More than ever, every trader needs to be armed with knowledge and a good analysis of all these digital coins to realize the profit.
There are three major ways to make money from cryptocurrencies:
I. Invest in coins.
II. Trade coins.
III. Mine coins.
Each of these has its own facet and uniqueness.
Crypto mining – although difficult and time taking, is a good option for many traders.
Many will prefer exchanging some few USSD for coins but with a good and quality miner, the complexities of mining are minimized.
To mine, you may have to purchase a good rig which might be somewhat expensive.
However, with time, you will make profits.
To start your trading business, you need to get familiar with trusted companies that are known with buying, trading and storing coins.
Also, to be on the safer side, one should establish himself using a prominent coin before going with unfamiliar ones.
Bitcoin is a good example you can use to start your trading business, the reason being that bitcoin has dominated the market for a while and proven to be one of the most trusted and secure coins.
If you decide to go with startup coins right away, you must be very certain about the source, security, and future of such coins.
After establishing yourself in trading with bitcoin, you can begin to trade with other similar coins (known as altcoins) as well.
Coins such as Litecoin or Ethereum should be your first consideration.
At this stage, you are not advised to go into “margin trading.” It takes a while to get to this level of trade. Never do this unless you are sure you are an expert and you can risk losing your coins.
