Bitseven says the following about their platform:
The core matching engine is one of the best-in-class technologies and has been recognized for its fault tolerance, uptime, and high availability by implementing innovative features such as real-time clearing and advanced order matching algorithms.
Bitseven guarentees an up-time of almost 100%. Why is this important? A lot of users as for example at Bitmex are complaining about the downtime, especially in times when Bitcoin is volatile. Traders would like to work with a platform that is available at any time, especially in times were big bugs are made.

When you take a look at their Social platform, Facebook, Youtube, we don’t see a high following base, but on the other hand, their volume in Google is big. Bitseven is only around for a short period of time so their user base is questionable.
On their website Bitseven states the following:
The development of the platform is a collaboration between software developers, financial professionals, and experienced traders from around the globe.
Unfortunately we are not able to find much more information about the founders of the platform.

What is leverage trading?
Leverage allows you to open a position that is larger than the balance of your account.
Suppose you fund an account with $2,000. Using leverage, you could open a $4,000 BTC/USD position(leverage 2x) with this account (long or short). If you close this position for a 20% gain, your account balance will grow by 40% ($800). This amplified upside potential is why traders find leverage exciting. Leverage is a very powerful tool because it can amplify your gains, but it’s also dangerous because it can amplify your losses as well, and even wipe out your account if you aren’t careful.
Opening a leveraged position should be considered a short-term trade, not a long-term investment.
Sensible risk management should be employed when using leveraged positions: you should set both stop loss and a profit target for every open position.
At Bitseven you are able to trade 100x leverage on Bitcoin, 50x leverage on Ethereum, 40x leverage on Litecoin and 30x leverage on Ripple.
Your first trade
When you have selected the correct crypto you can start with your first trade. In the image below we show an overview of Bitcoin. First you will see the price trend of Bitcoin in a graph. On the right you see the order book with the current price of Bitcoin on the Bitseven platform, which is currently $ 10,658.50.
When you place an order on Bitseven you have a number of options. Market order vs limit order. A market order immediately fixes the current bitcoin price and, as it were, buys the orders out of the order book until your order is filled. You set a limit order for a price that will remain unchanged. When Bitcoin reaches your desired price, your order will be triggered and activated.
You have 2 options, Buy order up vs buy order down. Here you could make a choice for your expected price trend when your order is activated. On Bitseven you also have the opportunity to earn money if you successfully predict that the Bitcoin price will go down.
You have the option to automatically sell your order when it is in 100% profit to already ensure that you close your order on that desired result.
Ultimately you can select how much leverage you want to trade with. Keep this in mind, that every percent that moves the rate also determines your bet with a multiple of the chosen leverage. With a price movement of 10 percent and a leverage of 10X you could already be liquidated.
Enter the amount of Bitcoin in the calculator and start with your first trade. You will receive a confirmation in a pop-up with your order before it is executed so you are able to check everything in a small overview.
