Premium Crypto TL;DRs

Short

Also known as shorting or going short, it is the practice of borrowing an asset to sell it, with the expectation that the price of the said asset will continue to decline and can be bought back later at a discount. If the prices decline, the short seller can buy the asset at a lower price and return it to the lender, thereby pocketing the profit (difference between two prices).
