Recently we told you about our holdings in Vertcoin, well the results are a bit diva-like, she let’s us wait. At first $VTC took a nose dive, but as we never invest into useless shitcoins, it just becomes a waiting game if it doesn’t turn out as expected. We just setup our sell order and forget about it for some time. The upward channel is slowly forming and we are holding Vertcoin tightly, as we are confident that the pump will come with the halving by mid December. This Twitter post by Vertcoin let’s us feel even better that it is worth the wait:

Power To The People: Interview with Internet of People

Interview with Internet of People IoP


When John Lennon sang “Power to the People” in 1971 he had no clue that a digital revolution will hit us hard with its mass adoption of the internet. Maybe he would hold $IOP coins if he would be still alive, as “Internet of People” is an ambitious project which dais out to give the internet users their power back, the power of controlling their data. Their recently released Blue Paper amazed us, so we had to ask for an interview – and we got one. Enjoy reading the answers of Markus Maiwald from Internet of People. Keep Reading

Bittrex vs Binance: The Alternative We Have Been Waiting For?

in INVESTING IN CRYPTOCURRENCIES/CRYPTO COURSES
A Cryptocurrency Beginner's Guide 15


Bittrex is getting more and more out of hand – the ongoing technical glitches, the missing support, the frozen wallets, the frozen account disaster, the missing smartphone app in addition to a crappy mobile view and as last – while the big NEO run mid of November – even a complete freeze of the most attractive market, at the time it was peaking. Sure, its selection of available coins is outstanding and the available trading volume is mostly good – but do we really have to swallow all these downsides? Is there no alternative to Bittrex, so to say a potential Bittrex Killer? With Bitfinex becoming the next MtGox we need a serious alternate platform, where we can trade safely AND convenient.

Well, there is one player on the market that gains more and more attention, the user base grows exponentially and the platform is quite OK. The talk is about the Binance exchange. The exchange was founded by an ICO, went live in July 2017 and has multiple unique features to offer. With the ICO you have purchased BNB tokens, which can be traded on Binance now. Furthermore holding them in your Binance account gives you some advantages, like cutting the low fees even more by factor 2, means a 50% discount on 1% fees. If you are into scalping for example, trading many trades for small profits, this can make a real difference for your overall profits. But more on that later. Keep Reading

Having  cracking down the 7,3k again, we can expect a run up to 8k. On the other hand the volume is getting lower. Once BTC falls we expect to see it @ $6880 and Alts should shine again then. Bitcoin serves a tasty menu of cheap altcoins again and we are ready to order a nice menu. We will hold it strongly and probably just watch the show until the rush is over and we get back into the correction. We expect the coming December to be the month of the alts. Here are some of our high potential coins with a good set of news and bottom low prices right now. Waitress BTC, please take our order:

The Cryptocurrency and ICO Rulebook

in INVESTING IN CRYPTOCURRENCIES
A Cryptocurrency Beginner's Guide 22


The coin markets are a strict school – especially when you are new to the topic and just tapping in. There are 1001 ways to get burned quickly, and suddenly you hold more bags than on a shopping tour with your girlfriend. Unfortunately bags of shitcoins instead of lingerie. Cryptocurrencies are soaring, and therefore you will notice a growth of worthless altcoins and scammy ICOs.

In this post we collected the most important learnings for cryptocurrencies and ICOs – use it as a rulebook and you will be more happy with your results!

Investing in Cryptocurrencies

    • It is normal to have a massive loss from time to time – on the other hand, you will have sexy 500% gains on other coins over time if you invest time to do your research correctly. It is always about to get more heavy gainers and to weed out out the losers fast.
    • Stop investing in hyped coins once they increased already very much. It is likely that you step into it at a peak and end as a bag holder. There are pump and dump groups that are responsible for this short-term growth and merely hop to the next dead coin for a quick profit. Don’t just feel that something is right – use your analytical brain to decide where you invest.
    • Don’t get scared if Bitcoins soars or drops – it affects the altcoin market negative, yes – but this won’t last long. What did you buy first when you entered the cryptogame? BTC maybe? And then you took a % and invested it into altcoins, right? You are not alone with that. So don’t shit your pants, just sit it out and don’t look too often at your portfolio. The money will flood into altcoins again over time.
    • Check the projects you invested in twice a week. Follow them on twitter and check if they are active.
    • Don’t develop an emotion to your coin, don’t think this or that is cool and they used a fancy graphic or have a fresh new website. Only the numbers count and the ROI they generate for you, nothing else.
    • Check the GitHub of the projects. If there are months without any progress, get out.
    • Once a new coin hits the exchange, the time has shown that is usually hitting its all-time high after one year – and many of them never reach these heights again! Keep that in mind and create selling strategy. Don’t get too greedy. Have a plan, get in, get out, determine the next project with your research strategy. Get in, get out.
    • For the most of the coins that are worth it to invest in them, Bittrex is enough. There are exceptions though if you look at WTC for example.
    • Get a hardware wallet, once your funds grow. We recommend a Ledger Nano.
    • Don’t use futures and margin trading as a newbie – crypto is volatile enough for high gains, and the risk is much lower without any leverage.
    • Always have some free BTC in your exchange wallet for quick opportunities.
    • Never trade outside an exchange, if there is no escrow. Just don’t do it.
    • Use Twitter, follow all the coin companies to stay ahead with their news and find exciting sell opportunities.
    • The young crypto market is driven mostly by the news and by emotions. Check coinmarketcal.com to stay ahead of what is going on.
    • Share the knowledge you gain with the community. Be helpful. Get involved and get your rewards. Once you start building your contact base, you probably will get some info.
    • Don’t ask on internet forums and facebook which coins you shall invest in. Most people are clueless like you but will shill you the coins they hold themselves, due to their wishful thinking. Remember No moon, no lambo, just hodl.
    • It is your money – don’t use shitty passwords. There are many bad guys much more smart with computers than you. So stay safe, save your passwords non-digital only.
    • Mining is not really rewarding anymore in the most cases. Before you stack up tons of graphic cards, do your research like with any investment you would do.

ICOs (Initial Coin Offerings)

  • For ICOs: If you as the group of investors can buy only less than 50% of the total amount of tokens – stay away.
  • If you missed getting into an ICO, don’t worry. Past has shown, that once these coins hit the exchanges, their value will often drop below the ICO price so you will be able to get it even cheaper. This happens especially on big ICOs with massive marketing campaigns. Whenever newbies have to wait months for the release of their tokens, they tend to act emotionally. Once released they urge to transform it back to BTC or ETH somehow and sell it without waiting for the gains.
  • If you invest in an ICO, make sure that you have the patience to wait for the results. Just don’t sell once they release the tokens and it hits the exchanges. Good projects need time!
  • Overly marketed ICOs will often fail – always check the MVP and if it looks trashy to you, don’t expect it to better later.
  • The most significant ROI is possible with the right ICO picks.
  • Don’t invest into overhyped ICOs and ICOs that pop up everywhere with ref-codes.
  • Watch out for underdogs instead of hype ICOs. See an example in our comparison between Halo and Cobinhood.
  • Check the team – each of them. Check the roadmap. Check if the token has a use on its own. Check the MVP.

The current run of  is amazing, but unfortunately not so nice if you are heavily invested into altcoins. The skyrocketing of BTC leaves the altworld baffled, as most of them went south, taking a bath in the deep red sea. How ever the situation might be for you right now, with such challenging situations often come great opportunities. We have our eyeballs glued on a great project, whose price has taken a nose dive due the current blood bath. We are talking about…
