Buying altcoins will only take four easy steps:
What are altcoins?
Altcoins, huh? It’s actually not that complicated: with altcoins we simply mean any other coin than bitcoin (BTC). And there are quite a few! At the moment there’s an estimated amount of 3,000 altcoins, a number that keeps increasing every day.
How to decide which altcoin to buy
Which altcoin you buy depends on your research and your preferences. You can ask the following questions: What problem does the coin aim to solve? Are there many developers working on the project? Does the website look reliable?
Take ether for example. The ether network Ethereum offers a platform for blockchain apps. It’s a completely different cryptocurrency than bitcoin, because it has a different function.
When to buy altcoins? Tip: during altcoin season
Sometimes the altcoin market is more like a fruit machine in the casino. Once in while you hit the jackpot! This period is often referred to as the ‘altcoin season’. Traders buy massive amounts of altcoins, creating great surges in the price.
This happened in 2017, when the whole crypto market was booming. But also in April-May of 2019, when altcoins were going to the moon in a short period of time.
In short, keep a close eye on the altcoin prices. You can do this very easily with the BLOX app, where you have an overview of all your coins and their price developments.
You can also check out crypto Twitter. Many crypto traders and investors express their opinion there on a daily basis. If you have trouble determining your own strategy, you can always adopt one of theirs. You can use their vision as inspiration, but don't blindly copy every trade someone else makes. No one can predict the future!
That’s why we also advise you not to invest more than you are willing to lose. So don’t put all your savings into altcoins, but rather invest an amount that’s left at the end of the month. This is not financial advice or investment advice, but a disclaimer to make sure you use your head, and don’t let emotions get the best of you!
Watch out for pump and dumps
Finally, we'd like to warn you. In the crypto world there is a phenomenon called ‘pump and dump’. That’s when a group of investors agrees (in private) to buy a certain altcoin. The price of that currency then rises enormously in a short period of time. The investors sell their coins and not much later the exchange rate drops back again.
