We could not find any proof that you could deposit Bitcoin on the platform. Deposits are made in fiat. Withdrawals can only be in fiat.
Financial trading platforms that support crypto CFDs usually do not allow deposits or withdrawals in cryptocurrency. These services are necessarily custodial which makes the app unverifiable.
The product can't send or receive BTC.
As part of our Methodology, we ask:Can it send and receive bitcoins? If not, we tag it No send/receive
If it is for holding BTC but you can’t actually send or receive them with this product then it doesn’t function like a wallet for BTC but you might still be using it to hold your bitcoins with the intention to convert back to fiat when you “cash out”.
All products in this category are custodial and thus funds are at the mercy of the provider.
