Edge: A Global Self-Custody Exchange

'

Through our various exchange partners, Edge users are able to exchange their local fiat currency for crypto, as well as swap from one crypto to another crypto all on their mobile device. 

 Edge users are able to make these exchanges without another entity holding their assets and instead have sole control over their assets once purchased. This reduces the risk of third party failure individuals take on when leaving assets on an exchange and it also reduces the risk posed to the ecosystem of too much money being held by too few institutions. 

Edge is a global, self custody exchange. 

Below is a breakdown of our fiat to crypto exchange partners, what regions they serve, and what payment methods are available.

Crypto to Crypto

Above, we talked about fiat-to-crypto exchange partners, and below we’ll give a shout out to our exchange partners who power our crypto-to-crypto price hunting engine. This engine pulls in the best swap price for the particular asset pair a user is trying to exchange.

For example, if a user wants to swap $100 worth of Ether for some Dogecoin, our price hunting engine will ping our eight exchange partners for price quotes on the requested exchange. The engine will pick the best price among the prices quoted and show the best price quote to the user. The user doesn’t have to manually hunt across exchanges for the best price for their particular request, it’s all done instantly by Edge.
