In a Reuter’s article dated December 27, 2019, Ueli Maurer, a professor of Computer Science and…


It didn’t take rocket science to see that HEX was a scam. We’d written a few articles about it on Crypto, Trader, News. but now there seems to be proof positive that HEX is dead — or very nearly so.

Let’s take a look at what’s going on.

Etherscan tells no lies

Looking at the Hex main wallet on Etherscan, outgoing transactions began on December 12, 2019, which didn’t raise a lot of concern as most project have operating costs that can be written off as normal. …


There’s one guarantee in life, and that’s death. Sounds morbid to be talking about death and crypto, it but it’s a topic that is dear to me.

If you love your family as much as you love your crypto, please be prepared for the end because it’s going to happen — guaranteed. We don’t know when, where or why of our eventual demise, but when you have assets on a living ledger and your family can’t access them, all of your hard work and investment strategy will die with you…unless you prepare now.

When banking heir and crypto billionaire, Matthew…


Keeping a journal is not just for the writers and poets, pining teenagers or romantics. Keeping a journal is an excellent and important resource to stay abreast of what’s going on in your life. People use journaling for mental health, keeping track of their diet and fitness journey, and yes, among other things, they keep a journal for trading.

If you’ve been trading for a while, certainly you have some form of a journal, whether it’s a spreadsheet, or a notebook, archaic, I know, but a combo of the two actually works for me.

Of course, journaling seems to be…


One of the things that came to mind when broached about this topic was the Dr. Dealgood quote from Mad Max Beyond the Thunderdome: “I know you won’t break the rules, because there aren’t any.”

So, what could I actually tell you about Day Trader No-No’s?

In recent years, speculation related to virtual currency (such as ICO, IFO, IEO, IMO, and STO) have been refurbished and speculative, prices have skyrocketed, and risks have grown rapidly. …


Truth is often bitter and hard to take, but it’s something that we absolutely must accept if we’re going to expand and learn, especially when we’re picking up the pieces of previous mistakes. Solopreneurs and day traders can get into a lot of trouble without the support of trusted associates who are traveling over the same trading hurdles. And that’s why Crypto Trader News exists! Because sometimes hard truths are easier to take from a trusted friend than self-flagellation and going alone.

Here’s the thing: You will fail before you succeed, that’s almost guaranteed.

Truth, as hard as it might…


Fear. Anxiety. Stress. Impatience. Agitation. Suspense. Live dangerously. Go for broke.

Chances are, if you’ve felt any of these emotions while trading in the crypto markets then you’ve gone through a bout of FOMO. That’s right, the Fear Of Missing Out. And depending on its hold, your self-control or lack of it and your disposable cash, you’ve probably dived in when you should have sit out a trade. Sigh. It happens to all of us.
