  1. Without software development, you don’t even have to think about how to create a cryptocurrency exchange. Therefore, if you have a lot of time (it may take 1–2 years), and you are one hundred percent confident in your knowledge and skills of the team when developing software, the following questions are to be noted such as:
  • user`s account with the possibility of identification, as well as deposit / withdrawal of accumulated assets;
  • gateways, connecting devices and bridges in order to connect traders and depositors to the service;
  • an aggregator which is ready to handle a large number of requests and create its own currency;
  • a trading core for generation of the order book, conducting transactions and calculating the balance.
  1. Another important issue is the development of a simple, clear and intuitive interface that will be adapted for mobile gadgets. A separate application for smartphones creates additional points to the treasury of the attractiveness of your project.
  2. There are two types of cryptocurrency wallets used on exchanges, i.e. cold and hot ones. Cold wallets are used to store the main assets of the exchange. Hot ones are needed to accept currency and withdraw funds to users.
