Should You Invest in Forex Trading, Bitcoin Mining, And Cryptocurrency?

If you’re asking me, Shitanshu, should I invest in cryptocurrency or should I get into forex trading?

The simple answer is you shouldn’t. Because when you ask me this question it means, chances are you don’t know enough about them.

Maybe you see it on social media, or your friends told you about this, or you hear somebody making some money doing this.

And you thought, “It’s a good idea.”. The problem is you think of forex trading or even cryptocurrency. They’re not a business. They are just investments.

Forex Trading

So, in case you don’t know what forex trading is. It is in simple terms you buy currency at a certain rate, and hopefully, you buy low. 

And you sell currency at a certain rate. Hopefully, you sell it high, right?

That’s all that is. You buy low and sell high. That’s how you make money in forex trading.

For Example – Say you have a lot of revenue coming in, in U.S. dollars.

Then, you would see when is a good time to hold on to a certain amount of dollars of U.S. or, a certain time you know that, hey, it’s gonna go down probably.

Then, you are gonna sell some U.S. and convert it into Canadian dollars. So that, to pay for the company expense and all of that stuff.

Forex trading offers high liquidity, flexibility, and the potential for profit in both rising and falling markets. However, it requires a deep understanding of market dynamics, technical analysis, and economic factors that influence currency values.

Bitcoin Mining

Bitcoin mining is the process of validating transactions and adding them to the blockchain network. Miners solve complex mathematical problems using specialized hardware to mine new bitcoins. As a miner, you receive newly minted bitcoins as a reward. Bitcoin mining requires significant computing power, electricity, and technical expertise. It can be profitable, but the initial investment in equipment and ongoing operational costs must be considered.


Cryptocurrencies are digital or virtual currencies that use cryptography for security. Bitcoin is the most well-known cryptocurrency, but there are thousands of others available. Cryptocurrencies offer the potential for high returns, but their prices can be highly volatile. Investing in cryptocurrencies requires careful research, understanding of the underlying technology, and knowledge of market trends.

Factors to Consider

Before investing in forex trading, bitcoin mining, or cryptocurrencies, consider the following factors:

Risk Tolerance: Assess your risk tolerance as these investments can be highly volatile and subject to significant price fluctuations.

Market Knowledge: Gain a deep understanding of the respective markets. Educate yourself on forex trading strategies, bitcoin mining processes, and cryptocurrency fundamentals. You should go through Bitocoin News on daily basis.

Financial Situation: Evaluate your financial situation and investment goals. Determine the amount of capital you are willing to invest and the potential impact on your overall financial well-being.

Time Commitment: Consider the time commitment required for each investment option. Forex trading and actively managing a bitcoin mining operation can demand significant time and effort.

Regulatory Environment: Stay informed about the regulatory landscape surrounding forex trading and cryptocurrencies in your jurisdiction. Understand the legal and tax implications of these investments.

Here by forex trading or by cryptocurrenices, You are trying to utilize the capital more efficiently.

When it comes to money there are three things you need to know.

  • Making Money
  • Keeping Money
  • Multiplying Money

A lot of you guys, you’re trying to multiply. You’ve got nothing to multiply!

You’ve got a couple of money may be 10K, 20K, or 50K. That is nothing!

It’s not enough to multiply. You’re not going to become wealthy that way.

The very first thing that you have to do is, focus on making it. Maximizing your income.

When you maximize your income, assuming you don’t just blow it all, like an idiot, and you keep most of it. Not to be frugal, but you keep it, you accumulate it so that you could invest.

Now you can invest in something that is sustainable. Something that will provide you with a good return.

But, first, you need to develop what I call a ‘high-income skill’.

You need to have a skill set that can earn you, continuous, money – Income.

If you think about it, even cryptocurrency. So, you buy a little bit of bitcoin, you buy a little bit of cryptocurrency? So what?

You still can’t pay the bills. You still can’t put food on the table. You need a continuous income stream, that allows you to do that.

You need the ability to earn. To earn money on a regular basis. To pay for your bills.

Otherwise, you’re trying to speculate. See, the most dangerous thing is this If you go into something, and you’re speculating, and you think to yourself, “This is a business.”…

It’s not a business. At best, at best, it’s speculation. I don’t agree, and it’s not what I invest in.

So, the most dangerous thing you can do is, go into speculation, thinking it’s gonna be an investment.

Remember speculation is not a business. It is a virtual game.

Speculation never generates continuous income flow.

Where your money grows virtually, but it does not help you. It is like a fun thing. It’s just entertainment.  

So, don’t count speculation as making money. You shouldn’t count on that to make money. 

The only thing you count on making money is you. See, real estate doesn’t make me money. The stock market doesn’t make me money. Business doesn’t make me money. I make me money.

Those investments work because I work. Your investment would work only if you work.

The only thing, the only person to count on to make you money, to make you successful? It is you. Learn to think independently.

Don’t Speculate.
