A virtual currency exchange (cryptocurrency exchange) is a virtual currency trading platform, it is like an “online bank”, providing virtual currency (cryptocurrency) transactions, buying and selling (for example: Bitcoin, Ethereum or dog money) on the Internet Dogecoin) and other investment businesses.

Virtual currency exchange form

Although virtual currency exchanges (cryptocurrency exchanges) are not regulated or controlled by any central bank or government agency; there are still two types of distinction:

  • Centralized exchange (English: Centralized exchange, abbreviation: CEX ): refers to an exchange controlled and supervised by a third party.
  • Decentralized exchange (English: Decentralized Exchange, abbreviation: DEX ): refers to an exchange that is not controlled or supervised by anyone.

Today’s content will mainly focus on “centralized exchanges”. However, before starting the introduction, readers should be reminded that virtual currency (cryptocurrency) is an extremely high-risk investment project. It’s never too late to enter the market after doing your homework! So, let’s get down to business!

Precautions for buying and selling virtual currency?

Don’t underestimate the small details that you usually pay attention to. They often help you avoid unnecessary losses when something happens to you. So I have listed 3 points, what you should know before buying virtual currency (cryptocurrency).

Precautions for virtual currency: there are many scams in the currency circle

We all know that there are many frauds in the currency circle, but people are still deceived from time to time. The reason is: there is no continuous vigilance . The following share 3 points, common fraud methods.

  • Phishing website (often attracting you to click on the link through email, social platform, private message, etc.)
  • Acting as fake platform customer service, project parties, etc. (intimidating you or telling you to conduct routine platform inspections, etc.)
  • Take advantage of your FOMO (fear of missing out), greedy mentality (lie to you that there are new projects to give away for free)

Precautions for virtual currency: be careful when transferring money

Doing transactions on the blockchain needs to be very careful, because if it is transferred to a virtual currency (cryptocurrency) that does not match the blockchain, the money will be lost. General banks are ” centralized finance (with a third party)”, if there is a problem with the transfer, you can seek help from the customer service staff; while virtual currency (encrypted currency) is ” decentralized finance (without a third party)”, if there is a problem with the transfer , you are responsible for yourself. Even if it is a centralized virtual currency (cryptocurrency) exchange, if there is a chance to help you find the lost coins, you need to pay the salvage fee. So be sure to pay attention to this before transferring money!

Virtual Currency Considerations: The Importance of Wallets

First of all, you need to understand that virtual currency (cryptocurrency) has two types of wallets: cold wallet (cold wallet), hot wallet (hot wallet). You can choose the appropriate one according to your needs.

  • Hot Wallet : Refers to a virtual currency (cryptocurrency) wallet connected to the Internet. All wallets on exchanges are hot wallets, which are less secure, because being connected to the network means there is a chance of being attacked by hackers.
    Suitable for: People with small funds and frequent transactions.
  • Cold wallet : refers to an offline (not connected to the Internet) virtual currency (cryptocurrency) wallet. The cold front wallet needs to be purchased separately. It is a safer storage method, because of its offline characteristics, the risk is greatly reduced.
    Suitable for: People who have a lot of money and hold virtual currency (cryptocurrency) for a long time.

Considerations for choosing a virtual currency exchange?

When choosing a virtual currency exchange (cryptocurrency exchange), be sure to consider 5 factors, namely: security, handling fees, number of currencies, language interface and experience, and customer service. I give a brief explanation below.

  1. Security
    You can consider the evaluation, popularity, and transparency of virtual currency exchanges (cryptocurrency exchanges) as security considerations; a good trading platform can help you determine whether funds are safe in the process of buying and selling, which is very important.
  2. The accumulation of a small amount of handling
    fees will also be a considerable figure. Most of the exchanges will explain the transaction-related handling fees on their websites. If you trade frequently, it is recommended to use this as a consideration for platform selection.
  3. Number of currencies
    Almost all virtual currency exchanges (cryptocurrency exchanges) support Bitcoin (English: Bitcoin, currency code: BTC) and Ethereum (Ether currency) English Ether (currency code: ETH. Currency symbol “Ξ” )trade. But there are still thousands of virtual currencies (cryptocurrencies) circulating in the market. Therefore, if you want to invest in more types of virtual currency (cryptocurrency), you can understand the number of currencies supported by the exchange, and use this as a consideration.
  4. Language interface and experience
    For most Taiwanese, an exchange with a traditional Chinese interface will be more comfortable and smooth to use. The user experience cannot be ignored, but because the experience is more subjective, it is recommended that you take a look at the browsing pages of each exchange.
  5. Customer service
    Customer service is basically a service only available on “centralized exchanges”, so if you choose “decentralized exchanges”, such as: Uniswap , PancakeSwap , Honeyswap …etc, there is no third-party assistance. It is recommended that beginners focus on centralized exchanges with high security, high popularity, and high rankings, and can learn whether the help of customer service meets expectations based on online reviews, messages, and actual measurements.
