Three Cryptocurrency Investment Tips to Newbies

Cryptocurrency investment has become the new deal in the financial market. The popularity of this investment field has attracted a lot of interest with people asking “what cryptocurrency investment is all about.” From a few questions I have encountered and my experience in the field, I have gathered three essential lessons that crypto investors should know. Many people go out there and buy a cryptocurrency of their choice, expecting the coin to make them billionaires overnight, or expecting nothing but continuous rise in price. The complete belief in the cryptocurrency makes people sell their properties or even use their life-saving earnings to invest in them. This post seeks to give three lessons focusing on the aspect of cryptocurrency investment that deals with buying digital assets and selling them when the price rises. Do Not Expect 1000% Rise overnight. Even though the cryptocurrency market is highly volatile and can rise by an unexpected magnitude, no cryptocurrency investment scheme can give you a 100% guarantee of a massive return within a short period after investment. There has been a lot of times experts have predicted an insane rise in the price of Bitcoin and other altcoins but ended up moving in the opposite directions. John McAfee, a renowned cryptocurrency expert, predicted that Verge would trade at $15 by mid-2018, but what happened? Verge ended up trading at $0.002. The cryptocurrency market is very responsive to harsh environments, ranging from government crackdowns to cryptocurrency exchanges filing for bankruptcy. Regardless of these, the market can make a bull run at its own time. Do Not Invest in Cryptocurrency With Life Saving Earnings In late 2017 to early 2018, there was a report that a family had sold their properties to invest in Bitcoin. Around that time, Bitcoin was trading above $10,000. Their reason for making this bold decision was probably influenced by how Bitcoin made a great run from $2000 to over$10,000. That was a dangerous decision. It is right that risk-taking is part of the investment, but weighing the cost and benefits of something before making a decision is essential in investment as well. The price of Bitcoin fell deeper and deeper after investing in the asset with money made from selling their properties. No matter how much you expect the digital asset to rise, invest an amount you can afford to lose. Bitcoin can crash like the Dutch Tulip Mania. Expect a Price Fall After Investment. After I successfully guided a friend to buy Digibyte, he asked me that “So when will I get rich?”. This question runs through the mind of many cryptocurrency investors, and they feel disappointed and deceived when they realize the price is not making any movement or the price is continuously falling. When you invest in any digital asset, expect a price fall and a market pullback. The cryptocurrency market does not rise continually without a fall. This kind of feature is dominant in Bitcoin price history. However, know that a cryptocurrency can rise by twice the percentage it fell.

DigiByte Trading at .786 Fibonacci Support; Are the Bulls Aiming For $0.03?

DigiByte has seen a small 1.15% price hike over the past 24 hours of trading. The cryptocurrency is currently exchanging hands at a price of $0.0237 after seeing a further small 1,72% price increase over the past 7 trading days. The market has been trading along the path of a long term upward sloping trend line and has remained confined above it for many months. The CEO of DigiByte had recently publicly aired his opinions relating to Binance recently on Twitter. Tate went on a Tweet storm to explain why DGB has never been listen on Binance. Last summer, after completing many legal requirements to be added the DGB team refused to pay a donation fee to the Binance team to be listed on the exchange. Binance had long been known to be charging extraordinary fees to be listed on their exchange which had recently gotten out of hand. Binance have recently come out and have stated that from now on they will be donating all of their donation listing fees to charity. However, Jared Tate went on further to state that he has been told to publicly apologise to CZ, the owner of Binance, in the hopes that DGB will be listed on Binance. DGB is currently ranked in 36th position in terms of overall market cap across the entire industry. It currently holds a total market cap value of $259 million as the 56 month old coin is currently trading 81% lower than its all time high value. Let us continue to analyse price action for DGB over the short term and highlight any potential support and resistance zones. Price Analysis DGB/USD - SHORT TERM - DAILY CHART https://www.tradingview.com/x/MnlYNx9k/ Analysing the market from the short term perspective above, we can clearly see that upward sloping trend line which has been supporting the market for over 10 months now. Each time the market approaches this level the bulls defend the area aggressively causing price action to rebound. We can also notice that price action is trading at a strong area of combined support with the .786 Fibonacci Retracement priced at $0.02352. This Fibonacci Retracement is measured from the 225% bullish price increase when the market started from a low of $0.01574 on the 1st of April 2018 and extended to a high of $0.0522 on the 3rd of May 2018. Moving forward, the support at $0.02352 is expected to hold strongly due to the combination with the upward sloping trend line. If the bears to manage to penetrate below this level of combined support we can expect immediate significant support below to be located at the .886 Fibonacci Retracement level priced at $0.01986. Alternatively, if the bulls can regather momentum and push price action higher from this level of support, we can expect immediate resistance above to be located at the psychological round number handle at $0.0250. Resistance above this can then be expected at the 100 day moving average which currently floats around the $0.027 handle. If the bullish momentum can push the market market further higher we can expect more resistance above to be located at the .618 Fibonacci Retracement level priced at $0.02967 followed by the .5 Fibonacci Retracement level priced at $0.03399. The technical indicators within the market have recently slipped into the favour of the bears at this moment in time. The RSI is currently trading underneath the 50 handle which indicates that the bears are in control of the momentum within the market. If the RSI can break above the 50 line we can expect this market to move up and make some gains.

Binance Exchange User Loses Funds to Hackers, Says Binance’s faulty Email System Caused it

Following previous cases of irregularities and other issues with Binance exchange, another customer has gone on Twitter to say his account has been hacked and all funds withdrawn by an unidentified hacker. The user who did not identify himself said although his email was not hacked, he did not get any warning email from Binance despite the company’s claim that no withdrawal can be made without email confirmation from the user. Binance has confirmed that an unusual login was done on the account from a different country from which the user claims his account has been hacked just last month, in which case he froze the account. He decried Binance’s reluctance in freezing or suspending the account despite the fact that the company noticed the unusual login. He also told Binance that their mail system is “working unsystematic” and made a video of himself logging in with a new IP Address with no email alert from the company as a warning. He said that Binance does not care about users and he has written the post as a warning to other users to exercise caution. Surprisingly despite Two Factor Authentication used on the account, the hackers were still able to hack and reset the password to access funds and sold the Altcoins but withdrew Bitcoin. Commenting On this issue, binance founder Changpeng Zhoa said, Sorry for your loss! I looked into this issue. Before your funds were lost, you insisted we unlock your account, even sending us your 2FA key (through email), the hacker already had access to your email. We advised you to change your 2FA, you didn’t, you had 48 hours to. Sorry! This is not the first time a Binance user is complaining of problems with their account. Earlier this month, another unidentified user wrote on Reddit that his account was locked down for no clear reason and efforts to find out the reason proved abortive. The user accused Binance of “arbitrary behaviour and a lack of transparency” saying there was no reason to lockdown his account when he met all the requirements for verification. The company had also been called out by DGB Founder Jared Ted in a series of tweets saying Binance demanded a bribe from him to list DGB in its platform despite its earlier promise to list the asset for free. He said Binance’s legal and financial conditions are too much for most assets despite its claim of listing assets freely with no fees. Binance is the world’s biggest crypto exchange and the chain of complaints could really deal a deadly blow to its reputation and customer base. Will the company still retain its number one spot among crypto exchanges in the world if trends like this should continue?

Digibyte (DGB) Soars as the Wider Market Trades Sideways

Today Digibyte (DGB) soared 10.5% to rejoin the top 30 cryptocurrencies as the wider cryptocurrency market trades sideways. The price could be partially driven by the announcement of the first-ever Digibyte London Meetup on November 17. At this point, nobody is sure what to expect from the meetup, but there is always the possibility of a big announcement or a reveal of a new product at crypto-conferences. At the time of writing DGB is up 1.53% and the price is $0.0233. (RS)

Digibyte Price Surges As DGB Enters the Crypto Market Cap Top 30

Sundays are usually very interesting days for cryptocurrency trading. Not because the biggest gains usually materialize, but primarily because there can be some interesting changes few people expect. Digibyte, a currency rather often overlooked, is making some positive strides. DGB has also reclaimed its spot in the market cap top 30 over the past few hours. Digibyte Price is Tearing it up Not too much is happening in the cryptocurrency top 20 right now. That is not unusual, as most of the attention is on Bitcoin’s and Ethereum’s uneasy momentum. This usually drags all cryptocurrencies down with it, though Digibyte is an interesting exception at this time. Over the past 24 hours, the DGB price has noted a strong 10.5% increase over USD, combined with a near 10% gain over Bitcoin, this altcoin is suddenly hitting its stride during these rather odd times for the crypto market. Any positive momentum in the altcoin department shows investors are in fact keeping tabs on the various cryptocurrencies. There is some excitement surrounding Digibyte as of right now. The first-ever Digibyte London Meetup is getting a lot of attention, which shows the strength of the DGB community. The event will take place in November, although it remains to be seen what one can expect from it exactly. It is good to see different currencies have their own meetups these days, as cryptocurrency isn’t just about Bitcoin and Ethereum. But you can’t pay for a ticket or a drink with #DGB ??? Ridiculousness — Jay C (@pastienot) October 14, 2018 On the price front, a lot of people are talking about Digibyte right now. With the altcoin entering the crypto market cap top 30 again, a very interesting situation is created. Irfan Hasnani is confident the altcoin will rise to spot #27 before the day is over, although it seems rather unlikely something like that will happen anytime soon. At the same time, the coins in front of DGB are not showing much momentum at this time. #DGB pic.twitter.com/EKTYnLObEF — Irfan Hasnani (@Irfan_Hasnani) October 14, 2018 There is also the firm belief Digibyte will effectively change the payments landscape for small businesses moving forward. While it is certainly interesting to see how altcoins can make micropayments happen well before Bitcoin can do so, none of the altcoins have the same market traction or “brand power” that Bitcoin has either. Eventually every small business in the world will accept #DGB for micro payments, now that my friend is bigger news than signing 1 big payment partnership. Power to the people. — DigiByte Awareness Team (@DGBAT_Official) October 14, 2018 Based on the current circumstances, it is safe to say things look pretty good for Digibyte. As is usually the case in cryptocurrency, problems arise when it comes to sustaining any sort of upward momentum for several hours, or even days. Disclaimer: This is not trading or investment advice.

Analysis: What Digibyte Could do to Ensure its Mainstream Adoption

Digibyte needs to avail a way in which buyers can directly purchase it without having to go through 3rd party websites such as Coinbase. Third party websites create challenges such as verification for buyers. For Digibyte to get mass adoption, it needs to make the buying process easy. The current process involves buying Bitcoin (BTC), then converting it to Digibyte (DGB). Moreover, the conversion charges a hefty 10% fee. These factors have discouraged people from purchasing DGB. Due to this, Digibyte has failed to get mass adoption and to be used for P2P or business payments. The DGB team needs to create a gateway to directly purchase the digital currency with either ACH of a credit card. (KE)

###DigiByte **What are cryptocurrencies?** Cryptocurrencies are peer to peer technology protocols which rely on the block-chain; a system of decentralized record keeping which allows people to exchange unmodifiable and indestructible information “coins,” globally in little to no time with little to no fees - this translates into the exchange of value as these coins cannot be counterfeit nor stolen. This concept was started by Satoshi Nakamoto (allegedly a pseudonym for a single man or organization) whom described and coded Bitcoin in 2009. **What is DigiByte?** DigiByte (DGB) is a cryptocurrency like Bitcoin. It is also a decentralized applications protocol in a similar fashion to Neo or Ethereum. DigiByte was founded and created by Jared Tate in 2014. DigiByte allows for fast (virtually instant) and low cost (virtually free) transactions. DigiByte is hard capped at 21 billion coins which will ever be mined, over a period of 21 years. DigiByte was never an ICO and was mined/created in the same way that Bitcoin or Litecoin initially were. DigiByte is the fastest UTXO PoW scalable block-chain in the world. We’ll cover what this really means down below. DigiByte has put forth and applied solutions to many of the problems that have plagued Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies in general - those being: * Maintaining decentralisation. * Maintaining low fees. * Maintaining fast transaction times. * Maintaining robust security + the immutable ledger. * And most importantly assuring massive scalability on chain. We will address these point by point in the subsequent sections. **The DigiByte Protocol** DigiByte maintains these properties through use of various technological innovations which we will briefly address below. ***Why so many coins? 21 Billion*** When initially conceived Bitcoin was the first of a kind! And came into the hands of a few! The beginnings of a coin such as Bitcoin were difficult, it had to go through a lot of initial growth pains which following coins did not have to face. It is for this reason among others why I believe Bitcoin was capped at 21 million; and why today it has thus secured a place as digital gold. When Bitcoin was first invented no one knew anything about cryptocurrencies, for the inventor to get them out to the public he would have to give them away. This is how the first Bitcoins were probably passed on, for free! But then as interest grew so did the community. For them to be able to build something and create something which could go on to have actual value, it would have to go through a steady growth phase. Therefore, the control of inflation through mining was extremely important. Also, why the cap for Bitcoin was probably set so low - to allow these coins to amass value without being destroyed by inflation (from mining) in the same way fiat is today! In my mind Satoshi Nakamoto knew what he was doing when setting it at 21 million BTC and must have known and even anticipated others would take his design and build on top of it. At DigiByte, we are that better design and capped at 21 billion. That's 1000 times larger than the supply of Bitcoin. Why though? Why is the cap on DigiByte so much higher than that of Bitcoin? Because DigiByte was conceived to be used not as a digital gold, nor as any sort of commodity, but as a real currency! Today on planet Earth, we are approximately 7.6 billion people. If each person should want or need to use and live off Bitcoin; then equally split at best each person could only own 0.00276315789 BTC. The market cap for all the money on the whole planet today is estimated to have recently passed 80 trillion dollars. That means that each whole unit of Bitcoin would be worth approximately $3,809,523.81! ***$3,809,523.81*** This is of course in an extreme case where everyone used Bitcoin for everything. But even in a more conservative scenario the fact remains that with such a low supply each unit of a Bitcoin would become absurdly expensive if not inaccessible to most. Imagine trying to buy anything under a dollar! Not only would using Bitcoin as an everyday currency be a logistical nightmare but it would be nigh impossible. For each Satoshi of a Bitcoin would be worth much, much, more than what is realistically manageable. This is where DigiByte comes in and where it shines. DigiByte aims to be used world-wide as an international currency! Not to be hoarded in the same way Bitcoin is. If we were to do some of the same calculations with DigiByte we'd find that the numbers are a lot more reasonable. At 7.6 billion people, each person could own 2.76315789474 DGB. Each whole unit of DGB would be worth approximately $3,809.52. ***$3,809.52*** This is much more manageable and remember in an extreme case where everyone used DigiByte for everything! I don't expect this to happen anytime soon, but with the supply of DigiByte it would allow us to live and transact in a much more realistic and fluid fashion. Without having to divide lar...

This is Jim, 4 year DGB holder and DGB Ambassador. Some updates to this great Reddit Community.

1) I been personally talking to Robinhood and I appreciate all you guys sharing your stories about adding DGB. I helped get DGB on about 40 exchanges in the last 3 months including 2 of the top 3 in the world, Okex and Upbit, but Robinhood is the big one that can explode DGB price overnight. 2) I will be visiting one of the top institutions in the world with Jared and another team member. Been in talks with them for awhile, and we will announce the news that comes out of that when ready. 3) I am on Telegram under "Discovernow Digibyte", but the best way to contact me is through: Jim@digibyte.io email. I was getting over 100+ PM a day, and 90% of them were "when moon" talk, not productive. 4) I am a volunteer in DGB. We all are, none of us are getting paid, and we spent thousands of dollars and our free time doing this on our own. I sold my business and retired before I entered DGB to be a stay at home dad which is a full time job within itself. Every single day, my wife is pushing me to be passive and step away and just focus on our kids, but I did promise Jared when I met him 4 years ago that I will help him achieve DGB Long Term Mission.) 5) Maybe we can end this Binance thing here. Hire an investigator and do a background check on them. My lovely wife has been investigating fraud for 20 years, so I know what I am talking about. 6) Your going to see some big media come out on DGB in 2018, I am talking to some of them personally. As always, will announce when ready. 7) DGB should be a $1 coin+. 2017, it went up 27,000% so it was not a bad year, but we are going to explode this in 2018. Don't look at daily charts, look at December 31st, 2018 and we will celebrate. 8) We have an awesome community, the best of the best. Jared is a great leader, a good friend, and somebody who I really respect. Remember, we are all volunteer's, we don't have to be here. 9) When I email companies, my spelling and grammar is excellent, but if you guys like you can correct spelling/grammar anything here or my 9 year old daughter can:-) 10) Keep having fun, enjoy life, we are all in this together as 1 TEAM. Anyways, if you need to reach me you can at jim@digibyte.io Thanks to this great Reddit community!...
