Online forex broker, FXOpen, has made an increasingly strong push into the cryptocurrency realm in recent months, now having added a new incentive in the form of Bitcoin (BTC) startup bonuses worth $10 for new crypto accounts. Account opening bonuses are typical among forex brokers, but they are primarily given to users who also deposit additional funds.
A new wave of marketing though, has led to a growth in firms offering free no deposit bonuses. Among brokers offering bitcoin trading, both Plus500 and eToro offer such incentives for their CFD (synthetic bitcoins) offering. FXOpen though is the first broker to our knowledge that is providing free bonuses for actual bitcoins. The bonus is available to new cryptocurrency customers who verify their accounts via mobile numbers.
FXOpen began launching crypto accounts back in February this year, shortly following the height of Bitcoin prices, which were soaring into the close of the 2013-year. Earlier this month, the broker became the first to offer MetaTrader 4 trading accounts denominated in Bitcoins and Litecoins.
The company also introduced swap-free Bitcoin pairs and other digital currency trading such as Litecoins and Namecoins, along with the Bitcoin trading denominate in the Chinese Renminbi.
The new offer represents a bid by FXOpen to help fortify the frequency of cryptocurrency accounts, an initiative the company has seemed to be advancing as of late.
