  1. Now that you’re in the #cryptonation, it’s time to get your tickets to the big show. We go by simple rules here:
  • Buy Bitcoin now
  • Buy it at cost
  • HODL

Your ticket to the moon requires at least 1 BTC. After that, you can begin trading other alt coins at your own discretion.

  1. Many n00bs get caught up in FOMO (fear of missing out), and FUD (fear, uncertainty, doubt). While this is normal, grounding yourself in principles allows you to make rational trades rather than emotional trades. Take some time to understand Principle Based Trading:

  1. Now that you have the principles down, you need to set goals. Goal setting is THE best way to ensure that you never lose focus of why you’re here, and what you want to get out of it. Take some time to set some goals:

  1. Now that you have goals, understand that goals WILL not get get reached by themselves. You must discipline yourself daily to get to those goals. A lot of people here at the #cryptonation enjoy “cost averaging” as a way of incrementally increasing positions in certain coins. Cost averaging works well in traditional markets, but works extremely well in crypto, take a look:

Here’s how I’ve made SIGNIFICANT gains through cost averaging with our beloved Litecoin!:

  1. Now you’re on your way. You’ve hopefully began settling in. You’ve got several exchanges to work from and you understand the value of incremental investing over time with discipline and goals. Now, you may find yourself looking for greater challenges. No problem! Here’s a bit on some very powerful chart patterns if you want to do more weekly trading:

  1. Full transparency. I very much enjoy helping others. If you’d like to see a larger overview of what I’m generally working with, take a look at a video I did a couple months ago about my personal “active portfolio.” I hope it encourages you that you too, can earn over time!

https://youtu.be/1Fogu-HjpT4

  1. Now it’s time to jump into more details on trading. Here’s an off-the-cuff video I did when I was on vacation trying to help out my #cryptonation. It shows entry points on BTC, ETH, LTC and how I used moving averages to understand “momentum” in a market to get into a coin on an upward swing:

Hey guys, Happy new year and much healthm hapiness and success to all… and may we all go to the mooon!
Im a noob and I have a stupid question:
I saw the video of @peter talking about the 7 basic chart patterns to look out for. I was wondering what the “time frame” was on those charts and what do you usually look at? Daily, monthly, etc…
Is it different Times frames for different strategies?
Thanks

@peter, Newbie question, here. Planning to start putting some money into alt coins. When I accumulate 1BT in multiple altcoins should I move them all into my BTC wallet (so I can be buy the ticket to the moon LOL) or should I keep accumulating them in altcoins until I have at least 2BTC or more?

3 Likes

Ticket first. Secure that. Then begin the game of thrones with the other alts!

If you’d like, you can dca into a full btc.

No worries! Just stay in the game!

Binance is also not taking new people at this time.

You could try Kraken, Cryptopia, or poloniex. I’ve heard poloniex has recently changed their user agreement in ways that is unfavorable to the user, I have not confirmed that yet myself though. Also, do be careful when using any Crypto exchange, I personally have not had any troubles but many have and will continue to so be vigilant and safe out there. For when they do take on new users Binance is probably my current favorite. There is also the exchange that is tied in with KuCoin, but I do not know all that much about it.

Just watched Day 17 and I have a question. Learning about the open/ close of candles but why does it show the tail higher then the close? Does that mean that the price went really high then came down before the close? Thank you I really am learning a lot and actually enjoying the videos.

It shows what the price ended at (at the end of the session length).
