Bitcoin has been an unauthorized type of money in my country. So, I've never mined it. I don't worry about monthly electricity bills.

<Awesome post I must say. Crypto is moving with little sign of stopping throughout the past few days and weeks, with movements reaching a clear impasse, the aggregated cryptocurrency market has been following in Btcoin's lead and is struggling to garner any decisive momentum. One analyst is now noting that BTC has been holding above a key macro level throughout the past few months. i appreciate the honesty/ the most you tubers this days is only up to the moon/ funny part is that nobody is talking or taking in consideration of what's happening around us !!!!! /stock market, delta variant, inflation and so on; let alone of how bitcoin perform before in the same situation in the past. What's best to do now is to trade with pro treder Daniel as to stack up more even in this period.

Sometime when it comes to bag huge profit I may become less risk averse. By doing this i find myself dipping my toe into a very uncertain situation which leads to bad pension plan if this becomes my regular habit.

< I totally agree with what you are saying....The fact is, BTC remains the future of crypto and the questions traders ask themselves now are if this is the right time to invest? before jumping to a conclusion I think you should take a look at things first. for the past few days, the price of BTC has been fluctuating which means the market is currently unstable and you can't tell if it is going bearish or bullish. While others still continue to trade without the fear of making losses, others are being patient. it all depends on the pattern with which you trade and also the source of your signals. I would say trading has been going smoothly for me, I started with 5 BTC and I have accumulated over 14 BTC in just three weeks, with the trading strategy given to me by expert trader Carl Roberts. Say hello to Roberts today.

<Great stuff mate, always a fan! I love your analysis and understand why you follow them. I think we are entering a crab market Personally. We will still get our pumps and dumps but based purely on what the Fed are doing. That being said, as traders we can still make good money

As you can see we are already in may and I feel those who would allow the market dynamism to determine when to trade or not are either new in space in general or probably just naïve, the sphere have seen far worse times than this, enlightened traders continue to make good use of the dip and pump even acquiring more equities towards trading sessions, I'd say that more emphasis should be put into trading since it is way profitable than hodling. Tradlng went smooth for me as I was able to raise over 9.2 BTC when I started at 2 BTC in just few weeks implementing trades with signals and insights from Sean Whalen would advise y'all to trade your asset rather than hodl for a future you aren't sure about..You can reach Sean on ͲeIєɠɾαm
