The Beginner Series: Managing Your Crypto Portfolio

I see you. You’re the type of person to have Nano on Binance, XMR on Kraken, LTC on Coinbase, ETH on Kucoin, and EOS in your cryptocurrency wallet (well, maybe this is an exaggeration, but just roll with it). You remember that you had bought some MCO the other day and want to check up on it. As you try to do this, you realize one big thing — you don’t know where it is. As you become more accustomed to the crypto environment you will slowly realize that you are going all over the place. It starts with the simple, “Where is that Ethereum I got last week” to evolving into, “I don’t know which of my coins are where.” You get to the point where you don’t even know how much of what coin do you own nor how much all your assets are worth anymore. Don’t worry, I will save you.

The Beginner Series: Managing your Crypto Emotions

One of the toughest things to deal with in the crypto space when it comes to investing is learning how to control your emotions. It can be very tough to see when you invest in a coin and then it goes down about 5% right after. A very big problem for beginners is that they tend to invest in coins, and then if the coin drops even a little amount, they sell at a loss and then they choose to buy another coin. This process then rinses and repeats. The process ultimately leads to money loss very easily. It can also get to the point where it can just ruin your mood for the entire day, or even week. In fact, I would say thatlearning to control your emotions is the hardest thing in all of cryptocurrency. In this entry of The Beginner Series, I am going to give pointers as to how to avoid letting trades influence your emotions.

Bulls, Dead Cats and Bears, oh my! – My BTC technical analysis

In general, this month, what happened was exactly what I had predicted last time I wrote to you. I was a bit offset as price was consolidating a bit longer than I expected, but it happened!! Just like we said it would. My ultimate support line held firmly, price broke through the first resistance line (which is now support), so now I expect a small reversal to re-test that line and confirm a change of trend direction to a bullish one, let’s see what happens.

Blockchain, Drones & Robots, Science Function? More Like the Future!

I’m relatively new to the world of cryptocurrency and blockchain technology. In reality, I’ve only been delving myself into the world of crypto/blockchain since January of this year. However, I did have a brief encounter with it in 2013, back when bitcoin was worth approximately $60USD per coin. I thought ‘hey, this is cool! I can mine stuff on my computer and make money?! I’m in!’ Regrettably, I didn’t take it very seriously at that time. I mined for a short period then simply forgot about it. I’m pretty sure MtGox still owes me some money for what I did mine.

The Beginner Series: How to Navigate a Cryptocurrency Exchange

Welcome back, in the last article you were introduced to what a cryptocurrency was and how to start buying it. That was a very simple overview into what cryptocurrency was and the easiest way to start buying. I mentioned that you can start buying cryptocurrency on both Coinbase and Bitpanda, but those were not actual exchanges, they are just wallets. Consider that the introduction to what I am going to call The Beginner Series. The goal of the series is to be able to take the average person and be able to teach them everything they need to know about cryptocurrency. Now, for this section, I will introduce you to an actual cryptocurrency exchange.

The Beginner Series: A Beginners’ Introductory Guide to Cryptocurrencies

Are YOU one of those people that keeps hearing about cryptocurrency and have absolutely no idea what it is, how it works, why it exists, or how you can start entering the crypto space TODAY? Well, you find yourself in the right place. After you read this, there should be NO if, ands, or buts about what cryptocurrency is anymore and you should be on your way to investing pronto. Don’t worry though, everything I say will be broken down in simple terms, trust me. I’m not going to sit here and ramble on about the history of how everything came to be nor talk about how an ERC-20 token came to be (Yes, I know you have absolutely no idea what that is). So sit back and relax, let’s get down to educating!
