Should You Hire Developers Or Make Your Own Crypto Exchange App?

Building your crypto exchange app can be tricky because of the complex coding, security features, time-stipulated trading & the traditional approach to building a crypto trading application. Along with the technical complexities, you will also come across various crypto compliances & regulations. 

While building a crypto exchange, make sure you are well-versed with its different architectures, programming languages (eg: Solidity, Java, Python, Javascript, etc), crypto exchange scripts, its various types and many other things. Then you also need to make sure that all the features and components of a crypto exchange are in the right place before you push it on the web.

At Systango, we provide customised crypto exchange development services. These services include building a trading app with a high-risk control framework, smart contracts for P2P trading, AMM for high liquidity, EVM compatibility, and an exchange platform administration panel.

Key Considerations To Make Crypto Exchange App

Following are the factors to consider before you hire developers to make a crypto exchange app:

Key Considerations To Make Crypto Exchange App

Operational Scope

Make sure that you ponder upon the operational scope of your crypto exchange app in the discovery phase itself. Consider the factors like licensing & registering your exchange app with suitable local/global regulatory authorities. 

Compliance & Regulations

Make sure that your crypto exchange app adheres to the KYC norms. This is a crucial factor as it eliminates the scope of money laundering through your crypto exchange app.

Payment Processing Partner

Get yourself a trusted payment processing partner like a bank & a payment gateway API, who would help you with the fiat to crypto conversions & will increase the fund’s accessibility for the crypto traders. 

Liquidity Management

Liquidity is an essential part of the cryptocurrency exchange platform. Integrate your crypto exchange’s liquidity position to existing exchanges to manage your platform liquidity.

Robust Security Standards

Cryptocurrency makes investing more accessible and more secure, with numerous exchanges available. Conduct research, read reviews, and consult experienced investors for informed decisions.

Customer Support Channel

Customer support is essential for any software or product, including cryptocurrency exchanges, to promptly respond to customer inquiries. Implementing an interactive customer support channel is critical to providing your customers with optimal support.

Higher Cryptocurrencies

The more cryptocurrencies a platform supports, the more extensive the investment required for developing dedicated APIs to retrieve historical data & real-time charts and execute trade orders.
