Cryptocurrency is simply an investment platform. Is a form of payment that can be exchanged online for goods and services. It is a market where various set of coin are been traded. Cryptocurrency is a type of currency which uses digital files as money.


Considering the existing period that should help you in this regard that you should look into which players have dominated the market for a long time. Take an example of Bitcoin, Ethereum and Litecoin. These coins have been around longer than most options you will find on the market, and they thus have high market caps and volume. They are therefore less risky as compared to new entrants. There are many advantages and disadvantages as to investing in crypto-currencies.
Cryptocurrencies use 'decentralized control', which means that they aren't controlled by one person or government. Example of Cryptocurrency that one can invest into includes; Ethereum, Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ripple e.t.c


Quickly I will point out two (2) major reason why some people has failed or refuses to invest into cryptocurrency;

Fear of been defrauded
There is nothing to fear as long as you investage on the platform and the time of coin you are buying as Cryptocurrencies is built using blockchain technology. Blockchain describes the way transactions are recorded into "blocks" and time stamped. It's a fairly complex, technical process, but the result is a digital ledger of cryptocurrency transactions that's hard for hackers to tamper with.
In addition, transactions require a two-factor authentication process. For instance, you might be asked to enter a username and password to start a transaction. Then, you might have to enter an authentication code that's sent via text to your personal cell phone.

Fear to take risk
So many people have failed to invest because of the fear of losing their money not knowing that life is all about risk taking. Why keep all your money why it’s does not yield any interest in 21st century where there are lot of investment platform you can keep your money and you be rest assured that its will grow after you been able to understand the market.
Investments are always risky, but some experts say cryptocurrency is one of the riskier investment choices out there, according to Consumer Reports. However, digital currencies are also some of the hottest commodities.

Things to do or know before investing into cryptocurrency;

Learn about the market before investing
This is a research stage, before you invest one dollar or Naira, it is best to learn about cryptocurrency exchanges. These platforms provide the means to buy and sell digital currencies, but there are 500 exchanges to choose from, according to Do your research, read reviews and talk with more experienced investors before moving forward.

Understanding the storage system
If you buy cryptocurrency, you have tostore it. You can store it on an exchange or in a digital wallet. While there are many different kinds of wallets, each has its own benefits, technical requirements and security. As with exchanges, you should investigate your storage choices before investing.

Market fluctuation


The cryptocurrency market is unsteady, unstable, fluctuating e.c.t , so be prepared for ups and downs. You'll see dramatic swings in prices. If your investment portfolio or mental well being can't handle that, cryptocurrency might not be a wise choice for you.
Cryptocurrency is all the rage right now, but remember, it's still in its infancy. Investing in something that's new comes with challenges, so be prepared. If you plan to participate, do your research and invest conservatively to start.

Broaden your investments horizon
When we talk about investment as a whole one must know that it is always best to spread, distribute the money into different sector. As I do hear my old man say that “it is not one road that give access to the market”, this is because if one probably did not yard much or at all there is a possibility of the other yielding well. Diversification is a key to any good investment strategy, and it holds true when you're investing in cryptocurrency too. Don't put all of your money in Bitcoin, for example, just because that's the name you know. There are thousands of options, and it's best to spread your investment around to several currencies.
