  1. With crypto trading, you are catching the start of a trend. Generally speaking, the start of a trend is a very good place to be. It presents a massive amount of opportunity. If it actually continues in that trend and everyone comes in later, it will be good.

  2. Similar to the Forex, it is a 24/7 market. It is tradable anytime of the day. The great thing about that is when you are on a night shift, you can still get involved in the crypto market during the mornings and afternoons.

  2. Prone to Hacking. The uncertainty could be either it has error with the technology or prone to Hacking and stealing.
