Yes of course I do consider trading as gambling. You have the same risk to lose all of your money with trading so it's a similar thing.
Logically is not.If it is,then share market,gold investment,real estate investment or any other form of investment supporting demand/supply paradigm should be considered as gambling.Makes sense ?

Gambling is directly proportional to luck,no one controls your luck (not provable fairness actually controls).On the other hand,trading is totally dependent on the market prices .You cannot create a scarcity in the market unless you're President of America.I don't think trading projects any form of gambling.It has been carried out since day 1 of the globalization and always will.Little do you know that bitcoin contributes to only a small part of it.

Yes gambling is purely based on luck and no one predict this when we get luck. Some times we plan to stop betting because of continuous loss but in that time our luck will work and we start to win our betting. So in both trading and gambling we need luck and both are same. Both have same risk.

Not all gambling games are based on luck, some of it are also a skill based like card games on an online casinos out there, take into account the card game poker, wherein you need a good thinking to win the game, and a small part of that game is only affected by the luck that you just had said.

Luck based games are the ones like the dice game, roulette, or slots, wherein you don't have a control of the result even for a small part of the game.
Gambling not that best than trading and that is because you dont have to be lucky in trading if you want to earn some money with it you just only need a strategy.
And in gambling there is a higher chance that you are losing money than you win so that is really bad.

actually trading is more like ponzi in nature, because always when trading if you lose some one else wins and if you profit as well some one
Else is losing money, but gambling is just for the house to win and 97% of players to lose then 3% win with the house as well.

Disagree.

Trading earnings depends on your strategy on how you will buy or sell your coins.

Ponze earnings depends only on the mood of the owner if they will still continue to give rewards to it's clients.

See the difference?

I think that trading is gambling since they both mainly rely on luck.
If you don't go through the news about the altcoin or bitcoin at back and only rely on the troll in trading platform than only luck matters but if you can trade with making wise dicision and knowledge about how market will behave with news you will get profit without any risk.
basically trading is not something that rely/based on luck , but gambling it is.
trading need a good knowledge , skills and experience to starts make profit.
but gambling no need anything except 1. money 2. brave , so i did not consider trading same as gambling.

Sports gambling also need knowledge of the game and getting good odds on each bet. You need to study stats of players and teams in order to make a good judgement on each bet. It is just the same in trading, where you need to study graphs and figures. Dice gambling are different. Those games are based purely on luck.

Correct.  A ponzi makes money as more and more people 'invest' in it.  For every person in the ponzi, he must find (or swindle) 2 or more investors so he could get paid.  And this builds up like a pyramid.  As long as there are investors coming in it's all good for the guys at the top and the middle.

In trading on the other hand, someone must lose money in order for someone to win.  It's a zero sum game like poker.

In case of legality they are definetely different but in case of money they are the same imo, because we are risking our money to get profit.

Both gambling and trading is almost the same. You can get profit through it but it only matter about their chance to earn. Trading sure can earn but with slow rate meanwhile you can earn a lot through gambling but sure with high risk. But people want to earn fast money thats why most of them are using gambling as their method to earn

but i don't think that gambling and trading are the same thing. in gambling when you bit and lost it . it mean that you have lost the money for ever. but in trading when you buy some thing fro price increase but unfortunately the price of the think fell down then you can hold the things for months and year for price increase and the is the benefit of trading.

Gambling is more riskier than trading, the chances of losing all your money by gambling is high whereas in trading you'll lose less. gambling is fun though.  Roll Eyes

It depends.
Gambling with poker holds the same kind of risk as trading a regular altcoins. In terms of risk they don't differ to much.
Gambling with dice, holds the same amount of any new altcoin. It can be pumped very fast and you take profit very fast, or you can lose all...

I do not see trading as gambling because with trading you get something in return but with gambling you either end up witch much or you end up with nothing at all.
So I would not consider trading the same as gambling.

Both were different, the real factor is that trading and gambling gives higher earning. For this most users have understanding that both were similar. Trading gives earning upon the time spend as well on close observation of price movements. Gambling is purely on luck as well knowledge about sport personalities and events.

Ponzi is a scam and should not be compared with trading. And ponzi is a business while trading is work, they are not comparable. Ponzi are for lazy people who want quick returns on their investment even if they will be scammed in the end.

Trading and gambling is almost identical but still different from each other. Gambling is only won in pure luck but trading is won thru hard work and a little bit of luck.

trading is not gambling if you do a really good market analysis so you can know the price in this month and you start trade and make profit so easy.
with trade you need only skills but in gambling there is always luck needed if you need to win and even if some games need skills but luck always present.
anyway trading need no luck for me and profitable more that gambling.

I think there are almost the same, but it is also depend on how people interpret the two. Sometimes it looks like the same because in trading you will also consuming your effort and time like also gambling. But in gambling you will lose money, effort and time. So I just think it is just depend on how people interpret it.
