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.

Cryptocurrency Collateralized Debt Positions Are Growing in Popularity

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…

I’m sure all of us remember the cryptocurrency glory days of 2017 and early 2018.  It was one of the biggest bull runs in history and created incredibly wealth for quite a few early entrants.  Unfortunately, for most of us, those gains have most likely been wiped out during the altcoin apocalypse.  The truth is that traders probably thought a bit too highly of their trading abilities when the reality was that anyone could have thrown a dart at a board and ended up making money.

As markets mature (and the crypto market is definitely maturing) it becomes more and more difficult to generate alpha.  In that regard, it’s similar to traditional financial markets.  I can remember trading during my high school days.  It was the late 90s and right in the middle of the dot.com boom.  Eventually, however, the euphoria fades away and reality hits hard.  Now, it’s become rather difficult to actually trade profitably which has given way to the rise of hedge funds.

Hedge funds are investment funds that pool capital from accredited and/or institutional investors and invest in a variety of assets, often with extremely complex portfolio-construction and risk management techniques.  The professionals employed by hedge funds are the best of the best and have spent years honing their craft.  That is why they’re able to make the millions of dollars that they normally…

There has been a lot of renewed enthusiasm in the cryptocurrency market thanks mainly to Bitcoin’s strong move about 10,000.  Although Bitcoin continues to show its dominance, the altcoin market has yet to benefit from that rally.  A few of the largest altcoins remain popular but the rest of the market continues to lag behind.  In 2018, there was a lot of talk regarding a possible altcoin apocalypse where only the strong would survive.  That prediction appears to be playing out as expected.  Going forward, only the best projects that have a real world need will survive.  Crypto traders will have to spend a lot of their time doing proper research in order to find the best opportunities, just like in all financial markets.  One promising project that appears to have the makings of a future winner is KaratGold Coin.
