What are cryptocurrencies?

Cryptocurrencies, or cryptos, are forms of digital, decentralized money not regulated by a government or central bank. Instead, cryptos use encryption techniques to generate, regulate and transfer their units. Cryptocurrencies are often held in virtual online wallets and used for peer-to-peer transactions or online stores that accept them.

Cryptocurrency Trading:

Cryptocurrency CFDs are complex, extremely risky and usually highly speculative. Trading in Cryptocurrency CFDs involves a high risk of loss of funds over a short period of time due to high market volatility, execution issues and industry-specific disruptive events, including, but not limited to, discontinuation, regulatory bans and other malicious actors within cryptocurrency ecosystems. The pricing of Cryptocurrency CFDs might be derived from specific cryptocurrency exchanges, which means that the market depth is limited to what is available in the order books of such exchanges. These markets are relatively new and thus might be volatile and limited in terms of liquidity. The pricing engines of cryptocurrency exchanges may experience delays and/or interruptions which can be caused by numerous potential issues. Cryptocurrency CFD trading is not appropriate for all investors and therefore, any person wishing to trade in Cryptocurrency CFDs should have detailed and updated knowledge and expertise in these specific products. Clients should always be fully aware and understand the specific characteristics and risks related to these products as laid down in this section.
