Cryptocurrency Exchange News
Cryptocurrency exchanges are an integral part of how people and institutions access Bitcoin (BTC) and other digital assets, yet these services didn’t arrive until over a year after Bitcoin’s launch.
In the early days, the predominant means of acquiring Bitcoin was by either mining or direct, peer-to-peer exchange. When the first crypto exchange, BitcoinMarket.com, launched in spring 2010, people could finally access the burgeoning cryptocurrency industry without technically demanding mining, risky P2P deals or the critical responsibility of key management.
Cryptocurrency exchanges can be incredibly lucrative, daunting, risky enterprises, as they navigate a rapidly maturing industry, shifting regulatory frameworks and adversaries looking for any vulnerability.
Nevertheless, exchange platforms will continue to be critical to the industry, as they provide the primary bridges between the world of fiat and the world of crypto.
