Bitcoin exchange (BTC) – the investor can set up an anonymous cryptocurrency account to buy and hold cryptocurrency through the BTC exchange. However, this carries two types of threat. First, when we make transactions on the cryptocurrency exchange, our funds are not on our account, but on the exchange account. Unfortunately, the short history of cryptocurrencies already knows spectacular examples of crypto exchanges that have been closed overnight, disappearing along with investor funds. There are also examples of cryptocurrency exchanges that have been robbed by hackers. Secondly, if we lose our login and password to the account or someone steals them from us, we will lose our cryptocurrencies irrevocably, without the possibility of applying for help. There is no place where we could ask to recover lost data or stolen bitcoins.
A different method of making profits from cryptocurrencies is data encryption. To start making money on cryptocurrencies, you can also buy specialized information encryption equipment and receive remuneration in the form of bitcoins for your contribution to the IT system. However, this requires specialized knowledge in the field of programming and selection of advanced computer equipment, which is not the cheapest.
