Bitcoin Overview

Bitcoin started circulating in January of 2009, and in 2013 binary option brokers started including bitcoins as a trading product on their platforms. Demand for bitcoin binary options fluctuates along with the volatility of the bitcoin prices. When news breaks regarding an extreme movement in bitcoins or the recent FBI bust of Silk Road, interest in binary options for bitcoins spikes.

Not all binary option brokers have the option to trade binary options on Bitcoin. The brokers who list options on bitcoins have them connected to the US Dollar which is the predominant way that bitcoins are priced.

The reason all binary option brokers have not started listing options on bitcoins is because of the lack of transparent pricing of bitcoins. Have a look at this table of bitcoin prices on

Now brokers have once again started offering options based on the Bitstamp prices.
