How to Buy and Sell Crypto

Cryptocurrency is probably the most important technological innovation of the last decade. Bitcoin, the world’s premiere cryptocurrency that is up 1780% this year, has already been announced the financial blockbuster of 2017. As a client of IQ Option, you will trade cryptocurrencies without experiencing the downsides of online exchanges.

The latter are neither stable, nor reliable and often create bottlenecks. IQ Option, being a certified broker, offers you the opportunity to open both long and short positions in a fast and secure manner, store assets using cold storage, all while enjoying the user-friendly interface.

Choose from the list of 12 most popular cryptocurrencies

In order to buy or sell cryptocurrencies, pick the coin of your choice from the list of available crypto assets. Other platforms often make cryptocurrency trading overcomplicated, which is obviously not the case for IQ Option. After choosing the asset all you have to do is enter the desired amount of money and set up stop loss/take profit orders (in case you favor autonomous trading).

Take advantage of several technical analysis indicators and graphical tools. Both advanced and novice traders will find them useful when making their investment decisions.
