How are students trying to make money from cryptocurrency?

There are three main ways students try to make money from crypto

Buy and hold – cryptocurrency is bought at a price and held (riding the rollercoaster) until prices have risen enough to make a good return, it’s then sold and the student cashes out

Shorting – investing so profit will be made if the price falls, which is particularly risky because if the price goes up instead of down, you can lose more than you invested

Fast trading – frequently trading to take advantage of short-term price movements
