ProfMoriarty Posted February 4, 2018 Share Posted February 4, 2018 Based on what I have read a Crypto Exchange (e.g. Bitstamp) when I place a sell order e.g. into EUR will attempt to match my order with other Bitstamp Exchange users opposite trades. Thus say sell 1000 XRP at 1 euro each - there might be 10 users wanting to sell at that level. And the buy and sell orders determine the price on that exchange. If that is the case then typically a users buy / sell is not actually involving any Ripple Ledger activity right? It is simply Exchange Users trading with each other. But if that is that case is there not a level of risk involved for the Exchange - wouldnt the Exchange itself have to hold a common bucket of XRP (maybe purchased at the start). And if for example there was a large volume of Buy or Sell trades that cant be satisfied - at what point do they try to trade with other Exchanges or with Ripple themselves?
