investing_cryptocurrency_category_ice3xThe Investing Cryptocurrency category of our blog contains all our curated posts related to cryptocurrency investment. To be more specific, this category has content which focusses on using FIAT currency to invest in the cryptocurrency industry.

We call this type of investment “hodling”. (Acquiring bitcoin and keeping it for a longer term). Many family offices and private investors make a killing by diversification. Furthermore, they were the ones to invest a small percentage of their portfolio into cryptocurrency during the early days (2012-2014). These investors simply funded startups and projects in the cryptocurrency space and have since had many successes, but equally, there have also been some spectacular failures.

Investing directly into the actual asset is another route favoured by some investors. You will find all the benefits and pitfalls of this type of investment in the investing cryptocurrency category. Moreover, you will also come across some insightful articles on scams. Protect yourself by being aware.

Always do your own research when investing in cryptocurrency no matter how much you trust the source which introduced you.
