This follows comments by Vitalik Buterin who told an audience at a TechCrunch session that he hopes’centralized exchanges go burn in hell.’Goodbody informed NewsBTC:” That’s quite a visceral statement. There
‘s a case for both centralized and decentralized exchanges and they have their own benefits and drawbacks. To say that everything must be decentralized is quite a broad statement. We’re constantly on the edge of our seats to see exactly what he states next and his soundbites are always rather great.” He added that Huobi is intending to end up being fully decentralized on a propriety protocol.

started a competition to discover an international leader to build it with the neighborhood.

exchanges, including Bithumb, and probably’ partly’decentralized exchange Bancor, he said this issue is a’really sensitive topic.’He likewise pointed out that Huobi hasn’t had a security breach in 5 years of operation.Goodbody informed NewsBTC:”Have exchanges failed?

are using.

As long as it’s launched by a credible market individual, we think it’s a positive development for the industry.”He also commented on Binance setting up their SAFU fund after reports declared that it had been hacked for$45 million despite the fact that these were unfounded. Goodbody stated that Huobi has been putting a percentage of their trading earnings aside into a fund given that its inception.The UK CCO said:”Huobi’s been doing that for 5 years. We have a Huobi default fund which is funded by a percentage of our trading earnings.
