Launching a not-so-decentralized exchange

  • Centralized means there’s a server or a number servers controlled by the exchange on which the software runs. In that sense, Hodl Hodl, as well as Localbitcoins and all other non-p2p exchanges ARE centralized. The only exception to this is Bisq, which doesn’t have a centralized server and is truly decentralized.
  • Peer 2 Peer means trades happen between users. The exchange isn’t involved and doesn’t hold funds. Bitstamp, Kraken, etc. are NOT peer 2 peer, while Localbitcoins, Hodl Hodl and Bisq are.
