Digital projects are gaining momentum every year and the concept of digital economy is increasingly often found in magazines about business and finance. The reason for this was the rapid development of the cryptocurrency market and the active investors’ interest in them.

This is happening due to the depreciation of fiat currency, to the development of Internet technologies and to the massive transition to online. The advantages of cryptocurrency are definitely obvious – they are protected from inflation better, their operating commission is really lower, their safety does not cause reasons for panic and it is not difficult to sell or buy them. Cryptocurrency exchanges are intended for that and their number is growing globally every year.

Stanislav Kondrashov, the analyst at Telf AG, a consulting services company, has explained what crypto exchanges are, how they work and what digital platforms are considered to be the best in 2020. Read more Latestinfo News.

What is a cryptocurrency exchange and how it works

A cryptocurrency exchange is a digital trading platform for exchanging one cryptocurrency for another at a set rate.

Now there are more than 160 popular cryptocurrency trading platforms. Each of them differs from the others in trading volumes, reliability, security and in the number of altcoins and tokens presented.

In general, the crypto exchange works on the same principle as all other trading platforms – you buy and sell and make money out of the difference. But the speed of transactions there is sky high. “This happens because the applications contain only the offers secured by the user’s account. This reduces time expenditure to a minimum.” – the business consultant at Telf AG Mr.Kondrashov said.

The expert has clarified that the main source of income for crypto exchanges is the commission for each transaction, as well as for the withdrawal of funds. Encashment is more expensive for the user – 2-3% more than the commission per transaction.

It is due to the fact that crypto exchanges are interested in a huge number of transactions. The following principle is applied here: the more – the better. In this case you can make money out of turnovers.” – the expert specified. He also added that information about users, their accounts, the number and sum of transactions are stored on special servers which often become objects of hacker attacks.

Therefore, the security of cryptocurrency exchanges is one of the most urgent tasks nowadays.
