Cybex DEX Review

A crypto guide must provide reviews of all of the exchanges out there, so that you can find the right one for you. This review of Cybex DEX consists of four parts: general info, fees, deposit methods and security.

General Info

Cybex DEX is a decentralized exchange (DEX) that launched in 2017.

If you look at the trading volume of this particular platform, it is dangerously low. Although we don’t have any data from coinmarketcap.com to rely on, CoinGecko reports that the 24 hour trading volume on the date of writing this review (7 November 2019) was USD 10,926. This trading volume is so low that there is a risk that this exchange will have to shut down in the near future. So, if you’re a potential user of the platform, be careful.

As this is a DEX, it is also open to citizens or residents from the United States. Or rather, the citizenship or residency is of less importance for DEXs seeing as they never hold their users’ assets.

The team behind this trading platform consists primarily of six people: James Gong, Yuri Milyutin, Jianbo Wang, Budorin Dmytro, Ash Han and David Lee (the latter three being consultants).

General information on DEXs

DEXs are becoming increasingly more popular, mostly due to the following factors:

  • They do not require a third party to store your funds, instead, you are always directly in control of your coins and you conduct transactions directly with whoever wants to buy or sell your coins.
  • They normally do not require you to give out personal info. This makes it possible to create an account and right away be able to start trading.
  • Their servers spread out across the globe leading to a lower risk of server downtime.
  • They are essentially immune to hacker attacks.

However, DEXs normally have an order book with lower liquidity than their centralized counterparts.

Cybex DEX Trading View

Different exchanges have different trading views. And there is no “this overview is the best”-view. You should yourself determine which trading view that suits you the best. What the views normally have in common is that they all show the order book or at least part of the order book, a price chart of the chosen cryptocurrency and order history. They normally also have buy and sell-boxes. Before you choose an exchange, try to have a look at the trading view so that you can ascertain that it feels right to you. The below is a picture of the trading view at Cybex DEX:

Cybex DEX Fees

Cybex DEX Trading fees

The one thing we can’t stress enough is that you must always ascertain the trading fees at any exchange you are interested in. Every trade occurs between two parties: the maker, whose order exists on the order book prior to the trade, and the taker, who places the order that matches (or “takes”) the maker’s order. Makers make the liquidity in a market and takers remove this liquidity by matching makers’ orders with their own.

The global industry average taker fee has for a long time been 0.25% of the value of the order. Today, we see a shift towards even lower industry averages. Many new exchanges now charge 0.15% or 0.10% instead.

At Cybex DEX, takers only pay 0.05%. This fee is far below both the historic and modern industry averages. But that’s not all. Makers don’t have to pay any fees at all. On the contrary, they get paid to trade, meaning that they receive a discount on their trades. The maker “fees” here are -0.025%.

To conclude, the trading fees at Cybex DEX are extremely competitive.

Cybex DEX Withdrawal fees

Another fee to consider before choosing which exchange to trade at is the withdrawal fee. The withdrawal fee is usually fixed (regardless of the amount of cryptocurrency units withdrawn), and varies from cryptocurrency to cryptocurrency. The global industry average withdrawal fee is 0.000812 BTC when you withdraw BTC.

Here, at Cybex DEX, you don’t really make withdrawals (all trading is wallet to wallet) so there’s not really a withdrawal fee to compare with in the first place.

Deposit Methods

Cybex DEX does not – like all (or at least close to all) other DEXs – accept any deposits of fiat currency. This means that crypto investors without any previous holding of crypto assets can’t trade at this trading platform. In order to purchase your first cryptos, you need a so called entry-level exchange, which is an exchange accepting deposits of fiat currency. Find one by using our Exchange Finder!

Cybex DEX Security

The servers of DEXs normally spread out across the globe. This is different from centralized exchanges that normally have their servers more concentrated. This spread-out of servers leads to a lower risk of server downtime and also means that DEXs are virtually immune to attacks. This is because if you take out one of the servers, it makes little to no difference for the network of servers in its entirety. However, if you manage to get into a server at a centralized exchange, you can do a lot more harm.

Also, if you make a trade at a DEX, the exchange itself never touches your assets. Accordingly, even if a hacker would somehow be able to hack the exchange (in spite of the above), the hacker can not access your assets. If you make a trade at a centralized exchange, however, you normally hold assets at that exchange. That is, until you withdraw them to your private wallet. A centralized exchange can therefore be hacked and your funds held at such exchange can be stolen.

As this exchange is a DEX, we feel that it is appropriate to award it a security score of A+ (regardless of its score in the Mozilla Observatory-test).

***

Finally, as mentioned above, this is a DEX. DEXs are still a minority on the crypto exchange market, with the centralized exchanges still dominating the field (mostly due to their better liquidity). In any event, if you’re looking for a DEX, you could also check out the following quite popular ones:
