Everything you need to know about ‘The Cryptocurrency Exchange'

A cryptocurrency is nothing but a digital currency. Cryptocurrency exchanges are the platforms where you can buy, sell or exchange cryptocurrencies with other digital currency or with other assets such as fiat money. Fiat currency is like paper money for example Rupees, Dollars whose value is decided by the government.


To start with the cryptocurrency exchange, you have to create an account in a cryptocurrency exchange. The exchange will then verify your account. When you want to buy the cryptocurrency, check the asks and when you want to sell the cryptocurrency, check the bids. The ask represents the lowest price sell order that is currently available in the market or the lowest price that someone is willing to go short. The bids represent the highest price buy order that is currently available in the market.


Peatio Cryptocurrency Exchange

Peatio is an open-source cryptocurrency exchange developed in Ruby On Rails framework. You can easily use the Peatio cryptocurrency exchange code as it is freely available to any user.


If you have an interest in the cryptocurrency exchange domain and want to make your own cryptocurrency exchange, you can achieve that easily by making use of the Peatio cryptocurrency exchange.


Peatio is divided into three application i.e Peatio, Barong and Peatio Trading UI.


It’s key features:

  • Register/Login - User can register and login to the exchange.

  • Trading market - the Trading market is the heart of Peatio exchange.

  • Bids and Asks - In a trading market, the user can bid and ask the currencies. It gives the best match for bids and asks.

  • Trade machine-engine – As it has high-performance machine-engine for trading, orders and transactions can take place automatically.

  • Trading dashboard – It shows the data in real time for charts, orders, bids, asks, and markets.

  • Markets – There is a multi-currency market.

  • Orders – When user bid or ask, the order will get created in the exchange and once the price is matched for asks and bid order, the transaction takes place in the exchange.

  • Funds – User can easily deposit/withdraw coins and fiat amount in the exchange.

  • Transaction History – It has a transaction history page which shows the history of the transaction.

  • Admin Dashboard

  • Multiple currency support - There are many currencies supported by Peatio for exchange such as BCH, BTC, DASH, ETH, USD

  • 2FA and KYC – For the user security purpose, 2FA and KYC is developed


Being an open source, you can easily do the customization of UI. You can also customize the functionality of Peatio Cryptocurrency Exchange. I have seen making use of this exchange in an application created by “Cryptex Technologies” who is a ‘Ruby On Rails’ expert.


In Peatio, they have linked three application i.e. Peatio, Barong and Peatio Trading UI together using Nginx reverse proxy setup. They have also customized the UI of Barong, Peatio and Peatio Trading UI. ‘Cryptex Technologies’ have also implemented the browser and the IP address for phishing from which the security can be improved while exchanging cryptocurrency. They have also set up servers like RabbitMQ Event API server, Redis server and MySQL database server which is required for exchanging the Bitcoin.
