How Do Cryptocurrencies Work?

With the Cryptocurrency* trade feature you can exchange your Fiat or Bitcoin balance against one or more of theavailable cryptocurrencies and profit from the price fluctuations:

You can make an exchange by creating an instant, conditional or recurring order.

You have also the possibility to set an alert for when a certain price level is reached.

Within the Market data tab of the Trade section you can consult an overview of all supported cryptocurrencies showing their real-time price and 24-hour price percentage change. This can help you to best choose the currency, the time and the price for your exchange.
