Notes and Methodology:

At this time, we do not recommend using any Digital Asset exchanges beyond this ranked list of 9 exchanges.

We welcome recent attempts to tackle the misconduct by unregulated Digital Asset exchanges. In this list, we have aggregated the rankings for our trusted exchanges below. Each assessment has a slightly different methodology, and so we have included direct source links for corroboration purposes.
