How Do Cryptocurrencies Work?

With the Cryptocurrency* trade feature you can exchange your Fiat or Bitcoin balance against one or more of the available 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 DASHBOARD tab of the CRYPTO section of your account you can consult an overview of the 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. You can also consult and manage your created alerts, conditional and recurring orders.
