In the new world of cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology, a number of service providers have emerged to assist users in managing and trading their cryptocurrencies. An important development is the emergence of online platforms that let users buy, sell, exchange, and in some cases, store cryptocurrencies.

BBB Institute’s Digital IQ program released an article on cryptocurrency and Bitcoin trading platforms, also known colloquially as “exchanges,” which is available to the public at: https://www.bbb.org/article/news-releases/19842-cryptocurrency-trading-platforms-do-your-homework.

This article is a follow-up to an earlier piece that focuses on the technology behind storing and securing cryptocurrencies.

BBB Institute has written a number of articles to help consumers and small business owners learn more about cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology, which helps to demystify these concepts.
