What is the "GAS"?

GAS system explanation
First of all, you need to understand that Gas is an internal thing.
Gas can not be purchased.
System using gas to calculate the price of the transaction (in Ether) and ultimately limit the EVM (Ethereum Vitrual Machine).

Ethereum implements an execution environment on the blockchain called the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM). Every node participating in the network runs the EVM as part of the block verification protocol.
They go through the transactions listed in the block they are verifying and run the code as triggered by the transaction within the EVM. Each and every full node in the network does the same calculations and stores the same values.
Clearly Ethereum is not about optimising efficiency of computation. Its parallel processing is redundantly parallel. This is to offer an efficient way to reach consensus on the system state without needing trusted third parties, oracles or violence monopolies.
But importantly they are not there for optimal computation. The fact that contract executions are redundantly replicated across nodes, naturally makes them expensive, which generally creates an incentive not to use the blockchain for computation that can be done offchain.

When you are running a decentralized application (dapp), it interacts with the blockchain to read and modify its state, but dapps will typically only put the business logic and state that are crucial for consensus on the blockchain.
When a contract is executed as a result of being triggered by a message or transaction, every instruction is executed on every node of the network. This has a cost: for every executed operation there is a specified cost, expressed in a number of gas units.
Gas is the name for the execution fee that senders of transactions need to pay for every operation made on an Ethereum blockchain. The name gas is inspired by the view that this fee acts as cryptofuel, driving the motion of smart contracts.
Gas is purchased for ether from the miners that execute the code. Gas and ether are decoupled deliberately since units of gas align with computation units having a natural cost, while the price of ether generally fluctuates as a result of market forces.
The two are mediated by a free market: the price of gas is actually decided by the miners, who can refuse to process a transaction with a lower gas price than their minimum limit. To get gas you simply need to add ether to your account.
The Ethereum clients automatically purchase gas for your ether in the amount you specify as your maximum expenditure for the transaction.

The Ethereum protocol charges a fee per computational step that is executed in a contract or transaction to prevent deliberate attacks and abuse on the Ethereum network.

Every transaction is required to include a gas limit and a fee that it is willing to pay per gas. Miners have the choice of including the transaction and collecting the fee or not.
If the total amount of gas used by the computational steps spawned by the transaction, including the original message and any sub-messages that may be triggered, is less than or equal to the gas limit, then the transaction is processed.
If the total gas exceeds the gas limit, then all changes are reverted, except that the transaction is still valid and the fee can still be collected by the miner. All excess gas not used by the transaction execution is reimbursed to the sender as Ether.
You do not need to worry about overspending, since you are only charged for the gas you consume. This means that it is useful as well as safe to send transactions with a gas limit well above the estimates.
The gas price limit is fixed at present to provide for a stable launch of Ethereum but will be allowed to free float according to the demand and the amount of total gas per block will be increased gradually to encourage the stability of the Ethereum network.

What is UASF (BIP 148)

Instruction in case of chain split
There is a chance Bitcoin will experience a chain-split on August 1st.
A segment of all Bitcoin users is committed to activate a user activated soft fork (UASF) as described in Bitcoin Improvement Proposal 148 (BIP 148).
Specifically, they will reject any Bitcoin blocks that do not signal support for Segregated Witness (SegWit), the centerpiece of Bitcoin Core’s scaling roadmap.
If a majority of miners (by hash power) does not signal support for SegWit on August 1st, but at least some do, Bitcoin’s blockchain will split in two.
In that case, there would be two types of Bitcoin tokens, which we’ll refer to in this article as “148 BTC” for coins on the soft forked chain, and “Legacy BTC” for coins on the chain that did not activate the soft fork.
The good news is that each bitcoin would effectively be copied to both chains. If you hold bitcoin right now, you will hold both 148 BTC and Legacy BTC after the split.
The bad news is that this coin-split can be messy and risky. And if you’re not careful, you could lose funds.
This guide will provide you with the basics to keeping your funds safe during the UASF and will help to make sure you make it to the “other side” with all your bitcoins intact.

Before August 1
First off, be aware that a chain-split create a high-risk situation.
There is a chance that some sort of cyber-battle will break out between the two camps, perhaps even escalating to the point where bitcoin’s exchange rate(s) drops sharply, possibly to zero.
Make absolutely sure you are not holding more value in bitcoin than what you are willing to lose.
If you do decide to hold onto your bitcoins, the single most important piece of advice is this: Ensure that you control your own private keys.
If you are storing your bitcoins on an exchange, in a custodial wallet like Coinbase, Circle or Xapo, or on any other service that holds your private keys for you, you may or may not eventually receive coins on both ends of the chain.
In fact, if these kinds of services aren’t well-prepared, there could be scenarios where you don’t get any coins at all. So far, no exchanges have given any kind of guarantee.
So if you’re using any of these kinds of services to store your bitcoins, you need to create your own wallet.
Send your bitcoins to one or several Bitcoin addresses in this new wallet. This wallet now holds your private keys.
What kind of wallet you use is up to you. That said, here are some basic solutions:
If you don’t care about transacting with bitcoin (either 148 BTC or Legacy BTC) anytime soon and really just want to keep both as a long-term investment, printing your private keys on a paper wallet is one option.
This option, however, is only really secure if you follow strict security precautions, which you can find here.
Another option is to get a hardware wallet. Any of the hardware wallets listed on bitcoin.org will keep your private keys secure.
Most regular desktop or mobile wallets, as listed on bitcoin.org, are about as secure as your computer or phone is.
Since most computers and phones are not all that secure, these are not ideal for large amounts.
With that in mind, all mobile wallets and desktop wallets listed on bitcoin.org will store your private keys for you.
In any case: Be sure to make backups of your keys! Most wallets require you to do this when installing: don’t skip this step.

On, and Perhaps (shortly) After, August 1
If a majority of hash power signals support for Segregated Witness on or before August 1st, the protocol upgrade will activate smoothly. In that case, you’re fine, even if you didn’t prepare at all.
But it’s also possible that a majority of hash power will not go along with the BIP 148 UASF on August 1st, in which case the chain could split.
If you hold your private keys, you will then have both 148 BTC and Legacy BTC.
Such a chain-split could resolve in several ways.
If at any point on or after August 1st, the 148 BTC chain becomes the chain with most accumulated proof of work, both BIP 148 nodes as well as Legacy nodes would switch to the 148 BTC chain.
As such, the Legacy BTC chain should be discarded, resolving the situation. It would have been a temporary split, and you should be fine if you held onto your private keys.
You can now continue to use bitcoin as usual.
But unless and until this happens (or other types of precautions are taken), there is always at least a theoretical risk that the Legacy BTC chain can be overtaken and be discarded like this.
That chance should decrease as time goes on, but will realistically exist for hours, perhaps days, and maybe even longer — even if no blocks are found on the 148 BTC chain.
As such, buying or accepting Legacy BTC after the split — and especially shortly after the split — is very risky.
These bitcoins can quite literally disappear if the 148 BTC chain overtakes the Legacy BTC chain.
Therefore, it’s not recommended that you buy or accept any Legacy BTC — if you do, at least be aware of and comfortable with the risk that your money could cease to exist.
BIP 148 nodes will never acknowledge the Legacy chain, so these will not switch regardless of which chain has more hash power.
However, it is very risky to buy, accept or hold 148 BTC, too. Most importantly, there is no guarantee that 148 BTC will continue to be used.
While that is of course true for any cryptocurrency, due to slow mining difficulty adjustments, a potentially hostile environment, and the continued possibility for SegWit to activate on the Legacy chain after all, it’s probably more true for 148 BTC.
Additionally, block confirmations may be very slow for quite a while, which could make using 148 BTC for transacting impractical.
If you want to accept 148 BTC regardless, you need to run a BIP 148 full node as a wallet.

 On top of the Legacy BTC chain being discarded or the 148 BTC chain withering away, there is another big risk: replay attacks.
In case of a chain-split, transactions on both sides of the fork will look identical.
If a transaction is picked up by both 148 BTC and Legacy BTC nodes — for example, because the receiver of a transaction retransmits that transaction — the transaction may be valid on both chains.
This is called a “replay attack.”
As such, spending coins on one end of the chain could make you accidentally spend the equivalent coin on the other side of the chain.
Instead of paying someone only in 148 BTC, you may unintentionally send Legacy BTC as well, or vice versa. 148 BTC and Legacy BTC are initially “stuck together.”
The best way to prevent replay attacks is simple: Do not send any transactions. At least not until it is clearer to everyone what the post-fork situation looks like. 

After the Chain-Split
In case of the BIP 148 UASF, it is a bit hard to say what “after the chain-split” actually means.
If the 148 BTC chain gets more accumulated proof of work, it should be the only chain to survive, and the split would be over.
All 148 BTC would then simply be bitcoins (BTC) again. But if that doesn’t happen fast, and even if the 148 BTC chain appears non-active, a chain-split could, at the very least, linger for a while.
Miners could start mining on that chain at any time. As such, the 148 BTC chain can in theory always wipe out the Legacy BTC chain.
And there are also possible scenarios where the two chains — 148 BTC and Legacy BTC — coexist.
What’s more, even a scenario where more than two chains emerge can’t be taken out of the equation.
In these scenarios, you will have coins on both (or all) sides of the fork.

But as mentioned, it will be tricky to spend coins on one chain without accidentally spending the equivalent on the other(s). And the bad news is that splitting these coins can be a bit complex. (It will require freshly mined or double-spent coins.)
The good news, however, is that some exchanges will likely set up coin-splitting services and take care of most of the complexity behind the screens.
You’d just need to send your bitcoins to an exchange, and the exchange will credit your account with 148 BTC and Legacy BTC. At that point, if you want, you will be able to sell or trade your coins.
If the split persists, there should be wallets for both coins soon enough. Of course, you may need to upgrade your existing wallet or download a new wallet if and when this happens.
This outcome also remains to be seen. Do not accept any transactions on your wallet before this is clear.
Further specifics on what to do after a coin-split will be announced on bitcoin.org and other sources of information. if and when a coin-split occurs and we have a better understanding of the post-fork situation.

So, to Recap…
1. Control your private keys.
2. To be on the safe side, avoid any transactions on and shortly after August 1st. (How “shortly after” depends on what happens.)
3. If there are still two chains when the dust settles, split your coins into different wallets.

Global Cryptocurrency Benchmarking Study

Cryptocurrencies research
The “Global Cryptocurrency Benchmarking Study” is The Cambridge Centre for Alternative Finance (CCAF) inaugural research focused on alternative payment systems and digital assets. Led by
Dr. Garrick Hileman, the research is designed to “holistically” examine the global cryptocurrency market and, according to CCAF, is the first of its kind.
Michel Rauchs, a Research Assistant at CCAF, co-authored the report.

Dr. Hileman told:
“The data we collected indicate that the number of people actively using cryptocurrency is much greater than many people previously thought.
Many observers felt that fewer than a million individuals actively use cryptocurrency, but our data suggest that today there are likely well over a million active individuals using cryptocurrency.”

The Global Cryptocurrency Benchmarking Study gathered data from more than 100 cryptocurrency companies in 38 countries around the world via secure web-based questionnaires.
CCAF said they captured an estimated 75% of the cryptocurrency industry. Over 30 individual cryptocurrency miners were also surveyed.
Four key areas were targeted including exchanges, wallets, mining, and payments.

Highlights of the CCAF research include:
• The exchanges sector has the most operating entities and employs the most people, with significant geographic dispersion.
Currently, about 52% of small exchanges hold a formal government license, compared to only 35% of large exchanges.
CCAF says recent moves by the People’s Bank of China could soon alter this picture.
• Between 5.8 million and 11.5 million wallets are estimated to be “active” today.
If the average person has two wallets, this means there are between 2.9 million and 5.8 million individual active users of cryptocurrency. Approximately 52% of wallets providing an integrated currency exchange feature.
• While 79% of cryptocurrency payment companies have relationships with banking institutions and payment networks, the difficulty of obtaining and maintaining these relationships is cited as the biggest challenge by this sector.
National-to-cryptocurrency payments constitute two-thirds of total payment company transaction volume, with national-to-national at 27% and cryptocurrency-to-cryptocurrency at 6%.
• Publicly known mining facilities are geographically dispersed, with a significant concentration in certain Chinese provinces.
About 75% of all major mining pools are based in China and the US.
• Regarding employment, the study said about 1800 individuals are working full time in the cryptocurrency industry.
• A considerable number of miners seem to be indifferent as to how cryptocurrencies should be treated for tax purposes, but individual miners who are not indifferent would like to see cryptocurrencies being treated as currencies for tax purposes.
• A major concern of both small and large miners is the debate about how a cryptocurrency system should scale, and what methods should be used.

Dr. Hileman said that digital currencies like Bitcoin are not a passing fad. The combined market value was estimated at $27 billion. Hileman compared it to the value creation of a high-profile startup like AirBnB.
While Bitcoin may be the first and best-known cryptocurrency to emerge there are now hundreds of different types of digital coinage.
Bitcoin does remain the dominant cryptocurrency both in terms of market capitalisation and usage but it has conceded market share to other cryptocurrencies – declining from 86% to 72% in the past two years.

Emerging cryptocurrencies include; Ethereum, Dash, Monero, Ripple and Litecoin.

3 tricks for effective trading

3 tricks for effective trading
In order to be an effective trader, it’s important to have an edge with your strategy.
Cryptocurrencies are some of the hottest markets to trade due to the increased volatility driven by emotion.
Trading is a zero sum game and only disciplined traders make consistent gains. Here are three simple tricks that may increase your win ratio.

Master a one kick trick
“I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who had practiced one kick 10,000 times.” - Bruce Lee
Always have a plan before executing a trade and learn to master one effective strategy that can produce consistent results.
You don’t need a million bells and whistles to make money, just one simple tactic that works.
Wing Chun Kung Fu has a very efficient yet simple principal of “one punch, one kick.”
The idea is to accomplish the job as quickly as possible with very minimal effort.
Who needs a flying roundhouse kick, when a straight stomp to the knee will incapacitate your opponent with one simple move.
Find your edge in the market, a technique that works and stick to your plan. If you don’t have a strategy then you shouldn’t be on the battlefield.
Traders who execute random orders without a plan usually lose their money.

Trade Quality Over Quantity
One common mistake is the need to always be in a trade. Some traders get whiplash by chasing the market during choppy conditions.
Seasoned traders are very picky about when to pull the trigger. Most of the time the markets produce a 50/50 possibility for success.
You want to be patient and wait for trades that have a higher probability than a coin toss.
It’s better to find good trade setups instead of treating the markets like a roulette table.
That said, even quality trades have an element of chance, therefor you always need to have an exit strategy to manage risk.
Traders tend to make money when the markets are inefficient, unless you’re running an algorithm that scalps a flat market, stay away from choppy or stable price action.
Only trade in market conditions that are conducive to your particular trading strategy.

Manage Risk
Even if you have the most effective trading strategy in the world, with the best market conditions, there’s no guarantee of your success.
There are no absolutes when it comes to trading and nothing is ever guaranteed, ever.
Trading is all about probabilities and possibilities so it’s always good to have a backup plan in case you’re wrong.
Technical analysis is a way to quantify price action and frame your strategy with a series of if/then scenarios.
It’s always important to look at both sides of the market.

Risk management is a necessary ingredient for staying alive in these markets and making consistent gains.
Here are some things you may want to consider for your risk management strategy.
- Reduce counterparty risk
- Position size
- Set stops or hedge your position
- Go easy on leverage (excess leverage is risky.)

We hope that these lessons will help newcomers to adapt to the cryptocurrency ecosystem.

How Non-Coders Can Be More Involved In Ethereum

Suggestions from Vitalik Buterin
The success of Ethereum hinges on the efforts of its community.
Without the community, there is no Ethereum.
While it’s possible for a person to understand the benefits of Ethereum without being a technical expert, it isn’t easy for a layperson to become involved in advancing the project.

Luckily, when an Ethereum supporter posted a question to Reddit, asking how to be more involved without knowing how to code, Vitalik Buterin responded.
While most of the work being done on the Ethereum platform requires software development knowledge, there are plenty of ancillary ways a non-dev can help.

Buterin suggests:
1) Try to start a meetup or event if there aren't any where you live.
2) Introduce those of your friends who are (mathematicians | cryptographers | developers | economists) to Ethereum and see if they are interested in contributing.
3) Work for a startup doing ethereum-based projects in some non-developer capacity.
4) Try to use any dapps that you find interesting. Complain to the devs about any user experience difficulties that you encounter, and otherwise give helpful feedback.
5) If you know both English and some other language, try translating (warning: translating the really technical stuff does also require basically being a technical expert, but not everything does).
6) If you have some idea for a dapp that you think could be very promising, start a company around it.

At this early stage of development, Ethereum still needs advocates, especially non-technical people who understand Ethereum, and see the advantages it can bring to the world.
As Jamie Pitts, who has coded for the Ethereum Foundation, suggests, a person can help by first learning about a specific project, then contributing to its documentation and how-to guides. Pitts shared:

“Across all Ethereum-related projects, there are tons of documentation, how-to, and educational material that can be contributed to. You'll need to get more familiar with the platform and the various projects that use Ethereum to be helpful. Once at that point, reach out to the devs of your favorite project on the appropriate Gitter channel.”

As the blockchain hasn’t been around all that long, general public outreach to increase awareness of the Ethereum platform is always a benefit to the ecosystem. There are so many ways to help, so get out there and spread the good word.

What's happened with the Bitcoin at the beginning of January?

PBOC Bitcoin price manipulation
As you may know, on January 5th, 2017 Bitcoin price pumped up to $1166 / ¥8888.
Most traders were confident in the continuation of growth, as it overcame the previous maximum rate and trading volumes.
But, unexpectedly for the majority of users, BTC price fell for $300 on the same day.

What caused the sudden rate collapse?
Despite the fact that Bitcoin is a decentralized and independent currency, exchange rate is based on the supply and demand, and the majority of daily trading volumes (up 95%) occur in China.
During the rapid growth, PBOC (People's Bank of China) warnings major Bitcoin exchanges.
PBOC suspected manipulation of market by exchanges and threatened by inspection, which caused panic sell for Bitcoin in China, which led to the rate fall from ¥8888 to ¥5000.
Many traders immediately left Bitcoin and began to predict a further decline.
For our team it was obvious that this news does not affect Bitcoin and the benefits that it brings to the market.
In other words, Bitcoin fell due to the speculative news, and its upward trend has not been broken.

The Chinese government has just tried to slow down a transfusion of capital into Bitcoin, by releasing a public statement on planned inspections.
Interestingly, after the news on found operational violations Bitcoin rate began its re-growth.
On January 22nd the leading Chinese exchanges OKcoin, Huobi and BTCChina announced the implementation of commissions on trading transactions with Bitcoin, which also had a positive impact on Bitcoin price, which continues to glide to $ 1,000.
The main purpose of this news is to convey to the traders the importance of correct information analysis. If the news is related to the technical problems in the cryptocurrency protocol, it indicates the long-term dump, and closure of position by large investors.
But if the news is purely political or speculative, be sure it is a short-term dump attempt, during which the whale is gaining a position before continuing pump.
This scheme is applicable to any large cryptocurrency and the competent information analysis helps to make the right strategic decisions.
We recommend beginners to learn to separate technical news from speculative and fix their profits on right time!

Happy Trading!
Sincerely, Ethtrade team.

Trading strategy: Long term investment

Wise investor tactic
Cryptocurrencies are a profitable asset, but at the same time these type of investments have remarkable risks and requires a permanent concentration from investors.
It is not a secret that popularity of cryptocurrencies grows constantly in the entire world, and the general index of the cryptocurrency cost assets grows together with it.

The general capitalization of the cryptocurrency market currently is $12 billion, that is a drop in the ocean compare to the daily turnovers of world financial markets.
As soon as the distribution of digital currencies reaches its critical mass, the exponential raise of capitalization of popular and perspective cryptocurrencies will begin.
Imagine, how much will cost the basic cryptocurrency tokens, if the general capitalization reaches $100 billion? or $1 trillion? And it is very real, taking into account the crazy raise of popularity of Bitcoin, Ethereum and other perpsective currencies!
If you want to get considerable profit and at the same time not to spend your time 24/7 on stock exchange, we recommend you to consider the following working scheme on the example of Ethereum, but it is applicable almost to other coins.

Let’s consider you bought Ethereum for $15 and did not have time to sell for more. A price went down to 12$. Instead of closing the transaction with the loss of $3 for each ETH, we recommend you to save coins, and not to fix the loss, as it is expected that in the coming months the cost of ETH will overcome the value of $15.
You can keep your coins, or to compel the assets to work, by giving them to your trusted traders of Ethtrade, which will be able to increase the amount of your Ethereum for the period of time, when the actual price is below the cost of your purchase. As soon as Ethereum will overcome the price of $15, you will be able to sell them again and get additional profit.
An alternative tactic could be to find something in the middle. If you bought ETH for $15 and $11, then selling for $13 will allow you to close position without loss, and selling for $14 will bring some profit.

As you see, such simple tactics can minimize your risks, but sometimes you need to wait for some time. Attention, this tactics are not applicable for the coins with the high rate of inflation, such as STEEM tokens (this doesnt apply to the SBD and SP in the network of Steemit, read more here)
Similar tactics are applicable only to those Altcoins, which have perspective of development, active team of developers and high functionality. During the time of development such projects can pass the same price level several times on graphics, allowing the traders and investors to close with profit the transactions that were in loss before. Less popular cryptocurrencies can grow in a price only 1 time, and gradually lose a cost in upcoming years, therefore the above mentioned tactics are not applicable to them.

Ethtrade team constantly studies front-rank cryptocurrency developments and takes only the best projects, to apply such tactics!

Major cryptocurrency developmet clusters

Coins classification
At this moment, crypto it's a wild marketplace, which is difficult to structure, but still there are several major clusters of cryptocurrency technology development:

- Digital currency 1.0 for transferring value (BTC, LTC, DOGE)
- Privacy-centric digital currency (XMR, DASH)
- Smart contracts platforms (ETH, EXP, NEX, NXT, BTS, XCP, OMNI)
- Decentralized social networks (STEEM, AMP)
- Decentralized file storages (SJCX, MAID, SC)
- Fiat tokens (USDT, SBD, BitUSD)
- Prediction markets will appear in the nearest future (Augur, Gnosis)

The strategy is to identify main trends at the market and buy clusters of coins. For example, when the question of anonymity and privacy will be raised again, it is likely that XMR and DASH values will grow. On the other hand, there are cases when coins show opposite trends within a single cluster. As an example, STEEM growth causes AMP fall and vice versa. We recommend to daily monitor the major trends and news in this new and dynamic field, using twitter, forums and chats with the developers. If you do not have enough time for this, but you want to become a part of the historical events of the general cryptocurrency acceptance - entrust your money to professionals! Our experienced team of traders and analysts monitors cryptoeconomy news 24/7, which allows to obtain a stable income with Ethtrade!

Trading strategy: cryptocurrency deposit managment

Management of trading deposit
The cryptocurrency ecosystem consists of many currency exchanges, exchange offices, services and start-ups. We share with investors the strategy of running your own deposit and of diversifying cryptocurrency assets.
Periodically, there are delays in funds withdrawal and website operation at cryptocurrency exchanges due to DDOS, technical works, government blockages and many other reasons.

We strongly recommend you not to keep all funds at one currency exchange If you apply a long-term investment strategy, i.e. buying altcoin for the purpose of selling it within 3-6-12 months, the best solution would be to withdraw altcoins from the currency exchange to your web wallet or desktop wallet. In this case, your coins will be safe in case of possible problems at the currency exchange. At any time, you can transfer coins from the wallet to any exchange, that accepts the altcoins.
It is crucial to get and to keep in a safe place the public and private keys to your wallet, this is your login and password, but the password recovery feature is not available in blockchains.

If you are more likely to conclude scalp and introday transactions, in any case you will have to store coins on exchanges. In case you do not want to fix the damages after the fall in the value of purchased coins, we recommend using a strategy from the previous paragraph and to keep these coins in the wallet before the next pump. Cryptocurrency economy is rapidly growing, the total capitalization grows, many coins are experiencing high volatility, and even in cases of heavy dumps they pass through one price level twice within a few months.

The arbitration strategy allows to make profit on the difference in currency rates between the exchanges. Arbitrage is buying cryptocurrency at one exchange with a low rate for the moment and selling it to another exchange with a higher rate. The strategy has its risks, namely the withdrawal delay (often the exchanges specifically delay the withdrawal of some coins in moments of high volatility), or long transfer processing. Some cryptocurrencies need more than an hour to confirm the transaction. During these delays, the exchange rate may change in an unfavorable direction, and an arbitrage user will have to fix the damage.

To sum up, we would like to share recommendations on the trade deposit distribution between the exchanges:

- Poloniex - 40% (different altcoins)
- Kraken - 20% (ETC, BTC, LTC, XRP)
- Okcoin / Huobi / BTCChina - 15% (BTC, CNY)
- Bittrex - 10% (different altcoins)
- Bitfinex - 10% (BTC, ETH, LTC, ETC)
- Openledger - 5% (different BTS assets)

In other words, we recommend diversifying trade deposit between the exchanges and to distribute the investment deposit between wallets
