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

loading...

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.

Zeex has inked a series of new deals with crypto wallet providers as a central element in the company’s move to revolutionize the wallet marketplace with its new proprietary gift card liquidity mechanism. Zeex has now signed deals with Bancor, Hooxi, Coinwall, Ginco, Sirin, and BreadWallet (BRD). 

Introducing Zeex

Zeex is a platform that confronts the most limiting obstacle in the crypto space: utility as a medium of exchange with a marketplace comprised of traditional products and services and traditional modes of commerce. Zeex offers users the ability to skip over the fiat currency step and make purchases by converting cryptocurrency into “corporate currency” through the Giftcard channel.

What’s the Big Deal?

At this stage, there are no truly effective means to circumnavigate the fiat step and utilize gift card exchange liquidity directly from cryptocurrency. While Coinbase has anointed the “Prepaid Crypto Giftcard” concept, this is a relatively recent development and the market has yet to comprehensively adjust.

Zeex has seized the initiative and emerged as the leading player on this front, with support from its non-blockchain sister, Zeek. Zeex has already lined up a series of blue-chip corporate brands, including Nike, ASOS, XBOX, Reebok, and Amazon, and is already pushing its minimum viable product iteration into late-stage production.
