FXOpen UK's unique offering lets you trade Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum, Namecoin and Peercoin against USD, EUR or GBP in a true ECN environment!

Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum and Namecoin have prove to have great potential for investment and speculation, due to their high volatility and dramatic price moves.

Unlike other brokers, who offer cryptocurrency trading in the form of CFDs or binary options, FXOpen UK lets you trade Bitcoin, Namecoin, Litecoin and Ethereum directly against the British Pound, US Dollar or Euro. Our order execution is based on our ECN Aggregator – FXOpen's proprietary technology with proven excellent performance over several years.

You can now trade cryptocurrencies and enjoy all the benefits of ECN execution and most importantly you are trading against other market participants, not against the broker. There is no conflict of interest between you and the broker. The trading network is formed by buy and sell orders from all participants and the ECN Aggregator processes all buy and sell orders that are currently available on the market giving you the best prices and seamless execution.

You get the tight market spread and low trading commissions, while the broker benefits as your traded volume and profits grow. All popular Forex trading styles including scalping, hedging and all types of expert advisors are allowed. Available leverage is  1:3.
