While blockchain technology is being embraced by corporations around the world (seeForbes Blockchain 50) there has likewise been a boom in outfits that allow investors to buy, sell and store cryptocurrencies. Despite the sector being little more than a decade old, CoinGecko.com reports that there are no fewer than 580 independent crypto exchanges allowing investors to trade virtual currencies. In fact, in the last quarter of 2021, websites of dedicated crypto exchanges received 1.7 billion visits according to SimilarWeb data collected by Forbes.
