Earlier this year bitcoin was rallying really hard, gaining more than 200% between April and June 26, when it reached almost $14,000. Since then, bitcoin’s volatility significantly decreased: since August 15-27 world’s largest cryptocurrency has been trading between $9,600-10,900, making long-term investors feeling not very positive.
According to figures provided by Blockforce Capital and Digital Asset Data, Bitcoin’s 30-day volatility fell to a reading of 64 on Sunday, August 25, its lowest since June 25.
This chart shows a more than 50% drop from the reading’s recent peak of 131% reached on July 19:

Data on monthly range, measure that shows the difference between bitcoin’s high price and low price every month also shows that bitcoin doing not that great recently. According to Blockforce Capital and Digital Asset Data, this measure recently fell to its lowest since March.
As data above shows, it’s not a such positive situation for bitcoin investors. Considering such stagnation, buying bitcoin and waiting for the price to rise could be not the most effective way to invest in crypto.
Tired of BTC Stagnation? Try Leveraged Trading on Bexplus
Bexplus is an advanced cryptocurrency margin trading platform offering 100x leverage. The core feature of margin trading is an ability of gaining profits not only when bitcoin price rises, but also when it goes down by opening short (buy) and long (sell) positions.
Even with slightest activity on the market, investors still can trade and gain profits, let’s explain it by this simple example:
As an example, say you want to buy 1 BTC at a price of $10,000. To open such a trade on a fiat-to-crypto exchange you would need to pay $10,000. If the Bitcoin Price goes up by 1%, so 1 BTC now worth $10,100. If you choose to then sell them to secure your profit, you’d have made $100 from your original $10,000 investment.
Now let’s compare that to 100x leverage on Bexplus. Here you would only have to pay 1% open the same trade, which means $100 (0.01 BTC) to open a 1 BTC position. If Bitcoin’s price rises by 1%, you will still have made the same profit of $100, but at a considerably reduced cost.
Before you start to trade with leverage, it’s also a good idea to get some practice. Especially for new users Bexplus team designed free trading simulator: as soon as you register on the platform you get 10 BTC for your simulator account.
100x leverage allows investors to open positions of significantly greater amount with relatively small investments. 100x leverage is still quite a rare feature on most of the exchanges.
Besides bitcoin, of course, you also can trade altcoins: ETH, LTC, XRP, EOS are available for trading now on Bexplus.

NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.
NFTs are already being actively traded in markets globally. For…

Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?
2020 has been an incredible year for crypto as investors have generated windfall profits and crypto projects have seen their businesses gain the spotlight they’ve been looking for. While Bitcoin has received most of the attention after major institutional investors announced they were accumulating the increasingly scarce asset, many altcoins have also seen their fair share of glory. When looking at all the big winners of the past year, the first project that probably comes to mind is Chainlink, having appreciated by more than 550% YTD and now valued at over $4.5 billion. But, the actual biggest winner of the year is HEX with a YTD return of over 5,000%.
I mention both of the above projects as they have each taken slightly different paths to achieve greatness. Chainlink has devoted resources toward building a fundamentally sound business with many strategic partnerships while HEX has spent vast sums of money on marketing and promotion. Both approaches are valid, but one thing is certain, it is absolutely imperative for crypto projects to let the crypto community know what makes them special. Of course, one of the reasons that makes crypto so valuable is the powerful blockchain technology that most projects are utilizing.
Cryptocurrency vs. Blockchain Technology
