Now don’t get me wrong I don’t want anybody to go all in with their house, car, life savings, shoes, dog and soul of their first born child. It’s a pure gamble until you are actually doing it professional as a half time / full time job.
But just doing it with a **demo account / test account** or little pocket money you are 100% ready to gamble can give you experience judging the price movement way better.
**And most importantly: you really get numb to red numbers.** Seriously, if you’ve got a trade open and it falls -90% just to bounce and go back up into profit without you panic selling might be an experience that helps you through worst times with your actual crypto holdings. Leverage is basically your normal crypto chart on crack. Like 5x fast foreword compared to normal.
Also, you realize very quickly **how stupid degenerate gambling it is to use high leverage on a volatile asset.** When a single candle is printed and your entire position got liquidated.
You also gain **practical experience** moving assets around from exchange to exchange or wallet / hardware wallet.
And you might also learn a lot about market psychology, live price movement and find indicators to improve your DCA! Why small cap coins move so much different then the top once. How specific crypto reacts to specific news or other asset movement.
And hey who knows! Maybe you actually get lucky and end up in profit. But you probably won’t but at least learned something.
TL;DR: I just personally think trading crypto is a fundamental part of the entire crypto system. While it provides liquidity for assets to stay more stable you can also learn a lot of new things about any crypto out there.
