What is Bitcoin?

Bitcoin is a “digital representation of value that may be accepted by some parties as a means of payment and can be transferred, stored or traded electronically.” The integrity of bitcoin lies in a blockchain – a transparent, distributed ledger that everyone in the network can view in real time and which tracks all transaction history. The Bitcoin network is based on this distributed system where everyone agrees on its value and the protocol evolves by consensus. Unlike fiat currency or standard assets, it is not controlled by a central government, bank or authority, making all transactions direct, public, peer-to-peer acts.

Developed by the pseudonymous Satoshi Nakamoto, the conception of the Blockchain platform provided a decentralized solution to the problems faced by earlier attempts to create digital currencies. By operating on the peer-to-peer Blockchain network, Bitcoin bypasses the issues of double spending and institutional trust.

Bitcoin Investment

Buying Bitcoin is like buying a diamond. It’s relatively easy to source half a carat – any retail jeweler can cater. But if you want a 5-carat diamond, only a few companies in the world can source that size. The same applies to Bitcoins: hundreds of digital exchange websites can sell you small volumes (daily limits are approximately $2,500), but if you want a large tranche you need a specialist.

Chase specializes in large volumes, working with expert international aggregators and liquidity suppliers. In order to maintain a high level of customer care and personalized service for our clients, trading with Chase entails a minimum investment of $1000 in Bitcoins.

CFDs are leveraged products. Trading in CFDs related to foreign exchange, commodities,indices and other underlying variables, carries a high level of risk and can result in the loss of all of your investment. As such, CFDs may not be suitable for all investors. You should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. Before deciding to trade, you should become aware of all the risks associated with CFD trading, and seek advice from an independent and suitably licensed financial advisor. Under no circumstances shall we have any liability to any person or entity for (a) any loss or damage in whole or part caused by, resulting from, or relating to any transactions related to CFDs or (b) any direct, indirect, special, consequential or incidental damages whatsoever. Trading with Chase by following and/or copying or replicating the trades of other traders involves a high level of risks, even when following and/or copying or replicating the top-performing traders. Such risks includes the risk that you may be following/copying the trading decisions of possibly inexperienced/unprofessional traders and the overall risk associated in CFD trading or traders whose ultimate purpose or intention, or financial status may differ from yours.
