eToro does not simply adhere to offering crypto CFDs

The introduction of new instruments adds to eToro’s rapidly expanding suite of cryptos. The Israeli social investment platform has had a string of recent announcements in a major push to attract crypto traders and grow its user base. Earlier last month, it announced the addition of new coins, including Solana’s native token, SOL, Filecoin (FIL) and Polkadot (DOT), as it continues to explore emerging digital assets.

Commenting on the news, Doron Rosenblum, VP of Business Solutions at eToro said:

“We’re seeing huge demand for DeFi and metaverse tokens, and we’re delighted to be able to offer more of these assets to our customers. The addition of these new tokens to the eToro platform demonstrates the breadth of choice available to investors in the crypto-asset market today, with some 42 tokens now available on our platform. We will continue to grow our crypto offering to enable users to diversify their portfolios with a broad range of crypto assets.”

Unlike many other brokers, eToro does not simply adhere to offering crypto CFDs but also allows clients to purchase the assets, with eToro acting as custodian and holding the digital coins on behalf of clients.
