A cryptocurrency is a digital asset that is designed as a medium of exchange. It uses cryptography to secure transactions and control the formation of additional currency units. Cryptocurrencies are digital currencies, a subset of alternative currencies. The most popular cryptocurrency is Bitcoin, and since its invention, the various new cryptocurrencies have often been referred to as Altcoins, short for Bitcoin alternative.
Bitcoin was developed as a peer-to-peer system for online payments without the need for a trustworthy central authority. Since its invention in 2008, Bitcoin has grown into a currency, technology, investment vehicle, and community of users. It is actually believed to be the first cryptocurrency, although, as mentioned, similar systems already existed. Because the Bitcoin system works without a single administrator (like PayPal) or a central repository, the US Treasury Department has categorized Bitcoin as a decentralized virtual currency. In fact, the first decentralized digital currency would be a more correct designation than the first cryptocurrency.
Since all transactions are digital and take place directly between users and without intermediaries, it is important to ensure that users do not spend more bitcoins than they own. Therefore, all transactions are verified by network nodes and recorded in a publicly distributed ledger, the so-called blockchain.
While everyone has heard of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, few have extensive knowledge of how they work. In the remainder of this article, we’ll share the main pros and cons to consider before taking advantage of the power of Bitcoin.
Pros and Cons of Using Bitcoin
Because of the relatively novel nature of Bitcoin, its price can rise or fall unpredictably within a short period of time, and it can sometimes be more illiquid than other types of currencies. This means that keeping your savings in bitcoins is a risky decision and not recommended. Bitcoin is considered a high risk asset and it is not advisable to keep money in bitcoins that you cannot afford to lose. On the other hand, risk-takers can achieve considerable returns in a short time due to the high volatility. A lack of awareness and understanding of Bitcoin means that it is relatively rarely used as a billing method by companies. With more and more companies and individuals using Bitcoin, its volatility and liquidity risk should calm down.
Another thing to consider before purchasing bitcoins is the security of your digital wallet. Like your real wallet, your Bitcoin wallet must be secure. Since Bitcoin makes it quick and easy to transfer money to anywhere in the world, security concerns are even greater. Remember, it is your responsibility to establish good safety practices. Overall, Bitcoin is considered a secure and transparent system due to its cryptographic security. As a bonus, Bitcoin users can enjoy significantly lower transaction fees than with credit cards or PayPal.
Bitcoin has successfully positioned itself as another business opportunity for forex and other traders. As mentioned earlier, buying and selling bitcoins is an easy, quick, and inexpensive process. Before setting up your Bitcoin account, you should familiarize yourself with the status of Bitcoin in your country, as well as any other applicable legal regulations and requirements. The legal status of Bitcoin varies considerably from country to country and in many cases is still undefined or in flux. In 2013, the G7 Financial Action Task Force issued a statement announcing that Bitcoin and other internet-based payment services pose an increased risk of terrorist financing and money laundering. Meanwhile, that same year Germany classified Bitcoin as a legally binding financial instrument, which is essentially a unit of account.

Did you ever get help with this? I find it surprising there is very little discussion or help with Crypto strategies.
I remember struggling with setting instrument Pip/Tick size, step size and value when I first started using SQX. There’s hardly any info on it that I could find in the documentation.
Whilst its valid saying you have to find the values yourself, that wasn’t the issue for me. It was trying to work out how SQX required the inputs to be set and how it calculated the correct spreads etc.
For something that has such a huge impact on the results it should be defined in adequate detail. In fact a small note could be put in the instrument setting window itself.August 31, 2021 at 1:30 pm #125909KaslerParticipant
