Risks Of Bitcoin You Should Know Before Investing

Risks Of Bitcoin You Should Know Before Investing
Cryptocurrency is considered the future of monetary exchange. Trading goods online with a global currency certainly sounds like a method that could expedite commerce without the complications of a national currency.
https://preview.redd.it/xrhuirqxxex31.jpg?width=292&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=376508fb77818919a6837847b16743ec75f41cb3
Bitcoin is the most successful currency today, but with any new frontier, there are bound to be some obstacles. Despite bitcoin’s recent popularity, there are some serious risks when it comes to investing in cryptocurrency.
With so many people rushing to invest, it’s important to be aware of the concerns surrounding this new market. Here are the top 10 risks of bitcoin investing and how to avoid getting caught up in them.

The Volatile And Fluctuating Market
The price of bitcoin is constantly changing. As of November 6, 2018, one bitcoin was worth $6,461.01. If you happened to purchase a bitcoin on December 17, 2017, the price topped $20,000. Days later, on the 24th, buyers could not sell their investment for more than $14,626. The bitcoin market is constantly rippling back and forth. With such an unpredictable market, there’s no telling if you will get a return on your investment. To avoid a massive loss, keep a vigilant eye on the market. Make small investments; they’ll be more beneficial long-term.

Cybertheft
Cryptocurrency is technology-based, which leaves this investment open to cyberattacks. Hacking is a serious risk, since there is no way to retrieve your lost or stolen bitcoins. Many reports suggest that many buyers lose their investments on exchanges and mining losses. Exchanges are more likely to hacked -- even if you have the protection of a smart wallet. Additionally, if you do have a wallet and you forget or misplace your key, there is rarely a way to retrieve your coins. Carefully research your cryptocurrency wallets to be sure you have the most reliable option.

Technology Reliance
Bitcoin is an online exchange that is reliant on technology. Coins are digitally mined, exchanged via smart wallet and kept in check using various systems. Without that technology, cryptocurrency is worth nothing. Unlike other forms of currency or investment, there is no physical collateral to back it up. With gold, real estate, bonds or mutual funds, you own something that can be exchanged. With a currency that is 100% technology-based, bitcoin owners are more vulnerable to cyberthreats, online fraud and a system that can be shut down.

Limited Use
Bitcoin may be a step toward a new monetary exchange; however, there are few companies that accept it as a viable form of currency. Currently, a few online stores, including Overstock, Newegg and Monoprix, allow cryptocurrency exchanges. Additionally, bitcoin owners can use their funds for travel with companies like AirBaltic, Air Lituanica and CheapAir.com. Unfortunately, many companies do not recognize bitcoin as a legitimate exchange.

Currency Or Investment Opportunity?
Cryptocurrency could be an effective online currency exchange; however, buyers buy up bitcoins with the intent of investing much as they would with stocks. Some even think that bitcoin is a solid investment opportunity for retirement. With a constantly shifting market, no regulation and zero physical collateral, investors can end up losing everything they invest. While bitcoin could potentially pay off, the best way to approach this investment is with caution. Small investments and small steps will cover more ground.

Reminder this is r/stock and not a crypto sub; feedback welcomed.

The reason why we have a rule against crypto discussions is because this is stocks where we discuss stocks.
Last year we had a surge of comments that were literally "buy bitcoin" in almost every single post on stocks, and it wasn't just a single comment, sometimes you would find 10 users stating the exact same thing, "buy bitcoin" or going into details on how to mine bitcoins; this is spam & off topic.
Also Bitcoin is not a stock, just like discussing buying & reselling sneakers is not a stock, these discussions are off topic and that reason alone was enough to remove posts & comments. Unfortunately this wasn't enough, so we created a rule (see sidebar) against discussing crypto with a link to a sub where you could; we also made an automod rule to deal with this.
If you want to discuss investing in general, you can go to investing, which is mentioned in the sidebar (on mobile by tapping "about this community"). If you want to discuss crypto & mining you can go to CryptoCurrency.
Below is the automod message I wrote, please give me your criticism & feedback on this. I made it informative to deal with some misconceptions & misinformation (including GPU mining).
You can also see that when a stock is related to crypto, I've whitelisted that stock (including this post) so you can discuss crypto as long as that discussion is related to the stock (or this post), so it's not 100% removal; it also only affects top level comments:
Sorry your comment (link to comment) in /stocks was automatically removed as per rule 6: Bitcoins & cryptocurrenies should be discussed in CryptoCurrency.
This probably only affects your comment if it was a top level suggestion. Keep in mind this is stocks and people come here for stock suggestions.
We've whitelisted some discussions on crypto, but not all such as bitcoin & crypto holding ETFs and futures (explanation below). However we allow crypto discussions on the following: Coinbase IPO, Square INC, Overstock, XNET, MARA, GCAP, NVDA, AMD, and Kodak; this list will always be updated (see below to what won't be included).
A list of the rules can be found here, and if you're new to stocks please see the wiki and/or read this post.
If you're just wondering if cryptocoins are an investment, read here.
Please note:
Thanks for understanding.
Again this post is whitelisted so you can mention any crypto related keyword (as long as it deals with this post), and please provide your feedback which will help me whitelist more stocks/keywords; again keep in mind this is stocks.
Update: Based on feedback I updated the bullet point regarding the size of crypto market vs stock market, thanks u/yourslice
Update2: Based on information provided by u/mike_996, I'm whitelisting NVDA & AMD against crypto related keywords. However I'll be making a 2nd rule that'll remove "how to mine" type questions w/ a message that contains links to sub reddits on mining.

A Merchant´s View on Accepting Cryptocurrency

Hey fellas. Just want to vent for a bit.
I have been a retailer for all my grown life. Started selling pirated burned CDs in my university, in Venezuela, around 2002. That was my first business. After that, I had a small chicha cart (a local beverage), and later on I opened my first retail store.
That was before the Venezuela´s currency exchange controls were tightened, and I started importing clothes from China and overstock from USA. Then, things got complicated. It became impossible to change your Bolivares to hard currency at the government rates, but there were alternative ways. I ended up opening a bank account in the US, and buying USD in the "Permuta" grey market, which was basically a bond swap, you bought them in bolivares and the broker sold it in the US, and you got your USD without issue. Still was an escape valve for the forex control. But then the government also banned that,
Now there was only the black market. And a black market, with low supply and working in the shadows, where the price is determined in the few exchanges that still take Bolívares in the Colombian border town of Cúcuta, is a recipe for disaster.
I kept doing business like that. Ended up leaving Venezuela a couple years ago, setting up a shop in the Caribbean.
Local banks in the island I live in have many limitations. Still to this date I don´t have a credit card, a lot of requirements for Venezuelans here.
My US account was closed because they flagged a wire transfer I made to China as unusual, and asked me to go to the bank´s offices. And in this island there is no branch. So they closed that account.
My experience with banks has been plain torture. I am fed up with the banking system. After I started a line of sunglasses for my brick and mortar store, selling online got into my head.
But given my experience with banks, I took a drastic decision: I would give up around 99% of my potential market, and refuse taking credit cards, and just accept crypto. Just started a couple of weeks ago.
So far the experience has been great, reception has been encouraging and the community has been nothing but supportive. Right now I am accepting Bitcoin Cash, Ether and Nano.
Maybe later in another post, I might explain why I picked those cryptos to start, the payment gateways and the process of setting everything up.
My shop is https://wkend.club for anyone interested in taking a look.
