CMC Markets, a trading company based in Queens Land (UK) has announced to add three new cryptocurrencies Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash and XRP respectively to its platform. The firm offers a wide variety of opportunities for its users. More than three hundred global currencies, classic commodities such as oil gold, and silver, company shares, treasury notes, gilts, and bonds. They basically offer all kinds of traditional financial instruments, even spread bets.
Last March, CMC added Bitcoin and Ethereum to the mix of products they offer and, now, they decided to support three new virtual currencies in their platform (as noted above): Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash, and XRP.
Mr. David Fineberg who happens to be the Director of Group Commercial for CMC, has this to say about the company’s new move:
“Since the successful launch of our cryptocurrency offering in March, and subsequent extension to retail clients in July, our clients have expressed interest in extending their trading options beyond bitcoin and ethereum. We are pleased to offer them the chance to take a position on bitcoin cash, litecoin and ripple, three altcoins which continue to generate much speculation among traders.”
Fineberg also added,
“Spread bets and CFDs offer a way to trade on cryptocurrencies as clients can take a position on market movements without owning the asset. By trading with an established provider, funds can be deposited and withdrawn with ease, avoiding the risks of purchasing cryptocurrencies directly through an exchange. However, like all other financial instruments we offer, we always recommend clients understand the risks and conduct thorough research before trading.”
This news is very important because we’re not talking about a crypto exchange at all, but about a traditional financial company that is adopting digital assets and bringing them into the mainstream. CMC’s clients are not crypto enthusiasts but people who try to make money using the company’s web platform through financial resources, instruments, and tools that are very old.

The company’s latest decision is part of its new approach to be innovative.
For instance, last June CMC trained Alexa to give its clients the latest financial news. headlines, articles, relevant tweets and market data. It’s the first provider in the market that has made on-demand insights in this particular way. The magic words are “Alexa, open CMC markets.”
A month later it brought crypto spread betting to its platform and they are now increasing the number of crypto coins they offer to their clients.
CMC is a company that seeks to empower traditional investors through the use of technology, and they’ve seen the writing on the wall: Crypto is the next wave. Because they are very keen on technological advances, including some of the most interesting digital assets in the world was, probably, an easy decision for them.
The company’s position on technology was also clarified by Mr. Fineberg:
“At CMC Markets we recognize the power of technology, so we continue to invest in a range of services to be a leader in this space. This is why we have taken proactive steps to ensure that we are the first trading company to fully utilize the potential of this software”
David Fineberg concluded saying,
“We are excited by how traders are engaging in the digital age, and the CMC Markets Skill we have developed is part of our ongoing strategy to enhance the overall experience of our clients by providing them with the information they need, when they need it.”
