HOW TO START A CRYPTO EXCHANGE?
The recent IPO of a popular crypto exchange, "Coinbase," has evidently laden cryptocurrency's significance, importance, and global demand. Its Initial Public Offering (IPO) valuation was $66 billion, and this valuation superseded those of one of the biggest banks in the world, JPMorgan.
1.) Choose the type of exchange and additional modules you want to launch.
Centralized exchange- Most trustworthy exchange system as there is a third party involved to handle the transactions. Exchange charges are charged to perform this duty. It is highly liquid.
Decentralized exchange- It lacks liquidity.
P2P exchange- It connects buyers and sellers with no third-party involvement.
Apart from the above 3, to attract more people, you can add the following modules:
a) Margin trading exchange- Traders are attracted to exchange which provide leverage. i.e., more significant earning opportunities for both traders and owners of the exchange.
b) Derivatives exchange
c) NFT exchange and Wallets
After identifying the type of exchange, you want to create and the additional modules you wish to offer, you need to decide to start from scratch or continue with white label crypto exchange software, which decreases time to market.

Apart from transaction rate, other things you need to look out for are: hidden fees some processors have, settlement time, and cyber security compliance.
