I would also add an important piece of advice:
"Less nervous and do not give in to panic"

I completely agree with the opinion not to trust anyone but yourself. This rule especially concerns various financial operations and trading.

I understand that this advice is meant to be cynical but it's getting to the gist of it. Like in any kind of economic situation, you are forced to make your own decisions - but you can learn where to look for information.
May you live in interesting times

I dont....better trust your mom or dad...they are at least real ;)
Since I am quite new in the cryptocurrency world (compared to others) I realize that the security factor is as important or maybe more important than making good decisions in where to invest or not...

Trust no one.  They all have vested interests.  Trust your decisions but be sure before even doing something big when doing bitcoin, do not spend more of what you're not prepared to lose.

Wallet security is the worst issue faced by the cryptocurrency traders as there are a lot of hackers which always keep an eye on snatching and stealing your coins. You can not trust anybody on the money markets including cryptocurrencies. Am I right folks!

You are strictly advised to trust nobody on the money markets inculding cryptocurrency market. You have to trust the one who has good market vlaues and reputation whether he is a trader or a platform. Stay safe and be wise!

A good post for the newbies to the crypto world. Yes, I agree with the fact that you can not trust anybody on the money market. You have to stay sharp all the time for keeping yourself safe from any kind of scam. You also need to keep learning as much as possible for gaining profits.

I will say in simple words, you just not need to trust ANYONE. If you do then you are absolutely fooling around. It is incredibly necessary to just follow the trend and do whatever you are comfortable with.


I just follow the stuff happening in the Crypto space and rest is all manageable. The current thing of notice is around Binance as they released the demo of decentralized exchange. So these are the things to look at.

I agree with all this FAQ and it's answers. These are the most important things to always put in mind wherever you are, whatever you do. That's why "trust" is valuable these days. We can't just trust anybody right away. It must be gained with patience. Always DYOR.

Yes trust no one, but sometimes taking a risk is a bang! My crypto friend introduce MyShield to me and so far I can say that this project is worth trusting for.
