At present, there are numerous platforms on the digital currency market offering the possibility of buying or selling cryptocurrencies. Do you remember the name of the first one or which of them was the most successful on an international scale? If not, we invite you to read it.
The Bitcoinmarket.com stock exchange is a priority.
Bitcoinmarket.com started operating on 17 March 2010. It was then managed by dwdollar user associated with the popular bitcointalk forum. The mentioned website showed the current Bitcoin (BTC) price chart in US dollars (USD). Its users could trade coins of the oldest cryptographer using the PayPal payment method. The large amount of fraud caused the Bitcoinmarket.com platform to be closed down on 4 June 2011.
Mt.gox, one of the largest digital currency platforms, is falling as a result of an attack carried out by cybercriminals.
Mt. Goź is a cryptic exchange launched in July 2010. At that time it was one of the largest digital currency exchanges in the world. It is worth noting that in 2014 Mt. Gox handled about 70% of all transactions conducted in Bitcoin (BTC). Unfortunately, 850 thousand virtual BTC coins were stolen from her resources as a result of a cyber attack. The theft resulted in the suspension of its operations in February 2014, and less than 2 months later, its liquidation began.
It is worth noting that some time later 200 thousand stolen Bitcoins (BTC) were recovered. The evidence presented in 2015 clearly indicated that the vast majority of the cryptcurrencies was removed from Mt. Gox’s hot portfolio at the end of 2011.
Changpeng Zhao with Binance one of the richest digital currencies in the world
Changpeng Zhao, the CEO of the Binance digital currency platform, was on the list of the richest people associated with the crypto industry in 2018. This list was traditionally prepared by Forbes. The stock exchange, which Changpeng Zhao manages to this day, has quite quickly achieved great success. At the moment it is among the leading digital currency platforms with the highest turnover volume. As you probably know very well, it is also one of the most recognizable brands.
Decentralised exchanges operate in the vicinity of centralised exchanges.
According to experts in the subject, decentralisation is the key to the development of digital currencies. Despite this fact, digital asset trading continues to be conducted mainly on centralised exchanges. However, it is worth bearing in mind that DEX, i.e. decentralised exchanges, has appeared on the market.
How does DEX differ from traditional exchanges? We have already explained: all transactions carried out with them use blockchain technology. They are also not subject to the control of any companies or other institutions. The transaction fees are also generally lower than on centralised exchanges. The big disadvantage of decentralised exchanges, however, is the low trading volume and the fact that they are not yet as popular. It is also very difficult to use bots on them. This generally translates into lower liquidity and certainly deters investors.
