Nowadays, traders have the possibility to trade the tokenised assets available on the Currency.com platform. The tokenisation enables traders to benefit from price movements of a reference asset without the need to own the asset or enter into complex trading agreements. The tokenised assets are developed using a blockchain technology which eliminates the need for third parties to be included in the transactions.
Cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin or Ethereum can be used on Currency.com platforms to trade tokenised Boeing shares or any other tokenised assets without the need to exchange them. The ability to buy and sell tokenised assets directly with crypto means that the time and costs associated with conversion are eliminated.
Tokenised shares can be bought or sold using leverage provided by Currency.com. You may have the chance to trade tokenised assets with a leverage of up to 1:100 depending on the reference assets. Tokenised Boeing shares have a margin of 5 per cent which means that you need to have only a fraction of the available capital for your position. For instance, a position of $20,000 (£15,290) can be opened with only 5 per cent or $1,000 (£765) of available capital. It means there is no need for a trader to have a sufficient amount of money available to open a trading position that can potentially make significant profits.
