Since last few years BITCOIN And CryptoCurrency Trading is making a lot of noise. Investors especially in the western countries have shown a lot of Interest in BITCOIN And CryptoCurrency Trading.

What is BITCOIN?

Bitcoin is a new currency that was created in 2009 by an unknown person using the alias Satoshi Nakamoto. Transactions are made with no middle men – meaning, no banks! There are no transaction fees and no need to give your real name. More merchants are beginning to accept them: You can buy webhosting services, pizza or even manicures.

Why Bitcoins?

Bitcoins can be used to buy merchandise anonymously. In addition, international payments are easy and cheap because bitcoins are not tied to any country or subject to regulation. Small businesses may like them because there are no credit card fees. Some people just buy bitcoins as an investment, hoping that they’ll go up in value.

Acquiring Bitcoins

Buy on an Exchange: Several marketplaces called “bitcoin exchanges” allow people to buy or sell bitcoins using different currencies. Mt. Gox is the largest bitcoin exchange.

Can You Trade BITCOIN in India?

Yes you can. There are brokers who allow you to trade BITCOIN and CryptoCurrency in India but its not recommended to trade.

I will tell you why.

Reason 1 not to trade BITCOIN:

Look at BITCOIN price in Rupees as on 15-Nov-2017 time 12.25 pm India Time:



In other words 1 BITCOIN equals Rs. 4 lakh, 49 thousand, 334.96 as of on 15-Nov-2017 time 12.25 pm India Time. Will you risk that much money to buy just 1 BITCOIN? At least I will NEVER.

BITCOIN price in USD as on 15-Nov-2017 time 12.25 pm India Time:



Reason 2 not to trade BITCOIN:

As of today this is what I see in most BITCOIN trading websites:

₹ 4,86,800.00 BUY
₹ 4,84,000.00 SELL

If you buy and decide to sell straight away you are set to lose ₹ 2800 + brokerage (though brokerage is low and there is no tax as BITCOIN is not controlled by governments).

Reason 3 not to trade BITCOIN:

Most people do not understand BITCOIN, so it is better not to invest in a business that you do not understand. Moreover governments all over the world are against it. Read this:

Big Governments Will Crush Bitcoin, But Won’t Kill It

Big Governments Are Crushing Cryptocurrencies

So you don’t know what LAW will KILL BITCOIN & CryptoCurrency Trading. The day governments kills it all your investments become ZERO on BITCOIN or CryptoCurrency.

Reason 4 not to trade BITCOIN:

Another point : Let us say someone invested $7000 in BITCOIN and made $14000 in 3 months.

In percentage terms that is 100% return in 3 months but in real world that’s just $7000 made with too much risk. BITCOIN can go up and down 10% in one day. 🙁 Read this:

Bitcoin makes dramatic comeback after CRASHING over weekend

Bitcoin prices plummeted by 29 percent from a record high $7,882 last Wednesday, dropping to as low as $5,605 on Monday

Bitcoin Crashes and Then Surges

I will never invest in anything that can crash as much as 29% in a day at such a high price.

BITCOIN or any other speculative product is great only if I invest 15k and make at least quarter/half a million in 10-15 years – something that can change my life. This only good stocks can do LEGALLY – BITCOIN & CryptoCurrency Trading cannot. BITCOIN is rising because people are investing in this shining object like 10k to 15k – this bubble will burst once Govt takes action or people know the reality what I told you – 7k becoming 14k that’s all – and people lose interest because this will NOT happen always – there is a risk of huge decline.

Greed is the biggest killer of money – BITCOIN And CryptoCurrency Trading is one of them.

When you have better options to make monthly income peacefully why should you invest in such a risky trade?
