P2P EXCHANGES

by DeFi Daddy

Peer-to-peer exchanges are marketplaces where people can trade crypto directly with each other. They provide a technical platform on which buyers and sellers can settle trades on their own terms. Unlike traditional exchanges, they don’t process any fiat payments or hold users funds in custody. This light setup allows them to operate in virtually any country and be subjected to much less regulation than normal cryptocurrency exchanges.
