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.
^Please note, we may, at our sole discretion, restrict your ability to go long or short.
