4- Before purchasing any coin make sure to read its value history, maximum capacity, market cap. And its hashrate.

You need to know value history of the coin because you need to know how many downfall and high peaks the coin reached in the past so that statistically you have a clear vision of the way this coin value changes of the course of time especially if you are planning for long term investment .

Also the maximum capacity of any coin can tell you what’s the maximum amount of the coin that could be earned or mined over the course of time .
Coins that have no maximum capacity can be mined infinitely which over the course of time this coin could lose its value due to high number of supply and low demand .

Coins with limited capacity can be mined up to the specified amount that means the coin has less risk of losing its value over time because the supply is limited, which can be very helpful if you are planning for long term investment.

Market Cap. Shows the total money that people invested into this currency.
Usually cryptos that have higher market cap. are less risky because a lot more people are believing in the coin and are willing to back-up the coin through peaks and troughs, so it’s less likely that the coin will be losing value dramatically.

Hashrate mean how many hashes you have to mine before receiving 1 unit of the coin.
So basically coins with higher hashrate are requiring more hashes to be mined thus are more difficult to get .
So basically if you are willing to invest into crypto-currencies, buying a coin with higher hashrate is less risky and if you’re willing to get some low hashrate coins we suggest mining them instead of purchasing.

5- Before purchasing any crypto-coins, try to read tech experts and tech companies on it.

It’s clear that crypto-currencies are created, evaluated, managed and traded mostly by tech companies and tech enthusiasts. So the last thing you want to do is investing into a coin that is not created by someone with unknown history or well reputation.

Crypto-coins value can change by minutes or even seconds, so before investing your money into any coin please make sure that you have enough time and energy to check the crypto-market at least 5-6 times each day.
Because if you don’t, you may just lose a big opportunity to make big profits or you may lose the chance to sell your coins before they lose their value dramatically.
