What is Bitcoin CFD Trading?

When most people think of cryptocurrency, they think of Bitcoin. That’s because it was the first one to be developed and the one that’s appeared most in the headlines since. In 2009 a programmer (or a group of programmers) using the name ‘Satoshi Nakamoto’ introduced Bitcoin to the world along with its decentralised, public ledger blockchain.

Bitcoin prices skyrocketed to record-breaking heights in December 2017, reaching almost $20,000 before falling back down. Bitcoin enthusiasts remain hopeful that its price will reach a similar threshold again. More cautious investors adopt a wait-and-see approach, speculating that the coin will find a stable price once interest has steadied and users grow more confident.

This uncertainty makes CFDs a particularly suitable financial product for Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. Trading Bitcoin CFDs means that you don’t need to invest in the actual asset – you can instead make a judgement on which direction the price will go. You also don’t have to worry about insecurity; you are protected from the scams sometimes associated with crypto’s, while still enjoying the opportunity to profit from its success.
