If you are a new cryptocurrency investor you probably started investing through large exchanges like Coinbase or any other local currency exchange which allows you to purchase crypto with your Fiat either would be US dollars euros or any other currencies.
However, they’re only going to have a limited number of altcoins alternative coins that you can trade. For example in Coinbase you can see they only have Bitcoin, Bitcoin cash Ethereum and Litecoin, these are the large-cap coins. So even though it’s a good place to start you may have better opportunities on investing in old coins where the percentage gains may be a lot larger however there’s more risk.
Bittrex exchange is a US-based cryptocurrency exchange headquartered in Seattle founded in the year 2013. They are one of the largest Cryptocurrency exchanges in the world.
