Cryptocurrencies – the essentials

Cryptocurrencies are digital coins, functioning as mediums of exchange. People can transfer them between each other, without any intermediaries and any interference of central banks or any other financial institution. Anyone can find all these transactions recorded on a public ledger called the blockchain.


Cryptos are created through mining, the process of verification of every transaction and maintaining the blockchain populated.


Initially, you could only buy them on exchanges, using a digital wallet for storage until you wanted to start selling. That’s until trading CFDs on cryptos started emerging.

CFDs and crypto trading

CFDs are financial products that allow you to anticipate whether prices will move up or down on underlying instruments, including cryptocurrencies. You don’t own these underlying instruments; you trade the direction you assume prices will go. Trading CFDs takes place on dedicated platforms made available by brokers.


So, when trading CFDs on cryptos, you can either go long or short for your trading approach, depending on what you expect to happen to the price. On regular exchanges, you could only buy (go long) a specific amount of your favorite digital coins and hold it before selling if prices go up.


Also, when trading crypto CFDs you can use leverage to open positions with less capital, but also with increased risks. For managing your risks and keeping your investment under more control, you have access to market orders such as stop loss or take profit.

Factors influencing crypto prices


Any regulation change can impact cryptos. For example, if the governments adopt stricter regulatory measures, BTC prices can be affected.

Supply and Demand

The bigger or the smaller a crypto supply gets, given a certain demand, the more it can impact prices. If a crypto supply becomes scarce, prices could go up.


The more Bitcoin is adopted as an alternative method of payment, the better for its valuation. The reverse is also valid.

Crypto news and market sentiment

News and market sentiment, such as an increased trading appetite of retail speculators, usually drive price movements on Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin Spot, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin USD, Litecoin EUR, Ripple, Ethereum USD, or Ethereum EUR.
