Over the years, it has become easier to trade Bitcoin in Nigeria. For the first time in history, people in Nigeria are not bound by the falling value of the naira. In order to gain as many benefits as possible from Bitcoin, several tips should be considered.

1. Manage Risks

One of the best Bitcoin tips relates to the risks of being a holder. There are a lot of scams online, especially in the COVID-19 period, during which more people have increased their digital footprints. There are a lot of tools available to use in order to avoid scams and cybercriminals who may be looking to steal your Bitcoin. The three Bs are important to consider: be quiet, be fast, and be on time. Always update the software on your phone and devices as frequently as you can. Never say too much about how much Bitcoin you own. You wouldn’t let someone know the amount of money in your bank account. This should be the same with Bitcoin.  

2. Have a Good Budget

If you fail to plan, you plan to fail. Without a good budget in order, you could really ruin your chances of implementing a good investment strategy for your Bitcoin portfolio. You have to establish a good plan to guide your investment choices as it regards to your Bitcoin portfolio. Ensure that you have access to good resources on price updates and other metrics affecting the price of Bitcoin. 

3. Learn from Professionals

Professional traders live, breath, and eat cryptocurrency. They spend countless hours every year trying to find new ways of making more profits from Bitcoin. Professional traders gain key insights from both their wins and losses. By following the guidance of professional traders, you can avoid making the same mistakes they make. However, no trader is right 100% all of the time. Sometimes, traders make major losses and bring down their followers with them too.

4. Stay Ahead of Trends

Trends come and go but those who are able to see themselves in the future win. Studying charts and comparing historic trends will give you an edge in trading Bitcoin. Without enough insight on charts, you may find yourself lacking the instinct needed to avoid major losses. 

5. Understand Global Events

Global events can have significant effects on the price of Bitcoin. For example, several central banks have waged silent wars on Bitcoin which can set the precedence for trends in other states. Global events such as the oil price wars and currency wars can suddenly change the price of Bitcoin.
