NB: Unlike other P2P platforms, Local Cryptos is a non-custodial P2P wallet – this means that when you make a transfer in your Local Cryptos web wallet, your browser uses your private key to generate and sign a transaction on your device using client-side cryptography. At no point in time do their servers see your private key. Your keys – your coins.
