The Cryptocurrency space is a volatile one so make sure you research and stay informed. Understand your coins and the market place and you should be okay. SmashingBloke believes in Long Term investments. Short term or long term, you might get hurt and lose some cash unless you understand what you are doing, which means researching the coin before you invest and much more important, understanding what you have just read. By this, SmashingBloke means understanding the tech, the solution proposed, the background of the team, etc.

If you are new to this space and just looking for something that is 'almost' safe, stick with the top 5 or 10. If you want to make bigger gains, you should look at the coins sitting outside the top 10. Invest early in the coin and you can make 2x, 3x, or even more when the coin hits the top 10.

All of this stuff is not about Bitcoin but about the Blockchain. Not all altcoins were intended to be currencies. Ethereum, second generation Cryptocurrency, is a Smart Contracts platform which has introduced a new perspective to the Blockchain.

Read, Understand, Learn. The Blockchain is the future and here at SmashingBloke we believe in the Blockchain.
