What is Ethereum?

Ethereum is a digital software platform, like Microsoft Windows, where people can build decentralised applications, like security programs and identity software, on top of the Ethereum platform. Ethereum was launched by Vitalik Buterin in 2014.

Many people get confused between Ethereum and Ether. The Ethereum website solves this – “Ether is the crypto-fuel for the Ethereum Network” – Ether is essentially the money that is used for payment on the Ethereum network. So, while we often view Ethereum as a cryptocurrency, the more accurate name to call it is Ether.

Like Bitcoin, Ethereum’s price skyrocketed in 2017, however there are some key differences between the two; notably that Bitcoin aims to be a store of wealth and eventually become a global form of currency, whereas Ethereum aims to become a software platform upon which smart contracts and decentralised apps can run.

How Can You Trade Ethereum using a CFD Trading Platform?

When you trade Ethereum (or Ether) using CFDs, you never actually own any Ethereum – this differs from buying and selling Ethereum tokens, where you need to access an exchange and virtual wallet to buy & sell the Ethereum tokens which can take days/ weeks. When you trade CFDs, all you need is a TradeDirect365 account, which takes 5-10 minutes to apply for.

Once your account is live and you’ve logged into the trading platform, you will see Ether listed under our Cryptocurrency’s tab. Rather than buying Ethereum (and taking full ownership of it) when you open a trade, all you are actually doing is speculating on the price movement of Ether. For example: if you think the price of Ether will decline, then you would open a SELL trade. If the price of Ether does go down, then you would make a profit on that trade. If the price goes up, you will make a loss.

Remember, CFDs are leveraged products; this means that you will only ever need to make a small deposit to gain full exposure to the value of a trade. This has its advantages and disadvantages.

You can open LONG (buy) or SHORT (sell) Ether trade positions with TD365 – our Ether spread is fixed at 8 points and margin requirements are 40%. Guaranteed stop losses are available.

How To Find The Best Ethereum Trading Platform

With so many CFD brokers and trading platforms to choose from it can be difficult to know which broker/ platform will best suit your needs. Below are a couple of considerations to think about before deciding who to open an Ethereum trading account with;

Trading Costs

Trading Ethereum and other financial markets’ costs money – there are spread costs, potential commission charges, overnight financing costs, exchange fees etc. You must consider all of these trading costs before opening an account as all brokers charge differently.

Available Markets

If you want to trade Ethereum then please ensure your broker of choice has Ethereum on their trading platform as not all brokers offer it. TD365 has Ethereum on its platform! 


Always use an ASIC-regulated CFD broker as this regulatory body has rules and regulations in place that protect the integrity of the market. Never use an unregulated broker to make your trades!

Trading Platform

There are a long list of trading platforms available so please ensure you like one before you commit to it. At TD365, we like to keep our trading platform simple, efficient and easy-to-use, but many other brokers prefer theirs clunky and busy – the choice is yours.
