Over 2014 FXOpen has added crypto-currencies for trading, successfully introduced two trading accounts (Crypto & STP), launched VPS-hosting, and updated its website design including the personal area. We hope that these new features and a number of opportunities helped to make your work with FXOpen even more comfortable and productive!
Please, follow our most important achievements below:
FXOpen offered a new payment option - LiqPay.
LiqPay is an effective instant bank transfer service. You can use this payment method to send money via mobile devices, Internet and credit cards from all over the world. The main advantage of this system is that you don’t have to open a separate account and remember its credentials. In fact, your LiqPay account is your mobile phone number, and your payment is confirmed by SMS.
FXOpen accepts payments via LiqPay in the following currencies: USD, EUR, RUB, UAH. Maximum transaction amount for a deposit/withdrawal is $2500 (or equivalents).
Commission for a deposit - 1.75%.
FXOpen started supporting popular decentralized peer-to-peer payment systems as follows: Bitcoin, Litecoin and Namecoin. Now you can deposit and withdraw funds in BTC, LTC and NMC.
A new trading account called 'Crypto' was added for trading with the following crypto-currencies: Bitcoin, Litecoin, Namecoin and Peercoin. The main difference in trading crypto-currencies is that the system operates in decentralized peer-to-peer (P2P) network.
Now you can trade crypto-currencies with Interbank liquidity, Market Depth of the 250 best ASK/BID prices and other favorable trading terms.
The Crypto account can be opened in USD, EUR, GBP, RUB, JPY. Currently, the below crypto-pairs are available with FXOpen:

The commission is added to your account automatically on a daily basis. As an agent, you can earn up US$1,000 commission per day.
