eToro currently has 56 cryptocurrencies available to trade.
The minimum trade size is $10 / £7.40 (for UK citizens).
Spread fees (the difference between the buy and sell price) range from 0.75% up to 4.9%. The fee depends on the crypto asset you purchase. The higher the demand, the smaller the spread will be. For example, Bitcoin, which is always in high demand, has a spread fee of 0.75% per trade, whilst Quant, where the demand is low, has a fee of 4.9%.
Spread fees are taken to cover the broker’s cost for executing orders.

As well as trading cryptocurrencies on eToro, you can also stake your crypto assets while you HODL. Currently supported crypto assets are Cardano, Tron and Ethereum. eToro takes a small fee when staking your coins so make sure you carefully read their terms & and fees.
eToro introduced cryptocurrencies in 2017 after successfully offering crypto CFDs.
On 6 January 2021, cryptocurrency derivatives were pulled from the trading platform after the FCA banned the sale of crypto CFDs to retail investors.
