What is Cryptocurrency CFD Trading?

Cryptocurrencies are digital currencies which are not controlled by banks or individual countries. The first cryptocurrency introduced to the market was Bitcoin, back in 2008, and is still the largest today.
Other notable cryptocurrencies include Ripple, Litecoin and Ethereum to name a few. When trading on cryptocurrency CFDs, you speculate on the price movement; buy if you think the value will rise and sell if you think it will fall.
You can trade crypto CFDs against each other or against conventional currencies, such as EUR and USD.
