What is Intel Corporation?
Intel Corporation is part of the semiconductor industry and its business activities are related to the innovation, design, production and sale of computer components and associated products. The company was founded by Robert Norton Noyce and Gordon Earle Moore on July 18, 1968 and its headquarters are located in Santa Clara, California. Although we know the company under its current name, its original title was NM Electronics after the names of its founders. Later, the owners bought the rights from another company to use "Intel" as their company name, which stands for Integrated Electronics.
In 1971 Intel manufactured the Intel 4004 which is widely recognised as the first commercially produced microprocessor. Today, intel manufactures a wide number of products for the computing and communication industry. Some are central processing units, microprocessors, integrated graphics processing units (iGPU), motherboard chipsets, modems and solid-state drives. The products are manufactured in different facilities in the USA, Europe and Asia.
The company’s business activities are divided into multiple segments. These are Client Computing Group (CCG), Data Center Group (DCG), Internet of Things Group (IOTG), Non-Volatile Memory Solutions Group (NSG), Mobileye, Programmable Solutions Group (PSG), and All Other. The company has more than 100 000 employees worldwide.

How to invest in Intel stock
Traders can invest in intel stock through traditional or innovative instruments such as direct stock purchase, getting a call or put option, enter a futures agreement, buy units from investment funds or trade tokenised assets.
Alternatively, they can use innovative instruments based on blockchain technology. The Currency.com platform offers this through the tokenisation of stocks, commodities and other assets. It allows them to execute transactions faster, safer and at lower costs.
Trading tokenised Intel shares can be executed not only with fiat money but also with crypto, completely removing the need for conversion of Bitcoin or Ether.
Also, with some other instruments, profits are limited up to the capital invested. This is not the case when trading tokenised Intel shares. The reason is that Currency.com may offer leverage of 1:500 depending on the tokenised asset. The margin for Intel shares is only 5 per cent. Hence, traders need to invest only 5 per cent of the position’s value, but the profit is calculated on the full value. For instance, with $500 (£379) of available capital, you can open a position of $10,000 (£7,710) and although you have invested only $500 your gains will be based on the $10,000 value.
