What Is a Cryptocurrency Exchange?
Cryptocurrency exchanges are platforms that allow traders to buy and sell cryptocurrencies, derivatives and other crypto-related assets. Nowadays, there is a wide variety of crypto exchanges to choose from, and they all have advantages in one aspect or another. Find out more about the best crypto exchanges, and select the one to help you meet your crypto-related investment goals.
Top Crypto Exchanges Globally
Crypto exchanges first started emerging with the release of the Bitcoin white paper in 2008. Ever since the original cryptocurrency launched globally, crypto exchanges began looking for ways to make crypto-trading legal and accessible to more people. The first couple of years after the release of Bitcoin were quite turbulent, with many exchanges tumbling under legislative pressure. However, some of the top crypto exchanges of the time managed to persevere and become leaders, holding their position to the present day.
One of the most prominent names in the crypto exchanges industry is Binance . Founded in 2017, the exchange quickly reached the number one spot by trade volumes, registering more than USD 36 billion in trades by the beginning of 2021. Gemini is another big name in the cryptocurrency exchange sphere. Founded in 2014 by none other than the Winklevoss twins, Gemini has managed to solidify its position in the charts with more than USD 175 million in trading volume generated. Not only that, but the Winklevoss brothers also launched the Gemini Dollar token .
Last but not least, there is Coinbase , the largest exchange by trading volume in the United States, and probably the most prominent name out there. Brian Armstrong and Fred Ehrsam founded Coinbase in 2012, and today it has customers in more than one hundred and ninety countries globally. The exchange processes large trading volumes, reaching a total of more than USD 2 billion at the beginning of 2021.
