Cryptocurrency 101

What is a cryptocurrency?

Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are digital or virtual currencies that are decentralised, operating outside the control of any central authority. What that means for you, as a trader, is that cryptocurrencies are purely reliant on the forces of supply and demand, which can create significant volatility and a wealth of trading opportunities.

Do I need an exchange account?

Great news! You can now trade Bitcoin CFDs directly from your easyMarkets trading account just as you would trade forex, commodities or shares. So, you no longer need an “exchange account” with a virtual wallet to trade cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin. It’s so simple to get started, by simply opening an easyMarkets Live Account.

Can I trade Bitcoin?

Yes, you can!  Bitcoin is now available to trade as a cryptocurrency CFD at easyMarkets. You can trade Bitcoin (BTC) against majors such as USD, EUR, GBP, JPY and AUD. Every time you trade a Bitcoin CFD, you are predicting the price movement of the underlying asset, rather than buying or selling the asset itself.

Bitcoin vs. Forex

When we compare a centralised asset such as forex and a decentralised asset like Bitcoin, things get interesting. Traders try to benefit from market volatility when exchanging both FX and cryptocurrencies for other assets, but the fact that Bitcoin operates independently of any governmental intervention, may create significantly greater volatility.

Bitcoin = New Gold?

Could Bitcoin, a digital currency, really give Gold a run for its money? Surprisingly, the two have a lot in common: both are mined, one digitally and one physically; both are finite; and, neither is tied to a printable currency. So, could cryptocurrencies be an equally good investment as Gold? 

History of Bitcoin

In January 2009, Bitcoin was launched, becoming the first decentralised currency or cryptocurrency. Discover what led up to the launch of the world’s most well-known cryptocurrency, when the first transaction took place, how the Bitcoin exchange was formed and much more.

4 Benefits of Bitcoin CFDs

  • The value of Bitcoin is entirely dependent on supply and demand and is free of any governmental influence.
  • Bitcoin tends to see greater volatility than forex, which can create more high-risk trading conditions and opportunities.
  • You can trade Bitcoin CFDs directly from your easyMarkets trading platform and easily monitor your trading activity. 
  • Trading CFDs, rather than buying actual Bitcoins, means that you can trade a greater number of Bitcoins using leverage.
