What is Cryptocurrency?

A cryptocurrency is a digital or virtual currency designed to work as a medium of exchange between two parties. It uses a technology called Blockchain to secure and verify transactions.

Although cryptocurrencies are digital currencies which operate independently of banks and governments, they can still be transacted, exchanged, bought, sold and speculated on, just like any physical currency.

Cryptocurrencies are able to be purchased through unregulated overseas exchanges which can present some real risks to your asset purchase. However, trading cryptocurrency CFDs through easyMarkets presents a safe alternative option for trading for profit without the risks attached to unregulated exchanges.

What is the difference between trading cryptocurrency CFDs and buying cryptocurrency?

There are two main ways to trade cryptocurrency:

  • Using traditional exchanges, you can buy them in the hope of selling them at a profit. However, this process is complex, requires you to buy an actual coin amount at market value, and you only make a profit when you sell and someone else buys your coin off you. In a falling market, this strategy may fail if you can't sell your coins.
  • Trading with easyMarkets CFDs allows you to purchase a market position on a coin at market value, without actually owning the coin. Instead of having to sell your coin to make a profit, you can simply close your position effective immediately. A buyer of your coin is not required, and you can walk away with your profits in seconds, rather than waiting for a buyer to purchase.
