A number of cryptocurrencies are decentralized networks based on blockchain technology (a distributed ledger enforced by a disparate network of computers).

Example of Cryptocurrencies are Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Cardano and nearly over 6,000 others as of 2021. Let's take a look at Bitcoin and how it has grown over the years.

What is Bitcoin?

Bitcoin is one of the most recognized cryptocurrencies which was invented in 2008 by an unknown person or group of people using the name Satoshi Nakamoto. The currency, which came into circulation in 2009, has grown over 45,000% between 2013 and 2021.

We have made this guide free of charge and as easy as possible to understand. Follow the steps below to start making money in the crypto market.

A Multi-Crypocurrency Wallet

This is basically the first thing you will need to start trading on the internet, as you will want your crypto assets stored in a safe space online.

You can go through the list of some crypto wallets above and make your choice, but before choosing a wallet you have to consider security and account safety.

Perform Cryptocurrency Analysis

This is another important part of trading which helps you decide the next coins to buy/hold and make profit. You can Do Your Own Research (DYOR) on Search Engines, by going through trends in the crypto market.

For analytics, a number of crypto wallets offer graphs that show the performance of a particular cryptocurrency over time. Just like in the photos above, those were from the trust wallet app.

You can also view insights directly on, one of the more widely recognized crypto analysis website. Coinmarketcap allows you to view other information like price changes, the ranking, the market capitalization, etc. of any crypto asset.

You need to know that if a coin is listed on coinmarketcap, this means that the coin has been recognized globally and can be traded on.

I would also recommend Tradingview as another analytics platform that allows you to view graphs, market caps and ideas on different cryptocurrencies. Here is a link to the tradingview ideas page.

After you have gotten your crypto wallet and done your research, you can now start trading (buying and selling) cryptocurrencies on the internet.

While buying a coin, you can decide to take a profit in the short-run or hold on for a longer period of time, which can be upto months or even years, depending on your expectations and analysis.
