How Bitcoin Trading Works

Trading, buying, selling, investing. They all involve money. What’s the difference? We’ll tell you ?

What is trading and why should I do it?

By definition, trading currencies is the act of exchanging one for the other. When you trade USDZAR, for example. You’re exchanging your South African Rand for US Dollars.

More often than not, before actually becoming a professional trader, people ask themselves “why?”. You’ve probably asked yourself why you should trade and if it’s worth it. The next part is deciding what to trade. But we’ll get to that later.

Trading is literally analyzing charts, deciding when to buy or sell. Easy, right?! ?

The Benefits of Trading

So, why should you trade? Is it worth it? Yes, it’s definitely worth it! Here are a few reasons we believe you should trade if you don’t already:

  1. Extra income — Trading provides you with an extra income. You could consider it passive, depending on how you look at it.
  2. Profitability — Did you know, more than $2b is traded and exchanged every day? Trading can be very profitable when done right. It could pay you more than a full-time salary ?
  3. Accumulation of funds — let’s say you trade Bitcoin at ChainEX. You hold your positions and have a balance in your BTC wallet. As time has shown and proved, the value of Bitcoin increases. Now you have the same amount of Bitcoin you had before in your wallet, but worth more fiat currency (ZAR) than you initially deposited ?
Interesting… But, how does it work?

How does Trading ACTUALLY work?

It’s more simple than you realize… Wait for it… You buy or sell. ?

Okay, before you log in to your ChainEX account and start buying and selling, read on. It’s as simple as buying or selling. But it’s not.

What are you saying?!

Okay, enough beating around the bush. Trading Bitcoin or any currency for that matter requires a certain level of understanding that particular currency pair and its price action (how its price decreases, increases, and factors affecting that price).

You’ll need to learn a trading strategy in order to be profitable. There are a host of resources for you to learn and understand more about Bitcoin. We found one for you: CryptoCrowd. A free Bitcoin educational site that also offers a free Bitcoin trading course ?

What if trading isn’t for me?

I’m not sure I wanna trade…

Then just buy Bitcoin and watch it accumulate ?

Most people don’t have time to actively trade or the desire to. ChainEX allows you to buy Bitcoin and store them in your wallet ? Just leave them there and watch as your value accumulates. Consider it an investment :).
