However, Indian government clearly stated that Cryptocurrency cannot be termed as legal tender.

  • Binance

 

  • Bittrex

 

  • Bitfinex

 

  • Coinbase

 

  • Kraken

Everything is managed by the users itself, giving them the maximum transparency and flexibility. Although, Decentralized Exchanges have their own disadvantages like poor UI, low liquidity and doesn’t deal with huge amount of transaction.

Exchanges have all your private data like email-id, personal details, details about all the transactions and IP address. There is high risk of the website getting hacked and losing the invested money. Such incidents occurred in 2019 when personal data was stolen and huge amount of funds were demanded by hackers.

World’s well-know centralized exchange, Binance was robbed by 7,000 Bitcoins from their online platform. Binance is famous for its security and innovative products. Beside all this, hackers committed the offense. Later, the loss suffered by the customers were borne by the company but this shows how risky it is to deal with Cryptocurrency.

 

Overcoming Centralized & Decentralized Exchanges Drawbacks:

Alternative for Centralized & Decentralized Exchanges can be the platforms where instant Cryptocurrencies are exchanged without any compulsion of registration and submission of all your personal details.

In the market, ChangeNow is a platform which provides the similar service as mentioned above. ChangeNOW is a non-custodial crypto swap which does not demand any kind of government proof ID, address proof, contact number or email ID. In this platform, users do not need to verify themselves. In simple words, ChangeNow is just a swapping tool. All the major Cryptocurrency is available for trade in this trading platform. This tool can be used by anyone in the world. The platform claims they use an automated risk management system to check all transactions. This can help to gain the trust of traders.

Nonetheless, this cannot be picked as an ideal platform to trade Cryptocurrency. Even this platform has its own set of drawbacks. The major drawback is this platform is a bit high-priced as compared to other. In a nutshell, the trader should keep all the advantages and disadvantages of all the trading platforms available and choose wisely, whichever fits all their needs flawlessly.
