How does one choose a cryptocurrency?

Figuring out which cryptocurrency to invest in requires several key activities:

  • Understanding what the token is used for, what its purpose is, and how it will function.
  • Research who the team is behind the crypto, i.e., its founders, software developers, leadership, etc.
  • Learn about the specific cryptocurrency community. Establish how large and well-organized it is. Monitor community discussions.
  • Understand the technology behind the cryptocurrency, e.g., what a token is, what the blockchain does and how it’s maintained, etc. 
  • Have a thorough understanding of the crypto project’s vision.

How volatile are cryptocurrencies?

Crypto is regularly linked to high levels of volatility and aggressive price fluctuations. As a result, profits as well as losses can occur within minutes or hours. The Forbes article contends that cryptocurrency’s volatility stems from the notion that it holds no intrinsic value, arguing that “crypto’s worth solely derives from the willingness of individuals to exchange it for goods, other cryptocurrencies, or dollars.”

Furthermore, the article asserts that “crypto’s market value is wholly dependent on speculation, which essentially amounts to educated guesswork.” As you might already know, investing in speculative assets brings a significantly increased measure of volatility, despite the potential for making great gains.

So why the appeal?

Well, regardless of the volatility that investing in cryptocurrencies presents, there are factors at play that make this form of investment appealing to global traders. For one, transactions executed using digital currencies are oftentimes faster and simpler, possibly due to their decentralized nature. Secondly, cryptocurrencies are usually easier to access than conventional investments, provided internet access is available. In countries where traditional financial or banking infrastructures are limited or lacking, cryptocurrencies offer a more convenient way to transact.

Third, as already mentioned, crypto or digital currencies offer a way for an investor to diversify their trading portfolio. Fourth, blockchain technology upon which cryptocurrencies are based is considered very secure. This is because of the adoption of security measures like cryptography and consensus. Preventive measures are implemented to safeguard against fraud, hacking, and identity theft. Moreover, cryptocurrencies serve as a safeguard against market fluctuations triggered by inflation and other factors.

Adopting an effective risk management plan

If you choose to invest in cryptocurrencies, having a strategic risk management plan in place to protect your capital is key. This type of plan is typically comprised of 7 key components:

  • It must define the investor’s financial objectives
  • It must align with the investor’s budget and the level of risk they’re willing to incur.
  • It should incorporate robust risk management techniques like stop-loss and take-profit orders based on predetermined criteria.
  • It should set aside time for ongoing learning. This includes the consumption of books, blogs, guides, podcasts, webinars, videos, etc.
