Understanding Ethereum

Ethereum is known to be a digital platform where a wide variety of applications can be made, including methods of payment, security programs, and identity software. Therefore, while cryptocurrency itself is usually called ethereum, its name which is more accurate is ether. Same as a regular currency, someone is capable of owning, exchanging, or speculating on ether. As it is virtual, however, the currency is operating outside of a central authority, like a government or a bank.

How Can Someone Trade the CFDs on Ethereum?

For someone to trade the token of ethereum, ether, they are required to have access to an exchange, together with a virtual wallet, and that can take several days to get. But when someone trades the CFDs on ether, they never own the cryptocurrency. That means all that someone needs is a trading account of Crypto77, which takes only minutes to set up.

On our trading platform, people will always see ether being quoted against another currency, like the dollar. Instead of taking actual ownership when someone opens a position, they are instead thinking about the rise and fall of cryptocurrency in value against other currency. If they are correct, they will make a profit, if they are not, they will only ever require putting down a little deposit to get exposure to the entire value of the trade. That means their capital goes further, but they also stand losing more than their original outlay.

People could use CFDs to open short and long positions, with spreads that start from just two points. People can trade ethereum on all our platforms, which include MT5.
