I hope we're all having fun with garlicoin. I put together a small guide for anyone who is interested in getting into trading crypto in general.
(This guide will not help you set up a wallet or mining for garlicoin. You can find that information on the official Discord or the offical website listed in the sidebar on the right.) There's a buttload of coins out there. Some of them were made for fun, like garlicoin, or are unlikely to see the development they need to provide a use for the coin. A lot more are already in use in various ways or look to have a promising future. There's really no obvious rallying point for new people getting into crypto. If you want to discover this world, most sincerely, you may want to start by lurking on /CryptoCurrency. There are a lot of new people dipping their toes in crypto right now, and many have the same questions. Seriously, lurking on /CryptoCurrency will do you a lot of good. That said, if you want to trade crypto currencies, the steps toward making that possible are quite simple. There are, in short, four things you need to do (And the fourth is optional). 1. You need to get your hands on some crypto. Mining is really bloody slow for any coin that is already populaworth any meaningful amount of money, so you almost have to buy some crypto with 'real'/fiat money. There are a few exchanges that do accept normal money, but importantly the exchanges you want to spend most of your time on don't. In short, laws and regulations are a lot more stringent for exchanges that let you trade with normal money, so most exchanges don't. But as I said, a few do. The biggest exchange that takes normal money is Coinbase. I must disclose however that I have never used them. I used a competitor called Bitpanda. Using Bitpanda was a quick and painless experience for me, so I do recommend them, however the googles tell me that they charge 1.5% more in fees than Coinbase do, so I'll leave that choice up to you. What you want to do is pick an exchange, create an account, and then get verified. Regardless of the exchange you pick, you are pretty much going to have no choice but to show them your ID. The governments of the world get awfully interested in any company that accepts large amount of 'real' money in exchange for magical Internet buckaroos. Getting verified makes it a lot harder for you to hide your money for tax/divorce/inheritance purposes, so please don't go into this with the intention of trying to deceive your government. Once you are verified, you will be able to purchase your first coins (except garlicoin, the trebuchet of cryptos, which we'll all get to mine together). Now, you will find that there aren't a lot of options. Depending on the exchange, you are likely to be able to buy Litecoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin, and maybe one or two others. Bitcoin is the most famous, of course, but in preparation for step two, you may want to choose one of the other coins your exchange offers, since they have lower transaction/moving fees. Lastly for this step, remember, you absolutely do not need to buy whole coins. You can buy a tenth of a coin if you want. Everyone in crypto thinks the market is going to continue to grow, but it could crash at some point and not recover for years, so... Don't invest money you can't afford to lose or lock up for a long time. And especially do not take out any loans. Jesus Christ, do not take out any loans. 2. Move your money to the main exchanges. You have some crypto! Woo! Unfortunately, the exchanges that accept normal money kinda suck for trading. The fees they charge are way higher than the fees on the main exchanges, and they only deal in a few different coins. So basically, they are only good for moving normal money into crypto and vice versa. So what you want to do now is you want to move the coin you bought to one of the main exchanges. The most popular one bar none for crypto/crypto trading is Binance. Binance has had to close the registration of new accounts for a while recently, but as of a few days ago registrations are back up. There are a lot of competitors to Binance. The one that grew the most during Binance's registration closure was Kucoin. There are dozens of others, but they tend to have much lower trade volumes. It's entirely up to you where you go, but these two may be a good starting point. Binance is the largest and has the most trade, and many coins to choose between, while kucoin has some promising looking small coins that are not yet on Binance. Among the smaller other exchanges you will find dozens and hundreds of even smaller and more unknown coins, but many of these may be actual shit coins that will slowly fade away and die, and any money invested in them will just be lost. Of course, no doubt there are many nuggets of gold out there too. So whichever exchange(s) you go with, and whichever coins you decide to trade for, do some research first. This goes ten times over on the smaller exchanges, but is important even on Binance and Kucoin. Whichever exchange(s) you go with, go your funds/asset page, find the deposit wallet address for the coin you have and withdraw from your first exchange and send to that address. Do not send to the wrong address. Do not send Bitcoin (BTC) to an Ethereum (ETH) address. If you do, that money is lost forever. Yes, really. 3. Trade. There are two main ways of trading crypto, and most of us do a little bit of both and fall somewhere on the spectrum in between. These two are hodl and daytrading. Daytrading is the same as in stocks. All coins tend to go up and down a bit every day. Back and forth. So if you are lucky or patient enough, chances are you could for example buy a coin at $2 apiece, then sell them for $2.1, then buy again at $2... Of course, this is basically gambling, and the coin you bought at $2 could go down to $1.5. But if you put some effort in you can usually come out ahead. The other way is to 'hodl', which is just a meme name for picking a promising coin and hold on to it come hell or high water, because you think that in the long run it's going to increase greatly in value. Holding on to a favoured coin is often the smartest thing to do, because if the coin really has value, sooner or later more and more people will think so too and the price will rise. Ethereum for example is worth about $1000 per coin now, but it started out trading for under a dollar. It's important to remember that ultimately, the price of a coin is 'supposed' to reflect how useful it is. Every coin has some function it is supposed to fill, whether that be the increased privacy offered by privacy coins or enabling other coins to act through them, or competing with ads for website revenue generation or what have you. A lot of people are in crypto to make money speculating, but the foundation upon which all of that rests is the belief that most of these coins have actual, real world applications, either now or on the horizon. You forget this at your peril. /CryptoCurrency has plenty of discussions about the different coins out there, and just about every coin has its own dedicated subreddit where everyone on it is convinced that their coin has a bright future. A lot of them are right, too. But it's important to remember that the people on those subs are self selected for believing in the coin, and it's always a good idea to try to understand why others don't love the coin. Ultimately the best way to determine whether a coin has good potential is to 1. read the white paper (Most people don't, but they really should...), and 2. look up the team behind the coin (Most people don't, but they really should...). The shortcut is to just absorb the general mood on the various crypto subs and other crypto communities, but if you rely entirely on that you'll be surprised every time the community in general is surprised. Knowledge is a very important edge, whether you want to daytrade or hodl, and it's a tool a lot of people don't have. On the other hand, the mere fact that a lot of people believe in a coin is often enough to (temporarily) raise its price even if the coin is ultimately doomed to fail. So ride that wave if you wish, but at that point you're pretty much just gambling. Odds on the crypto market are better than at casinos, but even so. Be careful. And if you enjoy yourself, do take the time to get to know some of the coins. Really, it's fun and interesting and can save/make you a lot of money. Even if you're just in it for money, it's still the smart thing to do. 4. Decide where you want to keep your coins. You have two choices. You can keep your money on exchanges, or you can withdraw your coins and store them in a wallet. Personally I don't have all that much money, and I am content to have it spread out on a few different exchanges. However, a lot of of people are not comfortable leaving their coins on exchanges, because if it is hacked or goes under those coins are easily lost. This is unlikely to happen, especially on the bigger exchanges, but there is no doubt that getting your own wallet is safer. Different coins require different wallets, but a little bit of googling and double checking crypto forums can easily find a wallet that will work for your coin. The only downsides to keeping coins in your own wallet is that there is a (usually small) fee to withdraw coins from exchanges, and if you later want to trade your coin for something else it'll take a while to transfer it back to an exchange. ...And that's it, really. I will list a little bit of advice below, but this is all you 'need' to know to get started.
Be really, really, really sure that you use the right addresses when you send coins. Sending Bitcoin (BTC) to an Ethereum (ETH) address will result in you losing that money forever. There is no bank to call up and do a charge back. The exchanges can't help you. Nobody can undo your mistake if you send money into the void. So make damn sure you are sending your coins to the right address.
There are real scams out there. We are still in the early days of crypto, and it's pretty lawless much of the time. If someone is explaining to you how to send your coins around, and then give you an address to send to, that's not your address. That's theirs. And if you send them your money, it becomes theirs now, and good luck finding a random stranger on the Internet to press charges against. There are also coins that are never going to amount to anything, and if someone convinces you to buy one, that money is gone. There are scams out there. Before you do anything with your money, check around a bit and try find out if a lot of people think there's a scam involved. Sometimes it isn't entirely clear whether something is a scam or not, but in general you want to err on the side of caution. A good example of this is Bitconnect, a company that offers you easy money if you invest your crypto with them. It's not 100 percent clear that they are defrauding people, because all they are doing is offering really, really good interest rates and growing their user base, but their interest rates are so good that almost everyone in crypto is confident that sooner or later they will be unable to pay those interest rates, either because they run out of new customers with whose money to pay the interest for older customers, or because the crypto market will grow too slowly to sustain their growth no matter how large their customer base grows.
No, seriously, don't invest money you can't afford to lose. We are in the wild west here, and a market down turn or a scam can end up costing you a good chunk or even all of the money you put in. By all means spread your money out between multiple coins on multiple exchanges/wallets, but even then, it is very possible that you will end up losing money. Crypto in general has been going up, up and up, but even so there are plenty of coins that have gone up, down, up, and then down down down. Oyster Pearl is a coin I thought looked really promising, and I still think it is, but in the last few weeks it's taken me from 60 cents per coin to four dollars and back down under 2. That's a net increase, but I assure you, it hurt when it fell by half. It hurt a lot. And some people bought in at $4 and lost half their investment in a few days.
That's the end of the guide. If you found this guide helpful, I would really appreciate if you used my referral links when signing up for exchanges. There is no downside for you in doing so, but the exchanges (pretty much all of them) give a small bonus if people sign up with your referral codes. So while I'm including my referral codes, the sites are the ones I use myself, and the ones I genuinely think are the best around. As I said above, I have not used Coinbase. If you wish to use Bitpanda for your initial coin purchase my link is here. For the main exchanges, my Binance link is here, and my Kucoin link is here. Alternatively you can find these sites on google. My Binance referral code is 11598073, and my Kucoin code is 1wHub. You can of course sign up for all these sites without using my referral codes, but if you found this guide helpful I would be grateful if you used them. ...Anyway. That is largely it. That's my guide for getting started in crypto. I can't stress enough that you'll want to take it slow. If $100 is a lot of money for you, start with $10, trade a little, get the hang of it. There's no substitute for personal experience. If you want to invest more, it's even more important that you take it slowly. ...Sorry for the long post, but I wanted to be thorough. Best of luck. Welcome to crypto trading! I'm happy to answer questions. I'm by no means among the most knowledgeable about crypto on reddit, but I'm enthusiastic, and I should know enough to be able to answer most questions a complete beginner may have.
IS REALCASINO? WHAT IS REALCASINO? PROBLEMS PROBLEMS WITH LEGACY ONLINE CASINOS: They are expensive to run. A huge initial investment is required to build the platform and cover / insure bets. This means building an online casino is only an option for well-funded insiders. They take a big cut of the profits. Legacy casinos typically run at 10% edge in order to recoup their investment and run at a profit. They can’t be trusted. It’s impossible to be sure they aren’t cheating by delivering less than random results. On top of that, there’s always the chance they will disappear with your money! PROBLEMS WITH THE FIRST GENERATION OF BLOCKCHAIN-BASED CASINOS: They are slow. Transactions on a public blockchain like Ethereum take on average 30 seconds. This is simply unacceptable for players who are used to instant results. They are expensive. Paying for individual transactions on a public blockchain has become prohibitively expensive. They are boring. Even the newest blockchain-based casinos – the ones that have largely solved the problem of speed and cost - are not designed by online casino professionals so they don’t offer the entertainment that casino players have come to expect. SOLUTION A REAL SOLUTION FOR THE CASINO MARKET: High Speed Our platform does not require a request from miners for every spin. We are developing a custom blockchain that delivers random results in real time. This is the key for gaming – instant response times. Low Cost RealCasino is a modular platform that enables the house to be decentralized. This eliminates the huge investment required to start operations, allowing the “house” to operate at much lower margins. Developers can build simple user interfaces that connect games & players. Provably Fair Mathematically verifiable randomly generated events mean that casino players can finally rest assured that the house isn’t cheating them. Escrow Funds are not held by a centralized entity, but rather enter into escrow via a smart contract making it impossible for the house to run off with your money. Players simply deposit, wager and withdraw. KYC The mass market expects but doesn’t like KYC (know your customer) procedures. KYC attached to a users ETH address allows the player to play with minimal effort. Entertaining and Mobile RealCasino is run by online casino professionals with over a decade of experience. We know how to bring real entertainment that online casino players have come to expect. Our gaming platform goes beyond desktop computers, bringing the best, most exciting games wherever you go with Mobile Live Casino. PRIMARY FEATURESOF REALCASINO PRIMARY FEATURES OF REALCASINO RealCasino is a cryptocurrency powered and distributed globalcasino that utilizes blockchain and smart contracts to deliver a truly fair gaming platform. Our mission is to utilize the decentralized power of smart contracts to provide a global casino platform that delivers the games that players typically expect (slots, table games, dice and Live Games) while providing the ultimate transparent gaming experience in real time (consumers are not prepared to wait more than a second or two for a game result). We achieve this by deploying a network of up to 1,000 nodes that deliver hardware generated random numbers. The smart contract randomly selects a node to deliver the result and the host of the node is remunerated a small fraction of the transaction. SPEED The public blockchain delivers safe, transparent transactions, however Ethereum transactions typically take 7 seconds. Clearly this is not acceptable in a gaming environment where the player expects instantaneous results. TRUST Blockchain technology enables a mathematically provable trust, eliminating the need to rely on a centralized authority. ENTERTAINMENT Entertainment is our number 1 focus. We believe crypto-casinos are a mass market product. To enable that, we are connecting real dealers, real games to the Blockchain and providing an infrastructure for global betting. PUBLIC NETWORK Crypto-based casinos utilise the public blockchain for registration, deposits, events and withdrawals INSTANT REGISTRATION Due to blockchain architecture, a player can register with one simple click and receive a wallet address for deposits and withdrawals. DISTRIBUTED PLATFORM Our platform has the visual content and the transactions that a casino requires. We are not the house and do not take any risk on bets placed. CASINO HYBRID INTERACTIVE PLAY SYSTEM «CASINO HYBRID INTERACTIVE PLAY SYSTEM» OR IN SHORT, «CHIP» IS THE CURRENCY AND UTILITY TOKEN ON OUR PLATFORM. Our platform is end to end “CHIP” with no leakage to fiat currency – players play with “CHIP” and all providers within the platform are remunerated with “CHIP”. “CHIP” can be refunded for local casino chips at any casino in the world. The player simply indicates to us the casino in which he wishes to play and the “CHIP” are converted for local play via our exclusive CHIP trading platform. We perform the KYC once and this is transferred across the blockchain securely to the casino.

This is a marvelous business opportunity for those who wish to host their own domain name and seize the moment of the new, profitable, and very soon, leading sector in the online world of gambling. WHITE LABEL PLATFORM ATTRIBUTES • A reliable, expandable, and adaptable casino solution • Quick setup process - typically 1-2 days for a fully functioning domain • Fast distribution • Fast ROI (Return on Investment) • High security FOR PLAYERS: We are very proud to say that our ‘Noise Nodes’ patent pending technology is totally unique and a global first for the crypto casino industry. We offer an HD quality live dealer experience that is blockchain RNG powered. Our platform takes the real video and visualizes the results from DAO-based events. This will work over all devices, all the time, and in the most entertaining ways possible. From this moment in online history, crypto-casino players can fully audit and trust the results. This is a huge breakthrough in the casino world. FOR PLAYERS: Our technology can act as a bridge between the old world and the new. The player can continue to play at his favourite table once he leaves the casino. The local casino simply has to install a ‘LiveNode’ and they can stream the table to the player for continued play and revenue. Ultimately the land-based casinos will evolve into crypto-based resorts using blockchain technology, but we see this as a circa 10 year transition and during this transition period we will facilitate the connection between the old world and the new. This synchronistic programme will allow us to grow the player base rapidly as the casinos transit toward the virtual gaming world – something already occurring. Adopting our technology will assist in the attracting of players from both the crypto world and the conventional casino player. OUR PLATFORM PROVIDES • Comprehensive back office. • Branding Engine. • Odds & risk Management – especially valuable for Sports Book elements. • 100% Blockchain hosting and powered - no need for server infrastructure.
