BitQT scam or is my money safe?

There is no such thing as an BitQT scam. The broker has taken measures to ensure that everyone can trade safely at BitQT. We discuss them below:

Separate bank account: the broker ensures that all investor funds are held in a separate bank account. The broker may not and cannot use this money for e.g. investments or to pay its staff.
Insurance of your balance sheet up to €20,000: if the impossible happens and the broker goes bankrupt, your balance sheet is insured up to €20,000. You will not lose your entire capital immediately.
Negative balance protection: your balance can never fall below €0. If your investment does not go well, you do not have to clear a negative balance first. You will never lose more money than you have invested.
Stop-loss: you can set in advance what the maximum loss is that you want to suffer on your investment. Your options will be sold at that amount.
All this makes BitQT a reliable broker to deposit money with. The broker has a large number of measures in place. Below is a brief summary in our BitQT review of why the broker is safe:

How is BitQT regulated?

Our BitQT licensing experience is also positive. The broker has a large number of licenses. This is because they offer their services worldwide. For the Dutch, the license from the Central bank of Ireland is important. This gives them the right to operate as a broker within the EU. In addition, the extra control of the AFM makes BitQT reliable. The AFM is the Dutch Financial Markets Authority. This is the authority that controls financial institutions within the Netherlands. Thanks to the licenses you can trade safely as an investor at BitQT. An overview of all licenses:
