Review of TokenPocket Instant Swap Feature and why you should use it


11Instant TokenSwap

Cryptocurrency, a medium to transfer funds within seconds to other individuals worldwide with near-zero additional charges. One of its many features is its decentralized nature, not been own by any entity or governmental organization made it grew rapidly as compared to other mediums of exchanges the world had experienced.

Bitcoin the most popular cryptocurrency known today was the first but definitely not the last, over the years, other types of cryptocurrencies have been developed, some offering the same feature as bitcoin and others taking the usage a notch above.

With the never-ending development of different types of cryptocurrencies, a medium of exchanging these cryptocurrencies was needed, if you recall trade by barter, individuals had to move a long mile to get other individuals who needed what they have and willing to trade for something they needed, this probably would have been the case if exchanges were not available.

Exchanges are platforms which allow individuals to create price for a particular cryptocurrency with the goal of other users finding them okay at that point in time, they are further divided into decentralized and centralized, with the centralized having majority of control of what happens within their organization, meaning users have to agree with their terms and services before they are granted access to these exchanges. While decentralized is an open market for all to trade.

Centralized exchanges put the well-being of their customers first but there is this cryptocurrency phrase

Your key, your funds and not your key, not your funds

Centralized exchanges can stop you from using their services or temporarily pause all their services if they discover activities that go against their terms of usage, if you had any fund on them at that moment, your access to these funds will be limited as well.

One might consider decentralized exchange the next big alternative to this but then the issue of usage comes into play. Most decentralize exchanges are difficult to access and when it comes to trading, it becomes almost impossible for a complete newbie to use which is kind of a back-set when you are preaching or explaining cryptocurrency to your peers.

Cryptocurrency, as many take it today is center on finance and the need to move from one cryptocurrency to another within seconds is definitely a game-changer and that is where TokenPocket swap feature comes into play.

A platform where users are able to swap within cryptocurrencies is definitely a dream come through and the best part, users can easily save these swapped cryptocurrencies via the multiple wallet feature available on TokenPocket.
