About Ethereum

Ethereum (ETH) is the most actively used blockchain in the world. It is ranked #2 in terms of cryptocurrency market capitalization, sitting behind bitcoin. Ethereum is decentralized, meaning a network of participants is required to validate transactions (compared to a financial institution authorizing transactions). The technology behind Ethereum (blockchain + smart contracts) is open source and maintained by contributors across the world. Unlike bitcoin, ethereum's total supply is uncapped. Over 100m ether exist in circulation and new ethereum tokens are continually created.

How to Trade Ethereum

Are you looking to long or short Ethereum?

Cryptocurrency exchanges are the most common way to trade ethereum as a digital asset. Most exchanges are unregulated and traders should be mindful of the risk of hacks and mishandling of funds.
CFDs (Contracts for Difference) allow traders to gain exposure to price movements in ethereum without physically holding ethereum. A trader can buy ethereum CFDs to benefit from a price rise, or short sell ethereum CFDs to benefit from a price fall, never needing to hold the physical asset.
After careful evaluation of several CFD exchanges, we recommend Plus500 for their
CFD Service. Your capital is at risk. CFDs are exciting and innovative, but as with all financial instruments, it is important to understand the risks.
