What are cryptocurrencies?

A cryptocurrency is a type of digital currency created from code that functions outside of traditional banking and government systems. Cryptocurrencies differ significantly from traditional currencies as they use blockchain technology to create a database that’s decentralised.

Traders find opportunity in cryptocurrency’s market volatility by speculating on the price movement of various crypto products with a CFD account. You can open a position on margin to gain more exposure to market possibilities using a relatively small amount of your capital.

In addition to opportunity, rapid price movements also increase risk, so make sure you create a risk management strategy to become a better trader. 

Cryptocurrencies, which are generally unregulated in themselves, are high-risk, speculative investments, which will impact any cryptocurrency CFD trades that you enter with us. The value of cryptocurrencies, and therefore the value of CFD Trades linked to them, is extremely volatile. They are vulnerable to sharp and sudden changes in price due to unexpected events or changes in market sentiment. CFD Trades are leveraged products. Therefore the combination of increased volatility and leverage has the potential to significantly increase your losses if the market moves against you, relative to CFD Trades based on other products. Furthermore, there are general risks in trading cryptocurrencies. Cryptocurrencies are unregulated in Singapore. There are also cybersecurity risks, given cryptocurrencies are virtual currencies. Accordingly, you should only invest in cryptocurrency CFD Trades if you consider that you have the knowledge and experience of, and fully understand the risks associated with, both CFDs and cryptocurrencies.
