XTB is a brokerage. It allows you to trade or invest in Bitcoin through CFDs, meaning you don’t actually own the Bitcoin. The verdict here is No send/receive
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.
