After months of fine tuning the project concept with independent professionals, auditors and approval from the side of the Swiss financial regulator FINMA, Dukascopy Bank SA is ready to publish the document clearly describing the goals of the first cryptocurrency by a regulated Swiss bank and methods how the bank is planning to achieve those goals.

Leverage will be reduced to 1:30 for GBR.IDX/GBP, BRENT.CMD/USD, LIGHT.CMD/USD and GBP related FX instruments. It applies to all trading accounts without exception as of Friday 11-Jan-2019 at 18:00 GMT.
We expect an increase in volatility and risk of gaps for these instruments in view of the British parliamentary vote. It is scheduled for Tuesday 15-Jan-2019 to approve or reject the Brexit proposal that prime minister May has negotiated with EU member states.
The reduced leverage shall remain in place until Dukascopy Bank has decided that market volatility has returned to acceptable levels. We estimate to return to normal conditions on Wednesday 16-Jan-2019.

Preparing the launch of Dukascoins ICO, Dukascopy Bank (or "the Bank") announces the Live testing of its crypto-funding functionality, which is an important element of the infrastructure built by the Bank for operating with crypto-currencies.
What does crypto-funding stand for? This is the bridge between the client’s account with Dukascopy Bank and a crypto-currency wallet of that client in blockchain. The new functionality allows the Bank’s customers to deposit and withdraw funds to/from their crypto-fundable accounts with the Bank in the form of crypto-currency transfers. In the framework of that service, top-ups and withdrawals are possible only from/to a blockchain wallet where the client is the sole owner.
Dukascopy Bank is launching a brand-new Contest that is going to be conducted on LIVE trading accounts: LIVE FX Trader Contest!
Simplicity is a cornerstone of the contest: ACHIEVE HIGHEST WEEKLY PROFITABILITY TO WIN.
The other key novation is that rewards are free from any limitations: 1,050 USD is paid every week to 12 participants and the winner takes 300 USD. Gained profit will remain on trader’s account as well.
For more information, please read here. Contest is open starting of October 15.
Continuing infrastructural preparation for its own ICO for cryptocurrencies on Ethereum blockchain, Dukascopy Bank starts trading operations on Ether to US dollar (ETH/USD) CFD. Starting from today trading on ETH/USD CFD is available for Dukascopy Bank and Dukascopy Europe self-trading accounts. ETH/USD trading conditions are similar to BTC/USD. The applicable leverage for this CFD type will be 1:3 in Dukascopy Bank and due to ESMA regulation 1:2 in Dukascopy Europe. More information is available on the corresponding webpages.
Except for marginal trading operations, Ether will be available for clients with Mobile Current Account (MCA). They will be able to hold Ether on their Dukascopy Bank accounts and transfer it to other MCA clients. Same as Bitcoin, transfers of Ether CFD between MCA clients will be instant and free of charge.
The next important element of the bank crypto infrastructure is to provide withdrawals and deposits for MCA and trading accounts by means of cryptocurrencies which is expected in the near future. Crypto funding means that clients of Dukascopy Bank will be able to transfer funds to/from the bank not only in FIAT currencies, but also in crypto currencies to/from their crypto wallets. At first the bank will test the crypto funding concept on bitcoin. The crypto funding element should become a significant part of Dukascopy's infrastructure which later will be used also for its own cryptocurrencies.The ICO of Dukascoins/Dukasnotes is subject to a green light from the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA).
