How Bitcoin Trading Is Evolving with Technology


October 16, 2019



Bitcoin was launched as a purely digital currency at the turn of the decade but soon after, physical bitcoins were introduced into the market. While physical bitcoins were more intriguing back at the time, it is the digital version that continues to attract more traders to the world of cryptocurrencies.

Technology has been central to the growth of cryptocurrency trading partly by facilitating the adoption of bitcoin as a payment method across several online platforms and physical stores. However, the more significant development has been in creating more ways that people can use to invest in bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.

Investing in bitcoin via masternodes

In computing terms, nodes are devices that run and maintain computer networks. In the cryptocurrency industry, we have three main types of nodes. Full nodes can access and store a network, Light Clients can access and download part of the network, and then we have masternodes, which are designed to perform special functions in a blockchain network.

Masternodes facilitate the smooth functioning of a cryptocurrency network and to run efficiently they must be operated by network members, who effectively commit a certain amount of their cryptocurrency holdings for periodic rewards while still retaining ownership of the amount committed. It works more like the bond market, in this case, the masternodes rewards mimick interest payments.
 

Bitcoin cloud mining

Bitcoin mining is one of the easiest ways of investing in the cryptocurrency industry. However, the initial investment required for hardware coupled with the additional power consumption can make things a little challenging.

This challenge can, however, be overcome by mining cryptocurrencies via cloud platforms. When you mine bitcoin via a cloud platform, you are using shared processing power hosted on remote centers and this means that you save cost on hardware and electricity bill. Bitcoin miners are paid based on the rate of minting bitcoin, which currently stands at 12.5 bitcoins per block and the fees charged. As the rate of minting bitcoin falls lower, bitcoin mining rewards rely more on the fees charged.

More revolutionary bitcoin mining apps have also emerged, which offer miners some interesting prospects for making money in the cryptocurrency industry. Some of them are very vague in the way they work, but others are clearer and concise. Developers have also introduced intuitive bitcoin trading apps, which track the evolution od bitcoin while others help traders to trade the volatility of bitcoin passively. Again, it is important to do due diligence on these apps before investing in one. One way of identifying the ones that you can rely on for sustainable profits is by engaging with current and past users of the app or platform and reading expert opinions. Reviews like this InsideBitcoin’s Bitcoin Evolution Review can form a good basis for gauging how cryptocurrency trading robots like Bitcoin Evolution resonate with traders in the market. But that shouldn’t be your final stop in your quest to find the best apps for cryptocurrency trading.

Airdrops

And airdrop is the distribution of cryptocurrencies to network or project members for free. Airdrops are an effective means of attracting new cryptocurrency traders to join the project or network, which results in a larger user base thereby creating room for the disbursement of more coins or tokens.

Recipient wallets can either be selected randomly or the project creators can publish the event on one of the websites that accept cryptocurrency airdrops. In most cases, airdrops are allocated depending on the value of the cryptocurrency held in various wallets.

The higher the value, the more tokens the wallet receives. Most project creators also set a minimum value as a threshold for participating cryptocurrency wallets to qualify for airdrops.

Conclusion

In summary, there are now several ways to invest in cryptocurrencies like bitcoin. The traditional buy and hold option via cryptocurrency exchanges is still the most popular while cryptocurrency trading via CFDs on forex brokerage platforms comes in at a close second.

However, more revolutionary methods have emerged over the last few years, some of which, require little to no investment to begin earning bitcoins.
