Cryptocurrency Articles

Writing cryptocurrency articles is an activity Joff Paradise embraces in his ongoing effort to educate investors. Bitcoin, the digital asset king, takes a good deal of know-how to navigate, secure, and trade. The past two years have seen a significant surge in the use of Bitcoin, with more and more regular people becoming interested. This increased adoption and curiosity don’t change the fact that the crypto-space is still complicated. A fact that has led to the loss of money by many newcomers, and that is not good for the cryptocurrency ecosystem. Additionally, the 2018 bear market cycle resulted in losses experienced by many investing based on FOMO (fear of missing out). Ultimately, this correction could have a more lasting impact than past market trends.

The over-exuberance of investors when Bitcoin and other altcoins hit all-time highs in late 2017-early 2018 resulted in somewhat of a “crypto hangover”. A good number of newbies failed to do their own research before jumping in. Reading cryptocurrency articles and trading strategies posted by experienced bitcoiners would have helped identify risks to form successful plans. Others were enticed by the equally-uneducated to invest without realizing caution was required and greed was to be avoided.

A good number prospered greatly by learning how to trade, managing risk, and taking profits. Traders who bought low and sold high, while resisting unrealistic expectations saw incredible gains. Granted, that was not easy with inaccurate news, hype, speculation, and excitement running rampant. A good many scammers made out like the bandits they were, as well.

Even though a lot of investors are in the red with investments worth far less now, the only ones who lose are those who cash out for fiat. Informed investors realize Bitcoin is here to stay and worry less about price and more about accumulation. These lower prices mean bargain buys as they increase their portfolio, never buying more than they can afford to lose.
