If you are interested in trading virtual currencies, this competition is for you! Here’s why:

The Forex Article Contest is a special environment for exchanging valuable personal knowledge and first-hand experience in transacting using digital money, e.g. Bitcoins, Litecoins, Peercoins, etc. By sharing your insights on cryptocurrency trading, you help other people expand their understanding of, and become more intelligent and competent in, this trading space.

FXOpen Announces the Results of the CryptoCurrency Trading Forex Article Contest

FXOpen is pleased to announce the results of the recently concluded Forex Article Contest (http://blog.fxopen.com/exchange-your-knowledge-for-bitcoins-write-about-cryptotrading-within-forex-article-contest/). This summer competition’s topic was “CryptoCurrency Trading” and was open to everyone willing to share their knowledge of e-money transactions and their specifics.


The Top 7 authors whose articles were deemed exemplary by the expert judges are:

1st place – Rina Kustina (http://blog.fxopen.com/my-way-to-success-in-crypto-currency-trading/) – US$400
2nd place – Elena Puliaeva (http://blog.fxopen.ru/matematicheskij-podhod-k-torgovle-kriptovalyutami-v-terminale-mt4/) – US$300
3rd place – Deathop (http://blog.fxopen.com/cryptocurrency-trading/)– US$200
4th place – Kiril Ichetovkin (http://blog.fxopen.ru/formiruem-gramotny-j-invest-portfel-iz-valyutny-h-par-forex-tovarov-birzhevy-h-indeksov-i-kriptovalyut/) – US$150
5th place – Petar Kotevski (http://blog.fxopen.com/bitcoin-feeds-on-the-tears-of-altcoins/)– US$150
6th place – Aleksandr Semkin (http://blog.fxopen.ru/industriya-kriptovalyut-rannij-rynok/) – US$50
7th place – Dmitri Shishkin (http://blog.fxopen.ru/eti-zagadochnye-kriptovalyuty/) – US$50

The special People's Choice Award of US$100 goes to Zinchenko Valeriy (http://blog.fxopen.ru/molodaya-kriptovalyuta-bitcoin/). His article was the “most liked and shared” among the company’s followers in the social networks.

This round of the Forex Article Contest is, by far, the most difficult and complicated one. All of the participants had to adhere to the strict requirements with regard to the topic.

Cryptocurrency trading is a relatively new direction in the foreign exchange market. Therefore, there is little information out there regarding the role and influence of the digital money on market traders and on the industry as a whole. The articles submitted within the competition can be viewed as a valuable knowledge base for this emerging Forex trend.

FXOpen would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the participants who sent in their entries.
