Cryptocurrency dependence has become a diagnosis

Psychotherapists around the world have noticed an increase in the number of “crypto-addicts”, but the market has responded to this problem very quickly.

More and more experts in the treatment of addiction are specializing in quitting cryptocurrency trading, and in the United States, several clinics have already opened special branches for those who cannot control this habit.

In the past few years, there has been a great increase in investments in the cryptocurrency market, as well as persons who trade in them.

Cryptocurrencies are now bought not only by those who have a surplus of money but also by people with average incomes who hope to earn money quickly by buying and reselling them.

The problem, however, is that this constant monitoring of the digital money market can become addictive.

How do you know if you are addicted?

Crypto-addiction is a relatively new phenomenon.

It is reflected in the pathological obsession that requires constant monitoring of the crypto-market and compulsive buying and selling of digital currencies.

This type of addiction, like all others, can have a very negative effect on the health of addicts.

They are often extremely euphoric when they record good results in trade, but they can also get very upset when trading “does not go well”.

Psychologists say that crypto-addicts have the most similarities with gamblers, and warn that this addiction should not be taken lightly, because gamblers have the highest number of suicides from the group of those who have an addiction.

Some of the signs of crypto-addiction are the need to invest larger sums of money so that the potential gain is accompanied by more intense euphoria, compulsive checking of cryptocurrency market movements at any time of the day or night, loss of interest in other activities, inability to think about other things cryptocurrencies as well as the inability to pause trading and investing, insomnia, dissatisfaction, anger, and other negative feelings if for some reason you can not invest in this market, jeopardizing your own financial stability by constantly investing in cryptocurrencies, lending or stealing money to further investment, etc.

Experts say that some crypto-addicts can also experience muscle tension, anxiety, and other physical manifestations of addiction.

Due to the growing number of people who cannot control this need across the United States, addiction treatment clinics have included cryptocurrency obsession in their program, and a new branch of psychotherapy has been created that deals only with this problem.
