Cryptocurrency
Deriv's 31 crypto CFDs are traded in pairs with USD and leverage up to 1:2. Multipliers are available on the BTC/USD and ETH/USD pairs. We like that crypto traders also get access to the powerful MT5 platform. Fortrade offers CFD trading on the largest cryptos by market cap paired with USD. Crypto CFD availability depends on local regulations and they are not offered in jurisdictions including the UK due to restrictions.
