Cognitive Biases

Today we’re taking on a topic that is extremely important in the cryptocurrency world, but is applicable in all areas of life: Cognitive Biases. These are the pre-programmed ways our brain is constructed to deal with the things life throws at us. From trying to get even on a bad trade, to refusing to sell a coin no matter what we hear bad about the project, may of the ways in which we react to the swings in the cryptocurrency community will be easier to understand when you understand your own biases. We go over some of the common biases, and then give some crypto and non-crypto examples of each one. Expand your mind in 101 Series: Cognitive Biases

Robin Hood is getting in the crypto game! You get a random stock valued between $2 and $200 and so do we, this is super exciting.
