Since bitcoin first came into existence in 2009, cryptocurrency trading has exploded in popularity, and thousands of other cryptocurrencies have also been introduced. To capitalize on this trend, many forex brokers both in Mauritius and elsewhere have started offering cryptocurrency trading in the form of CFDs.
So far, the Financial Services Commission Mauritius - Mauritius’ main financial regulator - has allowed forex brokers to offer cryptocurrency trading in the country. Mauritius is therefore one of those countries where cryptocurrency enthusiasts safely can trade leveraged CFDs based on popular cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum, and XRP Ripple. Keep in mind, however, that CFDs are not the same as actual cryptocurrencies, and that these instruments cannot be transferred out of the trading platform.
