Since 2009 when Bitcoin was first created, cryptocurrencies have been on the rise, in both value and popularity. Built off of blockchain technology, cryptocurrencies have caused waves within the financial world and have gained attention from central banks, financial institutions, and individuals across the world.
Bitcoin is a decentralised digital payment system. This means that peer-to-peer transfers can be made without the need of a central bank or intermediary. Instead, each transaction is verified by a network of nodes and recorded in a public ledger called a blockchain. Bitcoin can currently be exchanged for fiat currencies, products, and services.
- Since the beginning of 2016 the cryptocurrency market has grown more than 20 times
- Cryptocurrencies enable fast and cheap peer-to-peer transactions
- Daily active users have grown from 0.8m in 2013 to over 4m in 2017
- Average daily transactions have more than tripled since 2015
BlackBull Markets is now offering you access to the growth of Bitcoin through a CFD of Bitcoin against the USD (BTC/USD). This tracks the price of Bitcoin and allows you to take advantage of price movements without the need to own a Bitcoin Wallet or the underlying Bitcoin. Cryptocurrencies offer a new type of financial instrument to invest in, and as such they offer you diversification and exposure to an entirely different market.
You can trade our BTC/USD pair with any of our accounts, live and demo.
