Centralized systems can often be more efficient in decision-making and governance. Rapid changes or updates can be implemented with less need for consensus among a large number of participants.

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

centralized authorities have the power to censor transactions or block access to certain users. This goes against the principles of decentralization and censorship resistance that many cryptocurrencies aim to achieve

You're spot on. Centralized exchanges indeed play a crucial role as intermediaries, but this reliance introduces counterparty risk. Users entrust these platforms with transactions and asset custody, necessitating a level of trust in the security and integrity of the exchange.

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

Absolutely, your observation is on point. While centralized exchanges serve as crucial intermediaries, the reliance on these platforms introduces counterparty risk. Users place trust in these exchanges for handling transactions and safeguarding assets, emphasizing the need for a high level of confidence in the security and integrity of the exchange. It underscores the importance of selecting reputable platforms with robust security measures to mitigate potential risks associated with centralized exchanges.

My biggest reason for choosing decentralised exchanges or system over centralised system is the fact that the government doesn't have any control.
