Scalable Crypto works

Trading with Crypto ETPs
At Scalable Capital, you can trade crypto as easily and securely as shares or ETFs. Crypto trading is based on exchange-traded crypto products (ETPs). Hence, trading takes place on regulated exchanges such as gettex or Xetra. Your coins are physically deposited with a regulated crypto custodian. Features such as real-time crypto prices and comprehensive information on individual currencies make trading in cryptocurrencies even more intuitive. In addition, the product costs (TER) associated with the crypto ETPs of our PRIME partner CoinShares are credited to you. More details here.

The trading hours of gettex and Xetra apply to crypto trading. On trading days, order placement is possible from 0.15 a.m. to 23.30 p.m.

FAQs

How does trading in cryptocurrencies work at Scalable Crypto?
 

With Scalable Crypto you trade cryptocurrencies as easily as stocks or ETFs on regulated trading venues (Xetra, gettex) in Germany. An investment is possible as a one-time purchase and as a savings plan from 1 euro per month. No separate account, wallet or re-identification is required for this.

Clicking on the "Crypto" button will take you to your personal crypto area. Here, all tradable cryptocurrencies are clearly displayed for you. After clicking on the desired cryptocurrency, you can both set up a savings plan and make purchases/sales in the cryptocurrency.

What are the differences between trading at Scalable Crypto and trading through crypto exchanges?
 

When you buy cryptocurrencies through Scalable Crypto, you buy exchange-traded crypto securities on regulated trading venues (Xetra, gettex) in Germany.
The purchased securities are safely held in your custody account at Baader Bank. The equivalent value of your investment in the corresponding cryptocurrency is held in custody for you at a regulated crypto custodian. In contrast to trading via crypto exchanges, there is no need for you to hold your investment independently in your own crypto wallet.

What cryptocurrencies can I trade at Scalable Crypto?
 

Currently, you can trade the following cryptocurrencies at Scalable Crypto:

  • Bitcoin
  • Ethereum
  • Litecoin
  • Ripple

Solana, Cardano, Tezos, Polygon and Polkadot will also be available soon. You can find all available crypto ETPs here.

Do I need to keep cryptocurrencies on a separate wallet?
 

You do not need your own wallet to trade with Scalable Crypto and you do not need to hold the cryptocurrencies on your own wallet. The custody of the cryptocurrencies is taken over for you by the issuer of the respective crypto security. In this case, the underlying cryptocurrencies are physically deposited with regulated crypto custodians on a cold wallet.

Blockchain analytics firm "Glassnode" estimates the number of lost Bitcoin in independent custody to be around three million. This represents nearly 15 % of the bitcoin ever in circulation.

What are crypto ETPs?
 

Crypto Exchange-Traded Products, or "Crypto ETPs" for short, track the performance of an underlying cryptocurrency. For example, a Bitcoin ETP, minus the issuer's product costs, offers the opportunity to participate in the performance of the cryptocurrency Bitcoin.
At Scalable Crypto, all crypto ETPs are physically collateralized. When investing in physically collateralized Crypto ETPs, the issuer deposits the equivalent value of the investment in the corresponding cryptocurrency with a regulated depository.

How much does crypto trading cost at Scalable Capital?
 

We have published the conditions for trading crypto ETPs on our website.

There are no custody or network costs for you to trade cryptocurrencies. In addition, the ongoing product costs for crypto ETPs from our PRIME partner CoinShares are calculated on a daily basis and credited to your clearing account in the following calendar year in each case.

How are crypto ETPs treated for tax purposes?
 

Crypto ETPs are taxed in the same way as ETFs. Therefore 25 % capital gains tax plus solidarity surcharge and church tax, if applicable, is due on the sale of crypto ETPs.
These are automatically paid to the tax office by the custodian bank or offset against your exemption order. Losses can also be offset against other securities. Thus, when purchasing Crypto ETPs, you benefit from a regulated, simple taxation that can be offset against other financial instruments.

What are the trading hours for trading at Scalable Crypto?
 

For trading at Scalable Crypto, the trading hours of gettex and Xetra apply, just like for shares and ETFs:

gettex: On trading days, Monday to Friday, from 8 am to 10 pm. Stock exchange holidays are excluded. Exchange trading ends at 2 p.m. on Dec. 30. There is no trading on December 31 and January 1.

Xetra: On trading days, Monday to Friday, from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.. Stock exchange holidays are excluded. Trading ends at 2 p.m. on Dec. 30. There is no trading on December 31 and January 1.

On trading days, orders can even be placed around the clock. From 0.15 a.m. to 11.30 p.m. you can create or cancel orders via the customer area. Stop and limit orders placed outside trading hours will be executed at the next possible time during trading hours.

Risks in trading with cryptocurrencies


  • Cryptocurrencies are subject to particularly high price fluctuations. Investors can therefore suffer considerable losses within a very short time (market price risk).
  • Immediate tradability cannot be guaranteed. Investors may not be able to sell their positions immediately or only by realising a significant price loss (liquidity risk).
  • The cryptocurrencies held by the issuers as collateral are stored in wallets by securing private cryptographic keys. Loss of or improper handling of these keys may result in the complete loss of the ability to access the crypto holdings. Lost, unsecured keys cannot be recovered, which may result in losses for the investor (custody risk).
  • At Scalable Broker, exchange-traded securities (exchange-traded products, or ETPs for short) are offered that track the value of cryptocurrencies. These products are bearer bonds of the issuer. The investor thereby receives a claim to a payment or to the delivery of an underlying by the issuer. Should the issuer become insolvent and a possible collateralisation of the product not be of value, the investor can thus suffer a considerable loss up to a total loss (issuer risk).
  • There is also the risk that access to cryptocurrencies is influenced by changing political, legal and regulatory framework conditions. This can have an impact on the value and tradability of cryptocurrencies (legal and political risks).

If the winner is no longer a Scalable Capital customer at the time of payment, the prize will be forfeited and a new draw will be held among the remaining participants in the competition within 7 days in a non-public draw. The prize is not transferable.
To determine the prize amount per winner, all savings plans executed by the winner during the promotional period (03.01.2022 to 31.03.2022) will be added up. The prize amount per person therefore corresponds to the total amount of all savings plans successfully executed by the person during the promotional period (total savings plan amount).

In the event of a breach of these Terms and Conditions, Scalable Capital reserves the right to exclude persons from participating in the sweepstakes and not to pay out any winnings or to subsequently disallow and reclaim any winnings. This applies in particular, but not exclusively, in the event of attempted manipulation of the sweepstakes, untrue information, in particular about one's own person, violation of legal provisions or rights of third parties.
Scalable Capital is not liable for damages that may result from errors, delays or interruptions in transmission, malfunctions of technical equipment or other technical services, incorrect content, loss or deletion of data, computer viruses or in any other way during participation in the sweepstakes, unless such damages are caused by Scalable Capital (its bodies, employees or vicarious agents) intentionally or through gross negligence or through the violation of cardinal obligations.
