Yep its a natural course of events with the rising price of BTC on some exchanges $980 USD which is great , but as it was noted the value of Burst is increasing and this is the bit that is more interesting to me , the satoshi price is good , but the market cap rise is the nuts and bolts of it in the end the real world value !!
@IceBurst i did the math and you did quite well. Congrats.
Few things i'd like to mention though. If one does manual trading, such results are very much possible provided that your order size doesn't exceed 0.5 BTC a pop . The moment your order size goes to say 2-5 BTC, you will have a much harder time on certain coins, and you have to focus more on the high volume ones. That again depends on your trading strategy... some go for a 2% profit and get out, some 20% and some go for the full 100% if possible.
That's what i love and hate about trading. Too much flexibility :)
At the end of the day, what really matters is that we pull a profit with least amount of effort needed.
Anyone who is just looking at @IceBurst 's portfolio and says to themselves '' why is he bragging about 30 bucks'' , well, he's not. It was an example. AAAANNNNDDD , even though it's say 30 bucks worth in profit, he focused his holdings on 4 coins he believes in. If he's right on them in the long term, that 30 bucks will be worth 300 or even more. How's that for trading for fun?
People often fail to realize that even a small amount now can make a huge difference over time. So if you find yourself in the situation of only having made a few bucks on a small budget and feel like letting it go, just remember ''get rich quick'' is a mirage. The only real earners are the patient ones. One dollar today + 1 next month adds up faster than you think, and if you don't believe me, look up ''compounding interest'' on google and even youtube (they have some nice videos on the matter).
So, in conclusion @IceBurst , daddy's proud , and i know you were just having fun with trading this but the fact that you value even these amounts and are proud to present them shows me you're a long term thinker. I like that.
Check spam folders too for the confirmation email might be directed there. In case you still haven't received your Bursts then ask support they are willing to help. They are very accommodating actually.
Since most of us do not know all the exchanges that deal with Burst, it will be of great help if we could look into a full list of them.
This is only partially an answer to your question, but it is still important for newbies to know.
In the crypto world, it is common to look for an [ANN] page on the forum Bitcointalk, in order to grasp the 'essence' of a crypto currency, and also to for example find out which exchanges the coin is listed on. Any respectable coin will try to keep the OP (original/first post) updated with any important information (such as info about exchanges). Also, you can often find out a lot about a coin and its community by reading the posts in that forum.
I thought we had stabilized yesterday afternoon about 130 Satoshi ea. but it appears maybe not, we are continuing to see a slight downward movement which indicates that the floor has not been found and stabilized. The good news is the movements are becoming smaller I expect the floor to stay above 100 Satoshi.
Just my 2 cents,
I think it's consolidating now. We're back to 130ish at the moment. I hope it stays afloat 120
