In the rapidly evolving blockchain ecosystem, grasping new financial opportunities is essential in achieving long-term success. Long gone are the days when crypto investors would just hold their coins and tokens in a wallet and wait for the price to grow.

Nowadays, blockchain enthusiasts in countries such as SA can maximise their crypto income by arbitrage trading. But what is arbitrage trading really, and why is it getting so popular?

What is arbitrage trading?

Arbitrage trading means profiting from price differences on different cryptocurrency exchanges in different countries. Depending on the specific fiat currency pair, bitcoin purchases can be more or less pricey. 

The price differences between countries are caused by various country-specific policies regarding cryptocurrencies, and by different supply levels of currencies such as the US dollar or euro.

For example, purchasing bitcoin (BTC) with US dollars (USD) is slightly cheaper than buying bitcoin with rand (ZAR). Over the past few years, the price of bitcoin evaluated in ZAR was on average almost 5% lower than BTC’s value in USD.

In other words, crypto investors in SA can easily generate profit simply by purchasing BTC with USD on a foreign market, and then selling it for ZAR locally.

Is arbitrage trading safe?

The main problem with arbitrage trading was that high market volatility could endanger the profitability of trading crypto between different markets. However, thanks to exchanges such as Ovex providing professional arbitrage trading services, it’s possible to profit from arbitrage trading in a maximally secure way, with fully mitigated risk.

With Ovex, profiting from arbitrage trading always guarantees you a capital gain.
