Take advantage of rising and falling markets
Don't limit yourself to bull markets. Go long or short and trade the market in either direction.
Increase your buying power
Trade Crypto FX pairs with leverage to increase your purchasing power and maximise your exposure to potential gains. Please note that leverage also amplifies potential losses as well as gains.
Crypto ETFs and ETNs
The simple way to diversify your portfolio with crypto
Invest over the long-term with crypto ETFs and ETNs. Buy and hold just like you would with stocks. We offer ETNs and ETFs on bitcoin, ethereum, ripple, tezos and others.
A more cost-efficient way to buy and hold
Avoid interest and roll-over fees with ETFs and ETNs, if you want to make cryptocurrencies a long-term component of your portfolio.
Manage your risk
Crypto markets can be notoriously volatile. ETFs and ETNs aren't traded with leverage, so you can’t lose more than you invest, even in the event of a drop in crypto prices.
