1. Pick a Reputable Exchange

  • Before owning any cryptocurrency, it’s important to research the reputable brands in the market which provide exchange services.
  • As a beginner, it’s important to focus on buying your cryptocurrency from a trusted and reliable source. Instead of focusing on “getting the best deal”, go with the exchange with the best reputation.
  • Once you have sent a cryptocurrency payment, there are no charge backs, no banks you can call, and absolutely no way to become reimbursed.

2. Pick a Simple Strategy

The beginning of your journey into the cryptocurrency market will be hectic. You will quickly become bombarded with ideas for trading strategies. Find a strategy that’s simple to implement and maintain as you learn.

  • Remember there is no magic bullet. There has never been and there will never be a strategy which guarantees returns.
  • The most popular of these strategies is portfolio indexing and rebalancing. This is a strategy that has been trusted by financial institutions for decades, so we can be confident the strategy has been well tested and examined.

3. Automate

  • The cryptocurrency market never sleeps. There are no closing hours or holidays. Services are running every second of every day.
  • The constant requirement to be online drives people mad. Monitoring the market at every moment is exhausting. You don’t want to be online 24/7, it will turn into a nightmare, burning you out.
  • Find a service which helps you automate your strategy. There are a number of easy to use applications in the market which provide portfolio automation tools.

4. Build a Portfolio

  • Putting all your eggs into one basket is a recipe for disaster.
  • Constructing a portfolio can reduce risk and provide stability in this volatile market.
  • Instead of buying a single asset and praying for a moon, distribute risk to a number of assets and manage that portfolio by making small adjustments to your positions.

5. Keep assets in cold storage

5. Keep assets in cold storage

You never know when the sky might fall. The cryptocurrency space has a history of surprises when it comes to hacks. Funds can be lost in a hack at any moment, so it’s always encouraged to keep your assets off the exchange as much as possible. 

Being the guardian of your own bank is great, but it means you must find services which can accommodate keeping funds off the exchange:

  • One option for a convenient mobile hardware wallet is the Ledger Nano X. It’s simple, it works, and you can rest easy because your funds are secure.

6. Be patient

Although the market is volatile, that doesn’t mean the value of your portfolio will skyrocket over night:

  • Once you’ve implemented your strategy, let the strategy work.
  • Explore the intricacies of your strategy, engage with the strategy for some time. It doesn’t happen over night.
  • Enjoy the process of learning. Build up your expertise with weeks of careful research until you’ve mastered your strategy.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
