What Is BlockFi, And Is It Worth It?

What Is BlockFi, And Is It Worth It?

As more people get involved with Cryptocurrency, more apps and websites are coming out offering access to the crypto market. One website that stands out however, is BlockFi

BlockFi is a website which allows users to buy, sell and manage up to eight types of cryptocurrencies. The list includes BTC, ETH, LTC, and PAXG, as well as USD-based stablecoins, including USDC, USDT, GUSD, and PAX.

 

Pros of using BlockFi:

 

The site has many benefits including a streamlined interface which makes it easy to use, it is mobile-friendly and offers a good referral program. Users can earn up to $20 in FREE Bitcoin for every friend they get to sign up using their referral link. 

While all this sounds good, this isn’t the platform’s biggest selling point. BlockFi is becoming increasingly popular due to its shockingly high interest rates on earnings, with up to 8.6% APY. 

 

That is more than DOUBLE your average interest rate at a traditional bank. You get to earn extra money by simply holding funds in your account. 

 

Some other benefits worth mentioning. There is no savings account minimums, access to a Bitcoin rewards credit card and is insured by AON. 

Cons of using BlockFi:

 

While this platform offers a plethora of benefits, there are a few areas where it lacks. 

Firstly, BlockFi does not appear to be a good place for beginners. The site lacks educational resources and does not offer access to advisers. 

 

Another disadvantage is it’s withdrawal policies, only permitting one free withdrawal per month. Any additional withdrawal after that will cost you 0.0025 Bitcoin. 

 

Overall, BlockFi seems legit, with the pros outweighing the cons in our opinion. 

Fed Vows To Keep Interest Rates Near Zero Through 2023, Optimistic For Economic Outlook

Fed Vows To Keep Interest Rates Near Zero Through 2023, Optimistic For Economic Outlook

March 17, 2021 – The Federal Reserve announced plans to keep interest rates near zero for the next two years, Wednesday. Fed Chairman Jerome Powell made that announcement during a meeting to discuss monetary policy for March, 2021. 

During that meeting, officials also voted to keep short-term borrowing rates steady near zero. 

Stocks were trading lower before that announcement, but picked up following the news, with Wall Street ending Wednesday’s session higher. 

While the brief rally left some investors optimistic, there are still concerts for potential dips this week. 

Rising treasury yields continue to have an impact on the markets, leaving tech stocks volatile. The 10-year treasury yield hit its highest point in more than a year during mid-day trading, at 1.69%. 

This could create good opportunities for investors. During the past month, purchases of ALT currencies like Bitcoin shot up with treasury yield rates. This means keep an eye on the treasury yield, because those spikes could create a good selling opportunity. Then you can buy back in after it comes back down. 

As for stocks, focus on anything that is trading above its 21-day and 50-day trading averages. 

With the ramp up in vaccinations and more states rolling back restrictions, the leisure and hospitality sector could be a good buy in too.

Online trading is currently becoming one of the most sought-after sources of income and ways to make money online. Whether you want more disposable income, want to save for a house or simply want to take care of your family, trading offers the unlimited earning potential many are craving for. However, the financial markets are extremely volatile and challenging to predict for the average person. It’s often difficult to find the right place to learn and get started.

The ‘Foreign Exchange’ market, better known as Forex, is one of the largest financial markets in the world. One of the main reasons for the growing popularity of Forex is perhaps the ‘ease’ of access in comparison to the somewhat ‘complex’ world of the stock market.

However, understanding the Forex market and how to trade it successfully can be just as difficult. It requires skills, patience, and also a good amount of training.

Why should I learn to trade?

“An investment in knowledge pays the best interest” – Benjamin Franklin.

Learning to trade is investing in your education and your financial future. Learning to trade is investing in yourself. Trading allows you to effectively generate wealth without impacting on your work life, family life and other commitments.

How To Start Trading With £1000

How to start trading with £1000​

This guide provides a detailed overview of how to start trading with minimal investment and make profits on your trading account. By the end of this guide, you will know how to get started trading with £1,000.00.

Trading can be immensely rewarding, providing professional satisfaction and financial independence to those who take the time to do it right. Even with just £1000, successful trading can very much be possible, as there are many traders out there who started with low capital amounts and turned that initial investment into a profitable trading career.

What kind of investor are you?

When you start trading, it is important to establish quite early on what type of investor you are. Identifying this type will help you know the consequences of your investment style, learning your own personal imitations and advantages that naturally result from the way you invest. Your trading method needs to be something you prefer and suits your lifestyle best, considering your
finances, available time and risk factor.

For example, active investors work hard to acquire and save money but spend less energy making their money work for them. They understand that the wealth-building game is about return on capital, which is why they are willing to spend that extra time.

Choose your market

There are so many different markets for you to choose from, so it is important to establish what you are going to focus on and what different markets you can keep tabs on at any one time. Some traders would prefer to trade a single product and some will benefit from trading many, so this balance needs to be established from the offset and is dependent on the trader and their
strategy.

One of the markets we recommend to start with is the Forex market, which is the largest market in the world and facilitates the exchange of one currency for another currency. Trading volume in the Forex market is generally very large because of the number of people who participate in it around the world. You essentially buy or sell currencies with the aim of making a profit from the changes in their value. Due to its huge popularity, the Forex market attracts many UK traders, both beginners and experienced traders alike.

Start trading on your own

As much as it may be nerve-wracking, the only way to improve your trading skills is to practice. No matter whether you decide to trade in the Forex, stocks or cryptocurrency markets, learn as much as you can about how these markets work. Education is key, so it is vital to gather as much information at an early stage as mistakes, later on, can be very costly and demotivating. Here at starttrading.com, we often recommend starting with a demo account. This will allow you as a trader, to start practising when placing trades and executing your trading strategies without the risk of losing real money.

How can starttrading.com help?

As a business, we are very knowledgeable in many aspects of online trading, with our team having a combined trading experience of over 15 years. We have quickly become one of the UK’s leading and fastest-growing trading schools – with a worldwide student base. If you would like some advice when starting to trade with £1000, please get in touch with one of our trading mentors today who will help guide you through the processes. We provide services which can both teach and guide you into the right direction of a bright financial future in the stock market.
