Cryptocurrency exchanges are becoming integral to the crypto-asset ecosystem. These digital asset exchanges are businesses that allow customers to buy, sell, or trade digital currencies for other assets including conventional fiat money or other digital currencies. These crypto exchanges can also function as market makers that take bid-ask spreads as transaction commissions for their services or charge fees as a matching platform.
Regulated exchanges are private companies that offer crypto trading platforms. These exchanges require registration and identification to comply with Know Your Customer (KYC) or Anti-Money Laundering regulations. Some countries have embraced crypto-assets; others have been more reticent to permit widespread adoption.
