Investing in cryptocurrencies seems to be something that everyone with over ten euro in the bank has been doing. Although, it’s not always so simple as, convert money to cryptocurrency, wait and be rich. It is far more complex than this and the values of these cryptocurrencies is rather unpredictable.
