13 Which browsers are compatible with this system?
Our system needs a web browser that is compatible with the latest technologies. We recommend Google Chrome, Firefox 3(or higher), Safari and Internet Explorer 10(or higher).
14 What is the best investment to start with?
Most of the brokers set the minimum investment position to 25 USD/GBP/Euro. Sometimes, the system may open multiple overlapped positions. This is why there is a minimum investment level so that you have enough capital in your CoinCrest account for the selected 3rd party company to trade effectively for you. They do not work with clients that invest less than the USD equivalent of 30 BTC as an initial investment. This allows the robot or human traders to have long and short term positive performances. For serious investors, we recommend a starting investment above the minimum level from about 75 BTC and above. This allows the system to take advantage of every good profit potential opportunity.
