Bitcoin / AUD
Bitcoin to Australian dollar: track BTC to AUD chart live and trade it with CFDs.
The BTC to AUD crypto-to-fiat pair is a match between the cryptocurrency pioneer, Bitcoin, which serves as the base, and Australia’s official currency, the Australian Dollar, which is the counter currency of BTC/AUD. This pair represents how many Bitcoins it would take to buy one Australian Dollar or how many Bitcoins can be bought with one AUD.
The Australian Dollar is the 5th most traded currency in the world and it is often categorised as a commodity currency due to the country’s reliance on commodity exports, which account for nearly 22 per cent of Australia’s GDP.
Australia is a highly-developed country and it is the 14th largest economy in the world by GDP, which makes its currency a popular choice among both retail and institutional traders.
Bitcoin, on the other hand, continues to be the most popular and most traded cryptocurrency in the world, with a market capitalisation that exceeds $100 billion, as BTC continues to attract the interest of both investors and companies who are increasingly adopting it as a mainstream payment method.
As a result of the popularity of both the Australian Dollar and Bitcoin, the BTC/AUD pair should be liquid enough to allow traders to conduct operations at lower transaction costs compared to other less popular pairs via narrower spreads.
The successful trading of BTC/AUD will ultimately depend on the trader’s capacity to anticipate potential price swings triggered by shifts in the fundamentals of both currencies.
Bitcoin’s fundamentals include the potential large-scale adoption of the cryptocurrency as both a payment method and a financial asset, while AUD’s most important drivers are the value of key commodities exported by Australia such as iron ore, gold, wheat, and copper, along with the performance of the Chinese economy, which is by far Australia’s most important commercial partner.
Meanwhile, monetary policy decisions from the Reserve Bank of Australia also have an impact on the currency’s fluctuation in value.
With Contracts for difference (CFDs), traders can profit from both negative and positive Bitcoin to Australian dollar price swings by taking short or long in the pair, benefitting from the difference between the buying and the selling price (or vice versa) after the transaction is settled.
Ever since its introduction in 2009, Bitcoin has attracted the attention of regulators, investors, traders, and the public in general as this cryptocurrency has disrupted the way people have thought about payment methods in the past by providing a tool that preserves the anonymity of both parties involved in a transaction, while also changing the paradigm of government-regulated currencies to introduce a non-regulated crypto asset.
Even though many new cryptocurrencies have emerged after Bitcoin’s success, BTC remains the indisputable leader in this market not just because of its massive market capitalisation, but also due to its widespread credibility based on its underlying technology, the blockchain.
Capital.com’s trading platform provides real-time historical price charts of BTC/AUD to allow traders to analyse potential price patterns and trading signals they can profit from by taking long or short positions on this crypto-to-fiat pair.
