How to Turn the Upcoming Crypto Bull Run to Your Advantage

Bull runs are back, and as the crypto market sees strong recovery with each passing month — new ones are likely to keep coming in the foreseeable future. With that in mind, there is a lot of profit to be made for those who know how to exploit the current situation. Particularly when it comes to exploiting the future that analysts are almost sure is about to arrive.

It is no secret that many had lost massive amounts of money due to the 2018 crypto winter when bears were roaming the crypto space, and prices were constantly in the red. Bitcoin itself dropped from $20,000 to $3,100 within a single year.

Now, however, BTC is back on track, climbing from $3,200 to its current $8,500. In fact, the largest coin is likely to keep going up, with occasional minor corrections. A similar situation was seen back in 2017, although there are quite a few differences this time. For example, most experienced investors do not trust altcoins and ICOs as much as they used to. These trends were proven to be way too risky, and the chances are that investors will risk losing much more than they might gain.

With that in mind, one of the biggest questions that traders are asking right now is whether or not it is possible to make major profits in the crypto market as it is right now?

Bitcoin Futures: The right way to go?

Many experts believe that the answer is yes and that major profits still await in the future. Particularly when it comes to Bitcoin futures trading. For those who might not know, Bitcoin futures trading is a derivative product, where traders agree to buy or sell BTC at a certain price and at a certain time in the future. It is also possible to add leverage, which might increase the profits multiple time if your predictions end up being correct.

The idea is quite simple — traders would invest small amounts of BTC as the margin to hold the Bitcoin futures contract. If you were to invest 1 BTC with a 100x leverage, the contract’s true value would be 100 BTC. Naturally, with greater leverage also come greater risks, and your chances to make a mistake increase.

Then, there is bidirectional trading, which is another advantage that comes with trading Bitcoin futures. Right now, it appears that the future of trading will be quite bullish. However, the market is also still quite unpredictable, with many twists and turns along the way. Bitcoin goes up and down quite a lot, and in the past two weeks alone, the coin was above $8,000, only to drop to $7,300, then climb to $7,900, proceed to $8.800, and right now, it has dropped to $8,500.

With behavior like that, it is important for traders to have the ability to buy long and sell short, which lets them adapt to the market in real time.

Bitcoin futures trading has grown to be quite popular as a result, and numerous platforms out there are adding Bitcoin futures contracts to meet demand. The risks are quite high, but so are the profits, and advanced traders appear to be quite optimistic regarding the future of crypto. Of course, the leverage can vary from one exchange to another, and some may provide 100x, while others only 10x.

Bexplus is one such platform, where traders can use 100x leverage, and not only for BTC but for any of the offered crypto products. The platform also offers additional benefits, such as the chance to win additional presents in “Lucky May,” a free BTC bonus for those who deposit BTC in their accounts, up to 50% invitation referral reward, and more.

When one thinks about the social media landscape, the companies that first come to mind are most likely Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Snapchat.  These platforms are a great way to stay connected with friends, families, and colleagues, especially when geographic distance is a factor.  But, in addition to just chatting about life in general and sharing pictures, social media can be used to bridge the information gap that exists within the investment community.

Over the last decade, many trading offices have been established in large cities all over the world which allow solo traders and investors to pay a monthly fee in exchange for a workspace.  The real benefit to trading in these offices is to participate in the free flow of trading ideas and information.  Proprietary trading is one of the most challenging careers to be successful at and the exchange of ideas is almost required in order to succeed.  Traders at hedge funds and investment banks work in teams so why shouldn’t remote traders?

While these trading offices are a great way to help bridge the information gap, Aluna.Social may provide an even better way, especially as it relates to cryptocurrency trading.

Mission Statement

Aluna.Social, founded by Alvin Lee and Henrique Matias, is a multi-exchange social trading terminal for crypto traders and investors.  The goal of the platform is to help newcomers shorten their learning curve,…

While Bitcoin (BTC) continues to hover around the magical 10,000 price level, altcoins continue to fight an uphill battle.  Simply put, hopes of a future bull run continue to diminish as Bitcoin maintains its dominance.  One school of thought is that a few altcoins will survive and flourish, but which ones are anyone’s guess.  That being said, it’s hard to go wrong picking against the top coins like Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Litecoin (LTC), and EOS.  These projects have managed to find a foothold in the market and have a better chance than most of staying there.  While traders wait for their positions to increase in value, one opportunity that may be worth looking at is initiating a collateralized debt position.

What is a Cryptocurrency CDP?

In traditional terms, a CDP is essentially putting up collateral in order to receive a loan against the deposited amount.  There are several examples of this in our day to day lives.  Auto title loans from large companies like TitleMax are extremely popular with consumers.  Consumers are essentially able to use their car as collateral in exchange for a cash payment which can then be used for whatever needs the consumer has.  The consumer can continue using their car as long as debt payments are made.

The same concept applies to cryptocurrency CDPs.  Consumers are able to put up crypto tokens, such as…
