Cryptocurrencies

One of the most well-known cryptocurrencies is Bitcoin, while other prominent cryptos include Ethereum, Ripple, Litecoin, and Monero. Cryptocurrencies were traditionally using specialised exchanges, but as the crypto market grows, financial insitutions have taken steps to permit the exchange of securities that track cryptocurrency movements.

Two examples of this are the Bitcoin and Ethereum exchange-traded notes listed on the Nasdaq OMX Stock Exchange. These offer investors exposure to Bitcoin and Ethereum in a familiar, secure, and regulated exchange environment. These instruments are available via the Saxo Trader platform.

Cryptocurrency markets can be extremely volatile with cryptos vulnerable to speculation, regulatory shifts, and dramatic events pertaining to the major cryptocurrency exchanges, up to and including closure. Saxo’s Bitcoin and Ethereum ETN offerings allow traders indirect exposure to the two largest cryptocurrencies by market capitalisation while retaining the security of a conventional exchange-listed product.

Saxo Group's strategy team team provide expert analysis of cryptocurrency trends with a focus on regulation, technical analysis, market capitalisation, and news in the crypto space. As this asset class continues to mature, Saxo will continually review its offerings to ensure investors enjoy access to a variety of instruments featuring high levels of security and transparency.

Cryptocurrencies are digital currencies based on blockchain technology. A blockchain is a digital ledger whose entries are secured using cryptography. These ledgers, or lists of records, are used to determine the creation of cryptocurrency units as well as to store data regarding transfers and purchases.
