I've seen plenty of people looking into setting up coin exchanges. I'm also interested in the development of cyptocurrencies and think it might be a good idea to get involved in the business environment as well.
I'm wondering, however, if starting one is a worthwhile investment, considering one must balance server costs, development, etc. I'm an intermediate software developer yet understand creating an exchange is beyond my limits, so I would certainly need a team to help me realize this goal.
If the only profits of the coin exchange are a small fee for every transaction, I can't imagine an exchange would be highly profitable and certainly wouldn't be able to pay off development/server fees?
