Why You should consider trading cryptocurrencies

Trading cryptocurrencies can be a highly profitable experience. Due to the speculative nature of the asset class, the price of digital assets can be highly volatile and fluctuate greatly within certain timeframes. It’s not uncommon to see cryptocurrencies rise and fall as much as 20% in a single day or from week to week.

High profit potential

Traders choose cryptocurrencies because of higher volatility and increased potential profits on successful trades.

How does cryptocurrency margin trading work?

When traders decide to use margin trading for cryptocurrencies they will essentially borrow funds from the platform to increase the buying or selling power of their trade. Margin trading means that traders are only required to deposit a small percentage of the total value of a position.

In other words, on the LiveTrader platform, traders will be able to trade positions bigger than the capital they deposit, in order to increase profitability. Note, that margin trading can magnify your potential profit – but also your potential loss.

The benefits of cryptocurrency trading with leverage

Magnified profits

This leveraged margin trade then allows you to receive higher profits if the position goes the right way. However, the risk is that if the trade is unsuccessful the losses can be magnified too.

Portfolio diversification

By margin trading the trader is not forced to put too much of their capital into one trade. It allows for the remaining capital to be diversified around other trades and markets.

Gaining from the market fall

When trading on margin, traders can profit from a falling market by opening a short position, meaning they have the intent to sell high and buy back low.

Cryptocurrency leverage trading example

If a trader takes a short position of 10,000 XRP on 10x leverage, and the price of Ripple falls 3% the trader will earn a profit of 300 XRP. A similar spot trade without leverage would result in only 30 XRP earned.

Disclaimer: Margin trading also comes with inherent risks if the position moves against the trade. You should never utilize 100% leverage and never invest more than you can afford to lose.

What is cryptocurrency?

Cryptocurrency is one of the most revolutionary technologies of the early 21st century, with an origin story, history and explosion into the public consciousness that rivals many other inventions that came before it. In 2008, a research paper from an anonymous individual or group known as “Satoshi Nakamoto” was released.

Nakamoto’s newly created computational data structure called “blockchain” was based on making sure no one party had central control over the system. As a result, it would allow for people around the world to transfer value without needing to trust each other, and without needing an authority to manage the system.

This new type of virtual currency was named “cryptocurrency” by its creator, and in the same research paper that described blockchain technology, the design of the first cryptocurrency called “Bitcoin” was also explained. Although today there are more than 3,000 cryptocurrencies in use around the world, Bitcoin held more than 90% of the total value of all cryptocurrencies for many years and was one of only a small handful in existence.
