CFD Trading accounts are leveraged products and can result in losses that exceed your deposits. They may not be suitable for everyone. Please ensure you fully understand the risks and seek independent advice. Our tables are suitable for experienced investors only.

Yes, but before you start crypto CFD trading, you need to find a cryptocurrency trading platform.

This comparison only shows CFD platforms that let you trade on cryptocurrencies, but some may also let you trade on forex too.

As with all CFD trades, you are betting on the change in value of the underlying asset, in this case cryptocurrencies, and you therefore do not ever own the asset.

Find a cryptocurrency trading platform

To find the best cryptocurrency trading platform from our selection of providers, you should consider:

  • If the cryptocurrency you want to trade is available

  • If there are any charges, like annual platform fees

  • The size of the spread, which is the difference between the buy and sell price

  • The margin, to see what level of leverage you can use

You should look for a cryptocurrency CFD broker that offers a platform with the features you want. You may be able to use a demo account, which lets you try the platform so you can make sure you are comfortable using it.

You can compare CFD platforms by the spread they offer on the cryptocurrency you want to trade on, such as Bitcoin.
