Following its soft launch in 2017, 1fox.com already had 40,000 registered members, many of whom were actively making BTC/USD trades on the platform. This is due to the extremely intuitive user interface and of course the option users have to leverage their purchases of bitcoin.
We will explain some of the other key features and a description of 1fox.com, specifically how BTC/USD trades work. But first, here's a quick explanation of what we mean whenh we use the technical term leverage.
How Leverage Works
Suppose you want to make money in real estate, buying and then flipping (selling for profit) a home. Suppose that you have $100,000 to buy a home. You find a property that ccosts $100,000 and you manage to sell it for $110,000, making a profit of $10,000 or 10 percent of your investment.
Another way to invest the same $100,000 would be to divide it by 10, and put a $10,000 down payment on 10 different houses that cost $100,000 and then leverage the remaining funds, which is to say to use borrowed funds for the remainder ($90,000 per house opr $900,000 in total). In this case, if you sell each home for $110,000 your profit is $100,000 after payiong back the lender. You've doubled your money for a profit of 100 percent.
Bitcoin, like a house, is an asset, and by offering their registered users leverage when they buy BTC, they give them the chance to have much higher returns on their initial investment.
Setting up an account on fox1.com is as easy as setting up a social media account: all you need is an email address, a username, and a password.
Once you've logged into your account you want to head over to the Market Dashboard to place an order by clicking on the trade tab. This reveals two arrows: one pointing down and another pointing up. The downward pointing arrow is for a short position meaning that you profit when the price of BTC decreases. The upward pointing arrow is for a long position meaning that you profit when the price of BTC rises.
Once you've decided between a short and long term position, you make your order and here there are three choices: market, limit and stop entry. You can leverage your order by demonitating up to 5X the price of the order.
