Trading cryptocurrency?

Recommended Posts

If you have crypto on an exchange and the sole holder of the private keys dies, nothing happens to that crypto. It's frozen and can't be moved, so in effect, noone owns it.

 

There have been multiple horror stories of people losing crypto that's stored on exchanges. So, don't keep your crypto on an exchange.

I've just got into trading cryptocurrency and been doing moderately well and I'm currently looking into buying a  crypto trading bot !

Hello,

Please can you send me a link from where I can purchase the bot that you've talked about ?

Honestly wouldn't bother with trading bots, most people I have spoken to consider them a bit of scam.

Off on a bit of a tangent here, but it may be of interest to others...

I've just tried to sign up with eToro - name, address, NI details, date of birth... all the usual stuff that you'd expect on an application form.

They've accepted a suitably blacked-out credit card statement as proof of address, but have refused a jpg of an expired passport as proof of ID. (My argument is that the passport may've expired, but I haven't!)

They're continuing to ask for some form of photo ID, but will only accept something with a colour photo...and my driving licence, albeit valid, only bears a black-and-white image.

I can't think of anything else that would qualify, and I'm certainly not going to splash out on a new passport just for the sake of it!

Wondering how Facebook's Libra will impact other cryptocurrencies. I'm thinking it will be mostly positive? If Facebook make the acquisition of (fiat to) Libra a smooth easy process, and Libra is tradable on crypto exchanges for bitcoin, litecoin, ether, etc. That can only be positive for cryptocurrency in general?

 

Is that a fair assessment, what do you think? Any downsides to this?

Yes the main downside would be if Facebook make such a good job of it alot of other cryptos might end up becoming redundant.

 

Alot of value currently is derived from the price of Bitcoin, which is not great really because on the face of it Bitcoin is pretty rubbish.

As a currency it's hopeless, the network just can't cope with high transfer numbers.
