What is P2P trading, and how does it work in peer-to-peer crypto exchanges?

Peer-to-peer (P2P) trading is a type of cryptocurrency exchange method that allows traders to trade directly with one another without the need for a centralized third party to facilitate the transactions.

Unlike traditional (BTC) exchanges, which typically have strict regulations and require users to go through a verification process before they can access and use the platform, P2P trading platforms tend to be much more relaxed in terms of their requirements.
