startups, but each firm is a similar demographic. According to a recent survey, more than half of Bitcoin holders are between the ages of 18 and 34. Robinhood said its average customer is 30. When comparing the user bases, Coinbase had 13 million users as of late last year.
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.
To give an example, in early June 2017, Bitcoin was trading at $2,983, before losing 30% of its value a month later in July—crashing to $1,992. Then it climbed up to $4,764 in September, posting an impressive 139% gain.
If you’re on Twitter, I also created a list of bitcoin influencers that you can subscribe to and read their content. I find this to be the most efficient way of consuming information quickly before making trades.
Have Fun. Don’t just make your investment and sit and stare at charts all day. Connect with your fellow investors and share your thoughts and experiences. Put some passion and fun into your digital currency experience, and everyone wins. Life’s way too short to just sit back and fret; make your investment an enriching and enjoyable part of yours.
I am not trying to spread FUD, I am involved in business that utilizes Bitcoin. I am a supporter of what this next-generation technology can and will do. What I am not a supporter of and seek to reason in people is their inability to see the forest through the trees. From a non-financial perspective, Bitcoin is worthless to the general public (John Q public likes it because you can make a ton of money trading it, not because it represents something greater for the advancement of this and other countries in their financial sectors and future business en devours).
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.
If there isn’t a centralized exchange system or limitations and regulations fluctuate from one platform to another, then why would you choose to trade cryptocurrencies? One of the key reasons why people choose to trade Bitcoin over other currencies is due to its availability on the global scale. There is no timeframe during which Bitcoin can be traded, the market never closes and is always open to trading. Weekends don’t exist for Bitcoin, so you can trade any time of the day, during any day. Whatever is most convenient for you, wherever is most convenient for you, Bitcoin will be there for you to trade.

Cryptocurrencies are not physical coins they are electronic, a digital asset that remains as data. The technology behind the cryptocurrency controls a large part of its value which holds new technology on the secure way to identify and transfer money.
This mega-powerful currency has not only opened the gate for other currencies, but also leads the cryptocurrency world with pride. It is governed to make sure no extra Bitcoin is produced, as a maximum quantity of 21 Million Bitcoin units was agreed. When introduced, the price of $1 was 1,309 BTC. The wheel has turned, and when Bitcoin breached the $2,000 barrier in 2017, meaning 1 BTC was worth $2,000, it was certainly a meaningful milestone to Satoshi Nakamoto, the creator of Bitcoin.
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!
