We Need to Change the Landscape of Crypto Trading Through “Algocratization”
Cryptocurrency trading has always been fundamentally different from traditional finance in lots of ways.
It’s more inclusive, easier to make big and quick gains, has lower barriers to entry, and doesn’t require huge startup costs.
Maybe these are the reasons why crypto has been so fiercely and constantly undermined by the elitist financial class ever since it’s been big enough to catch their attention.
Crypto represents a marketplace where you don’t have to be a millionaire to get started and achieve huge success.
This article tells the story of a man who started with an investment of just $3,000 and made enough money to retire and travel the world in enormous luxury forever.
This market has the potential to redefine the way we think about trading. But even so, it isn’t as equal as it could be. There are still many opportunities for the wealthy and well-connected to secure big advantages.
That means there’s still some work to be done. It’s important to preserve crypto’s values, make things fairer, and ensure that newcomers to crypto aren’t excluded because they don’t have enough money or influence.
First up, let’s take a look at why less established traders might be finding it harder to break into crypto.
Excluded from Tech by Tech
One of the biggest things preventing ordinary traders from having real success with crypto is algorithms. More specifically, how difficult good trading algorithms are to build and access.
In traditional, Wall Street finance, algorithms are a staple of the profession. They’re widely used by trading firms and those in the know because they bring massive advantages to the table.
Algorithms take care of the mundane, repetitive parts of trading, the bits humans can’t stand. They can monitor the markets constantly, buy or sell stock when the price reaches a certain point, and easily automate a lot of the necessary but monotonous elements of finance.
They also help reduce the risk of human error. People are famously prone to making big mistakes when it comes to trading. Fear, anxiety, and impulsivity can drive otherwise cool-headed traders to make disastrous blunders costing enormous sums of money. That doesn’t exist with AI.
And in cryptocurrency trading, algorithms are even more useful. That’s because the crypto markets operate on a 24/7 basis, meaning it’s literally impossible for a single human to monitor them effectively.
To make matters worse, cryptocurrencies are also notoriously volatile. Big crashes or staggering growth can happen pretty much overnight, and it’s easy for a person to miss out on danger and opportunity alike.
So for the beginner crypto trader, algorithms are a really important piece of the puzzle. Not having access to this technology puts you at a disadvantage from the offset.
So why isn’t every crypto trader using them? The answer is simple: cost. Unless you have the coding skill to put together your own algorithm, you’re forced to pay someone else to do it for you, and that kind of service doesn’t come cheap.
As always, it’s the wealthy and the well-connected that come out on top, while ordinary traders are left trailing and unable to make use of this valuable weapon.
In order to make crypto more accessible and allow anyone to have a good chance of success regardless of their wealth or status, we need to make algorithms much more easily available. The good news is that several companies are doing just that.
Algorithms for Everyone
Among the companies trying to make algorithms more accessible is Capitalise.
Through their platform where users can build their own algorithms affordably and easily without any coding knowledge required.
In the Algobuilder platform, users simply type instructions in plain English and the interface takes care of the rest. It even gives suggestions and guides users through popular steps to help build a typically effective algorithm.
If you manage to create a successful model, you’ll be able to share it with other users in the network. Capitalise even want to build a kind of social network, where traders will be able to help one another and draw on each other’s expertise.
Projects like this represent a more equal, community-minded approach to crypto trading, where users are encouraged to support each other. It’s a push towards a more inclusive crypto trading market, where participation isn’t restricted to wealthy and established traders.

OTC Risk Warnings
Because many securities traded Over-The-Counter (OTC) are relatively illiquid, or “thinly traded,” which tends to increase volatility in market prices, an investment in an OTC security involves a high degree of risk. These speculative and illiquid securities are often difficult for investors to buy or sell without significantly affecting the quoted price. It should be noted that the liquidation of a position in an OTC security may not even be possible within a reasonable period of time.
Dependable information regarding issuers of OTC securities, their prospects, or the risks associated with the business of any particular issuer or an investment in the issuer’s securities may not be available. For this reason, it may be difficult to properly value an investment in an OTC security or accurately determine the risks involved with investing in such a security. For more information about investing in microcap securities, please read the content on the SEC’s website, including the SEC’s investor publication titled “Microcap Stock: A Guide for Investors” available at https://www.sec.gov/investor/pubs/microcapstock.htm.
Issuers of OTC securities quoted on the OTC Link system are not required to provide any kind of information to investors. While many issuers register OTC securities with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and regularly provide reports to investors in connection with such registration, they are not required to continue such registration or regularly provide such reports because their securities are quoted on OTC Link. Securities may continue to be quoted on the OTC Link system if issuers are delinquent in their reporting obligation to the SEC or other federal or state regulatory agencies. Quotation of a security on the OTC Link system does not in itself create any ongoing filing or reporting obligations with the SEC for any issuer. In fact, issuers may not even be aware that their securities are quoted on the OTC Link system.
