What are Cryptocurrencies?
Cryptocurrency is a digital representation of value that can be digitally traded, or transferred, and can be used for payment or investment purposes.
At S.A.M. Trade, we offer Cryptocurrencies CFDs, where a buyer and a seller agree to pay in cash any difference in prices as the value of the cryptocurrency rises or falls, instead of buying the underlying asset itself. One of the biggest advantages of choosing to trade CFDs is the leverage it offers. It allows you to hold larger positions than you would if you were to buy the cryptocurrency itself. This means that there is potential for higher profits too. However, the risk is that the losses would also be higher if your predictions fail to play out.
Bitcoin is a form of cryptocurrency that was created in 2009, following the ideas set out by Satoshi Nakamoto where balance are kept on public ledger with full transparency to everyone. All bitcoin transactions are verified by computing power and is not issued, backed by any banks or government. Bitcoin has gained popularity over the years and is now the world's largest cryptocurrency by market capitalisation.
Ethereum is an open source blockchain, which contains blocks of data (transactions and smart contracts) and is a public, permissionless network. Ethereum has an inbuilt cryptocurrency called Ether (ETH) that can be traded for other cryptocurrencies like BTC, and is the 2nd largest cryptocurrency by market capitalisation.
Litecoin dubbed as a “altcoin” was designed to be a replica of Bitcoin with some moderate changes. It was to excel in certain areas such as the ability to be used for smaller transactions, hence, it is easier to be used daily. It isn’t currently used by mainstream corporations as a form of payment, but it has the potential to be widely embraced in the future.
