Cryptocurrency is hot right now. No matter where you like, people on social media and news outlets are reporting the latest news on cryptocurrency.

Perhaps you’ve caught the bug, and want to start investing. We can’t blame you, it’s a great way to make money. But how do you go about getting into the world of digital currency?

This article will walk you through a quick guide on how to start investing in cryptocurrency.

Understand Cryptocurrency

Before you invest in any form of crypto, it’s important to understand why digital currency exists at all.

The idea behind most cryptocurrencies is to create a secure, peer-to-peer currency that can effectively transfer money between people without the government’s involvement. The fact that there’s no physical currency means that one never needs to worry about a mint.

Figure Out Which Crypto You Want

Currently, there are almost 10,000 cryptocurrencies out there that you can invest in. Research cryptocurrencies to figure out which one best suits you.

Bitcoin is the most popular option and the original cryptocurrency. Bitcoin is volatile compared to traditional investments. However, if you’re looking for an investment that’s well known and accepted by mainstream society, look no further than bitcoin.

Ethereum is the second most popular option for cryptocurrency. It reduces the level of volatility and inflation that bitcoin falls victim to, by limiting the number of tokens in existence.

Litecoin is a cryptocurrency that many people consider an underdog. It’s famous for being very easy to buy and sell, which could help newbies get into cryptocurrency in the future, sparking market growth.

Dogecoin is a cryptocurrency that’s currently not considered a great investment. However, it demonstrates an important lesson about cryptocurrency. There’s little that makes dogecoin unique except for it’s meme-based name; but that meme name caused its market share to spike for a short period of time, making a select number of people rich.

Figure Out Where To Buy

It can be a little tough for a newcomer to figure out where to buy cryptocurrency. In the future, it’s likely that you’ll be able to exchange your money for crypto wherever there’s an ATM, but for now, it’s not so easy.

The most popular ways to buy crypto are to find an online crypto wallet or to encounter someone on a forum who will sell you crypto peer-to-peer. We recommend using a wallet since you’re less likely to get scammed by someone you don’t know.
