Cryptocurrencies are considered to have a reputation as an asset that anyone can easily capitalize on. The rapid growth of crypto assets looks extremely attractive to people who are afraid of missing out on their chance to get rich. But a desire to buy digital money is half the battle; to keep yourself afloat on the crypto market is a much more difficult task.

What is cryptocurrency?

To begin with, accounting for a cryptocurrency is called a blockchain. It is maintained collectively by all network participants who have this currency. Each cryptocurrency is programmed and identified using a complex code. Bitcoin is not the only cryptocurrency, but the first in history and the most popular. Unofficially, Bitcoin is already called “digital gold”. Blockchain (the technology, bitcoin is based on) has a significant impact on the modern conception of digital assets security. The turnover of transactions in cryptocurrencies can reach billions of dollars, but so far, investors and common users are just beginning to explore this field.

Factorsaffecting the value of cryptocurrencies?

The cryptocurrency market is developing rapidly, new currencies constantly appear and old ones disappear. The cryptocurrency market attracts users with the opportunity to protect themselves from the devaluation of fiat money. Currently, more and more stores are accepting Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies as payment methods. In some countries, crypto coins began to be used almost anywhere. Many factors can affect the rise or fall of a cryptocurrency:

  • growth of the crypto can be driven by strong demand, while speculative buying of cryptocurrencies affects supply;
  • the fall of the cryptocurrency can be caused by negative news background and rumors or actions of state bodies.

However, despite the amount of capital, a trader can find a suitable cryptocurrency and purchase it, relying on its growth in the future. Trading cryptocurrency, it is very important to follow the news of both the market in general and a specific digital asset. As in trading other assets, it is essential to be guided by technical and fundamental analysis.
