Using 100x leverage in trading refers to crypto margin trading. The basics of Bitcoin margin trading are straightforward. To put it simply, Bitcoin margin trades let traders borrow capital to access enhanced buying power and open positions that are larger than their actual account balance. So, you can gain more exposure to a certain instrument by borrowing capital from other traders on an exchange. Unlike regular trading where traders fund trades by using their own capital, margin traders can multiply the amount of capital they may trade.
The term Bitcoin leverage trading refers to trading Bitcoin Contract for Differences (CFDs) to take advantage of the leverage offered by numerous brokers. For instance, if you are trading Bitcoin with a broker offering a leverage of 50:1 on Bitcoin CFDs, you are essentially trading $10,000 worth of Bitcoin by investing only $200.
