United States - 14 August, 2023 - Cryptocurrency exchanges like Binance and Coinbase, P2P (peer-to-peer) platforms such as Excoinz and Paxful serve different purposes and have distinct characteristics. Here are the main differences between the two, along with the advantages of P2P platforms over regular exchanges:
1. Nature of Transactions:
- Cryptocurrency exchanges: Members of traditional cryptocurrency exchanges buy and sell to the exchange. Users can place market orders (buy/sell at current market price) or limit orders (set a specific price at which they want to buy/sell).
- P2P Platforms: P2P platforms connect individual buyers and sellers directly, without the involvement of an intermediary. Users on these platforms can create their own offers or respond to existing offers from other users. P2P platforms often support various payment methods, and the trade terms are negotiated between the parties involved.
2. Payment Methods:
- Cryptocurrency Exchanges: Traditional exchanges typically support deposits and withdrawals in cryptocurrencies and, in some cases, fiat currencies. However, the available payment methods may be limited, depending on the platform and its regulations.
- P2P Platforms: P2P platforms support a wide range of payment methods, including bank transfers, cash payments, digital wallets, gift cards, and more. This flexibility can make it easier for users from different regions to participate in trading.
3. Availability and Liquidity:
- Cryptocurrency Exchanges: Established exchanges usually have higher liquidity, meaning there are more active buyers and sellers, resulting in faster and more efficient trades.
- P2P Platforms: P2P platforms' liquidity may vary depending on the specific market and region. While they may not always have the same liquidity as large exchanges, they can still provide access to cryptocurrencies in areas with limited exchange services.
Advantages of P2P Platforms over Regular Exchanges:
1. Diverse Payment Options: P2P platforms support a wide array of payment methods, making it easier for users with different preferences and access to various financial systems to trade cryptocurrencies.
2. Due to the nature of personal transactions, travel rules are not applicable. Therefore, in the event of an urgent situation in which cryptocurrency must be purchased and transferred immediately, there is an advantage in rapid transactions that cannot be processed by traditional exchanges.
3. Reduced Dependence on Intermediaries: P2P platforms enable direct peer-to-peer transactions, eliminating the need for an intermediary, which can be attractive to users who prefer a decentralized approach.
4. Users can directly become vendors of cryptocurrency and earn profits, such as generating their own offers in the platform.
5. Another unique feature of the P2P platform is the revenue structure in which users directly promote the platform through the Affiliate Program and form their own member network to receive a certain fee from the platform according to the members' transactions.
In summary, traditional cryptocurrency exchanges offer higher liquidity and a more standardized trading experience, while P2P platforms such as Excoinz offer unique advantages such as various payment options, members' different revenue programs, and greater privacy and accessibility in areas with limited financial infrastructure. The choice between the two depends on individual preferences, requirements, and specific use cases of users.
