7 Things You Must Do Before Investing In Any Cryptocurrency

How to Evaluate a Cryptocurrency

Step 1: Check the Market Listing

The first step is to look up the project on a cryptocurrency aggregator. The two largest cryptocurrency aggregators are CoinMarketCap and Coingecko. CMC is the most well-known while CoinGecko is known to more smaller-cap projects.

These sites provide a high-level overview of the project: trading history, crypto ranking, a brief description of the project as well as the primary links to the project website and the project’s social media links.

Project Ranking:

The project ranking provides a quick assessment of where the project ranks when compared to all other cryptocurrencies. In July 2022, the total number of cryptocurrencies was 20,268. It’s important to note that not every cryptocurrency is functional or worthwhile. When “dead” cryptos are taken out of the equation, there are only about 10,953 that are still in use. (which is determined by the project’s market capitalization) is a good initial indicator of where the project currently stands.

Depending on your investment style and preferences, you may only be interested in the top 100 ranked projects, which generally offer the least risk. However, if you are looking for those lesser-known ‘gems’ (as we refer to those upcoming projects) with massive growth potential, then you will likely want to be looking for those projects ranking in the 1,000s and above. Projects ranked 5,000s and higher are generally considered highly risky projects and in most cases should be avoided because they have a higher tendency of doing a rug pull.

Market Cap :

The project ranking is determined by the Market Cap and it is calculated by multiplying the current price of the coin/token with the total number of coins/tokens in circulation. In general, the higher the value of the market cap (the higher the ranking) the less volatile and safer the investment (relatively speaking of course).

Price History:

Taking a quick look at the daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly trading history will provide a high-level overview of the price and performance of the project, and trends, and also highlight any potential issues.

Trading Volume & Liquidity:

The trading volume is how much is bought and sold over some time and is a very important metric. Liquidity is a measure of how easily a crypto asset can be bought or sold and this is important as it will allow you to buy and sell when you want, especially when considering low-volume projects where you may not be able to sell out when you want.

A low trading volume of a medium-cap project can also be an indicator of a project which has been abandoned, lacks a real-world use case, or small community and something to watch out for.

Circulating Supply vs Total Supply:

It is also important to distinguish between the circulating supply and the total supply of a project. The circulating supply is the number of coins/tokens which are in actual circulation while the total supply is a fixed value of the total number of coins/tokens that can ever exist.

Bitcoin offers a good reference point when considering the circulating supply and total supply of a project. For Bitcoin, there are only 21 million in total supply while there are about 19 million currently in circulation.

When compared to a project like XRP, which has a total supply of 100 billion and a circulating supply of around 47 billion, the scarcity of Bitcoin coins can easily be seen (thus the higher value for one Bitcoin). Also, in cases where the total supply is of many magnitudes larger, a large influx in the circulating supply can quickly debase the price.

The Price:

While projects which are traded at less than a penny may seem like a good opportunity at first glance, the total supply and circulating supply need to be taken into consideration.

Going back to Bitcoin as an example, with only 21 million in total supply, it has a much lower total supply than many other cryptocurrencies. Using XRP as a comparative example, it has a total supply of 100 billion and a trading price of less than $1.

It’s important to realize that low-priced cryptocurrencies have the psychological effect of seeming like a potentially good deal, but this can only be determined after taking into account the circulating and total supply. Some people look at eye project with the eye of it being the next bitcoin. Doing more than 100x at their current price, but can only be possible when the total supply is not too bogus.

Be wary of projects with an extremely large total supply, which in turn results in a very low market price.

Step 2: Visit the Project Website:

If the initial review of the project details on the cryptocurrency aggregator site looks positive, then the next step would be to check out the project website.

Visiting a project’s official website is a must!

There is no excuse for a poorly developed website. Today it is very easy and relatively inexpensive to develop a clean and functional website. The project website should be well put together, functional and openly share details about the project, the people behind it, the roadmap, and the investors (if applicable).

If the website is of poor quality, has spelling mistakes, is reluctant to disclose to the team members, or even worse is a copy-and-paste of a prior fork, then these are all causes for concern and should be avoided.

The Team (developers, executives, partners, advisors):

For most projects, especially newer projects it is the team and developers involved in the project who are the most valuable assets. It’s the credibility and experience of the team behind the project which will have a direct result in the success or failure of the project. It’s for this reason, a current example of such project is the Aptos. Although they have been actively supported by finance which is a bog name in the industry, but there are still a lot of fishy details, owing to the huge price drop when the coin was launched. It was later found out that the team had staked 80% of the token before they launched and we’re the major retailers when they launched.

When assessing the team, determine the prior experience in the market and prior projects. Is this their first project or do they have a solid history of developing successful projects in this market?

Unfortunately, many smaller projects have been known to fake their team (using AI-generated photos), so it isn’t enough to take at ‘face’ value what the website says. If LinkedIn or other social profiles of the team is provided, it’s always prudent to follow up and verify their authenticity.

When assessing the team, it’s also important to take into account the leadership (executives). Projects with partnerships with well-known firms are also a good sign, but as with most information on the website, verify where possible.

The Road Map & Vision:

As an investor, you are looking into the future potential for the project and the road map and vision are also critical components of the assessment.

A solid project will have a strong and well-defined vision with a roadmap and dates attached providing details for the development at each stage. It goes with the saying, without a clear vision and roadmap, the future success of the project is in doubt. Investing in something you don’t know is just gambling.


Does the project already have investors and if so, who are they? Projects which have already been invested in by well-known investment firms are an excellent sign. These firms often specialize in specific niche markets and if they have already invested, chances are they have also done their due diligence and believe in the project.

Step 3: Check Social Media Profiles

If everything looks good at this point, the next step is to check the social media profiles. This step will take a bit more time to assess.


The first social media site to visit is the project’s Twitter account. Twitter is a quick method to determine how socially active the project is and the most recent tweets. It’s also good to note the interaction within the tweets. The number of Twitter followers is another important metric to be aware of. Twitter is currently like the lead platform for announcement of crypto projects.

7 Things You Must Do Before Investing In Any Cryptocurrency 2

You Must Check For The Community Behind A Token Before Investing In Any Cryptocurrency

Telegram / Discord

Telegram and Discord are chat groups that can offer even greater insight into the project, the team, and the community. The follower count is a good indicator to look for. Within chat groups, take some time to read through the posts and get a feel for the type of people interested and involved. Are their questions being answered? Groups that overly engage in psychological tactics such as inducing FOMO should be considered red flags. Such FOMO could be used to instigate a rug pull, and you sure don’t want to be part of that.


Reddit is an open community where everyone can share his/views about a particular subject. Oftentimes Reddit will have non-project sponsored groups and or discussion subreddits about the project and the opinions in this community is usually free from fear or favour. With the upvoting system employed by Reddit, it is a great source for ‘street knowledge of what may not otherwise be publicly available.

Things to look for on Reddit include, how active is the community. How many followers are on the subreddit? Does the team offer AMAs (ask me anything)? Is the team helpful in sharing information about the project?

If the coin has potential, there is almost always a Reddit discussion about it. If Reddit isn’t yet talking about it, you are either early to the party or it’s yet another potential red flag.

Step 4: Assess the Community

It’s likely been said many times and worth saying again — No community, no future. It is the community supporting the project which makes it successful! The LUNC and Terra community showed their power in the recent burning of token and we all saw how CZ was coerced into agreeing to their demands.

You should not underestimated the importance of the community. If you are familiar with either Doge or Shibu, it was the community that brought these projects to great heights. The enthusiasm and size of the community play a large role in the initial and continued success of the project.

Look for cryptocurrencies with strong, active communities. This is a good sign that there is genuine interest and belief in the project. Again, it’s worth noting that Reddit and twitter are great places to start researching the community and gaining ‘street knowledge’ not otherwise available anywhere else.

Step 5: Read the White Paper

A white paper is a document created by a crypto project that provides investors with technical information about the project, including the concept, the roadmap as well as how the project plans to grow and succeed.

A project’s white paper can provide insight into the inner workings of the project. Although many white papers may be highly technical, it is an important data point for assessing the quality of the project and the team behind it.

If there is no White Paper, generally this is a red flag. Also, White Papers with spelling mistakes, unnecessary technicalities or lacking basic grammar and punctuation are red flags. Some scam projects use AI generated whitepapers, which make them very bogus and unreal when reading.

You Must Check For The utility and use case Behind A Token Before Investing In Any Cryptocurrency

Does the coin solve a major problem, or compliment a block chain that does


Step 6: Understand the Utility & Use Case Of The Project

For the long-term viability of a project, it needs to have a well-defined and clear use case. Does the project solve an important problem? If you are looking to invest in this project for the long term, then the answer needs to be a definitive YES.

A project’s success is directly related to something which its users will need (or want). While gaming and metaverse projects may not at first glance solve an important problem, they do offer something people want. No matter the niche or project, it must be able to solve an issue or compliment where another block chain has missed out.

When assessing the utility or use case of a project, it’s important to look at both the current demand and potential future demand. Does the potential future demand include worldwide adoption or is it only local? If you are not able to determine the reasons or motivations for significant future demand, then then it’s likely not a project you will want to hold for the long term.

Step 7: Scam Checks

Unfortunately, there are many scams within crypto and these scams are becoming increasingly more sophisticated, such as malicious contracts and rug pulls which are very difficult to detect for the average investor.

To help protect against these potential scams as well as provide additional (technical) analysis of the project, many free online tools can help

Some of the tools I use include:


Provides token information, honeypot check, liquidity check,and audit information. Also uses data collected from BSCheckEUu, &


Provides overall risk assessment, dev wallet information, token owner, and top holder information → BSCheckEUu


This offers overall assessment of smart contracts and identifies potential rugs. Works for projects built BSC, FTM, and POLY contracts blockchains.→

In Conclusion

These are generic 7-step process for evaluating any cryptocurrency and offers a starting point for those looking to DYOR. However, it needs to be noted that specific niche markets within the crypto space will require slightly different and more specialized assessment approaches, as would be the case in gaming or Defii projects.

Also for people who are into day trading, or scrap trading, you simple cannot be going through all of these steps because of just one trade. It is important that you trade on a platform with good trading metrics options like Binance.

96504373 1 jpg

With the growing popularity of cryptocurrencies, trading bots have become increasingly popular among investors looking to maximize their profits and minimize their risks. In this fast-paced and volatile market, trading bots can help traders stay ahead of the curve and make informed decisions in real-time.

Crypto trading bots

Trading bots provide crypto trading signals

What are trading bot

A trading bot is a software program that is designed to to buy or sell or make trade on behalf of a human. The trading bots are programmed by a set of data and they make decisions involving various market trends from these data. They use statistical model and machine learning to analyze market data and provide trading signals from previous trends.

Trading with bots has continued to gain more attention due to their usefulness in the market they can make transaction at a faster rate and without emotional bias.

They can pretty much can execute transaction at a slated price. The bots can make transaction at a faster rate and without emotional bias compared to humans who allow their emotions to make the best of them mostly during trade analysis.

Why should you consider trading with bot

Automation of trades has gotten more important because the cryptocurrencies market is it 24 hours 7 Days market that has no shutting down or weekend break. It is very difficult for a human being to be monitoring the market all through this period. The bots can analyze the market for a longer period of time and make decisions from this analysis compared to humans who have a very short span of concentration and focus for the market and the trading bot make decisions based on analysis and with emotional bias, since a computer program has no sense of emotion.

Creating a trading strategy with a trading bot

Building a trading strategy with a trading bot

Bot trading Strategies

Trading with bot can be programmed to work on various marketing strategies. Some trading bots are designed to just buy and hold while some are designed to work in various scrapping modes (small trading time frames) and different time frames why some are designed to work on various market positions. ie, the market conditions can make the bots to adjust leverage or adjust positions to reduce losses or increase profits.

How crypto trading bots work

The Way Trading bots work is just to analyze market data and market statistics to make future predictions of the direction of movement of the coin or cryptocurrency. When the bot executes such predictions and the predictions turns out to be true, the owner makes profit but if such predictions fail and the trade goes against the bots then the trader will lose a substantial amount of money depending on how much he or she invested in that trade.

The data and parameter that the trading bot assess or make use of in making market analysis are includes technical analysis tools such as MACD and RSI and liquidity, support and resistance level.

Some trading bot also analyse financial, market and economic data to assess the value of a crypto assets and the potential or future value of such assets.

There are also bots which are designed to do copy trading. These bots  just copy the trades of a specific experienced  trader or a selected trader and use this to execute the same positions for it’s own trades.

Some components of Trading bot

A trading bot is made to work like an artificial intelligence machine that makes decision in place of a human Factor.

Trading bots it has several components, about six of them which are listed below;

Data feed

The first components of a trading both is a data feed, the data field is where the bot gets all it’s market data to analyse and make decision from or structure it and make a future trading signal or future predictions from. The market that are usually scrapped for trading data of any token analysis includes, tradingview, mt4 and mt5.

Trading algorithm

The next one is the trading algorithm the trading algorithm is like the Api itself that makes mathematical calculation based on the inference from the market data to predict the future trading signal of the market or the future movement of the market.

Cryptocurrency taxation

Trading bot calculations and miscalculation

Risk management

The risk management factor involves the features that allow the trading bots to determine how much it should use to place a trade, the leverage, the margin the stop-loss, your entry points and your time frame and targeted profits.

Execution platform

An execution platform is also needed, the execution platform is the place in which you deployed the trading bot. It can be a crypto exchange app, a trading platform like meta4 or meta5 or any of the stock exchange or brokerage market.

Monitoring and optimization

Before the trading both can be deployed into a real market,  it has to back tested and optimise and this process is called back testing and optimisation. It is the process in which you use a demo funds or demon funded account on the trading bot to see how well it performs or it will perform in the real market.

The monitoring and reporting dashboard gives helps you track the performance of the trading bot overtime and make the necessary adjustments which you have to do further profits.

Advantages Of Trading Bots

Accurate for analysis

Trading bots are accurate for analyzing market data, and has faster speed for such analysis, market data are quite cumbersome to get around with, but it is not so for a trading bot which can simplify the trades into maths and provide you with the numbers next to come in form of trading signals.

Zero emotion in predicting crypto signals

Most of the time, the crypto market do get the most of traders because they get at the top of their emotions to make profits and make huge gains from a particular trade but this is an impossible scenario with trading bots. As a robot it lacks the ability to feel or be controlled by emotions.  Trading can be quite manipulative, and most often, humans do fall for this manipulations and that differentiate bots from them since they don’t base their analysis on emotions.

24/7 Analysis

Market analysis requires constant monitoring especially for scrap trading or trading at a smaller time frames and it is improbable for a human being to monitor his trade for 24hours, 7days a week, but that is not the problem for a trading bot which can constantly and consistently monitor your trade for you even when you are asleep and place the trade on your behalf when it sees a good entry or exit points.

Optimization and fine tuning

Trading Bots can also be optimised for fast or slow profit and the timeframe for which you want the trade to run can be optimised. Your risk management also can easily be optimised from the trading boots so it is easily optimizable for the trader to suits whichever pattern or form of trade you want to place.

Disadvantages of a trading bot

Trading with boots also had some disadvantages some of which are;

Market trading with bot

Bull and bear market can confuse a trading bot

Over-reliance on historical data

over-reliance on historical data and assumptions. Crypto currencies are very volatile and in some cases they form patterns which do not conform to anynof the previous pattern or trend of the cryptocurrencies. Cryptocurrency repeat history but most of the time it does not follow any pattern of history it’s just create a new pattern.

When such a volatility or unpredictable events formed, the bots loses focus because it is being faced with a problem which it is not trained on. The bot can therefore make decisions that will lead to loss of money.

Dependence on mathematical model and technology

Another one of the disadvantage of trading boots is the over dependence on technology and mathematical models or machine learning when such technology or models fails, it lead to loss of money.

Parameters to consider when choosing a trading bot

One of the most important factors to consider when choosing a trading bot is the ability of the trading bot to be paired with you trading platform. When you chose a trading bot that cannot work on your trading platform you can easily get stranded of what to do next with it.

Another important factor to consider when choosing a trading bot is the ability for you to fine-tune it to your own taste. Most trading bot have limited parameters to reconfigure for your own specific trading so you have to be sure of the parameters in the bots that can be reconfigured.

Several crypto exchange platforms have taken a step forward to create their own trading bot for Traders, all you just have to do is buy the bot and you be able to access the trading bots for a limited amount of time depending on your subscription plan.


We can now see that while trading bot are very good for trading they also have their downside and they are not good enough to beat the expertise of a human being behind a good trading strategy.

Trading bots are awesome for analyzing chat and market trends but for making decisions especially when the trade can be manipulated by external factors it is best that a human being be behind to control the bot.

Mining equipment in Nigeria is significantly cheaper to run than in other countries because the average cost of power in Nigeria is one of the lowest in the world. As a result, miner profits rise, making this a desirable option for anyone considering a career in mining.

Aside from that, alternative fuel used to power up most rigs such as biofuel and diesel are cheap in the country.

Growing Adoption Of Cryptocurrencies

There are few countries as advanced as Nigeria when it comes to the number of people exposed to the use of cryptocurrency. Increasing numbers of Nigerians, a country with a large and growing youth population and a high percentage of technological literate youths, are considering using virtual currencies as a means of online investment and commerce.

Bitcoin miners can diversify their income streams by earning a passive income while also generating new income. As the price of electricity continues to drop and more and more people begin using cryptocurrencies, crypto mining has become an attractive option for those in need of a supplementary income.

Some Cons Of Cryptocurrency Mining in Nigeria

Although cryptocurrency mining in Nigeria has the potential to bring about a number of advantages, there are also a number of unanticipated disadvantages that must be considered.

Here are a few things to consider:

Power outages

Nigerians pay some of the world’s lowest rates for electricity, but the country routinely experiences blackouts and voltage fluctuations. This could lead to unplanned downtime of mining equipment and a loss of revenue.

Availability of hardware

Mining cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum requires specialist hardware like ASIC miners, which may be difficult to come by in Nigeria. This might make mining in the country challenging. Thus, it might be a more challenging and costly task to enter the mining industry.

Regulatory Uncertainty

Miners and investors may face regulatory ambiguity in Nigeria due to the country’s lack of an established regulatory framework for cryptocurrencies. The lack of oversight could make it challenging for mining companies to secure financing and insurance.

Greenhouse emissions problems

Cryptocurrency mining consumes a great deal of power, which could have negative effects on the natural world. Since a large amount of Nigeria’s electrical infrastructure is driven by fossil fuels, mining may contribute to greenhouse gas emissions and other environmental problems in the country.

While there are undeniably benefits to bitcoin mining in Nigeria, it is important to consider the aforementioned potential negatives before getting started. Long-term success in mining may be possible for people who take the time to learn about the hazards they confront and implement measures to lessen those effects.
