Now Bitcoin Cash's camp of big-block dissidents is about to divide once again. The schism pits the maintainers of the leading Bitcoin Cash implementation, called Bitcoin ABC, against Craig Wright. Wright is one of the most controversial figures in the bitcoin world. He has claimed to be bitcoin founder Satoshi Nakamoto, but his claim is doubted by a number of bitcoin insiders—Ethereum founder Vitalik Buterin has labeled Wright a "fraud."
These days, stocks in the US are regulated by the Securities and Exchange Commission, precisely, because in the olden days, there were many stocks issued that were much like bitcoin, marketed to unsophisticated investors as a get-rich-quick scheme. The very definition of this investor is: “Being more willing to buy something the more its price goes up.”

How risky is investing in bitcoin compared to other financial assets? If the belief in bitcoin evaporates, it will free-fall and should be avoided as an investment tool. Go into bitcoin if you can bear the downside, but do not buy looking to strike gold. If you are fine with losing all your capital and you are curious about bitcoin, and you believe that the demand for bitcoin is still going strong, then do it.
A number of proposals have been made to deal with transaction processing over the years, often focusing on increasing block size. Because the Bitcoin code is not managed by a central authority, changes to the code require buy-in from developers and miners. This consensus-driven approach can lead to proposals taking a long time to finalize. This has resulted in groups creating separate blockchain ledgers using new standards, called a fork. Several forks, such as Bitcoin XT and Bitcoin Unlimited, failed to be adopted by a wide audience. Bitcoin Cash, launched in August 2017, is another fork from Bitcoin Classic.

When thinking about how to invest in Bitcoin, you must always consider the cons of investing. The price of Bitcoin changes all the time. However, these aren’t just small changes. For example, after Bitcoin hit its highest price of $19,839 on the 17th December 2017, it dropped to $12,015 on the 22nd December. That’s a total loss of $7,824 in just 5 days!
From a risk-reward point of view, it won’t make sense for traders—even conservative or aggressive—to sell BCH/USD at this level. Prices are $34 from the main sell trigger line and support at $400. But, from previous BCH/USD trade plan, patience mean holding off until prices race below $400 or erupt above $600 in a break out trade confirming or nullifying break out pattern of early August. Either way, first targets will be $300 or $850.

Since very few countries in the world are working on regulation of Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency in general, these exchanges can be shut down. This happened in China sometime in September 2017. Exchanges are also at risk of getting hacked and you might lose your Bitcoin if you store it on an exchange. You can read about the biggest Bitcoin hacks here.
Bitcoin is often touted as an electronic currency that will change the world, but it is also a highly volatile type of financial asset. In fact, many governments don't recognize it as a currency at all. In spite of the many merchants now excepting bitcoin, a lot of the activity surrounding bitcoin comes from traders hoping to make money on fluctuations in its value.

This brings us back to the SEC's review of the Winklevoss twins' proposal to launch a bitcoin-based ETF. Such an ETF would have solved at least some of these problems. It would have made trading bitcoin much more liquid, and assuaged many investors' fears of potential theft. Viewed in this light, bitcoin's massive sell-off on the initial news of the rejection and subsequent rise on the appeal of the decision makes a lot of sense.
Finally, as everyone who held Bitcoins before the split received an equal amount of Bitcoin Cash tokens, some people voiced their concerns that the split was nothing but a money-making scheme. In fact, the hard fork did create a situation similar to a double-spending problem, as it made conducting two transactions from a single wallet using the same set of keys possible.
Bitcoin cash is a different story. Bitcoin cash was started by bitcoin miners and developers equally concerned with the future of the cryptocurrency, and its ability to scale effectively. These individuals had their reservations about the adoption of a segregated witness technology, though. They felt as though SegWit2x did not address the fundamental problem of scalability in a meaningful way, nor did it follow the roadmap initially outlined by Satoshi Nakamoto, the anonymous party that first proposed the blockchain technology behind cryptocurrency. Furthermore, the process of introducing SegWit2x as the road forward was anything but transparent, and there were concerns that its introduction undermined the decentralization and democratization of the currency.

Bitcoin Cash trades on digital currency exchanges including Bitstamp,[20] Coinbase,[21] Gemini,[22] Kraken,[23] and ShapeShift using the Bitcoin Cash name and the BCH ticker symbol for the cryptocurrency. A few other exchanges use the BCC ticker symbol, though BCC is commonly used for Bitconnect. On 26 March 2018, OKEx removed all Bitcoin Cash trading pairs except for BCH/BTC, BCH/ETH and BCH/USDT due to "inadequate liquidity".[6] As of May 2018, daily transaction numbers for Bitcoin Cash are about one-tenth of those of bitcoin.[6]

Finally, the unique way of buying and selling bitcoins not only contributes to its illiquid nature, but has also contributed to higher rates of fraud and theft through uninsured bitcoin exchanges. While these problems were far more prevalent in years past, it should still be mentioned that none of the bitcoin exchanges have yet established a long business track record.
See investing is one thing and living in India does offer ways to invest in Bitcoins through coinsecure but it’s price volatility and the way it is rising does ring alarm bells as it can go down by huge margins any time. What kind of an opinion you have on regulation of Bitcoins in India ? What kind of a future you see for Bitcoins in India especially after being a part of the Blockchain Summits?

That doesn't mean it's risk-free, though. Blockchain technology is an intriguing development that could disrupt a number of huge industries, but at the moment, it's also a fashionable word to throw around. Long Island Iced Tea, a beverage company, renamed itself Long Blockchain in late 2017, seemingly knowing that the word itself could cause a jump in stock. And for a brief moment, the stock actually did jump just because of that. Don't fall for tricks like that, stay vigilant and avoid cryptocurrency scams like these.
To secure each block of bitcoin transactions, bitcoin miners must use their computing power to solve a unique math problem provided by the bitcoin software. If a bitcoin miner can solve the math problem before any other bitcoin miner, they will win a “block reward” that consists of all the fees paid by each transaction included in their block, as well as newly generated bitcoin.

Some of the more notable cryptocurrencies, though, offer some things that bitcoin does not, making it harder to definitively call them a bitcoin copy. It's natural to be interested in them. Do your proper research, discuss with your financial advisor, and use your common sense -- don't put more of your money into these than you can afford. They're riskier than usual.
Notice that Craig Wright has made it clear that he is willing to “sacrifice” and even if it will cost him money, he shall channel everything they got to see BCHSV go live. That means, in the run-up, uncertainty reigns. As such capital could flow out of BCH further exerting pressure on the coin. In that case, depending on the exchange, traders should hold off trading aware that losses below $400 shall inevitably ignite sellers aiming at $300 or BCH all time lows.
Another possible attempt at investing in bitcoin's value without buying bitcoins is with bitcoin futures. Bitcoin futures allow you to essentially bet on the cryptocurrency's value in the future; if you think the price of bitcoin will go up in the future, you could buy a futures contract. Should your instinct be right, and the price goes up when the contract expires, you're owed an equal amount to the gains. Notable places that offer bitcoin futures contract are the Chicago Board Options Exchange, or CBOE, and financial market CME Group.
Many services nowadays offer their users to buy Bitcoins, but they may often turn out to be a scam. Such cryptocurrency exchanges may simply take your money and then disappear.
