Unlike fiat money, Bitcoins and other cryptocurrencies have no central bank that controls them which means that cryptocurrencies can be sent directly from user to user without any credit cards or banks acting as the intermediary. The major advantage of cryptocurrencies is that you can’t print them like central banks do to create fiat money.

Day traders need to be constantly tuned in, as reacting just a few seconds late to big news events could make the difference between profit and loss.

Futures trading is also of value when you identify a crypto asset that is in a downward trend or even a death spiral, in which event you can profit by shorting it against BTC at Bitmex. Look at XRPBTC slowly sink by 90% from 21,000 Satoshis to 2,210 Sats over the period 18 May 2017 to 3 December 2017.
Educate Yourself. Okay, we admit we have skin in the game on this one, but it’s still the truth: The more you learn and apply, the better you’ll do; that goes for digital currency investing as much as it does building a set of bookshelves.
