Dukascopy provides leveraged CFD trading on price movements of cryptocurrencies, its derivatives or value estimations.

Unlike traditional purchase of cryptocurrencies trading cryptocurrency CFDs (Crypto) allow speculative operations without having a digital wallet. There is no need to own cryptocurrency coins, which reduces cyber security risks.

Due to the leverage provided on trading accounts clients can hold cryptocurrency CFD positions larger than the amount of traditional currency initially owned.

Similar to other CFDs and FX instruments, cryptocurrency CFD can be short or long so the client can benefit from price movements in both directions, up and down.
