Many crypto investors lose their crypto assets in the process of transfer of funds from their wallets to their wallets in the chosen exchange. Before transferring the coins one must double check the receiving wallet address and after copying the address one must check that the wallet has been copied completely. The transaction made to an incomplete wallet or a wrong wallet will result in irrecoverable loss of assets. Also, some currency transfers require attaching a memo with transaction, this must also be considered while transaction and the instructions must be read and fulfilled completely.
Keep the Transaction a Secret
As you never share your credit card information with anyone, while transferring the crypto from your wallet, you must not take any help from anybody and the transaction must be kept secret and secured.
Trade Crypto for Local Currency only
Always trade crypto transferred to the exchange in the local currency only to prevent the trading fees further. If you convert it into another currency first, and then to the local currency it will incur more trading fees.
Convert Crypto to Cash Only when Necessary
Never rush into converting crypto to cash and do it when absolutely necessary. As the price of crypto assets rise and fall rapidly, there is a chance that you are selling at a loss or by holding there might be a chance of appreciation in value.
