In any investment situation, diversification is key to managing risk and ensuring consistent results in all market conditions. Cryptocurrencies are no different. If anything, diversification is even more important. Their prices tend to be quite volatile, so it makes a lot of sense to develop holdings in a number of different Altcoin, so if one experiences a correction, the impact on your overall position is minimal. At this point, I'm spreading my holdings across several Altcoins but the one that excites me the most is Ethereum. While it has many shared traits with Bitcoin, it uses a vastly different technology which makes it a very useful hedge. It also is much newer and cheaper, currently less than one tenth the value of Bitcoin... give or take... so a it's a…

Review of CoinXL Autotrading Platform

Review of CoinXL Autotrading Platform

Earn Bitcoins, Featured, Reviews
CoinXL is a passive trading opportunity that is currently working very well for me from a small initial investment. CoinXL relies on their own cryptocurrency trading bots... complex algorithms to detect when a crypto market is going to increase or decrease... allowing the bot to buy low and sell high. Members purchase a packages as low as 0.05 BTC up to as high as 5 BTC which are then traded on their behalf. Members are then paid a 1% return on their investment each day for a total of 150 days, recouping 150% of their investment. Members can then reinvest their initial stake and keep their profits, or reinvest the lot in a larger stake. At time of writing I'm only part way through my first cycle, so there are…

Review of the BTC Robot Trader

Review of the BTC Robot Trader

Currency Trading, Reviews
I mostly avoid robots these days, after too many bad experiences and embarrassing purchases... but this is a option worth checking out if you are new to trading and not particularly interested in learning a whole lot of theory. Basically you license a trading bot that you run on your own account on the Metatrader4 platform... Then the bot does most of the work for you. It's not totally hands-free though, as the thing with most bots is, they need to be updated as market conditions change. Most of the top programmers will do this for you, but you do still need to monitor your account and make necessary adjustments. To date I've only tried running a single bot on a relatively small account and the results have been quite…

eToro Social Trading Platform

eToro Social Trading Platform

Currency Trading, Reviews
eToro is a little different to most brokers and another good option for beginners. It offers what they call CopyTrading, when you can opt to follow the trades of another member. They buy, you buy. They sell, you sell. They move their stops or change their targets, your account automatically updates to do the same. There is a risk here that the traders you choose to follow could have a reversal of fortune, but if you spread your bank over a portfolio of traders... ie copy the trades of 8-12 proven traders... you can minimise your risk and still generate a very consistent return. And if one of them does manage to blow up, it won't have a major impact on your account balance. I've used this one myself in…

AVA Trade Platform Review

AVA Trade Platform Review

Currency Trading, Featured, Reviews
This is my main trading platform for all cryptos and forex pairs. It runs on the Metatrader platform, has very competitive spreads (FX equivalent of commissions), great liquidity (so you get your orders filled at the price you want), and I've never had a problem depositing or withdrawing funds. It is a regulated broker, well established, operating in over 150 countries for the last 10 years. They offer fantastic support and training and a variety of trading platforms, including a web-based option for any time you're away from your desktop. You can start with as little as $100, though they have some excellent first deposit bonuses that make it worth your while to start with a larger initial bank... which isn't a bad idea... Your Starting Account Size You don't…

Plus 500 Trading Platform Review

Plus 500 Trading Platform Review

Currency Trading, Reviews
Plus500 offers CFD trading in Shares, Forex, Indices, Commodities and ETFs. I've been using their platform for a number of years and it is easily one of the most user-friendly I've encountered and I've always found it reliable and stable. It was also one of the first I found offering CFD options for crypto-currencies. They also offer CFD trading for some 2000+ instruments across 20+ different markets worldwide. The other big plus for me was the fact I could deposit funds from my PayPal account, which saved a bit of back and forth when I needed to make a deposit. Obviously you don't want to be making too many deposits, so that isn't such an issue, but I find it handy to have funds paid out to PayPal as well.…

Trezor Bitcoin Safe – Hardware Wallet

Trezor Bitcoin Safe – Hardware Wallet

Reviews
Once you start to accumulate some Bitcoins, you will need to consider purchasing a hardware wallet. This is a device to store your Bitcoins that is not connected to the internet, so it's not vulnerable to hacking and theft. The general idea is to use a web-based, desktop or mobile wallet for your day to day use, but keep the bulk of your bitcoin safely out of reach, offline. The Trezor storage device does just that. It plugs in as a USB device when you need to access your bitcoins and has multiple additional security measures built in for when you're connected, and even has measures to protect you from a physical attack or if your computer is compromised. As well as the security risks of connected wallets, there is…

Coin URL Advertising Network and Link Shortener

Coin URL Advertising Network and Link Shortener

Earn Bitcoins, Reviews
Coin URL is an advertising network quite similar to the Google Adsense network. You add your website and create Ad Slots... sets of contextual text ads that you can place on your website or blog pages. Any time a visitor clicks on an ad, you get paid... in BitCoins. There are a few of these networks now, but this is my favourite due to it's payment rates and reliability. It also has a very useful URL Shortener built in. You can link to that as well from your site and earn commissions if any of those visitors sign up as advertisers or publishers. Setting Up Your CoinURL Account & Creating Ads Set up is quite straight forward. Just register below, add your website or blog URL, then create an ad…
