Why sell SC?
Depending on your risk tolerance and investment allocations, you may find it advantageous to sell SC for other cryptocurrencies or cash from time to time.
You might sell SC if you want to:
- Avoid losses in times of sudden price movement
- Cash out gains you made from renting excess space or for generating new blocks
- Exchange SC for other crypto or cash
- Reduce your portfolio’s exposure to crypto asset volatility.
