The financial services industry is enjoying a phenomenal growth and Stanbic IBTC bank, certainly is not left behind in its effort to consistently guarantee a seamless digital experience. Everyday customers are exposed to innovative mobile technologies, this therefore places a higher expectation that Banking Apps will provide a fully rounded experience.

Stanbic IBTC Holdings PLC, a member of Standard Bank Group, has upgraded its mobile App by introducing exciting features to enable seamless transactions for its customers with additional cutting-edge capabilities to enhance the customer experience. The App, termed the “Super App” is a one-stop App that offers the opportunity to transact across core banking transactions, while also managing Mutual Funds, Pensions, Insurance and Stockbroking accounts. Customers have a unique opportunity to experience unified access to all of these products, all at once. The App delivers easier, faster, and more convenient all-round experience.

At its core, the App has “My Bank” Module.  This module of the Super App makes it possible to transfer funds to a single as well as multiple beneficiaries. You can also use My Bank on the Stanbic IBTC Super App to buy airtime, pay bills, make cardless withdrawals from an ATM, schedule payments and load a prepaid card. The special ‘Hide Account Balance’ feature on My Bank allows customers to hide their account balance, especially when in public or insecure environments.

Everything you need to know about Crypto Trading

Trading cryptocurrencies has many benefits, but here is everything you may need to know.

Published

on

Trading cryptocurrency simply involves changing one cryptocurrency to another cryptocurrency or changing crypto to local money or Fiat. On the other hand, cryptocurrency trading also covers the buying and selling of any crypto or coins and exchanging to the fiat of one’s choice.

To trade crypto assets, the first thing you need to do is to ensure you have a wallet where you can keep any cryptocurrency you’ll be purchasing from any crypto exchange platform like Remitano, Coinbase, Binance, etc. The first stage of trading cryptocurrency is creating an account. The essence of creating an account is to show interest and also give you the platform to get your cryptocurrency wallet.

What are the cryptocurrency exchange platforms?

These are platforms that allow the buying and selling of cryptocurrencies. There are centralized and decentralized platforms, but the bests are always decentralized. The decentralized platforms are controlled by multiple systems (meaning there is no single computer controlling it). These platforms allow you to buy and sell cryptocurrency and as well as store them in your wallet.

Read this article about decentralized cryptocurrency exchanges (DEX) to gain more insight into decentralized exchanges.

Exchanges charge traders a fee for allowing you to trade cryptocurrencies. The average fee per trade is 0.1% of each trade executed on the platform. Billions of dollars worth of crypto assets are traded every day. Lucky traders and early adopters have made it big from trading cryptocurrencies, and it is now their full-time job.

From my experience, there are basically two types of cryptocurrency trading; short term trading and long term trading. Now let’s look at these types of trading.

Short term trading

This refers to buying cryptocurrency at a low price only to hold for a short time before selling at a marginal profit. Trading time can be between minutes to months.

GTBank 728 x 90

The idea is simple; you buy a coin because you think the price will increase in a short time and then sell it for a quick profit.

This guide on day trading will help you become an expert at short term trading.

Long term trading

Long term holding refers to the act of holding a particular crypto asset for a very long time, years to be precise. The word HODL which means Hold on For Dear Life originates from long term trading. The idea of long term trading is to hold crypto assets for a very long term regardless of the volatility with the hope that it will increase by a significant factor after years of holding.

Risks of trading cryptocurrencies

Fluctuations are the most significant problem that cryptocurrency traders face. Trading cryptocurrencies have many benefits, but before you trade, you must be aware of the risks involved in trading. Below are some of the cryptocurrency-related risks.

Cryptocurrency fluctuates: There is no fixed price over a fixed period for cryptocurrency. This means the worth of a cryptocurrency today can change tomorrow. The change can be slow or rapid, but it is quite unusual for cryptocurrency value to drop heavily. Most times, whenever it drops, it is always little, and there’s still a time when it will pump (cryptocurrency increases).

Cryptocurrency is not regulated: The bank and government are not in control of these digital assets. However, people are paying more attention to it because of its usefulness and how it is becoming generally accepted across the globe.

Security risks: There can be cryptocurrency mistakes, and cryptocurrency can be hacked: Sometimes, avoiding obstacles as a result of technical failures might be difficult. Hackers can also hack into cryptocurrencies and toy with it.

The best way to avoid issues with cryptocurrency is to get as much information as possible before starting.

This is a reliable platform for multiple cryptocurrencies. You can also make deposits from your local bank (credit card or any other option that suits you). The multiple payment option and high security, state compliance with regulatory organizations are top reasons why you should consider the platform.

What makes cryptocurrencies ideal for trading

 The primary reason why cryptocurrencies are ideal for trading is because of the fluctuations. There are cases where you’ll have more profits due to the price when you bought the cryptocurrency, and you experienced an increase in the long run (that means you’re making a profit). Also, the opportunity to buy cryptocurrencies when they’re cheaper or at the prices that are convenient for you and sell off when you realized they’ve increased in value makes cryptocurrency ideal for trading.

It is an undisputed fact that the income coming from crypto trading might not be as huge as you might have envisaged, however, the more the value of the cryptocurrency you’re holding or trading, and the longer you hold your cryptocurrency, the more your chances of cashing out big.

The price is influenced by the economic factor of demand and supply. This is what the cryptocurrency traders use in balancing their portfolio. Cryptocurrency is just a different and unique investment form or opportunity.

Now that you understand everything about crypto trading, you can learn how to begin cryptocurrency trading in 2020.
