Bilaxy does not provide clear information about the headquarters as well as the company behind it. Concerns for this project include no public information about the team members and a lack of insurance in the case of a hack. However, the origin of trading platforms is not a big problem and never supporting its quality assurance. Anyway, if we have more information, we will be assured of somewhat you store assets on it, mainly when the exchange is hacked like today.
