F A Q
Who is CryptShares mainly for?
Anybody who is in any group that is chatting about trading or investing, if you already have a Slack Group, Discord Group or Telegram Group or any other type of group, CryptShares is an extremely helpful utility to be using with your group as it will help you stay a lot more organized and allow a visual representation of your groups activities. Even if you are a completely new to cryptocurrency investing and trading and have a few friends who are also in it, using CryptShares is a great way to start your adventure by helping each other and keeping track of each other activities so you can take on the markets together more efficiently.
Isn't my chat channel good enough? What are the benefits of using CryptShares?
Using CryptShares allows you to have an advantage over other trading groups that are just using chat systems because it allows your group members to recieve information in an organized manner which speeds up everyones trading. Your members will appreciate the ability to follow your recommendations in an organized manner. After you have posted on your chat channel, you can add the important information on the dashboard, it takes a very long time to check information in a chat channel and its hard to know what information is the most important and its relative to the current moment and you have to scroll pages, CryptShares solves this issue by allowing all group members to see all the important information within seconds.
CryptShares works by your group members leaving the group dashboard open while you trade it allows your group to stay connected together while trading. The moon signal also helps alert everyone of important opportunities, with chat channels there is only one sound, if somebody is not sitting at the computer, they will not be able to tell the difference between a normal signal and a very important signal they shouldn't miss, with the moon signal you can alert everyone in your group about the opportunity as its a custom sound. Another benefit of using CryptShares is it will be easier for other members to show your trading group to other people and it is much easier for them to join your circle which allows for more memberships. The chip system is beneficial as well as it allows you to add weight to more important trades, you can give a couple of signals in one day and if one trade you believe will be more important and profitible, then you can express that by adding more chips to the more important trade.
You can continue to use your chat channel, we don't recommend you use the built-in chat system unless you have too, CryptShares does not replace your chat channel it works with it, after you have posted your information, you simply remind them to view the daily summary in your group page altho most members usually have the group window open while they trade. Adding the same information you put in the chat channel on the dashboard is very quick. Many traders already use Coinigy as a tool they leave open while trading, this is simply just a useful tool like Coinigy. The groups that are currently using the platform find it does provide many benefits and helps with daily trading quite significantly.
