What to Consider Before Investing in ICO in the second half of 2018?

Investing in ico, Holytransaction

After the success of the very first cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, many investors are now looking for the next big opportunity to invest in. Bitcoin opened the market for more cryptocurrencies and newest blockchain technologies to develop and grow. Nowadays, Bitcoin has seen better days, while there are over a thousand different digital currencies on the market. That being said, Ethereum is taking the lead on the market with their cryptocurrency called Ether and their newest blockchain technology development and implementation.

However, investors can’t sit and wait for years until a new company with their innovative idea starts to grow on the market. Instead, they are trying to predict the next important opportunity and invest in the initial coin offering (ICO) behind that opportunity. That way, they don’t only get to be the first to support the next revolutionizing cryptocurrency, but they also get to earn a considerable return on investment. Still, that’s easier said than done, due to the market’s volatility and unpredictability. Therefore, here are a few things to consider before investing in ICO in 2018.

What exactly is an ICO?

Initial coin offering, or ICO, is a way for companies to attract investors by offering their cryptocurrency tokens in exchange for support and funding. Simply put, it’s a fundraising method for companies to finance their new projects, by offering their tokens in exchange against other cryptocurrencies, such as Ether and Bitcoin. ICO are also similar to initial public offerings otherwise known as IPOs.

Companies sell their stocks to the public, in order for their shares to be traded on the stock exchange market. However, IPOs offer stock to the public with a security exchange, whereas ICOs are still unregulated and there are no procedures that can validate a company’s or their token’s credibility. That’s why it’s important to take your time to plan out your investments and consider your options carefully.

Conduct thorough research

Before you decide to invest in any ICOs, you have to conduct thorough research first. As mentioned before, ICOs are highly unregulated so far, which means that a bad call can cost you your entire investment. The popularity of the digital currency market has made it possible for various companies to promote their own projects and their unique cryptocurrencies. This trend has led to over a dozen ICOs being offered each day.

However, not all companies have their own blockchain technology like Ethereum. As a matter of fact, many new projects are based on existing blockchain technologies. This makes it difficult for investors to spot out good projects with the potential for considerable ROI. That’s why you must plan your investment and research the ICOs available on the market. For instance, you can check out reliable sources, such as The Blockchain Review, which can offer the latest information about the current ICOs on the market and their overall performance.

Read the whitepapers

After you’ve found a company with an ICO worthy of investing, you should take time to read their whitepaper. The main reason is that many companies haven’t even started their project yet and their whitepaper is the only thing that describes the company and their undertaking. The company itself 

might appear interesting enough to invest in, but you must be sure that it’s not, in fact, a scam. That’s why you should take your time to read their whitepaper thoroughly. The better you understand the company and their goals, the more you’ll know about whether to invest or not.

The key points you should be on a lookout for are company’s description and main information, the problem they wish to approach with their project and the solution they offer for that particular problem. Also, make sure you check out their product description and how they plan to implement, as well as commercialize, their tokens. What’s more, you need to keep an eye out for their token value and its distribution, as well as how their tokens differentiate from others on the market. Most importantly, check out their legality and how they use the funds obtained from their ICO.

Know more about the company

Doing your research and reading whitepapers is only the beginning. You have to be absolutely certain that the company you’re about to support with your investment is worth it and that you’ll actually profit from your investment. That’s why you need to learn as much as you can about the company you’re about to deal with. For starters, check out their website. You must evaluate every aspect ranging from the website design and security all the way to information a company has available on their website.

In addition, check their online activity and their presence, in order to determine how much effort a company is placing in promoting themselves. Moreover, check out their partners. That will give you insight into which system is a company using, as well as which electronic platforms they are partnered with. Checking out the legitimacy and credibility of a company demands time and effort. However, it will help you minimize the economic risks and ensure your investment is not in vain.

 

Investing in ICO can prove to be a lucrative strategy for investors. There are various ICOs on the market, but not every one of them has the potential to be the next big cryptocurrency. That’s why it’s important to do your research well and take time to consider all the important factors before you make an important decision.

MKR holders govern Dai

Maker is a decentralized autonomous organization on the Ethereum blockchain seeking to minimise the price volatility of its own stable token — the DAI — against the U.S. Dollar.

Maker smart contract platform controls and sells Dai. Indeed, decentralised and trustless, the Maker platform stabilises the value of Dai to one U.S. dollar using external market mechanisms and economic incentives. 

Eliminating the necessity to trust a centralised organisation and the hassle of third-party audits, Maker offers a transparent stablecoin system that is fully inspectable on the Ethereum blockchain.  

Maker’s Dual Coin System

The Maker Platform has two coins: Maker (MKR) and Dai (DAI).

Maker – A token with a volatile price that is used to govern the Maker Platform. Maker DAO is a decentralized autonomous organization within the Ethereum blockchain. Maker works to minimise the volatility of DAI, its stable token, compared to the U.S. dollar, with holders of MKR tokens governing DAI.

DAI – A price stable coin that is suitable for payments, savings, or collateral. With DAI, the team at MKR hopes to overcome the extremely volatile prices of cryptocurrency. The team at Maker DAO feels that stablecoins are necessary to let blockchain technology reach its full potential. Because of this, it introduced DAI, which is backed by ETH collateral.

Crypto Kings, who they are?

Crypto Kings, Holytransaction

The skepticism around cryptocurrencies, specially at the beginning of the blockchain era, was very high.

Things, however, are much more different now.
In 2017, the popularity and value of cryptos literally skyrocketed as the fame of some crypto-investors did.

The various features and benefits of the blockchain, which have allowed its incredible growth, probably are still misunderstood by many. But everybody knows someone who have become millionaire/billionaire thanks to this technology. And probably this has a lot to do with all those “normal” people who tried to invest in BTC. Money has been their drive.

Instead, (many of) the ones who earned real fortunes were prepared, competent and profoundly committed to a higher vsion.

Below, you will see a list of 15 crypto kings that are making history with their engagement in the field of cryptocurrencies. Check out the infographic below provided by our friends of BitFortune.net to learn all about these people.

5 Gold Trading Lessons for Today’s Cryptocurrency Investors

Holytransaction, 5 Gold Trading Lessons for Today’s Cryptocurrency Investors

For people who have traced the movements of Bitcoin since its inception, it’s hard to believe that it has only been around for less than a decade. As discussed here on HolyTransaction, the world’s first cryptocurrency has had a wild ride so far, from the downright bizarre (two pizzas for 10,000 BTC) to the extremely exciting. As of the start of the year, Bitcoin’s market cap was valued at $280 billion (€226 billion), with cryptocurrency like Ethereum following at impressive valuations of $90.4 billion (€73 billion).

These figures make investing in cryptocurrencies incredibly tempting, but also quite daunting. With such a young market, there aren’t a lot of set rules or trends that can help guide you on your investment journey. This is where looking at similar trading commodities like gold and other precious metals come in. After all, FXCM explains that gold trading is simultaneously one of the oldest and most exciting ways to invest in global markets, and this remains true whether in times of war and turmoil or peace and prosperity. With the right focus and lots of discipline, there’s plenty of wisdom to be uncovered from looking at the history of gold trading.

Whether you’re a beginner looking to dip your toes into the cryptocurrency pool or an experienced trader hoping to build your wisdom in Bitcoin investing, here are five golden lessons for today’s cryptocurrency investors.

Diversify, diversify, diversify!

This tip seems basic, but focusing on a single trading commodity remains one of the most common mistakes investors make. A conservative position in gold investing means a maximum of 10% gold in your portfolio, and this is something that you can keep in mind when investing in cryptocurrencies. This can not only protect you from unexpected Bitcoin price dips, but can also open up better growth opportunities with lower risks and good returns. From the over 1,300 different cryptocurrencies in existence, This is Money recommends looking into altcoins like Litecoin, Monero, and Dash this 2018.

Stay calm in the face of volatility.

Gold can easily swing by a hundred pips and reverse every few minutes, which means trading in gold requires a certain degree of thick skin and steel-like determination. These are also very handy when trading cryptocurrencies, which are infamous for their volatility. In crypto-speak, be ready to “HODL”, or hold on for dear life (your coins), even when everyone else is panicking.

Set a loss limit.

Be sure to set acceptable loss limits for your investments and avoid buying too much. Financial Times reports that even a trusty commodity like gold has its own set of risks, which means it’s healthy to set stops for each individual trade for a maximum allowable loss that you are comfortable with. Invest only what you can stand to lose, and keep evaluating your trading strategies to learn which cryptocurrencies are best suited for you.

Keep your eyes on the prize.

Whatever your feelings are about shiny yellow metals or blockchain-enabled digital currencies, Forbes claims that these are still commodities that can be sold when prices are high and bought when prices are low. Focus on market trends and see where the prices are heading, and use these to inform your decisions. Pay attention to cycles, growth patterns, and market potential to make decisions, instead of which cryptocurrencies everyone else is buying.

Security and safety is a must.

Last but not least, invest only on trusted trading platforms and certified services. Millions of people have been victimised by gold-related scams and fraudulent brokers over the years, and it’s important to carry the same level of vigilance when carrying out cryptocurrency wallet transactions. Keep your money and investments safe with your free digital wallet here at HolyTransaction.
