No, Mesh is different from other crypto exchanges. We take a unique approach that sets us apart in the industry.  


Unlike traditional exchanges, we don't hold anyone's assets. However, Mesh does hold users’ private keys and therefore, acts as a vault for your assets. Your funds remain securely in your own account throughout the trading process. We believe in prioritizing the security and ownership of your assets, giving you full control. 

In addition, we don't maintain order books or private pools. We've developed a user-friendly interface (UI) that seamlessly connects you to the open marketplace on the Stellar network. It's all about transparency and independence. When you trade on Mesh, you're directly engaging with the decentralized Stellar network, ensuring a level playing field for all participants.


Our goal is to provide a secure platform where you can easily access and engage with the open marketplace. You have full control over your assets, and we're here to support you every step of the way. By embracing this approach, we create an environment where you can trade with confidence, knowing that your assets are in your control and that you're part of a fair and open ecosystem.
