There isn't any official Bitcoin exchange nor any other Cryptocurrency Exchanges. But we have many choices to choose from the available exchanges in the market. Follwing are the factor we must keep in mind while getting started.

Regulation & Trust – Is the exchange trustworthy? Could the exchange run away with customer funds?

Location – If you must deposit fiat currency, and exchange that accepts payments from your country is required.

Fees - Percent of each trade is charged?

Liquidity – Large traders will need a Bitcoin exchange with high liquidity and good market depth.

Based on the factors above, the following exchanges dominate the Bitcoin exchange market:

Bitfinex - Bitfinex is the world’s #1 Bitcoin exchange in terms of USD trading volume, with about 25,000 BTC traded per day. Customers can trade with no verification if cryptocurrency is used as the deposit method.

Bitstamp - Bitstamp was founded in 2011 making it one of Bitcoin’s oldest exchanges. It’s currently the world’s second largest exchange based on USD volume, with a little under 10,000 BTC traded per day.

Trading Risks

Bitcoin trading is exciting because of Bitcoin’s price movements, global nature, and 24/7 trading. It’s important, however, to understand the many risks that come with trading Bitcoin.

Leaving Money on an Exchange

Perhaps one of the most famous events in Bitcoin’s history is the collapse of Mt. Gox. In Bitcoin’s early days, Gox was the largest Bitcoin exchange and the easiest way to buy bitcoins. Customers from all over the world were happy to wire money to Mt. Gox’s Japanese bank account just to get their hands on some bitcoins.
Many users forgot one of the most important features of Bitcoin—controlling your own money—and left more than 800,000 bitcoins in Gox accounts. In February 2014, Gox halted withdrawals and customers were unable to withdrawal their funds. The company’s CEO claimed that the majority of bitcoins were lost due to a bug in the Bitcoin software. Customers still have not received any of their funds.

Your Capital is at Risk

Remember that as with any type of trading, your capital is at risk. New traders should start trading with small amounts or trade on paper to practice. Beginners should also learn Bitcoin trading strategies and understand market signals.
