This article will focus on the facts you must know as a cryptocurrency investor or a prospective one.

1. Expect anything

This is perhaps the first advice I’ll give to any crypto investor. Like any other market, the crypto market is unpredictable, thus you should expect upward and downward swings in prices.

Expect anything

Prepare your mind for unfavorable investment performances, so that when the price drops, you don’t become too emotional about it and act irrationally.

2. Research Extensively

As a crypto investor, perform a thorough research about the cryptocurrencies you’re investing in or the ones you’ve chosen to invest in to be armed with the right knowledge to make proper decisions, choices, and not to be caught unawares.

Be careful with mobile wallets

Of course, having our crypto mobile wallets saved in our phones is convenient but we should be more concerned about the security risks that come with carrying out trades or keeping assets on our mobile devices.

5. Use a unique account and password

It is advisable that you create a unique account just for trading with an added security feature of a two-factor authentication password when opening an account with your chosen crypto wallet.
