Investing topics, guides, news, and more. If you are interested in exploring the world of investments, it can be difficult to know where to start. In its simplest form, investing is the distribution of money or assets with the hope of future profit or benefit of some sort. There are many ways to invest and many types of investments. For example, one may invest in goods, real-estate, manufacturing, product development, research and development, or startups. In addition, there are many financial investments one can make. The expected benefit of investing is called return. One may calculate the value of their investment by looking at the potential return on investment (ROI). If there is no ROI or an insignificant ROI, one may opt to invest in something else. Though, returns on investment don’t have to be solely financial. For example, one may invest in something with the expected return of experience or lifestyle. Concerning financial investments, cryptocurrency falls under this type of investing. Though, the IRS does not see it this way. The IRS deems cryptocurrency to be a property asset rather than a monetary asset. In the US, taxes are to be paid under this distinction. In any case, cryptocurrency and blockchain technology are becoming an increasingly popular investment. Whether you are investing in actual currency to trade or hold, or in a company which utilizes crypto and blockchain technology, the investment avenues are endless. New startups are now conducting ICOs (Initial Coin Offerings) as a means for fundraising. ICOs are a form of crowdfunding in which investors purchase digital currency, i.e. tokens, instead of shares. This is a new wave of investment which has worked to fund countless innovative startups around the globe. With that said, it is essential to do your research before investing in anything. If you want to make investments, there are a number of factors you must take into account to make sure you are making the best decisions for you and your financial situation.
