Re: What are the advantages and disadvantages of centralization in Crypto

It's important to note that while Bitcoin itself is decentralized, services and exchanges that facilitate the buying, selling, and storing of Bitcoin may be subject to local regulations. Individuals interested in using or investing in Bitcoin should be aware of the legal and regulatory environment in their specific country, including the UK.

You are right mate, Most centralized exchanges require user identification and adherence to Know Your Customer (KYC) regulations. This compromises user privacy and anonymity, which is contrary to the principles of some cryptocurrency users.

Centralization can lead to restrictions on access and inclusion. Certain individuals or regions may be excluded, either due to regulatory constraints or decisions made by the central authority.
