I kinda wonder if the rise and sharp fall of Bitcoin's value has been little more than a pump and dump scheme.

It was a really good day trading gem end of 2017 and into January. There were multiple stocks riding bitcoin coattails and if you followed bitcoin and either bought or shorted the stocks accordingly there was a lot of money to be made. I have an account I call my gambling money that I use for day trade type speculating and I made 40% just playing the ups and downs on 4 stocks in December and January.

The whole market is manipulated. This is just a clearance sale, scares off a lot of investors, bargains for those that remain.

Bitcoin is mainly mined in China. There was news going around that China was going to ban it. I believe a lot of the miners were scared and put all of their earnings into buying it so they could still access the money overseas if China seized their offline earnings. Along with the war worries surrounding N. K. . There was also some speculation that bitcoin was going to be allowed to be traded on regular stock markets. As each of these fell through as likely possibilities people started selling off and taking profits. Bitcoin is probably still a bit overvalued, but not by as much as at its peak. People are starting to realize its value is more as a unique collector's item than as a currency.

It seems like it fits the definition of a security more than a currency now.

Anyone looking to get in on the "ground floor" of any of the other cryptocurrencies? It seems like that'd make sense, although it's a gamble as to whether it'll take off or not it seems.

I'm thinking about buying some ripple, if I can do it safely.

What is the minimum most brokers will sell?

I used coinbase to purchase bitcoin then i set up a binance account and transferred the bitcoin to buy altcoins. The process isn't very difficult. A lot of good opportunities to buy right now because of the major drops in price, just do your own research before investing. For anybody who thinks crypto is going away, just take a look at what the SEC and CTFC said today.

Thanks, I think right now is a great time to buy some of these currencies. I'm going to research it more.

I've traded stocks online for years, so I imagine it won't be too much different.

I missed the boat with the bitcoins:(

Default Re: Cryptocurrency

Register and verify on Binance, Coinbase, Gdax. There are no "brokers"

In order:
  1. Coinbase to buy BTC, ETH or LTC (small fee)
  2. Transfer to GDax (free)
  3. Transfer to your Binance coin wallet (whether it be BTC or ETH or LTC)
  4. Buy whatever coins you want on binance with either of the above, some can only be bought with certain coins
  5. ?????
  6. Profit

If you are interested, I can help you with these steps. Verification requires a bank account, binance is even more secure. Recommend doing 2 step verification for each account. Unless you use a Credit card, it will take a week to get your funds, but you will pay whatever price it is at when you buy

I'm not a fan of Ripple though, many better out there.

There’s no way I’m gambling on a bitcoin bet. There are industries creating their own crypto currencies and bit coin has antiquated performance issues with their software.

My speculative money is invested in marijuana.

This whole Bitcoin is like a pyramid scheme. Get in on the ground floor you are set. But to buy in now is a carpshoot at best.

Same for all the other crypto currencies. Nothing is guaranteed to make money. And unlike stock there are no real assets behind it. And unlike government issued currencies, there is no government backing. This could be good and bad depending how you look at it.

But in the end it's only worth as much as someone else wants to pay.
