If you’re approaching the world of trading for the first time, you are probably still unsure about which branch is the right one for you. Or you might be familiar with the traditional stock market trading and feel like trying something new, as the former does not suit your needs.

We understand how daunting such a choice can be, with so many different elements to take into account, so we tried to help by listing the basic differences and some aspects of interest.

The stock exchange market is where it all began and is so much a part of the popular culture that its charms (and dangers) are depicted and celebrated even in works of fiction like books or movies.

On the other hand, the world of cryptocurrencies is not less charming: much younger than the stock trading, it has literally boomed in only a few years and is still enjoying an ongoing growth in success. Its potential will certainly attract your interest, as it has attracted the interest of thousands of traders out there.

Let’s have a closer look at some of the main differences between trading on the traditional stock exchange or on the promising crypto world.

The first steps

The stock market is more traditional, and therefore still bound to “old-school” bureaucracy and paperwork. You might be already picturing yourself jumping into the action wolf-of-wall-street style, but, in reality, you’ll first have to sit down and patiently fill in forms and papers.

Crypto trading, on the other hand, is much simpler and faster: you can start trading right away in fact!

Profit possibility

Making a profit on the stock market is more than possible, but it’s a long-term effort and needs to be backed up by a large initial capital, excellent knowledge of the market and outstanding analysis skills.

The Cryptocurrency trading market is much more volatile, yes, but it is possible to start trading with a lot less capital. Bear in mind that we are talking about trading cryptocurrency, and not owning it: you won’t actually have to buy value in any cryptocurrency but simply speculate on the movements in the market. With leverage products like CFD trading at City Index, your initial investment will not have to be huge but will still give you good exposure – and profits.

Round the clock

Stock markets generally have specific trading hours, which means that you’ll be tied to those times and will only be able to make transactions when the market is open. The Crypto markets, on the other hand, are much more flexible and youll basically be able to trade whenever you feel like.

Apart from the immediate availability and its obvious convenience, trading 24/7 also means that the transactions are constantly influenced by news and world events and this can be used to your advantage.

These are some of the main differences to consider before making a choice.

If you have a dynamic lifestyle, you will certainly prefer the flow of crypto trading, whereas if you’re more into a traditional setup, we suggest you go for the traditional stock trading.

How Cryptocurrencies Will Change Online Gambling in the Future

Anyone who has followed online gambling since the beginning can tell you that things don’t stay the same for long. One of the reasons for this is that technology improves at such a ridiculously fast pace, and innovators in this industry are able to match up with those technological changes pretty quickly.

An innovation in technology that the Internet gambling industry has really learned from is cryptocurrency, with bitcoin in particular leading the way. We’ve seen it emerge as an alternative banking method, but it’s going to change the industry as a whole in ways that people can’t quite understand yet.

A Post-Legality Era

Something that has eluded online gambling since its inception is the idea of a global governing body. As it stands right now, each individual country (and smaller units of jurisdiction) have their own governing bodies that oversee in the industry. A lot of these laws are tied to banking laws, and that’s where the legality of playing in bitcoin casinos becomes such an interesting topic.

In the present, we’re seeing country-based regulatory bodies from places like Malta, Gibraltar and the United Kingdom start to work together and recognize each other’s licenses more and more. That’s taking serious steps towards having a global governing entity, and once that happens, the role of bitcoin is going to be even larger than it is now because it’ll…
