When Bitcoin was at its’ high point, I began to conduct my research to see what the craze was all about. At this time, I thought, it was already too late to ride the wave. My thought was, can there by any long-term holding benefit? I created a Coinbase account and linked my bank account - I was ready. My plan was to purchase a very small amount to hold for a few months - just to learn more about cryptocurrency trading and the Coinbase application.
