Cryptocurrency trading happens on centralized and decentralized exchanges which are less regulated than traditional markets. In cryptocurrency markets, amateur investors, professional traders, institutional investors and algotraders meet. In the last years, more and more possibilities have been opening up such as new trading platforms, new trading pairs, new financial instruments, or trading with huge leverage. Leverage and a relatively high percentage of algorithmic trading partially explain the high volatility in cryptocurrencies. Through decentralized finance “DeFi”, more people get access to these risky opportunities and trade crypto with others leveraging decentralized protocols.
