The six cryptocurrency exchanges that support the buying and selling of Kaspa.
A cryptocurrency exchange is a platform that allows users to buy, sell, and trade cryptocurrencies. Cryptocurrency exchanges can either be centralized or decentralized.
Centralized exchanges (CEXs) are platforms that operate as a centralized authority, meaning that they control users’ assets and manage transactions on behalf of their users. Although centralized exchanges are usually frowned upon for their control over digital assets, CEXs typically have more capabilities across different crypto chains and remain the best way to exchange fiat currencies for digital currencies.
On the other hand, decentralized exchanges (DEXs) are platforms that operate on a decentralized blockchain network, meaning that users have more control over their assets. The exchange is not subject to the same level of regulation as centralized exchanges.
