As of Wednesday, February 21nd, we are applying a necessary change to the way the units and margins of trades are calculated, in order to better reflect the ownership of the underlying assets. Background Until today, the calculation of bought units is based on the bid price, regardless if the trade is buying or selling the underlying asset. As a result, when you open a buy trade, despite the fact that the trade is opened with the ask price, the number of units you have is effectively higher than it should be because it's based on the bid price (which is always lower). What will be changing? As part of our recent move towards investing in real assets (ETFs, cryptocurrencies, and soon stocks), we are applying the following changes in order to better reflect the asset ownership: Units and margin calculation of buy Trades will be calculated based on the ask Price. Units and margin calculation of sell Trades will be calculated based on the bid Price. Please note: The new calculation will only affect trades that will be opened after the new version is live. The post Changes in margin/unit calculation appeared first on eToro. [...]

2017 was a breakout year for many different cryptocurrencies. These innovative digital assets took center stage, and everyone was talking about Bitcoin, Ethereum and the rest of the crypto market. Alongside the well-established Bitcoin, other cryptocurrencies began to emerge and create a name for themselves. One such example is NEO, a China-based cryptocurrency which in 2017 managed to reach a market cap in the billions and establish itself as a top 10 crypto. NEO was recently launched on eToro, so we've put together this handy guide, to help you familiarize yourself with the crypto. Trade NEO Now Cryptocurrencies can fluctuate widely in price and are, therefore, not appropriate for all investors. Trading cryptocurrencies is not supervised by any EU regulatory framework. Your capital is at risk. What is NEO? Launched in 2014, NEO (previously AntShares) was created as a blockchain application platform, and a smart contract system called NeoContract. The company behind NEO is called Onchain, headed by Chinese entrepreneur Da Hongfei. There are two currencies used in the NEO network: NeoGas (GAS), which is used to execute apps, and NEO, which is used for management purposes, such as voting on the platform. Like a publicly traded company, each NEO represents one vote, which is the reason it cannot be divided. NEO is often referred to as the “New Ethereum” or “Chinese Ethereum,” since it has quite a few things in common with the world's second largest crypto. For example, they can both be used for the creation of smart contracts and can also serve as a platform for programming blockchain apps. However, there are several differences between the two. NEO vs. Ethereum: Main differencesCentralization vs. Decentralization: while NEO is democratic, Onchain still has complete control over the platform and could, for example, upgrade the entire network without needing user consensus. In contrast, Ethereum was created [...]

There's no denying 2017 was the year for cryptocurrencies. So many of these innovative assets, which were previously completely unknown, have now been written about and debated everywhere. While much of the attention directed at cryptocurrencies was due to their meteoric rise over the past year, it was also due to the fact that they present something new from a financial and technological standpoint. One fine example is Stellar. While its cryptocurrency, called Lumens (or XLM) was part of the cryptocurrency boom, rising thousands of percents and becoming a top 10 currency, it was the company's vision that separated it from others. Among other things, Stellar has the declared agenda of reducing poverty and helping bankless societies. Trade XLM Now Cryptocurrencies can fluctuate widely in prices and are, therefore, not appropriate for all investors. Trading cryptocurrencies is not supervised by any EU regulatory framework. Your capital is at risk. Using blockchain to help the poor Launched in 2014, Stellar is a blockchain-based platform designed for quick currency exchange and money transfer. Originally based on Ripple Labs' protocol, Stellar later forked and eventually rewrote its code entirely. Like XRP by Ripple Labs, Stellar's XLM currency serves as a bridging currency for conducting various transactions on the Stellar platform. This is the reason each XLM token has a very low value when compared to most other top 10 cryptos. A unique aspect of Stellar is the fact that it is a nonprofit organization. Founded by two well-known figures in the tech world, eDonkey creator, Jed McCaleb and veteran investor, Kim Joyce, Stellar aims to utilize the power of blockchain technology to help the poor, among others. Using Stellar's protocol, which requires no ‘middleman' or third party for transferring funds, even those who don't have a bank account can enjoy basic banking services. Moreover, since Stellar can be [...]
