Uphold Launches Trailing Stop Order for Crypto – Not Offered By Any Other Major US Trading Platform

Maximizes Potential for Upside While Protecting From Downside via Automated Sell Order Set By Customer

SAN FRANCISCO, June 6, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Today, Uphold, the Web3 financial platform, becomes the only centralized crypto trading venue in the United States to offer Trailing Stop orders for customers.

Uphold becomes the only centralized crypto trading venue in the United States to offer Trailing Stop orders.

Unlike a simple Stop Order that sells based on a price fall against the user’s initial purchase price, a Trailing Stop order readjusts to the current highest price. The customer chooses the percentage that automatically triggers the sell order.

The Uphold platform is uniquely positioned to offer this feature to customers. Unlike traditional single-order book exchanges, Uphold executes through 29 centralized, decentralized and Layer 2 trading venues. This architecture delivers deep liquidity, redundancy and the ability to satisfy Trailing Stop sell orders during acute market readjustments with the minimal possible price slippage.

Uphold also recently launched Take Profit orders which enable users to set an automatic sell order based upon a customer-set percentage increase from the purchase price.

“A Trailing Stop order allows a customer to keep a trade open while the price moves in their favor and automatically get out if the price falls further than they’d like,” said Simon McLoughlin, Chief Executive Officer of Uphold. “It provides set-and-forget comfort for people who are too busy to constantly monitor the market and provides a sensible way for users to harvest crypto volatility while protecting themselves from excessive risk.”
