How to open a digital currency exchange, how much does it cost?

In the field of digital currency, mining, wallets and exchanges are the most mature ones. For the “players” who want to enter the block chain industry, which one should be chosen as the entry point to the industry?

Opening a self-owned mine requires a lot of manpower and capital costs. With the increasing difficulty of Bitcoin mining and the increase of uncertainties such as Bitcoin bifurcation, mining is increasingly difficult to ensure profitability. At present, there is no clear profit model for digital currency wallet. Compared with mining and trading exchanges, the profitability is weak. Exchange is one of the important channels for the circulation of digital currency transactions, which is at the top of the digital currency industry chain and has a great voice in the industry. Exchanges have a variety of ways of making profits, such as transaction fees, coin release fees, platform coins, etc.

Therefore, the exchange is undoubtedly a very good choice for “players” who want to enter the block chain industry.

So how can we easily own a proprietary digital currency exchange? According to the information available at present, there are three ways to create their own proprietary digital currency exchanges:

1. Teaming up for development

If you want to set up your own team to develop the exchange system, without considering the development cycle and capital cost of the system, it will take a lot of time and energy to set up relevant team members such as products, development, design and so on. In addition, according to statistics from foreign third-party channels, the overall cost of developing a complete exchange ranges from $300,000 to $400,000. Of course, the cost of developing a digital currency exchange system varies from country to country. It can be seen that the labor cost and the investment of the company’s software and hardware in the whole process of the exchange from the early product design, the mid-term development to the later iteration are enormous.

2. Purchase from a third-party service provider

Compared with the teaming up for development, buying an exchange system can save you a lot of time and energy, but the cost is not low. After investigating a number of digital currency exchange service providers, we find that most of the service providers’ systems are sold at a price over $50,000 (except open source code). At the same time, after purchasing the exchange system, there are still a series of problems to be considered, such as:

• Safety is difficult to guarantee.

• Code needs special maintenance

• Follow-up addition of new features are difficult (addition with new demands from service providers requires secondary development fees)

3. Join the exchange alliance

Each exchange alliance has at least one exchange with a certain user base and trading liquidity. For the exchanges that have already operated on the market, by providing technology and services, creating a consensus ecosystem is conducive to further expanding profits and enhancing the influence of their brands in the industry.

Therefore, for the “players” who want to enter the digital currency industry, choosing to join the exchange alliance can not only quickly have a sound exchange, but also obtain strong brand endorsement and technical support, which can be a very ideal choice.

Next, we will compare and analyze the existing exchange alliances in the market from several different dimensions to see what strengths and weaknesses they have.

I. Strengths and weaknesses of the representatives of the 6 major exchange alliances

At present, there are many exchange alliances to choose from. We have selected the following 6 representative exchange alliances and listed their conditions and services for your reference.


After comparison of the 6 major exchange alliances, they can be roughly divided into the following 3 types:

A. Huob, Binance, OKEx, IDCM:

Although they provide basic technology and services, Huob, Binance, OKEx and IDCM have set higher threshold and daily service fee, and the depth and liquidity of alliance branches are not shared.

B. EXX exchange alliance

Although EXX has almost zero threshold, it provides very few services at a very high daily service cost. After deducting the corresponding costs, the final actual income ratio is less than 15%, even less than the invitation commission of some exchanges. EXX Exchange Alliance can be said to be a disguised invitation commission as it can’t well balance the interests of both sides to achieve mutual benefit and win-win. Users do not really own their exchanges.

C. Hubi exchange alliance:

Hubi Exchange Alliance is the founder of Exchange Alliance 3.0. Its access threshold is very low. Everyone is a super node. The alliance has a common OTC system, sharing transaction depth and liquidity, and the ecological dividend of the alliance.

In summary, we can conclude that the Hubi Exchange Alliance has very low access threshold, the most complete service content and almost zero daily maintenance costs. Therefore, joining the Hubi Exchange Alliance is a wise choice.

HUB does not support PO, ICO, airdrop, gift, and free release. Its total issuance is a constant of 5 billion, and it guarantees no additional issuance.

HBGA super node enjoys alliance rights and ecological dividends, and carries corresponding rights and dividends through HUB.

● HBGA joint voting for coin release

HBGA has introduced a voting consensus mechanism. HBGA super-nodes have a high degree of consensus. With HUB as the voucher of rights, the Alliance votes for coin issuance. Users who vote in the alliance can get the dividend of the transaction fee paid by the Project Party in coin, so as to realize voting as mining.

HUB holders have the right to vote on coin issuance by HGBA

● HBGA node as mining dividend

With a high degree of consensus and shared ecological dividend of the alliance, HBGA can get the corresponding ecological dividend of the alliance according to the total amount of circulating HUB held in the nodes, so as to realize the mining of the nodes.

HBGA super node enjoys mining dividend. The mining dividends are as follows:

Mining dividend of the super node = (total transaction fee of the alliance * 20%) * 50% * (total HUB holdings of the super node / all negotiable HUB).

HUB holders are entitled to HGBA “node as mining” dividends

8. Sharing the depth and liquidity of alliance transactions

HBGA is the world’s first super-node exchange alliance. All the super-nodes can share the depth and liquidity of the alliance transaction, including Hubi, and form a huge transaction service ecosystem with global circulation.


Hubi Global Alliance provides a common OTC system. The Alliance Super Node can provide efficient and fast entry and exit service for users without expending a lot of energy to recruit OTC service providers.

At the same time, Hubi Global Alliance share transaction depth and liquidity amongst super nodes. User orders of each Alliance Branch are first matched within the exchange. If orders cannot be completed in time, they will be further matched among the super nodes of the whole alliance. Compared with other exchange alliances, this greatly improves the transaction rate of orders from Alliance users.

“Convenience of entry and exit” and “transaction rate of user orders” are two indicators to measure the user experience of exchanges, and directly affect the volume of exchanges.

Through “Public OTC System” and “Shared Transaction Depth and Liquidity between Super Nodes”, Hubi Global Alliance provides fast entry and exit service for Alliance users, and improves the transaction rate of user orders, thus greatly enhancing the competitiveness of HBGA Super Nodes.
