Bitcoin Why Trade Bitcoin?

The most renowned of the cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin took off in 2017 to double its value. Investors have backed Bitcoin on a buying spree rarely seen before in the financial markets, though the crypto is prone to volatility as the same investors withdraw support and then reextend their efforts. This volatility is the ideal environment for CFD traders who do not buy the asset but trade on the movement of the underlying instrument. Bitcoin has seen major movements due to:

  • China participating in a Bitcoin uptake race
  • The Bitcoin Scaling Agreement is increasing transaction capacity
  • Japan legalizing Bitcoin
  • Attention from US institutional investors

Ethereum Why Trade Ethereum?

Almost mirroring Bitcoin, Ethereum has also gone through surges and depreciation as the markets favour the asset one day and withdraw the next. Ethereum however originates from a different technology and focusses on smart contracts rather than the Bitcoin payment system. In the past year Ethereum had made gains of 2,300% with movement dependent on issues such as:

  • Microsoft & JPMorgan supporting Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (EEA)
  • Russia reviewing Ethereum’s blockchain technology
  • Higher interest from major tech players like Microsoft and Intel.
  • Talk of future regulation to limit opportunities for abuse on cryptocurrencies

Litecoin Why Trade Litecoin?

The popularity of Litecoin wallets and services available to assist in storing and making Litecoin transactions on a phone or computer has enabled it to gain third place in the crypto list. In fact, the 24-hour trading volume has already crossed $1 billion market cap for the first time in July 2017. Of course, Litecoin is prone to similar trends as other cryptocurrencies but the recent surge in interest has been fired by:

  • One of the largest cryptocurrency exchanges, Coinbase, adding support for Litecoin
  • A scaling solution called Segwit was implemented to plan for Litecoin’s progress over the next years
  • Bitgo support in a Litcoin security solution resulting in the acceptance of Litecoin on more exchanges

Dash Why Trade Dash?

The last but certainly not the least crypto on TRADE.com is Dash, which joins the asset group at a comparative price point to Bitcoin and Ethereum. Dash blockchain technology is focused on privacy and is becoming more popular with a market cap that has surged to over $1 billion. Approval from the market and solutions for the future are presenting traders with opportunities on Dash:

  • Dash 12.1 launched with secondary announcement of new alpha version of Evolution to be launched toward the end of 2017
  • Development of a new type of wallet with SPV security and browser compatibility to connect directly to P2P network
  • Blockchain technology gaining more traction in China with first hosting conference set for Beijing
