Understanding Peer-to-Peer (p2p) currency exchange 

The cost of currency exchange, among other issues, stands as a wall of Jecho hindering seamless and cost-effective currency exchange. Most times, the traditional methods such as banks and brokers charge a lot, thereby leaving the user with a meagre sum when the currency is finally exchanged. 

Recognizing this, it became important to find an alternative to these traditional methods in order to make currency exchange cheap, seamless, and secure. Hence the advent of the Peer-to-Peer (P2P) currency exchange method.

Peer-to-Peer currency exchange is a currency swap medium that allows you exchange money from one person to another through an online platform. There, individuals can find and safely exchange currency with individuals in other countries at much lower costs. 

In this article, get to know more about Peer-to-Peer currency exchange, how it works, and, why Kyshi is the toast of peer-to-peer currency exchange, among other things.

How does Peer-to-Peer(P2P) Currency exchange work?

The process of Peer-to-Peer  currency exchange is simple. Rather than exchanging money via the traditional models of banks and brokers, you can swap currency directly with those who need your currency. 

At Kyhsi, you can either set your own rates or accept a given exchange rate or bid on an exchange rate of your choosing. We then make a match, show a change in the ownership of funds, and remit through a simple domestic transfer. You can easily send money to any person or account. The account could even be yours in another country.

For better understanding, let's cite this case study.  Andrew wants to exchange one thousand pounds, (£1000), into Naira. Andrew connects with a number of people who are interested in swapping pounds for naira via a Peer to Peer currency exchange platform. He either sets his exchange rate or accepts the exchange rate on the peer to peer currency. After this, the currency exchange takes place and he is remitted with Naira and the other user gets pounds.

Asides from conducting thorough research before deciding which P2p currency exchange platform to use, here are some of the things to look out for:
