Webinar Highlights — Digital Asset Education Series: “Investing and Trading Digital Assets” (Panel Session)*

VegaX Digital Asset Education Series: “Investing and Trading Digital Assets” in Partnership with Chinaccelerator — Panel Session Highlights

Investing and Trading Digital Assets Panel Highlights:

Thoughts on Current Status of Digital Assets:

  • Digital Assets/Crypto was originally for hobbyists, then retail, and now it’s appealing to institutional and professional investors. The market is maturing, experiencing less swings, with bigger trade volume, better volume and security. — Mark @Covario
  • Digital assets have a massive community market; it’s susceptible to macro events that influence the market prices, and is definitely an up and coming field. — Daniel @Seaquake.io

Trends on Investors Across Exchanges Worldwide:

  • We definitely see a growing focus on derivative products, which give new viability and risk management strategies to traders. We’re also seeing more KYC practices and customized product development, across major exchanges. — Daniel @Seaquake.io
  • Right now, crypto trading is mostly retail, including API traders (DIY algo traders and fund managers). About 75% of trading is done via mobile browsers and apps. We also see geographically, most trading is from South Korea, Japan, UK, Vietnam, Turkey, Russia, and the U.S. Based on the usage, mobile platforms tend to appeal more directly to “millennials” and younger demographics (Closer to Gen Z). — Kirill @TabTrader

Institutions & Activity in Digital Assets

  • Essentially, now there is a lot of growth in DeFi and traditional financial products for institutional investors. Large institutional trades are not publicized, mostly because they may be over the counter or party-party negotiation generally. As the digital asset market becomes more popular, it will begin to support greater liquidity volumes, larger players (like Paul Tudor Jones), and more investment product innovation. — Mark @Covario

Considerations for Selecting an Exchange

  • It’s important to consider who is on the other side of your trade. Looking into the freely available statistics help to protect from market manipulating players. Also be sure to work with exchanges that have good security practices and good trading volume. For full-time traders, consider API rate limits, that’s an important consideration. — Daniel @Seaquake.io
  • To be clear, 90% of investors lose money, but you can negate the risk by trading with exchanges that have public profiles as a start. Other key points to consider include:

Retail Investors — Time to Invest?

  • Professionals who have studied in school and/or trained in traditional banking, usually tend to trade better. Institutional investors approach markets in a different way than retail investors. Market forces will eliminate poor performing professional money managers. Park your money with professional money managers who typically outperform individuals. If you are a full time, DIY fund manager, feel free to trade on your own. — Mark @Covario
  • If you are looking for gains only, work with professionals. If you want the experience and learning process, crypto has a phenomenally low barrier of entry and minimum orders. The public, community-driven market gives room for experimentation and the volatile market’s technical indicators are great for learning. — Daniel @Seaquake.io

Final Thoughts: Tips for Making More Money from Investing/Trading Digital Assets

  • Casual traders, trade with an amount you can afford to lose; do NOT borrow money to trade, and ultimately, be sure you enjoy trading. For the trade-savvy and experienced: diversify your portfolio, do not go all-in into crypto/digital assets. Given the volatility of the digital asset market, trading with options and derivatives is particularly powerful. Also, volatility can be a friend! It introduces additional trading volume which creates additional opportunities to make more money. Learn! — Kirill @TabTrader
  • Never have your portfolio keep you up at night. Crypto is a 24/7 market, unlike the US equity markets. Pick larger “Dow Jones”-like tokens like Bitcoin (BTC) or Ethereum (ETH), over the more obscure “pink sheet” alt-coins. In opposition to Kirill, stay away from derivatives if you do NOT fully understand what’s going on. — Mark @Covario
  • It’s important to learn to use all trading tools and features to manage risk: limit orders, bill and kill, icebergs, etc., which are being released on most exchanges now. Be consistent with risk strategy overall to best navigate the markets volatility. Also use an exchange partnered with a market maker and liquidity provider, so you can exit at moment’s notice. — Daniel @Seaquake.io
