Centrabits client-server architecture eliminates the most common theft method, phishing. Phishing has succeded against highly competent exchanges. It involves clickable links to a website which is a perfect copy of the website of the exchange - where all registration, verification, trading and deposit/withdrawal operations are conducted. Centrabit's website has not interaction. All operations are performed within the native app, which is only downloaded once and updated from inside the app.
Both the trading client and the exchange are built end-to-end by the founders with no outsourcing. The architecture ensures that each network component and each human operator can only access the data necessary for its task.
In addition to conventional installation, Centrabit can run in portable mode from a USB stick. It has versions for Linux, Windows and Mac.
The UI of Centrabit is highly flexible and convenient. The codebase of Centrabits UI is Qt Bitcoin Trader, an open-source trading client with many thousand users worldwide, published and updated by Centrabit AG.
