Hello Ryan,

The difference between cryptocurrencies and stocks is a major topic for discussion. Despite the revolving around exchanges, their trading techniques are usually different.
Crypto markets do not operate over a centralized system. They are typically not regulated, unlike the stock markets.
One major difference between cryptocurrency trading and stock trading is a proprietorship. Unlike stocks where if you contribute a single unit off, you are at least guaranteed ownership of a part of the company. Cryptocurrency will not guarantee your ownership.
It is also much easier to purchase cryptocurrencies than it is to purchase stocks.
Though owning a cryptocurrency is much easy, this does not entitle you to legal rights, unlike in stock trading, where you are entitled to legal rights.
Another difference comes about in the Howey test. A Howey test will determine whether an asset will be classified as a security or not.
A Howey test will determine whether the transaction that takes place will represent an investment contract.

Hi,

The only similarity between stock and cryptocurrency trading is the word trading. Differences are outstanding. Stock markets have strict regulations and laws against insider trading. Crypto trading doesn’t.
Once you purchase stocks through a brokerage, you have entitlement to cash and stock insurance through FDIC and SIPC. The US doesn’t recognize cryptocurrencies, meaning crypto trading doesn’t enjoy insurance security.
Stock trading takes place publicly and enjoys backing from revenue-generating and asset-holding entities. Cryptos, and their related tokens, rest almost entirely on thin air.
Cryptocurrency exchanges transact online exclusively exposing investors to hackers. Furthermore, transactions are not reversible and investors have no legal avenue for recourse. Stocks do suffer phishing and scams but never vanish into thin air. In stocks, stolen money transactions can be reversed.
Anyone can create their own cryptocurrency but shares need to be issued by private firms. Blockchain can be generated by anyone. Shares, particularly those traded on the Dow, NASDAQ, or NYSE, abide by recognized rules before they reach the market.

Hey Ryan,

While both sides have exchanges, crypto and stocks differ in their trading approaches. The first distinguishing factor is market reach. From maturity periods and approvals to regulations and business hours, stock trading isn’t accessible to everyone.
Conversely, cryptocurrency exchanges run nonstop, allowing immediate response to market triggers, for example, news. Crypto also supports the creation of blockchain ledgers and the subsequent development of your own ICO.
When it comes to safety, stocks carry the day. In the U.S., your stocks and funds get $500,000 each as insurance in case your broker goes under. Moreover, stolen cash can be reversed. Contrarily, crypto exchanges don’t offer insurance save for a few services like Coinbase. The absence of your name on digital coins also exposes you to theft.
Not forgetting crypto volatility that is necessary for making profits. The unsteady values can be attributed to frequent security breaches, speculation, even market manipulation. A stock’s strength, however, is measured by its stability, thus, explaining why panic-selling is more rampant in crypto markets.
