I never wrote any articles on this site related to Bitcoin or any other Crypto Currencies, the reason behind was I don’t consider myself as a Crypto Guru yet even after 1.7 years of Crypto trading and learning blockchain technology and every related term.
When I started writing tech articles it took me 4 years of geeking and knowledge that’s why you find my articles unique and useful.
I have seen people who monitor CoinMarketCap for a week and becomes crypto Gurus.
I knew about Bitcoin since 2012 when I was playing CS GO and was offered to buy CS GO skins for Bitcoin but didn’t buy a single coin since I had no idea about cryptocurrencies.
When BitCoin made news during Mt Gox crash in 2014 I started learning about it but went in deep learning in 2016 and bought my first Bitcoin for $1.5K back in April 2017. (I had chance to buy BTC at $650 but had less knowledge and Hard earned money which I didn’t want to put on risk).
I gave so much time in learning, came to know about Blockchain, Mining, POS(Proof of stake) and many other related terms.
Then learned trading did mistakes, lost money, recovered and today I am holding more than 24 Altcoins, Altcoins which have a strong roadmap and they seem to be future proof projects.
If you are new in cryptos and want to buy Bitcoin and Altcoins then I am here to guide you, my learning and knowledge will help you to make a quick decision.
Should You Buy Bitcoin Now?
If you have bought some Bitcoins in 2011 you may have millionaire by now but that time no one knew that Bitcoin will skyrocket in 2017.
But what if you came to know about Bitcoin late?
No problem, Blockchain technology is still an emerging technology there is a very less real-world application of blockchain at this time, it will grow in coming years.
Even if you don’t find Bitcoin a future-proof investment there are several other altcoins and Etherium based tokens with future-proof projects.
Most of the time you need to buy Bitcoin in order to buy other coins and tokens, so you have to buy Bitcoin for Fiat currency because most of the Exchanges offer to buy bitcoin with real-world money.
Although there are exchanges who offers Etherium, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin and few other Altcoins.
So the main question is Should you buy Bitcoin in 2018?
If you are totally against Bitcoin then no one can convince you, but if you think for the future you definitely want to buy Bitcoin and other good Altcoins.
Let’s go back in December 2017 when Bitcoin and almost every altcoin skyrocketed many people were interested in buying Bitcoin and they all were optimistic about it.
100 Thousands of new buyers bought Bitcoin at that time around the globe by looking at the skyrocketing price.
But was it clever buying? I don’t think so.
It was greed buying when people saw the price is going up and they bought coins so that they can make a good amount of money overnight.
But what? As of now in Feb 2018 BTC price dropped down to $7000/BTC. So did they made money?
Most of them lost it and blaming Bitcoin and not buying when the price is lesser than the half of what it was in Dec 2017.
That is totally wrong move.
Is Bitcoin Really Crashed?
If you compare it to the price it had 2-3 months ago then Bitcoin really crashed.
But, is it Crashed compared to the price it had last year?
NO, Cryptos are not going to make you rich overnight, if you are trading even from 4-5 months you may have realized it. Buy and give it time HOLD till you make a good profit. (Don’t buy scam coins and HOLD you gonna lose it).
Just look at the crash in Jan Feb 2017 and the Highest price.
It was traded at around $1200 in Feb which was the highest price in Feb 2017, is the current price(Feb 2018) lower than the highest price of Feb 2017?
So where is the crash?
It is still 6 times higher than what it was last year in the same time period.
By the time you may have understood that cryptos are long-time investments.
Here is what I have learned trading cryptos and you can apply it too in your crypto journey.
