Crypto Exchanges: Centralized vs Decentralized

Crypto Exchanges Centralized vs Decentralized

A cryptocurrency exchange is a gateway for its users to perform crypto to crypto and fiat to crypto trading. Most popular cryptocurrency exchanges today are centralized. This is because roughly 99.8% of crypto trades happen in centralized exchanges as users prefer centralized exchanges over decentralized exchanges. Even though there have been instances of notorious hacks in the past (for example, the infamous Mt. Gox hack), centralized exchanges still dominate the crypto-space by a long shot, though the number of hacks has only continued to increase. Does this mean that traders and investors are willing to sacrifice security for liquidity? Why

Is Thailand Crypto-Friendly?

Governments are vying for a regulated crypto environment. Back in the day, a decade ago, when cryptocurrencies were newborns, most governments hadn’t anticipated that they would grow to the point of mainstream adoption. It was just something regulators had to deal with behind the doors. But with the emergence of ICOs, IEOs, and global cryptocurrency exchanges, governments could no longer turn a blind eye.  Though large support for crypto, about 35-36% of total traders, come from the U.S, South-East Asia is a thriving hub for crypto businesses. Singapore and Hong Kong lead the race with more than and 3.3 Billion

Beldex is Now Shariah Compliant

Beldex is now Shariah Compliant!

Beldex is now Shariah-compliant. This is a huge step for us as it means that the Beldex cryptocurrency exchange complies with the rules of Islamic finance. Shariah sets the guidelines for a way of life for the followers of Islam. Thus, they govern the entirety of a person’s daily activities. This applies to everything, and a digital asset is no exception. Anything that’s prohibited by Shariah is final. Many scholars have discussed the issuance of Shariah compliance certification to blockchain and digital asset firms. Right now, in the cryptocurrency environment, a number of crypto exchanges are trying to become Shariah-compliant.

Transcending Borders: Global Currencies of the Future

Transcending borders: Global currencies of the future

Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are considered global currencies as they transcend borders. Many cryptocurrency exchanges today facilitate the investment and trade of these global currencies. But even before Bitcoin was conceived in 2008 and launched in 2009, various leaders, economists, and educationalists have proposed ideas for the establishment of a single currency without borders. The SDR or the Special Drawing Right, though not a currency but a unit-of-account, is the very first attempt at establishing a world currency. The SDR is relevant today only for Governments and not for the general public as their sole purpose is to act as

Alts Soar High as Bitcoin Staggers to Break Resistance

Bitcoin fails to break resistance and is staggering at the $7700 – $8000 mark. Bitcoin’s dominance went down by almost 2.96% in the last 30 days from 69.10% to 66.14% on the 17th of October, 2019. What this reduction in BTC dominance means is that Alts are gobbling it up. A few of the altcoins, and especially privacy coins are indicating a bullish uptrend. Alt season on the horizon? A few of the altcoins are seeing a bearish divergence and trend reversals at the bottom while bitcoin sees a bullish divergence and a trend reversal at the top. When Bitcoin’s

How to buy Beldex (BDX) Coin?

How to buy beldex bdx coin

Beldex is one of the world’s first cryptocurrency exchanges to be powered by a privacy coin. The Beldex coin (BDX) refurbishes Monero’s cryptographic privacy and takes it to a whole new level. Regular cryptocurrencies reveal too much information that can be linked to personal identities. This information includes the amount, sender address and receiver address of a user. A privacy coin’s blockchain conceals such critical information.  How does it work?
