Some important rules

  • Always buy low and sell high. It's that simple, I'll repeat it once more: always buy low and sell high!
  • Buy low, means at 50% or less from the previous high (top). Even when you don't expect a coin will go lower, it does.... Just be patient. Buy low!
  • Never FOMO! When the price rallies up, do not enter! Wait till the price goes down again. Watch this Youtube movie about investor pyschology FOMO and FUD and loss aversion are very serious parts of investing that can have consequences for all.
  • Proven resistance will act as first level of support
  • The goal is to get more Bitcoins (not to get more USD)

Warning: Stay away from mining schemes. Most of them, to name a view: Genesis-Mining | bicointalk | is it profitable to mine with Genesis Mining?, Hashflare, Hashing24, etc seem to be based on a ponzi scheme. Youtubers are often very enthousiastic about them, but that is because they get lots of reward because of the affilication links they provide. How much can you make with cloud mining?

There are perhaps a view that may work, like: Hydrominer (see list below), Nicehash (review), Slushpool (review) or Pool Bitcoin (review), but do your due diligence thoroughly before going in!

Bitcoin is very dependend on the bitcoin difficulty. The more miners the higher the difficulty, the more difficult it gets to find a block. More effort, less reward. The difficulty expectation can be looked up at cryptothis.
