Cryptocurrencies are digital currencies, also called virtual currencies that act as a medium of exchange and are made financially secure through the technology of cryptography, in which you can not spend the same coin twice.

Many cryptocurrencies are formed on the basis of blockchain technology. If you are looking at entering into the world of digital currencies, this is a good choice as there is so much profit to be made in this industry.

Before making any investment decisions, we should be answering these questions to ourselves:

  • Are you having any planning of selling after it reaches a peak price?
  • If yes, do you want to sell it all at once or gradually?
  • Is there any factor that might affect your decision and you sell it off abruptly?
  • What is the maximum amount of loss which you can bear?
  • How optimistic are you about making profits?
  • Do you follow the market news on a regular basis? If you’re not keen on that, you mustn’t invest.
