Cryptocurrency Traders Club

Poll Results: How do you feel about crypto currencies in general (not any specific coin)?

 
  • 31% (20)
    This is the future of financial transactions and will replace current systems in 5-10 years!
  • 35% (23)
    It's an evolutionary step, but without regulation and standardization will likely be replaced eventually.
  • 20% (13)
    It's likely to go strong for a few years, but long-term will simply be viewed as a fad.
  • 12% (8)
    It's a ridiculous ponzi-scheme, and it could all collapse entirely any second now!

Rather than clot up the main crypto club thread with trading advice, pump-n-dump predictions, etc... I thought it might be nice to have a thread that's just for us traders.

There isn't really a requirement for membership other than the fact that you're a trader. Obviously, anyone is welcome in the thread - but to become a member you must post a trade-pair that made profit. This is not a club for those that simply dump all their coins at whatever the current price is into BTC/LTC/FIAT and never buy back again. Although not necessary, if you have screenshots of the trade pair that would be great!

Here's my example (note this is an arbitrage example not a trade over time - but either is fine):
DOGE Bought @ Mintpal (183-187 sats):


DOGE Sold @ BTER (193 sats):


Note that this was neither a very large trade, nor a terribly profitable arbitrage (basically netted around 2%). Also these trades were only a few minutes apart, but the exchanges run on different time zones which is why they seem hours apart. wink.gif

This isn't a club for successful traders only - even if you want some sympathy over a particularly miserable trade - you're in the right place! I don't think anyone that's traded long (especially with the volatility of cryptos) hasn't had their share of panic-buys or panic-sells that wound up on the wrong side of momentum and cost a decent chunk of capital in the process. smile.gif

Short-term and long-term investors are both welcome however, so even if you think the whole cryptocurrency craze is a ponzi scheme or a temporary fad - if you're still participating currently... welcome aboard! In fact, it's the perfect place to get some feedback on either side - as true clarity is rarely achieved in a vacuum - and all of this stuff is unproven and constantly shifting at this point.

I'm on my phone so it'd b e a pain in the butt trying to put together any screenshots. However, just today I traded my PTS (wallet) -> BTC (bter) -> BTC (mintpal) -> BC (mintpal)...waiting for increase in value....THEN BC (mintpal) -> BTC (mintpal) -> NobleCoiin (wherever that's exchanged)

Not my typical day, but I'm learning...

LOL... screenshots are welcome but not necessary. That's quite a run there.

Yeah, I'm on the fence about BC myself... I bought early at 1800-2200 then sold at 3000. biggrin.gif Then bought back in at 850-1000 yesterday... so I could turn a nice profit even if I sold it now... but I'm tempted to hold for a longer term and see what it does during the week when it's pure PoS.

Not like it's a big gamble or anything... total investment on my part is less than .4BTC so even if it completely tanks I'll be fine. But if I sell at 3K or so again and it hits 10K by mid-week... I'd be very disappointed.

Yeah it's taken a little bit of a dive in the last hour. No biggy...........right? redface.gif

Will probably pull out of it this evening though.

Well, I'm in biggrin.gif

That LTC will replace the USD,

'cause the current economy, can something the crypto currency.

So lets start cracking some Nuts, and call in your DOGEs,

We gonna go to the Moon, something.

Well, considering the fact that if I sell now I'll basically make .01BTC or less - I'm holding no matter what. I increased my position a little @ 1250 and brought my average basis in BC up to around 1100... not including my mined coins. So I think it's worth just waiting and seeing what happens in the next week. Although if I needed that BTC somewhere else - I'd probably get out ~2000 or so just to call it a day. redface.gif

I'm still hoping there will be a small pump from it going PoS... but without mining it might just plummet to nothing just as easily.

LOL! Well, the way they're printing them... I've got a roll of paper in my WC right now that could replace USD as well. wink.gif

I salute your enthusiasm, and welcome... but I need a trade pair to add you. You don't have to provide amounts if you don't want... a simple "Traded NUT to LTC @ .00000010/NUT" or something will suffice.

I'm in, the first is where I removed the 7000 BlackCoin from my wallet:



The second is where I sold my 7000 BlackCoin at 1470, then turned around and bought them back at 1300:



This was just an hour or two ago on MintPal

If I had waited a little longer, I could've bought back at 1156, but I was hoping to catch another bounce up, but it never really came close to the 1449 I put them back at and now it kinda looks like it might be finished for a while. That's OK though, I walk away with a little and my original capital still in my pocket. I'm happy. thumb.gif
I've got a bunch of these BlackCoin over on CryptoRush also, but they were having serious issues this afternoon and had a lot of down time and I was afraid I was going to miss out on a good opportunity, so I took the 7000 out of my stash and put them onto Mintcoin to play with.

Nice... that's exactly what I've found... you made ~.011BTC profit (with no actual change in your BC capital) in less than 25 minutes... the same amount would require 24hrs mining @ 1Mh/s on clevermining.com... now which way is 'greener'? wink.gif
