Cryptocurrencies

A cryptocurrency is a digitally-encrypted, decentralized currency that is not connected to or controlled by any government or central bank. Unlike traditional currencies such as the US dollar (issued by the Federal Reserve), euro (European Central Bank), or Japanese yen (Bank of Japan), cryptos are entirely digital.
 Cryptocurrencies generally fill two primary roles:
  • Payment system for goods and systems
  • Speculative instruments for trading and investing
Exchange-traded virtual currency contracts are available through our affiliate FuturesOnline, additional information regarding the specific products can be found on the FuturesOnline website.
