P2P Trading

P2P Trading

What is Peer-to-Peer Trading?

P2P trading is the act of buying and selling cryptocurrencies directly between users, without any third party or intermediary. When you buy or sell cryptocurrencies using a traditional exchange, you don't get to transact directly with the counterparty. Instead, you use charts and other market aggregators to determine the optimal time to buy, sell, or hold cryptocurrencies. The exchange organizes the transaction on your behalf, and the market price determines your final price at the time of the transaction.
P2P trading gives you more control over who buys your cryptocurrencies and who you buy from, the pricing, and settlement time. While P2P trading gives users finer control over the process, it is vital to note that peer-to-peer transactions carry some risks when there is no third party to broker the deal. This is where an exchange like LYOTRADE P2P becomes essential for risk-conscious users.
There are many ways to trade cryptocurrencies. The most common practice is to use centralized exchanges like and buy or sell crypto at certain price points against another cryptocurrency or a local currency supported on the platform. Alternatively, you can transact with your fellow crypto holders and swap your assets without needing to track charts and orders.

3. Escrow Service
As stated above, LYOTRADE has an escrow service to protect buyers and sellers. LYOTRADE P2P has a holding mechanism for crypto funds that are involved in any pending transaction. This mechanism prevents incidents of theft or scam by adding another layer of trust, thus preventing malicious actors from stealing your money or crypto without completing their part of the trade.

Disadvantages of P2P Exchanges

1. Slower Trading Speeds
While P2P transactions can be conducted near-instantly once both parties have confirmed the transaction, one party might delay the transaction for various reasons. With traditional trading, you don't need to wait for the buyer or seller to confirm before you can move on from the transaction. With P2P, the buyer or seller can change their minds halfway through the transaction and decide to end it.
2. Low Liquidity
P2P exchanges are still relatively new and have lower liquidity than centralized exchanges. For this reason, larger traders who need to complete major transactions may prefer to use OTC (over-the-counter) trades or buy/sell using the standard exchange.
