What is Anything Crypto?

Anything Crypto is a free to use website providing cryptocurrency-based tools and guides.

We post regular, free, beginner-friendly guides on a range of cryptocurrency topics such as trading, mining and investing in general; covering coins like Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, and a range of others (what some people refer to as altcoins). We also post overviews of these guides on our YouTube channel. Over time we home to post unique content just to YouTube based around cryptocurrency basics, mining, trading and investing.

We also make cryptocurrency tools. As of January 2018 we have 2 mining calculators, for hardware mining and cloud mining, and a working portfolio tracker. As our user-base grows we hope to improve these existing tools and continue adding new ones. Long-term we have big plans for our portfolio tracker in particular, aiming for support of all popular exchanges and coin wallets.

We started Anything Crypto in late 2017, but as our traffic grows in 2018 we hope to spend more time and resources to continue improving our website and content. If you have any ideas or suggestions for potential guides or tools, get in touch!


What is an exchange/wallet?

Cryptocurrency exchanges are websites that allow you to trade between different cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin. Comparatively, a wallet is where you'd store cryptocurrencies long-term. You'd use a wallet over an exchange, because when your money is in an exchange - if the exchange were hacked, you could potentially lose every penny of your money. If you were to use a wallet, this can be kept offline - so can't be hacked in the same way. Generally if you have over $1000 in an exchange it's good to start moving some of your profits into a wallet.


What are cryptocurrencies?

When you get some cash in person and deposit that into a bank, this then becomes a virtual 'asset'. It isn't something you can touch, you just see a number representing your money when you do online banking. This is comparable to cryptocurrencies. These are entirely virtual, the price of a cryptocurrency is determined by how many people own them and their value (comparable to dollars, where if suddenly things become more expensive - the value of a single dollar becomes less). Cryptocurrencies are decentralised, which means they aren't controlled by a single person/body; this is attractive because changes to how they work can only be done if a large percentage of its users agree.

Never invest money you can't afford to lose.
