Day in the life of
Cryptocurrency Trader – Stefan Ateljevic
My typical day can be either incredibly stressful or really relaxed depending on the movement in the crypto market. The day usually starts with waking up, making a coffee, and kicking back on my couch while catching up on crypto news. Most of the work consists of checking periodically for spikes and price fluctuations of the coins that I’m trading that month. Once I’ve gathered enough data, I check on my buy/sell orders and adjust them accordingly. I take breaks when I need them, but end up working more than 10 hours per day and even pulling all-nighters to avoid missing out on profitable crypto trades. Before I go to sleep, I leave a few buy/sell orders open that will only trigger if there are significant movements in the market.

The cons are similar to those of gambling to some extent, where some people may find it hard to set limits and know when to call it a day. So it’s not a job that people can sustain for long periods of time and is really not fit for every person.
