Trading / Buy and Hold

If you’re not interested in actively trading as not to take any unnecessary losses, you could HODL! Buying and holding crypto assets for extended periods of time is common practice. In light of this, we have a blog post explaining this process and the benefits of it. One of the greatest benefits of HODLing is control. That is to say, you have more control over your exposure to the long-term investment. As a result, you’re able to manage your risk better, allowing you to measure your success along the way to your goal. This is an easy way to earn bitcoin.

TIP: Set a google alert for market news on a particular coin you are holding, and review your portfolio performance periodiaclly. You can schedule a digest via email of all your trading activity on Simply go to your account settings page.

Your strategy will greatly depend on the coin you decide to invest in. In other words, will you invest in a coin that may not be around in 3 years but is highly volatile? Or will you invest in a coin that has plans for decades to come but is more stable in price? The simplest way people start this strategy is to simply buy bitcoin. Many people have bought bitcoin and are waiting 5-10 years to sell it. In addition to this, the big market players are buying more and more in order to bring down the average purchase price. Thus, when the price goes back up, what coin will you have holdings in?

Mining Crypto

Cryptocurrency mining provides a good way for people to get into the crypto space without needing to trade. Central banks generate traditional fiat currency. With cryptocurrency, miners mine new crypto tokens on a blockchain network. By mining crypto, you are able to earn bitcoin without needing to purchase it. The only time you’ll have to spend money when mining, is when you’re initially buying your mining hardware.

You can’t stop things like Bitcoin. It will be everywhere and the world will have to readjust. World governments will have to readjust – John McAfee, Founder of McAfee
We have blog posts explaining how to mine Bitcoin, how to mine Dash, how to mine Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum and many more in detail. As well as this, We have a few posts with mining tips for several cryptocurrencies we have listed on our cryptocurrency exchange. Despite some people speculating cryptocurrency mining is dying, many miners are actively mining cryptocurrency all over the world.


It’s not hard to earn bitcoin these days. Mining cryptocurrencies on a normal PC will earn you some tokens if you join a good mining pool. Referral systems such as the iCE3X affiliate program allow you to simply share a link, netting you some commission for each user that uses your link to sign up. Just imagine. You’re at home, mining rig running in the background, you check your affiliate program and you have 100 referrals all actively trading. All while you sit on your piggy bank of bitcoin tokens and HODL until Lambo. Maybe it’s not so hard to get started with cryptocurrency then.

Will you be investing in crypto this year? After all, there are many altcoins on the market showing great potential to overshadow Bitcoin in the near future. Cryptocurrencies like Cardano and NEO are tokens that can be staked to earn interest. We have a blog post explaining how Cardano staking works, and why it’s a coin to keep your eye on this year. All things considered, let us know in the comments if you have any plans to HODL a crypto coin this year.
