Trade Bitcoin Online with easyMarkets
If you’ve heard of Bitcoin, you already know that cryptocurrencies are the newest and one of the most exciting asset classes to hit the global markets in years. Are you ready to trade the cryptocurrency trend?
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.
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.
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.
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.
