What you should know about cryptocurrencies
Bill Gates
Co-founder of Microsoft, American business magnate
Bitcoin is better than currency in that you don’t have to be physically in the same place and, of course, for large transactions, currency can get pretty inconvenient.
Mike Novogratz
Former hedge fund manager at Fortress Investment Group and a Goldman Sachs partner
Ten percent of my net worth is in this space. It’s the best investment of my life.

What Is a Cryptocurrency?

A cryptocurrency like bitcoin is a virtual currency traded peer-to-peer on a blockchain, independent of centralized authorities like banks and governments. Cryptocurrencies are entirely virtual, so they are not backed by physical commodities and have no intrinsic value.

How Do Cryptocurrencies Work?

Primarily, cryptocurrencies rely on blockchain technology to complete a transaction via an intricate P2P network. Once a transfer request is entered into the network, it is validated by the network and added to a pool of other transactions to create a block of data for the ledger, which is then entered into the existing blockchain. Once the block is successfully added to the chain, the transaction is approved and completed.

Are There Investment Opportunities with Cryptocurrencies?

Absolutely. Cryptocurrencies have become established investment commodities among major financial institutions and have even been adopted by countries such as Australia and Japan. As with any investment though, there are risks linked to market movements, high volatility and economics.
Risk Warning
The Financial Products offered by the company include Contracts for Difference ('CFDs') and other complex financial products. Trading CFDs carries a high level of risk since leverage can work both to your advantage and disadvantage. As a result, CFDs may not be suitable for all investors because it is possible to lose all of your invested capital. You should never invest money that you cannot afford to lose. Before trading in the complex financial products offered, please ensure to understand the risks involved.
