Bought at 108, sold most at 17-18k. It's all good.
By value or no of coins?
It would have been very tempting to sell some at x10, x50, x100 before cashing out at 162 times profit.

Re: Get started trading crypto currencies

By value, I bought at 108 bucks sold most at the level stated. As for why I didn't sell... I couldn't, I would have been happy at 5x. There's a whole story behind my accidental foray into the world of crypto. Thank you Ricardo!

Amazing how many people manage to buy low and sell high.....


It's so rare to hear about somebody who bought high and sold low though.....

Re: Get started trading crypto currencies

Down over another 1000 @$3717 since I recently bumped the thread.
I know I don't get the bigger picture hawevser the next resistance levels are around $3500 if it breaches that then expect $1700 fairly quickly.

Re: Get started trading crypto currencies

I'm starting to dabble in some of the new cryptos (e.g. Nano Coin & IOTA) that take advantage of directed acyclic graph (DAG) data-structures. Essentially DAGs enables cryptos to ditch mining and perform secure cryptocurrency transactions that are feeless, instantaneous, and energy efficient (8 million times more efficient than BitCoin).

Who knows if they'll ever get their heyday, but it's a much better and greener technology than BitCoin. And I don't mind supporting it.

I'm also keeping a close eye on the Ethereum update "Ethereum 2.0", which promises to cut its energy use by 99% by switching to "point of stake" transaction verification.
