AvaTrade has partnered with Gold-i to offer Bitcoin contract for difference (CFD) trading to its clients. AvaTrade clients can trade Bitcoin against the US dollar on MetaTrader 4 alongside their ForFXex, commodities, stocks and indices trades.
Daire Ferguson, managing director at AvaTrade, says, “Bitcoin is the digital currency of the future and we are very excited that it can now be traded on the AvaTrade platform.”
Tom Higgins, CEO of Gold-i adds, “New currencies rarely come into existence and Bitcoin is very different to other currencies which have launched. It has global appeal and is likely to be very successful. Now that we have added Bitcoin to MT4/MT5, we plan to add it to the Gold-i portfolio to sell it to others. I believe there will be an increasing demand for brokers to follow AvaTrade and offer Bitcoin to their clients.”
