Decentralized vs. Centralized

⚫ What is Decentralized Exchange?

A decentralized exchange is an exchange market that does not rely on third party service to hold customer’s funds. Decentralized exchanges also do not store any coins or private keys on central servers. Thus, hackers have to work significantly harder to track down these assets and the passwords which protect them. Trades here occur directly between users (peer to peer) through an automated process. Participants of a decentralized network have the power over their funds instead of a central authority. The promise of trustless decentralized exchanges is taking the middleman out of the picture altogether thanks to automation. Multi-signature escrow measures and proxy tokens are but a few of the ways such trustless is achieved.

Pros:
•   User control their own funds
•   Anonymous
•   No hack for central server
•   No risk of server downtime
•   No personal documents to apply or register



Cons:
•   Not easy to use (not for beginners but you can explore)
•   Basic exchange features of currency for a predetermined value
•   Low Liquidity
•   Some exchanges require users to be online in order for an order to be listed and for the trade to take place.




⚫ What is Centralized Exchange?

A centralized exchange is a website that handles the trading of bitcoin to fiat or other cryptocurrencies. An exchange's purpose is to allow you to trade BTC for fiat currency and to other cryptocurrencies (like litecoin, eth, etc, ripple, xmr). Intermediaries such as companies act as middle men in order to facilitate trading on their platform. In exchange for providing this service, intermediaries collect trading fees. In essence, centralized exchanges often act as the first point of contact for newcomers that are interested in trading cryptocurrency. Many individuals seek to have an interface that can connect them to both cryptocurrency trading and the real economy, and centralized exchanges provide that.

CounterParty
➡️ The Counterparty DEX works with the Bitcoin blockchain to facilitate decentralized, P2P trading of cryptocurrencies.  Counterparty itself is billed as a “financial platform,” and the platform’s DEX is a natural extension of its mission to create an ecosystem of P2P applications atop bitcoin. The Counterparty ecosystem allows for the creation of new digital assets, and these novel assets can be traded freely upon the Counterparty DEX. If you hear others talk about “tokenization,” it’s platform’s like Counterparty’s decentralized exchange that will help turn this trend into a social zeitgeist.

EtherDelta
➡️ *Word of caution: EtherDelta was recently acutely compromised, so just be sure to triple check social media out of habit going forward before transacting through the DEX.
EtherDelta has its place, as some users flock there to get Ethereum-based ERC20 tokens that haven’t been listed elsewhere yet. For instance, in recent weeks EtherDelta has had new tokens trading on the exchange immediately post-ICO, helping to establish the very first markets for said tokens.

Etherdelta’s Introduction ⬇️
✔️ EtherDelta is a decentralized trading platform that lets you trade Ether and Ethereum-based tokens directly with other users.

Oasis

The project explains itself as a “a liquidity pool on the Ethereum blockchain. [Oasis’ native] Simple Market and Matching Market smart contracts provide for the trustless atomic exchange of ERC20 tokens without third party counter-risk.
The Oasis DEX joins a growing trend on exchanges that are catering specifically to facilitating trades between Ethereum-based ERC20 tokens.

Oasis Introduction ⬇️
✔️ Oasis is a simple on-chain market for all token assets in the Maker registry; MKR, DAI, ETH and more to follow.
✔️ It aims to handle the backbone of trade and exchange by focusing on being good for large orders, which needs stuff like custom logic and high security, but it can also work as a regular exchange if it has a good GUI that handles the order search and does a human-friendly display of the markets.
✔️ The "Simple Market" implementation doesn't have a matching engine, but someone could of course write a layer on top of it that provides such an engine.
✔️ You'll need to run an Ethereum client, such as Mist, MetaMask or Parity Browser.



Openledger
➡️ OpenLedger, found online at OpenLedger.info, is primarily a cryptocurrency trading platform. However, the platform also includes an advertising technology called HubDSP, tokens called OBITS, and a crowdfunding system called ICOO.

OpenLedger is more than just an exchange. It’s a collection of ecosystems. OpenLedger visualizes their ecosystems as like a collection of solar systems in a galaxy (seriously, that’s the visual they use on their official website).

Although regulation in the cryptoverse is often times a bit shaky, this company has some history in dealing with the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC). Despie claiming they should not fall under any dervatives regulation, Bitfinex did pay a fine to the CFTC regarding a particular case. Of course, we are talking about the famous hacking scandal. As of November 9 2017, Bitfinex will no longer accept US clients in any form.

The focus at Kraken is pair trading of cryptocurrencies and the US Dollar. Margin trading and high-margin trading are available. Kraken would be best for high-volume traders and professionals that need to comply with U.S. financial regulations.
This exchange is audited and goes out of its way to comply with U.S. law. Individual traders would be best served by some of the more consumer-friendly exchanges.

Radar Relay
➡️ Radar Relay is new cryptocurrency software that will enable you to trade ERC20 tokens from your own home without having to go through services like online cryptocurrency exchanges. At the moment, you will be able to trade ERC20 tokens directly from your Web3 of Hardware wallet without the need of a middlemen company.
What Radar Relay creates is the possibility to send orders to the market. The company does not move your assets, you do that yourself via smart contracts. The only thing that the company does is to find other people whose order match yours to enable this transaction that will be made directly via you and the other investor. Radar Relay uses 0x Protocol to do this.

Radar Relay’s Introduction ⬇️
✔️ We relay orders between peers. The 0x Protocol moves tokens between wallets. Together, we’re a new kind of decentralized exchange where the platform itself is distributed.  
✔️ Unlike other exchanges, we never hold custody of your tokens. Come maintenance or mishaps, tokens stay accessible in your wallet. No hidden escrow or exit strategies.
✔️ We can link other relayers to create networks of liquidity, not just isolated pools. This gives you increased access to tokens and less transferring to and from exchanges.
