Cryptocurrency Trading

Trade Cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin, Ripple and Ethereum against USD, EUR and other Cryptocurrencies in a true ECN environment.

Cryptocurrencies have been in existence since 2008 and are digital currencies that are not controlled by individual countries or central banks. Bitcoin was the first cryptocurrency, and is still the largest, but new ones have been created including Ripple, Litecoin, Ethereum and Namecoin and can be traded against each other or conventional currencies.

You can trade cryptocurrencies as CFDs enjoying all the trading benefits of true ECN execution and our deep liquidity, without having to hold any cryptocurrency directly. All popular trading styles are welcome including scalping, hedging and all types of expert advisers.

Please note that Cryptocurrencies are considered a very high risk product due to the high levels of volatility and extreme price movements. FXOpen UK will only allow maximum leverage levels of 1:2 due to the nature of the product.
