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.

 Wide choice of cryptocurrencies on IQ Option trading platform
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).

Don’t forget to follow our blog and never miss important cryptocurrency-related news again. Take advantage of several technical analysis indicators and graphical tools. Both advanced and novice traders will find them useful when making their investment decisions.

Optional: you can also set a stop loss/take profit order in order to automate your trading activities. In this case, when the price action reaches a certain level, your trade will close automatically. Or you can simply monitor the asset price in real-time and close your trades manually. IQ Option is offering a wide range of cryptocurrencies to choose from, including bitcoin,  Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, Dash and Ripple. Additional cryptos can be expected to make their way to the platform in the foreseeable future.
