A Time to Buy & A Time to Sell: Fearless Investing in Crypto
By: Jacob Machine
When making investments in global markets, there always comes a time to buy and a time to sell. When it comes to cryptocurrencies, this is no different than making investments into any other market on the world stage. Values go up and values go down, and this is just the game we choose to play as investors. Knowledge is power here, and the more you know, the more you have the potential to grow or decline with the times. Playing it safe by merely only working for each dollar you generate will oftentimes not in itself create true wealth. This can also lead to missed opportunities as the market responds and changes to the daily economic occurrences all around us. You must be willing to take risks and be ready with an open mind towards the world of today, not merely just seeking new opportunities for work, but also consistently seeking information on new opportunities to invest. The key here is becoming fearless in your investment, and to become willing to make intelligently informed decisions as to how you move your money around global markets.
When looking at cryptocurrency today, many are making the argument that the good days are over and the chance for economic growth here is in the past. As a prospective investor myself, I am not so sure that is the case today even despite the current news of the moment. Looking through the news of now, you may choose to believe that a crash is about to happen. Headlines across the globe have turned on cryptocurrencies as China itself has made the decision to shut down 90% of its Bitcoin. mining. This is a crackdown on the financial freedom of the people within China by the Chinese Communist Party. The CCP is mandating that its banks restrict financial services to anyone trying to make an exchange through crypto in efforts to support its own future of a digital yuan. China was formerly an early adopter of Bitcoin., but as the people empower themselves on the world stage through the currencies, China has switched its viewpoint to see it as a threat to the CCP’s power structure. While the digital yuan is a centralized, surveilled currency, most of the cryptocurrencies remain free and open on the world stage. This financial freedom is a threat to anyone seeking financial control over their people. The key to understanding here is that, despite China’s own backing out for the moment, this still leaves most of the entirety of the rest of the world stage open with the freedom to still make investment in whatever cryptocurrency that they choose. This decision by China may end up resulting in China being left behind in the marketplace, despite the momentary fears it produces for investors.
Headlines of today continue to read of fear mongering from everything from ‘Dogecoin Falls 70% Since Musk on SNL’ to ‘Bitcoin turns Negative for Year’ experience the ‘Death Cross’. I’ve heard the same rhetoric and phrases being used about the stock market entirely since the ‘crash’ in 2008. But looking at the time since 2008, what else happened? Especially during the times of the Trump presidency, the economy experienced a boom unlike anything ever seen before created by production, confidence and investment. Of course, there will always be fear mongering and there will always be the potential for crashes, but with every crash there also comes again a time to rise. Successful investors with fearless intuition know this. There is no patience for impatience here, and each investor must pay attention to the markets to know when the best times to buy and the best times to sell are.
When the Democratic media and China begin fear mongering, it is a good time for free market capitalists to step up and pay close attention to what is happening on the world stage. The mere idea of them spouting these fears should send off a signal that opportunity is on the horizon.
Remember too, that countries and people around the world are accepting cryptocurrencies into their culture. Most recently, El Salvador has accepted Bitcoin as legal tender. Coinbase, the cryptocurrency exchange, has itself just been accepted onto the stock market exchanges as a company itself. The NRCC, or National Republican Congressional Committee recently declared that it will be directly accepting cryptocurrencies through Bitpay exchanges. The Netherlands, Estonia, Denmark, South Korea, Slovenia and Singapore all are countries that are integrating Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies into their everyday culture with rapid growth expected. Across the United States and Canada, Bitcoin ATMs can be found and people across the nations are making investments into the virtual currency landscape. Japan was the first country to accept Bitcoin as legal tender and has become a leader in what a nation can look like when adopting crypto into everyday modern culture successfully. All exchanges are being recognized and respected by governments in these areas.
Remember, cryptocurrency is all about financial freedom and independence from centralized banks. Not every cryptocurrency will survive and thrive, but every cryptocurrency still has massive potential for growth here depending on the confidence and investments into which for the days to come ahead. Recently up to and as of today, cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Dogecoin have fallen from previous highs earlier this year. As of the writing of this article, Bitcoin is about 34,000 dollars in value. At its highest point this year, Bitcoin was at nearly 64,000 dollars back in April. This may seem like a sharp decline, but it is important to keep in mind that only a few months before that time it was valued around the 20,000 mark. These are individual days in the marketplace, and no decline decides the future potential. Like every other market, prices go up and prices go down. There is a time to sell and a time to buy. Looking at the world stage as a fearless investor, maybe, with all this news of today, it is just the right time to make an investment.
In the words of Ziad K. Abdelnour, “the harder your money works for you, the less you’ll have to work for money.” If the problem here is modern media fear mongering people into being afraid to invest in cryptocurrencies, the solution is for investors who believe in its potential to continue learning and investing, especially as prices fall and new opportunities arise. Fearless investing and having the willpower to jump in and take a risk is the way entrepreneurs become wealth generators in the modern world. Here’s to self-education and self-empowerment with fearlessness in investment as a free market capitalist in the world economy. Cheers to all.
