Resistance is an anonymous decentralized exchange, ResDEX, driven and supported by the Resistance privacy-oriented blockchain, which uses the RES privacy coin as an intermediary to facilitate private trading. These components work in unison to give even novice users a chance to trade and mine with ease and anonymity.
Problems & Solutions
The biggest issue with centralized exchanges is security. Most of the major exchanges, including Binance, OKEx, and Huobi, operate using a centralized model where a trusted middleman handles assets on behalf of senders and recipients. With centralized data, it only takes a single security breach, or malicious insider, for users to lose everything. And it’s happened on numerous occasions. Essentially, centralized exchanges forfeit privacy and security for convenience.
Cryptocurrencies are thriving, yet when it comes to cryptocurrency trading platforms, users currently face many hurdles, including complicated interfaces, slow transaction speeds, and a lack of privacy, security, and freedom.
Most cryptocurrency trading takes place in centralized exchanges that rely on trusted third parties, escrow services, or derivatives, making it almost impossible to trade privately and securely.
Due to the centralized nature of centralized platforms, it only takes one security breach to expose and jeopardize the assets of every user on an exchange.
Decentralized exchanges (DEX) have begun to challenge the dominance of centralized exchanges in the digital currency trading space. But first-generation DEXs are slow, indirect, only moderately secure, and offer inadequate support for users concerned about privacy.
Furthermore, the coins traded in these DEXs are subject to massive cryptocurrency mining operations utilizing expensive, specialized hardware. This makes it extremely difficult for the average person to compete for block rewards and transaction fees.
With Resistance, a decentralized, democratic platform driven by the belief that blockchain technology should empower users with the freedom to mine, trade, and innovate, regardless of their access to resources or technical expertise.
