April has been historically a fruitful month for cryptocurrencies, according to a market recap by Kraken published in March 2022.

Although the overall market is bearish, Kraken suggested that April’s seasonality favours the bulls, with a median price lift of 27%. 

Here we take a look at the biggest crypto movers in the period between 25 March and 25 April 2022, according to data provided by CoinMarketCap. Note that cryptocurrency markets are volatile and past performance is no guarantee of future returns.

LLT, the native cryptocurrency of the recently launched crypto assets exchange platform LordToken, has been trading between $0.04 and $0.03 in April, taking the first place on our list of biggest crypto fallers. 

On 5 April 2022, LordToken said that CoinMarketCap had displayed the LTT/WBNB pair, resulting in the wrong price chart and throwing investor sentiment off. 

LordToken is powered by the Binance Smart Chain (BSC). It allows people to invest in LTT tokens whilst trading other crypto assets. Its mission is to make investing in Europe accessible for all. 

In the first quarter of 2022, the platform is planning to introduce its LTT’s saving program through which users will be able to stake their LTT tokens for an annual percentage yield (APY). In the second quarter, LordToken will bring a cashback program.

EBT saw a 264% daily gain, peaking at $0.00023 on 21 April 2022 from $0.00006317 earlier that day. However, the token embarked on a downward trend, losing all of its value by the following day and dropping to levels below the $0.00003 mark.

Crypto gainers and losers: The bottom line

While most of the cryptocurrency fallers in April were newcomer coins, the top coin movers were often driven by a change in their protocol or marketing wins. 

Please note that past performance does not guarantee future returns. Cryptocurrencies are highly volatile. Past performance should not be used as a substitute to your own research. Always conduct your own due diligence such as looking at the project’s utility and fundamentals. And never invest or trade money you cannot afford to lose.

The difference between trading assets and CFDs
The main difference between CFD trading and trading assets, such as commodities and stocks, is that you don’t own the underlying asset when you trade on a CFD.
You can still benefit if the market moves in your favour, or make a loss if it moves against you. However, with traditional trading you enter a contract to exchange the legal ownership of the individual shares or the commodities for money, and you own this until you sell it again.
CFDs are leveraged products, which means that you only need to deposit a percentage of the full value of the CFD trade in order to open a position. But with traditional trading, you buy the assets for the full amount. In the UK, there is no stamp duty on CFD trading, but there is when you buy stocks, for example.
CFDs attract overnight costs to hold the trades (unless you use 1-1 leverage), which makes them more suited to short-term trading opportunities. Stocks and commodities are more normally bought and held for longer. You might also pay a broker commission or fees when buying and selling assets direct and you’d need somewhere to store them safely.
