Comprehensive review

XBTFX is a relatively new cryptocurrency-based CFD & forex broker that has been registered in the popular offshore jurisdiction Saint Vincent and the Grenadines since 2019. As an offshore broker, XBTFX is able to offer traders very high leverage, a simple and easy account verification process, and account funding with cryptocurrencies.

As far as trading instruments goes, XBTFX offers pretty much everything a trader could want, with the only exceptions being bonds and interest rates. Besides that, however, its selection of forex pairs is simply impressive, with over 70 pairs to choose from. The same also goes for stocks, where traders can enjoy more than 120 single stocks from American, European, Russian, and several Asian companies listed in Hong Kong and Tokyo.

Where this broker really shines, however, is when it comes to cryptocurrencies, with one of the best selections of cryptocurrencies we have seen from any CFD broker. At the time of this review, XBTFX offers trading in more than 100 crypto pairs, including many crypto-to-crypto pairs as well as major cryptoassets traded against the US dollar, euro, Japanese yen, Swiss franc, Australian dollar, New Zealand dollar, Canadian dollar, British pound, Russian rouble, gold, and silver.

In terms of trading platforms, XBTFX offers the well-known MetaTrader 5 (MT5) platform in both its classic downloadable version for Windows computers and its web-based version for use on any computer. This platform is the upgraded version of the better-known MT4, and comes with largely the same familiar interface, as well as a large built-in marketplace for trading strategies (“Expert Advisors”) and custom technical indicators.

Once signed up, new clients with XBTFX will need to choose whether to trade with the Standard account, which is an STP-style account with commission-free trading (except for stocks) but wider spreads, or the ECN account, which has smaller spreads but a commission of USD 3.5 per lot for most instruments. As usual, traders with larger trading accounts are typically better off with the ECN account, while those with smaller accounts should opt for the Standard STP-type of account.

Unique to crypto-based brokers like XBTFX is that the trading accounts can only be funded with cryptocurrencies, with no bank transfers or credit cards accepted. The accepted cryptocurrencies are currently Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Ripple, Bitcoin Cash, Binance Coin, Cardano, Stellar Lumen, Dogecoin, and the US dollar-pegged stablecoins Tether, USD Coin, PAX, Gemini Dollar, TrueUSD, and Multi-collateral DAI.

Other than the blockchain fees paid to make the transaction, XBTFX does not charge any processing fees for deposits or withdrawals, which we of course always appreciate.

In case of difficulties with the sign-up process or the trading itself, XBTFX’s support team can be reached via email or a live chat function on its website. Additionally, most questions that come up are answered in a pretty straightforward way in the FAQ section on the website. However, we still wish the broker would clearly state its support working hours, as well as offer a phone number for more urgent needs, which it unfortunately has not done.

All in all, we believe it is important to keep in mind that XBTFX is still a very new broker, without much of a proven track record. Further, it is also worth noting that this broker differs from most CFD & forex brokers in that it only accepts cryptocurrencies from traders, while even the trading accounts themselves are only denominated in cryptocurrencies (including more stable dollar-pegged cryptos). We believe this makes XBTFX a broker focused on the future, and one that is surely worth keeping an eye on for traders who are interested in both crypto and more traditional financial markets.
