Any plans for a Cardano exchange?

Does Cardano have any plans for developing a cryptocurrency exchange? Since crypto dot com has tokens (CRO and MCO), an exchange, and secure wallet, I am wondering if Cardano will do the same. Thank you.


Great question @Emanatepresence ,

i recon once the Voltaire release takes place (smart contracts) this is one of the first things we’ll see.

personally i’ve given a bunch of thought to this actually, i think and hope that we’ll see them developed as decentralised exchanges (dEx) with atomic swaps (to drastically lower manipulation that centralised exchange order books present). they could even happen off chain which would make them achieve finality almost instantaneously!

then cherry on the top would be Ada being the reserve and base currency for liquidity and coin/token pairings respectively!
