What is a Cryptocurrency?

Cryptocurrency is a digital asset (currency) that can be virtually generated and traded between individuals and businesses. Cryptocurrency market does not belong to any central bank, governmental or financial institution. In general, cryptocurrency is an electronic intangible currency, and its value is formed from common people. Trading CFDs (Contracts for Difference) for Cryptocurrency allows you to trade on the cryptocurrency market with no need to purchase any of the digital currencies. The principle of such trading is quite simple: what you invest in is the performance of the price of an asset you choose to trade with.


The principle of buying low and selling high in order to profit is common for all the financial markets, and the Cryptocurrency market is no exception.

For example:

You buy 2 Bitcoins at $11,086.02 per unit (using our leverage).
After one week of trading with BTCUSD you decide to sell it and receive $1,896.98 of profit.
A week after you opened your position, Bitcoin was quoted at $12,034.51 (Bid price) to 12,075.21 (Ask price).
You bought 2 units and paid $22,172.04.
You sold 2 units and got $24,069.02.
Your profit is $1,896.98.

How is it possible?

You did not really purchase Bitcoins or sold them. You used our cryptocurrencies leverage to invest into the market performance of the cryptocurrency and got the profit of its price fluctuations.
