Lesson 8: Course Wrap-up: Your Roadmap Ahead

A quick recap of the course

In this course, we’ve learned that cryptocurrencies are digital money, secured by cryptography and recorded on a transparent and tamper-proof digital ledger called blockchain.

Unlike traditional currencies governed by banks, cryptocurrencies are decentralised, ensuring democratic transaction verification. Their values fluctuate, but they signify a transparent, accessible digital financial future.

Cryptocurrencies provide financial inclusion for billions without bank access, using just smartphones. The realm is rife with innovations, from decentralised apps to tokenized

assets. Cryptocurrency is not just an asset; it’s a transformative movement.

Next, we discussed DCA or Dollar-Cost Averaging. We said DCA was a consistent investment strategy, ideal for navigating crypto’s volatility. Instead of one-time investments, you invest fixed amounts regularly, buying more when prices dip and less when they rise, smoothing out cost over time. DCA offers a steady investment approach and is perfect for beginners.

What makes DCA so powerful is compounding which means investments earning interest on interest, resulting in exponential growth.

Kriptomat’s Recurring Buy feature allows automated cryptocurrency purchases at set intervals. Users can buy any coin in euros using a fiat balance or a credit card. Investments range from 15 to 1000 EUR, scheduled weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly.

Then we went on to learn about swing trading. Swing trading is a strategy where investors target price fluctuations, holding assets for short to medium terms, rather than long-term. It’s an active way of trading that requires a thorough understanding of technical analysis and risk management.

Swing trading offers benefits such as shorter exposure to market conditions, profiting from ups and downs, and the potential for compounded gains. However, it also demands emotional discipline and in-depth technical knowledge.

To succeed in swing trading, you need to understand some core concepts such as trend recognition, support and resistance, volume, chart patterns, technical indicators, and risk management. Staying up to date with the broader market context and consistently reviewing your strategies is also crucial.

You can use Kriptomat’s Explore and Prices sections to analyse the fundamental and technical aspects of any asset listed on the platform.

Kriptomat lets you set up price alerts, so you’re notified when a price reaches a certain value. With automatic buy and sell orders, you can easily buy and sell assets at predefined prices.

Finally, with Kriptomat you can also set up a hybrid approach where you allocate a part of your portfolio to passive and automatic DCA – ensuring you’re benefiting from market average pricing – and another part to Swing trading. This diversifies your risk, gives you more control, and can potentially amplify your gains.

With consistency and over time, you will develop your own trading strategy. You should ask yourself what your investment goals are, how much time you can commit to trading, what is your risk tolerance, how well can you handle your emotions and what is your level of knowledge and experience. If you’re a beginner, the best approach might be to start with the DCA method and slowly work towards swing trading. At Kriptomat, we’re by your side at every stage.
