Up&Down on Step

With the ‘Up&Down’ game on Young Platform Step you can make forecasts on the cryptocurrency market without spending a penny

With Young Platform Step you learn so much more than theory! You also have the opportunity to test your skills on the market without actually having to buy every time. 

So choose a cryptocurrency and examine its trend: will the price go up or down? Make your choice, wait for it and if you are right, you receive experience points (XP) to level up. 

Discover the 3 steps to play Up&Down on Step!

Choose a cryptocurrency

You have at your disposal some of the most interesting coins on the market:

  • Bitcoin (BTC)
  • Ethereum (ETH)
  • Cardano (ADA)
  • Polkadot (DOT)
  • Ripple (XRP)
  • Solana (SOL)

Choose between UP and DOWN

Once you have chosen a currency, you can consult its market data in detail: the current price and the percentage change in price over 24h are previewed. 

Then there is the linear or candlestick chart, over no less than 5 periods: 6 hours, 1 day, 1 week, 1 month and 1 year.

As you scroll down you will see the Stats, which will show your wins on that coin, and how the rest of the community is currently forecasting, i.e. the percentage of UP or DOWN predictions currently being made.

You can use this information in two ways: you can either blindly follow your mates hoping that their predictions are accurate (beware of the herding effect) or you can consider it just one of several confirmations needed to decide the trend.

In any case, you have nothing to lose: you can try as many times as you want to hone your instincts, and if the going gets tough, start studying!

Academy is packed with material on technical analysis used by traders. It doesn’t hurt to keep up with the news either: our Blog is perfect for staying on the pulse every day about the events that move the cryptocurrency market.

Make the forecast

Have you decided whether the crypto will go UP or DOWN?

Press one of the two buttons, then choose the duration. The duration indicates after how long the prediction will expire, which is the same time you will see whether the coin went UP or DOWN.

Example: It is 9 a.m. and BTC is at 20,000. I choose UP and select 3 hours. If at 12 noon BTC is worth more than €20,000, I win!

By tapping the ‘Forecast’ button and confirming, you will lose a life and the prediction will begin.

If you run out of lives you can wait for them to recharge, or watch a video advertisement if available, or purchase Unlimited Lives. With unlimited lives you can play both Quizzes and Up&Down freely without using up lives for 1 hour.

Time’s up! A notification will tell you the outcome of the prediction: if you have won, you will receive a number of experience points that varies according to the selected Duration. If the price did not change instead or if it went against your expectations, you will not receive XP.

Before you run off to play, remember: you can only make 2 predictions at the same time.

All clear, it’s time to discover Up&Down on Step!
