Matcha is a decentralized exchange and does not store your tokens. Unlike centralized exchanges, such as Binance and Coinbase, that require you to deposit tokens with a third party to make a trade, all trades on Matcha are peer-to-peer. You trade directly from your Ethereum wallet and retain complete custody of your tokens throughout the entire process.
Although we believe Matcha to be very secure, the Ethereum blockchain and smart contracts are a relatively new technology, and there is always some risk of a security flaw. By using Matcha and agreeing to our Terms of Service, you represent that you understand and accept that risk.
