Crypto CFD vs Crypto Spot

Monday, February 1st, 2021

Many investors and traders are familiar with the idea of trading cryptocurrencies. While trading on a crypto exchange has been more prevalent and mainstream, cryptocurrency CFDs have also emerged with growing popularity.

What is Crypto CFD?

Crypto Contract for Difference (CFD) is a contract between an investor and a CFD broker. They exchange the difference in the value of a cryptocurrency’s opening and closing price, so the trader does not own the underlying cryptocurrency. CFD Trading works by the investor speculating the price movement of the asset and deciding on a long (buy) or short (sell) position. In the case of crypto CFDs, the trader does not own the digital currency in question. Instead, he/she tries to make a profit from price movements by predicting whether his/her chosen crypto will rise or fall in value. The profit or loss is the amount of change in the value of the asset multiplied by the quantity, with a small percentage being paid to the broker as a fee for the service provided. Most brokerages offer a diverse range of CFDs including forex, indices, equities, commodities, cryptocurrencies and more.

What is Crypto Spot?

When it comes to cryptocurrencies, spot trading is the most basic type of investment you can make. This entails purchasing crypto such as Bitcoin and holding it until the value increases or using it to buy other altcoins. In the cryptocurrency spot market, investors own, buy, and sell actual crypto. In simple terms, it is the underlying market where cryptocurrencies are exchanged. Crypto exchanges are the most popular avenue for buying and selling spot crypto.

Advantages of Crypto CFDs

One of the main differences between crypto spot trading and trading crypto CFDs is the ability to use leverage with CFDs. Investors are able to take advantage of leverage to get greater rewards with CFDs by trading with a smaller capital as compared to buying it outright. For example, instead of buying Bitcoin at its full price, you only need to deposit a small percentage of the trade’s total value. This could be 20%, 5% or even less of the total transaction. As such, if you are opening a trade worth $10,000, you only need to pay a deposit of $500. However, you can still receive 100% of gains if the price moves the way you predict. With CFDs, trading can be more flexible due to much higher liquidity, allowing users to quickly get in and out, use stop loss orders and develop hedging strategies.

Advantages of Crypto Spot

Crypto Spot opens profiting opportunities from its volatility and presents a lower risk as compared to crypto CFDs due to having no leverage, resulting in users not needing to undergo the hassles of understanding and maintaining margin management. Additionally, it is more cost-effective for holding long-term positions due to having zero overnight interest swap fees (present in CFDs). The cryptocurrency that is bought can also be used in a variety of purposes, such as purchasing items and services via crypto payments.
