eToroX has good liquidity. This is largely due to the company working with market makers connected to some of the top 15 exchanges, in which aggregated liquidity is placed directly on the platform.
- Established Track Record & Market Expertise: eToro is a global multi-asset investment platform with over 10 million registered users. They possess considerable experience in the traditional finance industry, given that eToro was formed in 2006.
- Regulated Exchange: Being only one of the few regulated entities under the Gibraltar regulatory authority (GRA) with a distributed ledger technology (DLT) licence from the Gibraltar Financial Services Commission (GFSC) is a major sign of credibility for users. Regulation entails governance and accountability, which is lacking in the cryptocurrency space. As a regulated entity, eToroX is required to invest a significant amount of resources and effort to ensure the right technical and control measures are in place for the protection of all stakeholders, especially users. Being granted the green light by regulators is a major sign of credibility and trust.
- Low Liquidity: The average liquidity of eToroX exchange is thin and is unable to support the market depth of most other cryptocurrency exchange. This is natural given the infancy of the exchange.
