Here is my opinion (based 100s of hours of reading news, youtube, blogs and connecting dots)
BTC will most likely cross over $20k soon. Last time during 2019, BTC reached $19k+ with the help of small players. This time several big institutions like Citibank, Goldman, Square, Paypall, MicroStrategy, etc. are supporting BTC.
Binance is one of the biggest exchange for Crypto trading followed by Coinbase. I like binance due to low transaction fees and provides API to automate or create a bot to buy/sell Crypto currencies.
Robinhood is transaction free and doesn't provide API, but you will pay more to buy as compared to other paid exchanges and loose more when you sell, compared to other exchanges.
I have created a serverless bot to buy/sell Bitcoins using custom algorithm, tested against 9 years of past data. Its been 9 months running on GCP and executed 1000+ transactions all by itself. With 1k Investment, Bot generated 30% profit in the last 9 months.
Overcame 3 times failure with my bot in the past 9 months. Looking forward for next failure.
