Gate.io Beginners Trading Guide

The first thing most people do after they get a basic understanding of cryptocurrencies, is buy them. Which exchange is safer? What is cryptocurrency trading, fiat currency trading and leveraged trading? In this guide we will assist to answer these questions and help you get started with cryptocurrency investing.

What Is a Fiat Currency Trading

Fiat currency, short for "legal tender", refers to the currency that is created by a reserve bank of a specific country as their official currency . For newcomers in the cryptocurrency world, the best option would be converting fiat currency to USDT stable token. It is pegged to USD and is not prone to the volatility of most other cryptocurrencies.

What Is a Token Trading

At present, BTC, ETH, and USDT are some of the mainstream tokens circulating in the cryptocurrency market. Currency trading is to use these currencies to exchange for other digital currencies, such as USDT or Bitcoin for Dogecoin, etc.

What Is the Difference with Fiat Currency Trading

Token trading is more flexible and can be easily exchanged for several digital assets on the exchange, making it the most efficient channel for newbies to trade. Users can get a return on their investment by buying low - holding (waiting for the price of the token to rise) and selling high. Learn more
