What is Fork Delta

In today's article, I will introduce you to a decentralized exchange - Decentralized Exchange (DEX). That's the Fork Delta exchange.

Fork Delta is a Decentralized Exchange (DEX) specializing in supporting ERC20 tokens based on the Ethereum blockchain.

Having been launched in 2017, when the movement of ICO developed strongly, most of the ICO tokens were listed on this exchange.

Besides, this is also a place where anyone can access directly to personal wallets; and it allows to list tokens without fees.

Security on the Fork Delta exchange

All transactions of receipt, purchase and sale of tokens at the Fork Delta exchange must be logged into the Ethereum private key (Private Key).

Because it is a peer-to-peer exchange, most security technologies for users are not yet supported and although the exchange has notified that it doesn't save Private Key information on the web.

To ensure asset security in the wallet, you can apply in the following ways:

Option 1: Use two or more Ethereum wallet accounts for token trading on the exchange.

That is, you only use the secondary wallet account when actually buying or selling on this exchange. Once done, transfer the entire coins and tokens to another wallet.

Absolutely, you should not use only one trading wallet at Fork Delta and personal storage wallets.

Option 2: Use Metamask

With the advantage of not having to enter the Private Key, you can feel secure when using it. Moreover, Fork Delta supports synchronization and compatibility for you to log in via Metamask.

Disadvantages

  • The exchange only supports standardized tokens on the blockchain platform Ethereum. In addition, it does not support any coins or tokens in other networks.
  • User security: Because it is a decentralized exchange, users use it by logging in through the wallet's private key. This requires users to have a certain understanding of how to use a personal wallet. There are problems if your wallet's private key is copied.
  • The liquidity in Fork Delta is quite weak, the trading volume is low. Part of the ICO projects has not really attracted many people to invest and trade on the exchange. Besides, the decline and plunge of the coin market plus many projects are not really good, so it is difficult to attract more investors.
