We’ll go over some of the most common mistakes you can find people have made in crypto news today. We hope that seeing others have made will allow you to avoid making them yourself and help with any crypto endeavors you may undertake.

  1. Investing more than you can afford to lose

It is important to remember that each investment carries risks and that even the most experienced investors will lose money sometimes. This is why you should not invest everything you can or more than you can afford to lose even if you are confident of profit, as that unnecessary risk will rarely pay off. Instead, invest what you can and either reap the benefits of a correct choice or if you make a mistake, it will be one that your wallet will be able to tank.

  1. Investing in low-value coins

Just because a coin’s price is low doesn’t mean it is a good investment. “But it can only go up” doesn’t hold up well as not only is that never true, but it is essential to carefully look into cheap coins as they could potentially be fraudulent. Investing in cheap coins is not always a bad idea, but it requires more research to make sure you are making a good choice.

  1. Fear Of Missing Out (FOMO)

FOMO occurs in the crypto world usually when a coin you have not purchased jumps in price and you feel the need to buy into it despite it possibly being a bad moment, or perhaps the need to sell a token at any sudden drop in price due to the fear of it dropping further and losing profit. Make a set of guidelines for yourself for trading and follow them. Do not let FOMO drag you into bad financial decisions.

  1. Seeing peak prices and selling

Experienced investors recommend not to sell immediately when a token rises in price as it is most of the time, not the max it will reach. For example, many sold BTC or ETH when it jumped several times in price and ended up being extremely disappointed with themselves when it jumped in price even more soon after. While this doesn’t mean that selling at a peak is always wrong, it is essential to reconsider and see if there is more growth, and the answer is often yes.

  1. Not gauging the situation on your own and only listening to others.

While it may seem ironic that a guide would tell you, “Make your own choices and don’t always listen to others,” it is essential to remember that your situation regarding crypto is yours alone. Only you can genuinely conclude the best financial decision you can make. Listening to experts is good, but don’t do so blindly. Try to understand why they recommend what they do to see if it is genuinely the best choice for you.


We hope that this guide helps you avoid some of the most common and dangerous mistakes people make when initially beginning to trade cryptocurrencies. While you will inevitably make mistakes, this guide will hopefully mean that those mistakes will be smaller ones and not something large and potentially hazardous.

Best of luck with all the crypto trading opportunities you take, and we hope you end up making big bucks with all of these tips and warnings in mind.
