How to invest in Accenture stock with tokenised assets?
Advances in blockchain technology supported the creation of a variety of innovative assets which expanded the trading opportunities in financial markets. This includes the tokenised assets created by Currency.com. Blockchain technology enables faster executing time, lower costs and enhanced security, while transactions are recorded on a distributed ledger. Currency.com applied this technology and developed tradeable tokens associated with a real-life asset such as shares, commodities or indices.
This new type of asset can be used to invest in Accenture stock or any other security for which a token is created. The desire to invest in Accenture stock and benefit from fluctuations in its value is easily achievable because of the way the innovative assets work. The value of tokenised assets replicates the movements in the underlying assets, enabling traders to benefit while excluding the need to own the real assets.
Currency.com developed tokenised assets in a way that will enable traders to open and close positions directly with crypto. This option ensures that all unnecessary and non-value adding costs are eliminated from the transactions made with Bitcoin or Ethereum.
Traders can invest in Accenture stock using the trading margin of five per cent, which is provided by Currency.com platform to its clients when trading tokenised Accenture shares. The low margin enables traders to increase the size of their positions with their available capital. For instance, a trader that has $2,000 (£1,498) to invest in Accenture stock can open a trading position with tokenised Accenture shares worth $40,000 (£29,946) when using the five per cent margin. A relevant change of three per cent in the trader’s direction can potentially bring $1,200 (£899). For comparison, if the position is opened without any margin and leverage then even with a 10 per cent change on a position of $2,000 the trader may earn a potential profit of $200 (£150).
