However, although not being directly controlled by a central authority, as its popularity increases, cryptocurrency is facing greater scrutiny and increased regulation from governments around the world.

Despite being relatively unheard of ten years ago, cryptocurrency has attracted significant global attention in recent years and even became legal tender in El Salvador in September 2021.

When people think about cryptocurrency, they usually think of Bitcoin, so much so that, to many, the terms Bitcoin and crypto are synonymous. However, this is not the case.

Whilst Bitcoin may be the most popular type of cryptocurrency, it is certainly not the only one, and traders should avoid making the mistake that Bitcoin and crypto are one and the same. Other popular types of crypto include Ethereum, XRP, Cardano and Dogecoin.

However, trading crypto CFDs allows traders to attempt to profit from both rising and falling cryptocurrency prices which, given the historic volatility of crypto, provides many more trading opportunities. Nevertheless, it is important to bear in mind that, as well as increased trading opportunities, volatility brings a significant increase in risk.

By trading crypto CFDs, traders never actually own the underlying cryptocurrency and trades are usually executed instantaneously at the market value. Moreover, trading crypto using CFDs means traders benefit from the use of leverage, which can magnify potential profits. However, leverage must be used with caution, as it will also magnify losses when the market moves against you.

Many brokers don’t charge commission fees for trading crypto CFDs. However, traders will need to consider the spread and, if they want to maintain a position over night, they will be charged swap fees.

As with the majority of assets, any profits made from trading crypto may be liable to capital gains tax, regardless of whether you trade using crypto CFDs or buy cryptocurrency and then sell it for a profit - although some tax authorities may allow you to deduct your losses from capital gains.

In order to ensure you understand and comply correctly with tax on cryptocurrency, it is important that you check the specific requirements with your local tax authority.

The presence of increased volatility provides traders with many more opportunities to potentially profit from going both long and short, with some traders thriving in volatile market conditions.

However, increased volatility also significantly increases the risks associated with trading. Therefore, for those trading crypto, it is especially important to develop and implement a sound risk management strategy.

Please be aware that the pricing of digital currency CFDs, such as BTCEUR, ETHEUR and others, is derived from specific digital currency exchanges, which means that the market depth is limited to what is available in the order books of such exchanges. These exchanges are not regulated and do not provide the protections afforded by financial regulation. These markets are immature, extremely volatile at all times and limited in terms of liquidity. The pricing engines of digital currency exchanges may experience delays, interruptions which can be caused by numerous potential issues. Any person wishing to trade or invest in digital currency CFDs should have detailed and updated knowledge of related blockchain technologies. Trading and investing in digital currency CFDs involves a HIGH RISK of a loss of funds due to market volatility, execution issues and industry-specific disruptive events, such as hard forks, regulatory bans, the activities of hackers, mining cartels and other malicious actors within digital currency ecosystems.
