Anyone know why prices are so different on different platforms? For example, coin cap might show XRP at 2.50 but GateHub will show it at 1.88. Why such a big difference?

I think it may be due to the rate of change. It appears that when there is a rapid move, the exchanges cant keep up. Also, dependant on what currency you are viewing it in (£, $ or Euro) will have a discrepancy due to whatever exchange using whatever conversion rate or factor. I tend to look at a few exchanges to get a mean of the current price.

Iíve got a £50 punt via Coinbase on BTC - currently seeing £7 profit!

Donít think Iíll be doing anything exciting just yet, but does show if you have the balls / capital to invest with big ££ then you could see some decent rewards as some posters on here have!

Just want to say a big thanks to ajfoggy for starting this thread or I would never of known about this, I had heard about Bitcoin but never been interested in stocks and wouldn't have thought about doing anything about it. Made a small punt on XRP at 0.203 and its done very nicely, pity I didn't have the balls to put a decent sum in but as I had no clue about crypto I just put on a years worth of lottery money which I was not going to worry about losing if it went pear shaped.

Is there a recognised easiest/simplest and/or best way to start playing with this stuff? Seems a myriad of different ways.

One thing that I still haven't worked what went wrong on eToro but thankfully it was my virtual portfolio. I invested in the copyfund cryptofund, I invested $15520 on the 12th December and it was all doing well making a healthy profit but for some reason it was closed on 31st December with a value of only $5090, a loss of $10430. I really cant figure out why this happened as all cryptos were doing well at the time. I haven't contacted eToro about it as its virtual cash, but would of been gutted if it was real money. Anyone any idea what caused this?

I personally found eToro incredibly simple. Downloaded the app to my phone, created an account, deposited money and started trading. Was probably up and running in half an hour.

I didn't even look into the copy side of things that's possible on it - just carried out my own trades. You could try it with a virtual portfolio first.

Can I ask how you verified your ID?

They use some stupid method of taking a photo with your phones camera of your drivers licence or passport and it won't accept it it keeps failing to verify, seems common after a quick look on google. Any other site lets you use a scanner and send them a good scanned copy but not coinbase

I had problems with the photo verification did it from my computer using an attach photo option and from the phone. Finally worked using the phone.

Yes, stop loss must have been triggered but I can't understand why as all the cryptos were doing well and the fund is spread across them all. No way had the fund value dropped by two thirds.

Here is a screenshot of the history showing some of the losses on the fund, shows XRP at under 20 cents, Bitcoin at 4286 and Bitcoin Cash as worth nothing. As I said its only virtual cash but still worry's me that something similar could happen to real money.

Etoro have suspended stop losses now, so should be no danger of this happening with real money. I had mine down to minimum anyway, after I had an xrp trade @0.31 closed at 65% profit by a trailing stop loss. My mistake and not a good one to make.

Asian markets have a similar pattern but we are asleep then. Basically, a bunch of people wake up, see large rises and choose to bank some of that by selling.

This is only based on three weeks of watching including a quiet holiday period, but just thought it worth mentioning.

Right on cue, European selling has wiped 15/20% of my profits out in the last half hour
hopefully they will jump back up again soon.
