What is a crypto exchange?

Crypto exchanges are platforms where users can trade digital currencies for Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), and other assets, including regular currencies such as the USD, AUD, SGD, GBP, and Euro.


Exchanges are an essential part of the crypto ecosystem as most traditional investment firms don’t offer cryptocurrencies in their portfolios. Without an exchange, you need to find someone else willing to trade crypto and agree on an exchange rate. Then, you have to send the coins directly to each other’s cryptocurrency wallets – a somewhat complicated process.

Crypto wallets vs exchanges

Both crypto wallets and exchanges are essential tools used to manage cryptocurrencies. Wallets are meant to keep your crypto funds safe, while exchanges are trading hubs where users convert fiat currencies into digital currencies and buy or sell crypto based on current market rates.

Offered by exchanges and independent developers.

Maybe an online-only platform, a physical storage device, or may include both aspects.

Many crypto exchanges manage their own wallets, so users can start trading crypto as soon as they open their accounts without having to worry about getting their own digital wallets. These are known as web-hosted wallets, and their integrated exchange is responsible for their security measures.

Serious traders are encouraged to have an independent cryptocurrency wallet to store coins they are not actively trading. Because the exchange is hacked you can lose all your digital assets.

Although you will be responsible for securing, backing up, and managing your own funds, independent digital wallets are a much safer option for securing the bulk of your crypto.
