Problems

Centralized exchanges offer a couple of things that cannot easily be accomplished.
First, they act as a fiat on-ramp. They can do this because they have complied with local authorities to allow them to receive fiat money and to reflect that balance for their customers.

Has three consequences:

  • Need to obtain your private data to be a customer. Under the laws are required to get KYC (Know Your Customer) info and keep AML (Anti Money Laundering) records, both of which can be intrusive and onerous for certain use cases.
  • Second, according to the laws and other laws, exchanges can easily be compelled to disclose customer information.
  • Third, the law’s responsibility to keep a customer’s Personally Identifiable Information (PII) safe.

If you consider the above three carefully, you’ll realize the following:

  • Exchanges can be compelled to freeze your account.
  • Accounts can be hacked.
  • Less reputable exchanges can run away with both your PII and your money.
  • Exchanges can resort to raiding customer funds to subsidize theft due to security breaches.
    However secure they may think they are, Centralized exchanges have an inherent design flaw: centralized fund custody.

DEXes offer a brighter future for everyone, but solutions required to allow comparable performances are often are much more complicated than necessary for a more straightforward application like a crypto exchange.
