With how volatile each cryptocurrency is, crypto-to-crypto trading pairs can be even more volatile and profitable.
During 2017, Ethereum rallied over 1900% against Bitcoin in just over 6 months. This may seem like it implies poor BTC performance, but on the USD trading pair, BTC rose by well over 2,000%.
At the same time, Ethereum surged 1900% on the ETHBTC pair. Ethereum, on the USD pair, rose over 18,000%.
Trading any of the peaks and troughs in between could lead to life-changing wealth. But things can just as easily turn south and lead to extreme losses if you aren’t careful.
