Crypto Exchange

A cryptocurrency exchange, or crypto exchange, is a digital marketplace where users may buy, sell, and trade different cryptocurrencies. It serves as a middleman, enabling exchanges between buyers and sellers and offering a secure setting in which to do so.

Centralized exchanges (CEX) and decentralized exchanges (DEX) are two different types of cryptocurrency exchanges, each having its own advantages and characteristics.
