Last year we saw astronomical growth with remarkable gains from most major coins. Decentralized finance ignited a passion for yield farming and earning an attractive passive income on crypto assets, as well as enabling an entire ecosystem to go through a change of traditional finance.

If the crypto space is to continue to grow and attract and retain the interest of institutional traders, advanced risk-management tools that maximize gains for investors are required.

Knowing The Type of Risk:

● Credit Risk

Risk affecting crypto projects, mostly attributes to theft and fraud in crypto markets.


● Legal Risk

Refer to the risk of negative probability events occurring with respect to regulatory rules such as ban of cryptocurrency in specific regions. 


● Liquidity Risk

Risk in crypto trading of inability to easily exit a position to convert an entire position, in order to be on the “safer side”.


● Market Risk

Market risk refers to the chance of coin prices moving up or down contrary to your desire in an open position.


● Operational Risk

Operational risk is the chance that a trader is unable to trade, deposit, or even withdraw money from an exchange or in their crypto wallets.

Risk Management For Cryptocurrency Traders

There are many strategies out there posted by experts in the business, financial consultant, and other researchers a lot lately on how to manage your margin or portfolio wisely. But the ultimate rule for trading is:

“Do not risk more than you can afford to lose”.

It can be broadly categorized into four: Risk/reward ratio, stop loss & take profit, position sizing, and rebalancing portfolio.

▸ Risk/Reward Ratio 

In trading it is recommended to not trade under the ratio of 1:1 and should be starting from 1:1.5. This formula, R = (Target Price – Entry Price) / (Entry Price – Stop Loss), will enable you to know when to enter and when it is unprofitable.


▸ Stop Loss & Take Profit

Stop losses is an execution which closes an open position when a price decreases to a specific alignment. Saving you from trading in unprofitable deals. Taking Profits lets you get out of the trade before the market can turn against you.


▸ Position Sizing

Is where you position your margin of portfolio by dictating the possibility of coins or tokens that are willing to be bought by traders. It is wise to never invest all of your money in one place. The volatility of the cryptocurrency market means that any trade, even a seemingly perfect trade, can collapse and result in a significant loss. There are strategies involved. Read more.


▸ Rebalancing Portfolio

The process of realigning the weightings of an asset portfolio is known as rebalancing. Rebalancing entails buying or selling assets in a portfolio on a regular basis in order to maintain the original or desired level of asset allocation or risk.



Managing At Your own Risk

The temptation of buy and hold is one of the strategies newcomers will fall to use. Where you invest in a coin and leave the coin untouchable for an extent of a period. This passive strategy is often the simplest way and is associated with less risk. 

However, this approach will never allow you to profit significantly and retain you from exploring fun in crypto experience. Take risk, manage your portfolio, and we will see you next for our upcoming strategy that will apply to help us understand more during the decentralized fund management.
