Overview: Crypto Currency trading is similar to traditional stock trading as tokens are listed on various exchanges. To join an exchange is simple as registering for the site and depositing/sending your Bitcoin from your wallet to the site. A few very nice advantages to this over traditional stock market trading are the much lower transaction fees, speed of buying and selling and you can start with as little as $10 where most brokerage firms require much larger amounts.
Coin Market Cap: This is where the coins are listed and can be researched for proof of work, latest news, volume of trading, exchanges listed on, social media posts and current value with charts. There is no trading on this site, just information and research.
