What to consider when buying HegicInvesting in any type of cryptocurrency involves a level of risk, but HEGIC is a relatively new token and carries the risk of substantial price volatility. Additionally, HEGIC requires you to have an understanding of traditional options trading which is a high-risk market. Here are some of the factors to consider before investing in HEGIC:
- Research. Because the Hegic platform is aimed at options traders, you should have knowledge of options trading before purchasing HEGIC. The Hegic website recommends you test your own knowledge by asking yourself questions like: What is a call option? What is a put option? When do option holders earn money? Who is selling options in HEGIC?
- Staking. In cryptocurrency, staking means actively participating in transaction validation, usually for rewards. With HEGIC tokens you need a minimum of 888,000 HEGIC to acquire a staking lot. This in turn will give HEGIC token holders a right to receive settlement fees from options buyers, which is paid in Ether (ETH).
