KB Topic Altcoin

altcoin may mean different things to different people. For most, Bitcoin is the coin and everything else is an alternative coin, or altcoin.

Most altcoins have low, if any, volume in US Dollar or Euro exchanges and are dependent on Bitcoin price. When altcoins break through the initial barrier and begin to be traded directly for fiat money, they immediately gain attention and often great valuation. For example, Ethereum was launched at U$ 0.35 (35 cents) per ETH. Today ETH is worth over U$ 100 and has hundreds of thousands of dollars average daily volume.

altcoins are considered high risk investments and usually attract aggressive investors looking for high yields at high risk. Searching for the next Ethereum or the next EOS is every altcoin investor's dream.

Why is the BTC U$ dollar value stable while altcoins soar
For traders used to traditional FIAT currency markets, the exchange rates between cryptos and U$ and Euro can seem a bit daunting. And with good reason. There are currently thousands of cryptocurrencies, each of them having a 100% free floating exchange rate against any other crypto. Which means there isn't a fixed reference like there would be with major FIAT currencies like Euros and US Dollars. For decades, we've been used to comparing currencies to the US Dollar. And we do it unconsciously, becaus...

Bitcoin being dumped post-BTG-checkpoint. Altcoins soar as expected.
The self-fulfilling and fully predictable prophecy has just been realized: BTC is getting dumped like there is no tomorrow - in favor of most altcoins (except KICK?).

Best Bitcoin Trading Bots in 2018 - Automated Trading Guide | CaptainAltcoin
Cryptocurrency trading isn't easy. However, there are many people who have honed the art of trading bitcoins and altcoins on a daily basis. Trading bots are used by many cryptocurrency traders to execute trades faster and more efficiently, and sometimes even in their sleep. They are called bots because the programs execute trades like humans do. However, they do it autonomously and can operate continuously without having to rest. Trading bots is a technique that uses pre-programmed software that analyzes market actions, such as volume, orders, price, and time, and they are rather common in the bitcoin world, because very few traders have time to stare at the charts all day. Bots or program trading is used within many global stock exchanges. Most people trade bitcoin as a way to generate passive income while working their regular day jobs, and bitcoin trading bots are said to establish more efficient trading. Bitcoin trading bots can be utilized on many well-known cryptocurrency exchanges today.
