Poloniex declares that it holds users' funds in offline, air-gap cold storage, keeping small amounts of funds in hot storage for active trading. The platform offers 2FA and is regulated by the United States Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCen). Poloniex stopped the service for users in Washington state in April 2017, due to financial regulations by the US Government.

Poloniex Inc. is registered with the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) as a money service business (MSB) in Delaware, USA. Although it is one of the most popular exchanges in the US, besides Kraken, there is little to no information about Poloniex's CEO and Founder, Tristan D'Agosta, nor about his whereabouts or previous experience.


Poloniex was compromised back in 2014 using a relatively simple attack vector of"simultaneous withdrawals", but customers were paid back in full, (and the loss was only about $50,000). Since Poloniex is the most widely-used cryptocurrency exchange in the world, any hack causing massive funds losses would be catastrophic for the cryptocurrency market worldwide.

Poloniex users have the option of placing stop-limit orders, which are helpful for protecting profits or minimizing losses. Also, the platform offers margin trading. When users place a margin order, all of the money they used are borrowed from other users offering their funds as peer-to-peer loans. Poloniex offers only crypto-to-crypto trades, with a generous 100+ trade pairs available.
