Financial technology group ayondo has expanded its product portfolio with the launch of bitcoin trading, allowing its clients easy access to the price movement of the digital currency without the need to open up an e-wallet to purchase bitcoin in the internet.
“The digital currency has experienced rapid growth recently and can now be traded at ayondo via spread betting/contract for difference (CFD) trading,” the group announced. “Bitcoin is also available to signal providers on the ayondo social trading platform WeTrade.”
Raza Perez, ayondo’s chief product officer, added: “The recent development of bitcoin and the associated interest in bitcoin is immense. In times of low volatility at the financial markets, the high variation in price offers an excellent trading opportunity. With the launch of bitcoin, we follow the demand of our clients and further strengthen our product range.”
The Swiss bank, which offers bitcoin blockchain asset management services, is adding support for ether, litecoin and bitcoin cash.
