« on: March 06, 2018, 04:34:22 PM »
IS crypto trading still alive? I mean anybody sees possible opportunity after recent drawdown? If yes, which broker did you choose to trade them?

Cryptocurrency trading isn't going anywhere, but volumes are low right now as the market continues a depressed downward direction.

Popular cryptocurrency exchanges I can think of off the top of my head include, but are not limited to,

- GDAX (CoinBase's spinoff company)
- Gemini Exchange (Operated by the Winklevoss twins)
- Kraken FX (San' Fran' based with global operations)
- Bitfinex (Largest exchange I believe)
- Quadriga CX (Canadian)
- CoinSquare.io (Canadian)
- Koinex (Indian I think?)
- HitBTC (Chinese I think with global operations)
- BiBox (Also chinese I think?)

and I'm sure there are many more. In fact now that I think about it, if you want to take a look at a list of active exchanges, you can go to the following link which displays crypto exchanges by 24 hour volume for specific currencies.

Most mainstream FX brokers are offering CFDs to long and short these instruments. I'm not sure what kind of guidance to offer you there aside from a little googling. Like I know Pepperstone and ICM both offer multiple crypto currencies to trade CFDs on. I haven't actually done any of that though because the CFDs are often pretty inflexible with low leverage requirements and minimum contract sizes that are pretty big.

Hi,
If you wanna to use an MT4/MT5 UI, i'm currently "testing" JAFX (https://www.jafx.com/).
They claim to use the Bitfinex dataflow in a partnership.

note : I've no relationship with them.

More interesting is what those brokers like jafx, Hotforex use as their counterparty for execution BTC trades (include short sales without holding bitcoins)

Generally they are Prime LPs, they have higher min requirements (deposit) for trading so retail brokers serve a function of aggregation of small orders into bigger one

Yes, crypto is still alive :) And now waked up. Wait tothemoon.
Well, I heard Amarkets provides an ability to trade crypto such as ripple, BTC or eth. I guess soon they add some new currency because it's really interesting and profitable.
