Launched in June 2019, CryptoCompare’s Exchange Benchmark was created in response to growing concerns over cryptocurrency exchanges engaging in wash trading and incentivised trading schemes to inflate volumes. The rankings bring transparency to the market and serve as a guide to traders, investors, regulators and exchange service providers who wish to understand the crypto exchange landscape and manage risks effectively.
The analysis reveals the top ten exchanges to be: Gemini (1), itBit (2), Coinbase (3), Kraken (4), Bitstamp (5), Liquid (6), OKEx (7), Poloniex (8), bitFlyer (9) and Bitfinex (10). The ranking components include geography, legal/regulatory, investment, team/company, data provision, trade surveillance, and market quality.
