🎉 Cryptocurrency projects to do with the “metaverse”, NFTs, and other related functions exploded higher over the weekend, with one such project – DecentraLand, rising from $0.90 to over $4 at one point. DeCentraland itself is an Ethereum-based project (as are many “metaverse” projects), and has been open to the public (its available as a video game online) since Jan 2020.

🐋 A report from Kraken’s research arm shows that the largest Bitcoin wallets have been accumulating more BTC recently, with the number of Bitcoin whales (more than 100BTC in holdings) at 16,156 – the highest level since May.

⛽️ Average Ethereum gas (transaction) fees have spiked to over $50, after starting October at around $25. While still adrift of all-time highs at around $70 seen earlier in May, a tidal wave of interest in NFTs and DeFi has seen transactions on the network skyrocket.

Features of trading CFD

  • Trade in both the bull and the bear markets
    The ability to enter a long and/or short position allows traders to take advantage of both rising and falling markets.
  • Smaller barrier to entry
    CFDs typically have flexible and smaller contract sizes. This means that traders will be able to enter into a CFD contract with a modest amount of capital.
  • No expiration date or risk of delivery
    Unlike futures which commonly have a fixed expiration date, CFDs allow traders to perpetually hold the position(s). CFDs are cash settled, no need to worry about the delivery of the underlying asset.
