What are Bitcoin Futures?
In general, futures are agreements to buy or sell specific assets on a specified future date at a set price. Your CFD on the Bitcoin Futures contract will be based on CME Bitcoin Futures. The Bitcoin Futures will settle in cash and the underlying cryptocurrency (Bitcoin) itself will not be delivered, meaning that you can trade Bitcoin Futures without risks associated with owning actual Bitcoins.

What is cryptocurrency (“Crypto”)?

Cryptocurrency is a virtual asset serving as a digital medium of exchange.

Bitcoin was the first cryptocurrency with its own symbol and rate in 2009. Later, more and more types of cryptocurrencies like Ethereum and Litecoin were added and their use worldwide started to become more widespread. Public interest in them has increased steadily over the years and they are highly tradeable assets due to their volatile characteristics.

What is the difference between real cryptocurrency and cryptocurrency CFDs?

Purchasing cryptocurrencies often involves setting up accounts or Virtual Wallets with specialist exchange sites. It could mean you have to manage different currencies across a number of unregulated exchange sites and pay high conversion fees on each one. 

With Markets.com you trade Contracts for Difference (“CFDs”). CFDs allow you to go long or short on an asset without actually owning it. We offer a few cryptocurrency CFDs which means you can manage your portfolio in one place. Markets.com is operated by SafeCap Investments Ltd which is fully regulated by CySEC.
