– Spread on bitcoin cut in half so clients keep more of their gains-

eToro, the global investment platform with over ten million registered users, has announced a significant cut in spreads on cryptoassets as part of its ongoing efforts to increase awareness of the potential of crypto and blockchain more broadly. This move to cut the costs of investing in crypto will help to make it more accessible for retail investors.

With immediate effect, spreads on all cryptoassets on the eToro platform have been trimmed with the spreads on many assets, including bitcoin, cut by more than half. This move means that clients will keep more of their gains.

Yoni Assia, Co-founder and CEO of eToro commented:

“We’re committed to supporting the mass adoption of crypto. We want to make it as simple and accessible as possible for investors to buy, sell or hold crypto. Cutting costs so clients keep more of their gains is one part of this. We are also committed to raising awareness among investors of the potential offered by crypto and the blockchain technology that underpins it. This includes sponsorship, advertising, speaking at events and producing educational material.  Yes, crypto is highly volatile and not appropriate for all investors, but we also believe that for many it can have a role to play as part of a diversified long-term portfolio.”

Efforts to raise awareness of crypto include eToro’s sponsorship of seven Premier League football clubs in a deal paid with bitcoin, sponsorship of German football team Eintracht Frankfurt, and partnering with French tennis player and eToro user Gaelle Monfils.

Yoni Assia said:

“Over and over again we see headlines announcing the end of crypto, yet in reality we continue to see interest in and demand for these assets. The huge price rally at the end of 2017 brought crypto to the attention of the masses and thrust these infant tech companies into the spotlight. Since then prices have stabilised and the crypto industry has had the chance to catch its breath. It has used this opportunity to engage with and educate regulators and participants across traditional finance services as to the opportunities offered by crypto and blockchain more broadly. At eToro, we welcome appropriate regulation for crypto and believe that it will accelerate mass adoption. Crypto is here to stay. We believe that in the future all assets will be tokenised and that crypto is just the first step on this journey.”

eToro is a regulated multi-asset investment platform that has been offering investors access to cryptoassets since 2014. The platform now offers 12 cryptoassets (Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, XRP, Litecoin, Ethereum Classic, Dash, Stellar, NEO, EOS, Cardano and IOTA) as well as crypto/crypto pairs and crypto/fiat pairs. eToro acts as a bridge between the old world of investing and the new, helping investors navigate and benefit from the transition of assets to the blockchain. eToro is the only place where investors can hold traditional assets such as stocks or commodities alongside ‘new’ assets such as bitcoin.

Renewable energy offers a bright future for investors

As humanity continues to evolve and technology along with it, there is one constant that cannot seem to be outrun: the dependence on energy. From the earliest days of cavemen discovering fire to today’s extensive power grids, energy has always been the lifeblood of human advancement. However, in recent decades, the downsides of producing these large amounts of energy have become apparent. From finite resources like fossil fuels, through the pollution brought upon by coal burning, to the dangers of nuclear energy – the world is in dire need of clean, sustainable energy in order to keep going.

Polluted skies and bodies of water, continued depletion of natural resources, and an ongoing increase in non-renewable energy consumption have brought the human race to the edge of catastrophe. However, there are numerous entities fighting these phenomena by creating new means of sustainable energy production and deploying significant infrastructure to support it. The world has run on non-renewable energy for too long, and a growing number of companies and governments are realising that clean energy must be more widely adopted.

The sustainable energy industry has the potential to completely revolutionise the global energy sector – and carries an exciting investment opportunity, as the renewable energy market is expected to reach a massive $2.1 trillion by 2025¹. It is no wonder, then, that both veteran energy corporations and innovative new companies are…

We are delighted to announce the addition of 35 new fiat pairs to the eToro platform. This will bring the total crypto cross pairs to 44, providing our investors with even more diversification options and investment choices. The new pairs include major currencies from four different continents and six leading cryptocurrencies.

Canada

Cryptocurrencies have become extremely popular in Canada recently. Both traders and exchanges have grown in number, with Canadians afforded plenty of access to US exchanges as well. Fiat pairs, like the BTC/CAD and ETC/CAD, are among the most popular financial assets among Canadians right now. Canadian authorities have increased digital currency regulation and oversight over the last several years.

The new eToro fiat pairs for this region are: BTC/CAD, ETH/CAD, XRP/CAD, ETC/CAD, BCH/CAD, LTC/CAD

Europe

Due to its monolithic size, the European Union can often be slow to adapt new rules and regulations to the constantly changing global markets. Thus, cryptocurrencies remain in a state of uncertainty, unregulated by ESMA (European Securities and Markets Authority). This could change soon, with calls from leading political figures to clamp down on the crypto market with new harmonised regulation. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the Swiss Franc is widely available for crypto cross pairs, including the ETH/CHF and BCH/CHF.

The new eToro fiat pairs for this region are: BTC/CHF,…
