How to prepare for the next crypto bull run


Recommended Posts

Despite the approval of the Bitcoin spot ETF, the sentiment around the market is not what investors actually expected. Also, it is quite uncertain if the BTC post halving will lead to the next bull run hence it’s important to have a plan mapped out while anticipating the next bull run. There quite a lot of the strategies to consider but I will discuss 6 of them below.

a. Research potential investments thoroughly
Before you start investing in any cryptocurrency, it is essential to take your time to research, study, analyze and understand the crypto project’s fundamentals, team, goals, roadmap and potential for growth.

b. Watch out for market sentiment
You should also monitor the all-around sentiment in the crypto market as it will help you to make informed decisions during investment. You can monitor the market sentiments by staying updated about the latest news, keeping an eye on expert opinions and insight, and following market indicators or trend. 

c. Diversify your portfolio
When it comes to cryptocurrency investment or any other kind of investment, you don’t put all your eggs in one basket. It is crucial to diversify your investments across different cryptocurrencies and areas within the crypto market. Diversification is a strategy that can you manage risk and maximize profits. While the certainty is not assured, you might want to consider some earn product like Shark Fin, Smart Trend, Dual Investment and many other product that investors are using to stay afloat in this period.

d. Set clear investment goals
Before you start investing in crypto you must set out clear investment goals so that you don’t lose focus along the line. Establish your investment goals, risk tolerance, as well as the time horizon before you enter the market. Setting up a clear plan will help you make more reasonable investment decisions.

e. Use dollar-cost averaging
Rather than trying to time the crypto market, try the DCA strategy by investing a fixed amount of cash at regular intervals. This method can help to minimize the effect of short-term price changes and decrease the risk of joining the market at a high point.

f. Take your profits when necessary
While it is important to have a long-term investment plan, don’t be among the moonboys and ensure you take profit when you attain your targets. By doing this, you lock in profits and avoid terrible losses during crypto market corrections.

Hopefully this piece will be of help while we await the crypto bull run, do you have other strategies that could be vital for readers, feel free to add in the comment section.

I have two major trading styles I often use for my trades. First one I learnt when I started crypto was spot trade to buy and Hold some coins, mostly for the long term and if I need to do some short term trades, I use copy trading on Bitget and it has been helpful, especially when the market is ranging. I'd have tried some DEX bounties but the gas fee looks too much for me. 

What are your indicators?

Despite the approval of the Bitcoin spot ETF

'Bitcoin's ETF approval marks its maturity as an investment'

The 18% loss seen in the immediate aftermath of the approval of the ETF a few weeks ago was the market retracing back into the 200% gains seen in Bitcoin over the previous 14 months.

 Written by: Jeremy Naylor | Analyst, London | Publication date: 

But, Hector McNeil, founder and CEO of HANetf, says if the pattern is repeated from the first EFT in gold two decades ago, then this is the beginning of the maturity of Bitcoin into an investment that will form part of many portfolios.

He says the ‘wild west’ that was the trading environment of cryptocurrencies will increasingly be a thing of the past. Then, on from this point, is likely to come ETF approvals for other cryptos such as Ethereum.

The Bitcoin ETF

The Bitcoin ETF, a type of investment fund, was approved a few weeks ago. On its first day, the 10 new funds together brought in around $4.7 billion. However, the price of Bitcoin has since dropped by about 18%. Hector McNeill, who helped create the first gold ETF 20 years ago and is now the CEO of HANetf, discusses how these two types of ETFs are similar. He thinks ETFs are valuable because they allow people to invest in assets that are typically difficult to trade.

Additionally, ETFs offer protections and are regulated, unlike the crypto world. McNeil hopes that the approval of the Bitcoin ETF by the SEC will encourage regulators like the UK's Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) to be more open to cryptocurrencies.

One advantage of ETFs, according to McNeil, is that investors can have a regulated product and combine all their investments in one place. Currently, the FCA only allows professional investors to access Bitcoin through a special product called spot Bitcoin. However, retail investors have other options like proxies. McNeil hopes that the FCA will eventually see the value of regulated products in providing investor protection and the ability to trade cryptocurrencies.

Gold ETF

McNeil uses the example of the first gold ETF to explain how ETFs can make an asset more accessible. Before the gold ETF, people had to physically own gold, which was inconvenient for online businesses. The gold ETF allowed people to own gold on a shared and fractional basis, backed by good delivery bars.

In the same way, McNeil believes that the Bitcoin ETF will lead to a wider adoption of Bitcoin. This will make Bitcoin less speculative and more of a long-term investment and diversifier for portfolios. Although the price of Bitcoin will still have some ups and downs due to limited supply, McNeill predicts a steadier rise over time.

KOIN ETF

McNeill also suggests that Bitcoin is chosen by many people as a store of value and a hedge against the conventional financial system, just like gold. He believes that the technology behind Bitcoin makes it function well as a currency, and that criticisms of Bitcoin, such as money laundering, also apply to traditional currencies. As more people adopt Bitcoin, McNeil thinks central banks and governments will need to find ways to digitise their currencies.

In terms of accessing Bitcoin in the UK, McNeil mentions the KOIN ETF, which provides exposure to companies heavily influenced by the price of Bitcoin. He thinks this is a good option for retail investors and expects more ETFs for other cryptocurrencies like Ethereum in the future.

Overall, McNeill sees parallels between the gold ETF and the Bitcoin ETF, and believes that the wider adoption of Bitcoin will lead to a more stable and valuable asset class.

My approach to long-term investing involves utilizing Dollar-Cost Averaging (DCA), while I employ copy trading as a short-term investment tool. I predominantly opt for Bitget's copy trading platform due to its substantial selection of skilled and profitable traders to emulate.

Using the exchange’s copy trading has been one of my best decisions as a newbie. Transiting to real trading was cumbersome for me after I had mastered demo trading, however upon using Copy trading I've been able to stay profitable while I develop better in the field

You have said it all, a trading strategy will guide how you will enter and exit trades in the markets in a manner that enhances profitability and reduces risk exposure,  it can be based on technical analysis or fundamental analysis, I prefer technical anyways, which one do you normally use?

You obviously are a conservative type of trader and ya, it's good to always play safe and with current upgrade on Bitget copy trading we could see more improvement in terms of trading experience particularly as selecting Elite traders will be hassle free.

Can't say we actually understand what was about happening in the market when etf entered the market but the plot is getting thicker atm. However options are readily available as to where and how to navigate the present market having seen the potentials of bot trading and copy trading

Well on a personal note, I haven't consider bot or copy trading as part of my short term strategy coz I learnt it also carry some risk if an investor isn't able to find the right elite trader to follow, perhaps I will consider it when the system can use technology to identify and suggest good elite traders investors can copy....for now, am still strictly using the shark fin product and it has been quite good.

I love your trading sentiment and risk management idea thou is good to try out new features in the industry provided it will increase your portfolio and help to diversify your asset and boost trading experience. With bitget now upgraded copy trading by giving users the ability to have a separate account for futures copy trading and other added features that aim to simplify trading experience and increase chance of being profitable. I think is time to diversify.

To add to the points you've made so far particularly in the area of using earn products, investors can also utilise flexible savings as this will help them earn some daily APR % on any products they subscribe to. I use this on Bitget.

Talking of APR, I think it would be a good one if it's a decent one cos it's one good way to earn passively imho.

    • Crypto trading is a bit complicated when it comes to understanding the dynamics in profit making. Some people are more inclined to technical analysis which of course has been the widely used trading tool but some are more inclined to fundamentals but sticking to fundamentals alone could be highly risky in my own opinion even though crypto is also financial instrument that often respond to news updates.  A blend of the two could provide a safety net for traders in minimizing losses compared to potential profit. The above case scenario is largely attributed to perp futures trading and other derivatives. TA and FA could also be very useful for spot trading but I feel timely listing of projects could largely determine one's profit from investing in a project. These may not be for all projects cos some are **** coins. This could be a personal perspective but I have noticed listing speed is also another important factor to consider along with project fundamentals when trading and if we are to include listing speed as a factor for choosing trade then it will affect our choice of trading platform cos some are more inclined to top cap projects while others are more inclined low cap gems.   My experience with ORDI has proven this trading skill rewarding. ORDI was first listed on Bitget before other exchange joined the listing party after it saw rapid adoption reflecting in it significant MCap growth. This chart should give us a glimpse of my experience with this strategy.
    • In a stunning display of market momentum, the PANDORA token, the first of its kind, has skyrocketed an astonishing 4872% from its introduction on February 2nd to February 7th. This remarkable performance has not only caught the attention of cryptocurrency enthusiasts but has also solidified PANDORA’s position as a groundbreaking asset in the digital currency landscape. Pandora's ERC-404 protocol revolutionizes the token landscape by seamlessly blending the qualities of ERC20 and ERC721 standards. This experimental mixed implementation enables persistent liquidity and non-fungibility for NFTs, unlocking a realm of possibilities previously unexplored. Adding to the excitement, Bitget Wallet is gearing up to introduce a specialized section dedicated to ERC-404 token market listings. This feature creates a hub for tokens that blend the best of both worlds—the liquidity of ERC-20s and the uniqueness of ERC-721 NFTs. I have come to believe that, the electrifying surge of PANDORA token and the innovative ERC-404 standard is not just a fleeting trend but a window into the future of cryptocurrency.
    • A significant turning point in the #PORTALxBitget collaboration is the listing of $PORTAL on Bitget through the Candybomb event, which opens up benefits and synergistic prospects like 1. Diversified Trading choices: Users now have access to a wide range of trading choices thanks to $PORTAL's listing on the exchange, including cutting-edge leveraged trading capabilities and spot trading. This gives customers the freedom to interact with $PORTAL in a way that suits their preferred level of risk and trading techniques. 2. Community Synergy: By uniting the exchange users and the pre-existing $PORTAL community, the Candybomb event stimulates community engagement. Through this synergy, a positive environment surrounding #PORTALxBitget may be developed, encouraging cooperation, information exchange, and sustained interest in the project. Could this recent collab stimulate the  stage for a fruitful and mutually beneficial relationship between #PORTAL and exchange.
