In the same year, Gate became one of the first exchanges to launch Proof-of-Reserves, which is now under audit and publicly available. Coingeco displays reserve audits, while Coinmarketcap displays publicly available reserves.

The exchange was hacked. which is a usual case in the crypto world, but still Gate is working on security improvement with the bug bounty program.

Overall, the exchange can be classified as safe as its security methods are not much lower than competitors have. Another case proving the security is that after being hacked, the exchange has got back the half of sum and returned that to its customers. However, that exchange is not regulated, which shows the lack of regulatory due diligence, and low law security. Cybersecurity requirements are met on a high level, so if you are not taking care of the regulatory side, it’s quite safe for you to use the exchange.
