What is Crypto Trading?

Crypto Trading is a form of trading in which we open or close trade positions based on price direction of a particular cryptocurrency against other currencies like the US dollar or any other cryptocurrency. What it simply means is exchanging one currency for another, for e.g., if we will buy (bitcoin from fiat currencies) or sell (sell bitcoin to get fiat currencies or other cryptos) a particular cryptocurrency against any other currency. There are trading pairs, for e.g., BTC/USD, in this trading pair, if we buy bitcoin, we will use our US dollar to buy bitcoin, so we get bitcoin in exchange for USD. Selling is the opposite, in that we will sell bitcoin to get US dollar instead.

In the above paragraph, we learnt about spot trading, which is profitable in the long term, but if you want to magnify your profits and earn way more than spot trading, then there is CFD (Contract for Difference) based trading, in which you can predict the price will go up or down and also magnify your profits with the use of leverage, let’s discuss more contract trading now!

In contract based trading, if you buy, it means you predict the price will go up, and if you sell, you predict the price will go down. Here we can use leverage, which means borrowing money from the platform that we are using to trade, for e.g., let’s say you start a trade for $10 with 10x leverage, then you will actually trade with $100 and make more profit, with 10x leverage if the price goes up by 10% you can get a 100% profit! But at the same time, if the price goes the opposite of what you predicted, 10% will rip all your money off! That’s why leverage trading must be done very carefully to be safe.

Now, hopefully, the above two paragraphs would have given you a brief overview of What is Crypto Trading?
