Do you remember when all that was available for sale was Bitcoin? Probably not. Most of the people in the cryptocurrency world have entered years after Bitcoin was created. Over the years, thousands of different cryptocurrencies were created by people all over the world. You could start your own cryptocurrency tomorrow if you would like. Now, if you want people to start using your currency, they have to buy this token or coin somewhere. This can be done in several different places. Today, we’ll have a look at some of these places and how they differentiate themselves from the rest. 

Cryptocurrency Exchange

An exchange is a service that’s similar to the alternatives available for traditional markets such as forex or stocks. It’s a place where you can trade currencies. At the moment, one of the most known exchanges is Binance. The company allows margin trading, regular trading and has fiat-gateways for lots of different currencies. When you want to use an exchange, you have to create an account connected to your email address. When you reach a certain limit, you have to verify your identity with either your passport, driver’s license or your identity card. On the exchange, you can deposit your currencies into your account and afterward, exchange these funds for other coins. You must be aware that not every coin can be traded for every coin. For example; I can not trade Verge (XVG) for Stellar (XLM) directly on the Binance platform. I have to sell my Verge tokens first in exchange for Bitcoin, then buy Stellar with my Bitcoin. So to sum it up;

  • In most cases, you need to verify your identity to use the exchange
  • You are limited to the available trading pairs
  • You do not own the private keys of the wallets connected to your account

Crypto Exchange Service

One thing most exchanges have in common is their openness for partnerships. You can integrate their API and by doing so connect any trading bot or service to these exchanges. This way, you can benefit from their volume and trading pairs, but you do not have to sacrifice your privacy. An exchange service allows cryptocurrency holders to exchange their tokens directly for any other coin. For example, you exchange your Chainlink (LINK) directly for Monero (XMR) on the exchange service. Behind the scenes, they exchange the Chainlink for Bitcoin and the Bitcoin for XMR. Another important factor, the funds never leave your control. They are deposited into a smart contract and afterward, you receive the exchanged tokens back into your wallet. To sum this up;

  • Instantly exchange a big variety of cryptocurrencies for other cryptocurrencies without any strict trading pairs (Some services offer more than 100+ trading pairs)
  • No need to create an account or verify your identity
  • Your funds are directly exchanged from your wallet
