Why trade Crypto with Saxo?

  • Hassle-free
    Manage your Crypto trading on an easy-to-use platform and don’t worry about Crypto wallets, cold storage or recovery seeds.
  • Flexible
    Go long or short with leverage to capitalise on rapid price movements, or invest long-term in Crypto on mobile or desktop.
  • Secure
    Keep your focus on price movement. You don’t own or store the coins, so you don’t need to worry about Crypto exchange hacks or losing access.
  • Trusted
    Trade with a licensed and regulated bank that protects your funds, on a reliable platform fine-tuned over 30 years.

    Risk transparency

    Cryptocurrencies have become known for their extreme fluctuations in prices. While there is potential for significant gains, please understand the risks before investing.

    • Security
      With Crypto markets still largely unregulated, they can be prone to market manipulation. Hackers have also gained unauthorised access to digital wallets and Crypto exchanges in the past.
    • Liquidity
      Most bitcoins are held by a small number of investors, and many platforms and exchanges trade on their own books. In a sales rush, liquidity issues could leave investors sidelined with rapidly falling prices.
    • Boom or burst
      The parabolic price increases of cryptocurrencies are largely driven by speculation rather than intrinsic value. The first Crypto bubble burst spectacularly in 2018, suggesting history could repeat itself.
    • High volatility
      In 2017 Bitcoin’s value soared by more than 1,000%, before losing 80% of its value in early 2018. Since the start of 2019, it has climbed more than 800% as of January 1st 2021, spurred on by large corporations’ entry into the Crypto space.

      cfx  Crypto FX

      Take advantage of short-term volatility with leverage

      Wide choice of Crypto crosses

      Trade Bitcoin, Ethereum and more against the major fiat currencies. Trading Crypto pairs means you don’t have to exchange between currencies when it’s time to cash out. We offer BTC and ETH against USD, EUR or JPY.

      Take advantage of rising and falling markets

      Don't limit yourself to bull markets. Go long or short and trade the market in either direction.

      Increase your buying power

      Trade Crypto pairs with leverage to increase your purchasing power and maximise your exposure to potential gains. Please note that leverage also amplifies potential losses as well as gains.

      Take a long-term view with unleveraged exchange traded products, such as ETFs and ETNs

      The simple way to diversify your portfolio with Crypto

      Invest over the long-term with Crypto ETFs and ETNs. Buy and hold just like you would with stocks. We offer ETNs and ETFs on Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple, Tezos and others.

      A more cost-efficient way to buy and hold

      Avoid interest and roll-over fees with ETFs and ETNs, if you want to make cryptocurrencies a long-term component of your portfolio.

      Manage your risk

      Crypto markets can be notoriously volatile. ETFs and ETNs aren't traded with leverage, so you can’t lose more than you invest, even in the event of a drop in Crypto prices.

      Competitive and transparent prices

      See our competitive fees upfront, so you can keep more of your returns without any surprises.
