The 13 Stages Of Cryptocurrency Exchange Development Process

If you are looking to start a cryptocurrency exchange business, then you should understand the lifecycle of cryptocurrency exchange development and its phases. So that you can easily coordinate with the cryptocurrency exchange developers or the company you are dealing with.  

First of all, starting a cryptocurrency exchange is not just like the usual web development process, it would require some additional efforts and technical knowledge both from the entrepreneur and the developer side. So, I hope this article will be a tutorial to explore the cryptocurrency exchange development lifecycle by listing out the 13 phases of cryptocurrency exchange development.

But, before that you should understand there are three ways you can choose to build a cryptocurrency exchange, but it is upon you to choose the one which is more comfortable to you.


If you are an expert in web development, you can allocate some time to analyze the development process, and study the concept. then you can start developing the source code on your own.  If you don’t want to do it yourself, then you can go for the other two options below. 

Result : It Takes Much Time, and it is not recommendable for an entrepreneur who is looking to launch his website in a short time. This is like getting gold through the mining process, so there will be the possibility of both loss and success.

Option B : Hire a Freelancer

You can hire an expert developer or a freelancer who can do it for you, But you should pay him as per his/her demands. 

Result : The Quality of Output is Not Guaranteed.

Option C: Outreach a Cryptocurrency Exchange Development Company

You can outreach a cryptocurrency exchange development company, and ask them for a free quote about their development process with cost. If you find they can meet your requirements, then can make a deal with them.

Result : Here the output is guaranteed, because here you will be allowed to monitor or question on each development stage.

What Would You Choose ?

I would suggest go with Option C , (i.e) Contact a Cryptocurrency Exchange Development Company.

If you are new to the cryptocurrency industry, and you find there is a big potential for your cryptocurrency business idea, then you should choose Option C. Because making a deal with a cryptocurrency exchange development company would reduce your time and effort also it will be easy for you  to manage. So I would suggest choosing Option C.

After reaching your desired company, escalate your business requirements, and make a friendly contact with their team & representatives to discuss in detail about your project. 

Stage 7: Scope Discussion & Finalizing the project

Discuss the scope, technical resources, and confirm the project. 


So, until the 7th stage you are not going to make any investment, and when you confirmed the project the other following process will be fully handed over to the cryptocurrency exchange development company you have reached. 

Stage 8: Business Plan Presentation & Project Team Allocation

In this stage the company would bring you a business plan as a road map presentation & let you know the resource allocations.

Stage 12 : Testing Stage

After the completion of the entire website it will be loaded into the local server, to check whether all the functionalities are working properly. If there is any bug occurring, the phase 10 and 11 will be proceed again until solving the bugs.  

Stage 13 : Deployment Phase & additional Changes

After testing the developed cryptocurrency exchange website and its functionalities it will be hosted with the support of DevOps Team. Continuous monitoring will be done until there are no additional changes needed from the design and development side.
