Which cryptocurrencies are offered by eToro?
Bitcoin (BTC): The largest cryptocurrency by market cap, considered to be the first wide-scale implementation of blockchain technology.
Ethereum (ETHEREUM): This leading cryptocurrency has received international recognition from technology giants such as Microsoft and Intel. In addition to payments, Ethereum also supports “smart contracts”.
Bitcoin Cash (BCH): A ‘hard fork’ designed to be a solution to the transaction backlog Bitcoin was experiencing, Bitcoin Cash’s block size is eight times that of Bitcoin.
Ethereum Classic (ETC): Although Ethereum Classic has a significantly lower market cap than its namesake, it is still a popular cryptocurrency.
Litecoin (LTC): The first cryptocurrency to implement SegWit, a method of speeding up transaction times without compromising the underlying blockchain technology.
Dash (DASH): Based on Bitcoin’s technology, Dash’s additional infrastructure enables faster transactions and higher liquidity, though unlike other cryptocurrencies, Dash is a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO).
Stellar Lumens (XLM): Operating on a unique consensus algorithm rather than mining, Stellar can facilitate transactions between multiple currencies, whether fiat or digital.
NEO (NEO): Also known as the ‘Chinese Ethereum,’ NEO was designed to be easily modified and to have no forking ability.
EOS (EOS): Upon its release, EOS quickly became one of the top ten cryptos, with a powerful open-source infrastructure capable of supporting thousands of commercial-scale decentralized applications (DApps).
IOTA (MIOTA): Based on a proprietary ‘blockless’ blockchain called Tangle, IOTA is paving the way for a decentralized network to power the Internet of Things (IoT).
Zcash (ZEC): Zcash encrypts the contents of shielded transactions, ensuring that the sender, recipient, and amount transferred are all kept private.
Tezos (XTZ): Tezos’ ICO in September 2018 was one of the largest in crypto history, raising a record-breaking $232 million.
Uniswap (UNI): Uniswap, an Ethereum-based platform, was built in 2018 as a decentralized crypto exchange (DEX). On Uniswap, traders can exchange assets peer-to-peer using smart contracts, and earn trading fees by depositing assets into liquidity pools.
Chainlink (LINK): Chainlink is an Ethereum-based decentralized platform that connects smart contracts on any blockchain to data providers, web APIs, enterprise systems, cloud services, and more.
Dogecoin (DOGE): The meme-inspired crypto that gained widespread popularity on social media networks was created in 2013 to democratize the digital payment system.
What is the minimum amount needed to trade on eToro?
On the eToro trading platform, trades are made by dollar amount, rather than by unit of an asset. That means that you don’t need to buy whole units of an asset; you can buy just a fraction of a cryptocurrency, starting from a minimum of $10 per trade.
Please note that there is a $50 minimum for depositing funds.
Are my funds insured?
Yes, if you are a US resident, your cash holdings are FDIC insured for up to $250,000.
Your USD funds are held in an FDIC-insured custodial account. Even if eToro were to fail, your money would be protected and returnable to you (up to $250k).
Which payment methods are accepted for deposits?
We currently accept deposits via debit card, online banking, and wire transfer. We do not charge any deposit or withdrawal fees for these methods.
Is the cryptocurrency in my eToro portfolio the actual asset?
Yes. When you buy cryptocurrency on the eToro trading platform, we use an automated system based on consolidated cryptocurrency accounts to purchase the actual asset. This automated method simply helps us provide lightning-fast transaction times, increased security, and a very straightforward user experience.
Can I use the cryptocurrency in my eToro portfolio for external payments?
No. However, eToro offers a separate app (eToro Money) with an integrated multisig wallet as an easy and convenient way to use your crypto externally. Once a cryptocurrency has been transferred to the eToro Money wallet, it may be used to send external payments. For more information about the allet, click here.
Please note that cryptocurrency transferred from your eToro portfolio to the wallet cannot be transferred back again into your portfolio.
Do I need a crypto wallet in order to trade on eToro?
No. eToro makes cryptocurrency trading simple. There is no need to memorize complicated addresses and passwords for multiple digital wallets — all you need is your eToro login and you’re ready to trade.
If, however, you would like to access your cryptocurrency directly, the eToro Money wallet is the perfect solution. It is seamlessly integrated to receive transfers from your eToro portfolio in order to use your crypto for external payments. For more information about the wallet, click here.
Please note that cryptocurrency transferred from your eToro portfolio to the wallet, the funds cannot be transferred back again into your portfolio.
