As a non-custodial exchange platform, ChangeHero doesn’t store any user’s cryptocurrency. The outcome of a swap is sent directly to a user’s wallet.

Private and sensitive information is secure and not collected by ChangeHero. The exchange has also never been hacked.

Users don’t need an account to exchange on ChangeHero. This is beneficial to users looking to make swaps quickly and seamlessly. 

For any suspicious or flagged activity, ChangeHero can request a user to verify themselves through a know-your-customer (KYC) procedure. This is done when a user contacts the customer support team. 

The standard KYC procedure includes taking a selfie with an ID, as well as the origin of the funds, among other questions. Once this process is complete, users can continue to access the exchange. 

Users can decline the KYC procedure and receive a refund unless there are reports of the money being involved in criminal activity. This information is derived from the Crypto Defenders Alliance (CDA), which ChangeHero is a member of.

ChangeHero is extremely responsive to their clients, most notably on Trustpilot, where the exchange’s rating is 4.6 out of 5.

One of the first things you will notice on the ChangeHero landing page is the widget that takes you directly to their profile on Trustpilot. 

Here, the good far outweighs the bad. While some may argue it is easy to fake a good review, it is equally as easy to defame a company in fake, negative reviews.

ChangeHero is active in responding to the negative reviews with immediate solutions, as well as clarifying the complaint from their point of view. The exchange has also responded to all positive feedback on Trustpilot too. 

Responding to negative reviews is rarely something that organizations do so this extra step of customer support, as well as giving the reader both sides of the story, is commendable. 

What is also noteworthy is the ‘excellent’ reviews (89%) far outweigh the ‘bad’ reviews (4%). 

For newbies looking to start out, ChangeHero is a very simple-to-use platform that requires no registration. However, the exchange is able to request KYC verification at its own discretion. 

From BTC to SHIB, newbies can explore a range of cryptocurrencies that cater to a variety of investor needs. 

Buying, selling, and exchanging crypto is a simple and painless process that only takes a few simple steps to complete. 

ChangeHero takes care to ensure their reputation of trustworthiness is maintained across various platforms, specifically Trustpilot, where the exchange regularly interacts with customers.
