Geo Replication in Crypto Exchanges and Financial Integration
While an increasing number of investors are keen on investing in cryptocurrencies, the crypto trading space is rife with controversies. Crypto exchanges typically face a challenge when it comes to liquidity. High trading fees is often a major deterrent to traders.
Moreover, trading with fiat is a herculean task and market volatility is an unpleasant reality. A lot of times, traders end up losing their precious assets due to delayed processing either by the exchange or the payment processor.
Another major bone of contention is lack of customer support. The lack of management staff and non-responsive customer support at many exchanges further fuels negativity in the crypto trading space. Many exchanges have been prone to cyber attacks and such instances have led to losses worth billions of dollars.
Exchanges often cut corners when it comes to following the industry standards and neglect the basic rules of cyber security thus leaving room for these attacks. A general lack of awareness and education about Blockchain and cryptocurrencies has led to a low adoption rate. Consequently, the ecosystem continues to be dominated by a few influential traders who manipulate the market at their will.
KuBitX paves the way for Financial Integration
Emerging markets in Africa and Asia have a significant population still unbanked. Many countries, especially in Africa suffer from low GDP rates, high inflation and poor economic growth. The need of the hour is to establish a platform which facilitates exchanges at nominal rates. In addition, it should be suited for all sets of population. One such platform is KuBitX’s multilingual, fast and innovative trading platform. The platform is claimed to resolve the prevalent loopholes in the trading space.
The platform is collaborating with market makers to help build sustainable volume on the exchange. Additionally, the platform has incorporated an Anti Market Manipulation (AMM) tool on the platform to detect and prevent wash trading.
The KuBitX Exchange has low latency, high throughput and maximum uptime. The inclusion of geo-replication in the exchange’s architecture allows it to be fault tolerant. This in turn provides for a seamless and uninterrupted trading experience for its users. The exchange’s advanced APIs will allow users to connect with FIX, Rest, Binary, WebSocket, and third-party custom APIs. Additionally, this design will enable integration with banking and payment gateways. The fault tolerant architecture will provide 99 % uptime. The trade engine is claimed to possess a speed of 12 million tps with a latency of 40-50 ns.
The exchange has taken the following security measures for enhanced user experience:

Several exchanges fail to address basic trade issues over the phone owing to lack of manpower or well-equipped employees. Additionally, the crypto exchanges can also suspend a new account registration without timely informing their customers. As a result, they lack trust from their customers.
