24. Speed Lesson: When Second Tier Exchanges Start Having Service Disruption

In the last few weeks second-tier exchanges (smaller than Coinbase) have been having service disruptions as more and more coin buyers begin rolling into the market. As these newer people get frustrated with lower quality service, they will migrate to bigger exchanges like Coinbase, Bittrex or Kraken. These exchanges tend to push the bigger currencies (Coinbase, for example only has four major coins). This then results in more interest and buying of those [...]

The best teams in the industry will have these qualities and more. Evaluating a team is one of the most difficult aspects of evaluating a coin, especially [...]

19.Speed Lesson: A HUGE Advantage That You Have–Most people are unaware about cryptocurrencies, and an absolute minority use them.

If it is important to look at real world usage as a key criterium when considering investing in cryptocurrencies, then there is great news for investors: “you ain’t seen nothing yet”.

If one of your coins hits big and you only have 10% of your money in that coin, your big return is mitigated. I stick with four coins, and when a coin price dips, that is when I accumulate more.
