Cryptocurrency exchanges, or digital currency exchange, is a business that allows customers to trade cryptocurrencies or digital currencies for other assets, such as conventional fiat money or other digital currencies. Exchanges may accept credit card payments, wire transfers or other forms of payment in exchange for digital currencies or cryptocurrencies. 

The creators of digital currencies are often independent of the digital currency exchange that facilitate trading in the currency. In one type of system, digital currency providers keep and administer accounts for their customers but generally do not issue digital currency directly to those customers. Customers buy or sell digital currency from cryptocurrency exchanges, which transfer the digital currency into or out of the customer’s account. Some exchanges are subsidiaries of DCP, but many are legally independent businesses.
