The Only Exchange That Distributes All Of Its Profits Back To Its Token-Holders
LCS’s major focus is on the community that it hopes to create. There will be a professional support team in place to assist community members with anything they don’t understand. But the interface is very simple and has elements of social media in place to further the emphasis on community bond.

The sign-up process is simple, and the verification process is easy and straightforward. Traders can then search through the array of different Cryptocurrencies for the one that they’d like to buy. The next step is choosing a payment method and then entering into a trade. The payment is made between the two parties, and LCS holds the Cryptocurrency in escrow until the funds on both sides have cleared.
To ensure that payments are totally secure, LCS uses multiple signatures for each transaction, of which they make use of Blockchain technology and smart contracts. A massive 95% of funds are stored in cold storage, making it very difficult for cybercriminals to hack.

Some Of The Problems That LocalCoinSwap Hopes To Solve
Despite the major rise in Cryptocurrencies, ICOs and exchange platforms, there are still many issues facing the Cryptocurrency community. One such issue is the fact that the industry is overrun by massive monopolies. LCS hopes to be one of the exchanges to assist in evening out the playing field so to say. LCS also shows no discrimination and welcomes all traders, both big and small, to join their inclusive community.
The other problem with many exchanges is that they are very specific and do not have many coins on the platform. This leads many traders to have to use more than one platform. But LCS aims to be traders’ one-stop shop, their go-to for all their crypto exchanges and an exchange where even new coins will be listed with haste as soon as they’ve been background checked.
Another issue with all the current most-popular exchanges is that they have become less decentralized and now actually controlled by establishments and governments. LCS hopes to be just the opposite in where they give complete control over to the LCS community by letting them vote for or against certain policies and even feeding 100% of the profits back into the community.
Many crypto exchanges have also been hacked, leading them to be believed to be unsafe, as well as complicated with complex interfaces. LCS aims to be just the opposite of that, with providing a secure platform that is safe for users and has defenses up against cyber-criminals. On top of that, LCS hopes to be accessible and easy-to-use for any trader. The social media type structure to the exchange site hopes to engage traders and have them being able to navigate through the site easily.
