Crypto CFD Advantages and disadvantages

Crypto CFD Pros

  • Access to the underlying asset for only a fraction of the price. You do not need to buy an asset outright but get the full profit (or loss) from your position.
  • Moreover, in a CFD you do not actually have to buy cryptocurrency at all. No problems with exchanges, transfers and keeping the digital coins.
  • Flexibility. With CFDs traders can go both long and short, while it is not always possible with spot trading.

Crypto CFD Cons

  • In volatile markets, a difference between bid and ask price will be higher, which will lead to less profit because brokers require higher fees.
  • Not actually owning a cryptocurrency can also be seen as a minus. Holding strategy won’t work here, as CDFs are only suitable for trading.
  • Not all pairs and coins are supported by brokers.
