Exchanges, also called brokers, are intermediaries for buying and selling cryptocurrencies . Such institutions facilitate the trading of these assets, providing liquidity and ensuring that each party receives what has been agreed.
The process of opening an exchange account is similar to opening an account with a securities firm. However, there is an important difference between the two cases, which we will explain below.
By opening an account with a securities brokerage in Brazil, you can trade the assets with other brokerages. For example, if you sell a share through broker X, another person can buy it through broker Y, because in this case both brokerages are linked to Bovespa.
With Crypto Exchanges , on the other hand, this relationship with external institutions is not possible. Therefore, cryptocurrencies will be traded with people who use the same exchange as you.
For those who operate, is there any difference with the change in the relationship between institutions?
Yup. The price of a certain asset may differ from one exchange to another . In short, each exchange is both a market and an intermediary.
