Does this mean users do not trust exchange platforms? Or Does it simply mean that users think of it as a store value rather than a trading associate?

Are our crypto-funds safe?
2019 saw more cryptocurrency hackers than we saw ever before. The reports of 2020 are unclear. However, recently a report came up of North Korean hackers who tried to create financial damage, trying to steal cryptocurrency amid the COVID-19 crisis.
Keeping that aside, the 2020 Crypto Crime report said that $1.1 billion were stolen by hackers alone in the past two years which resulted in exchanges trying to increase the security and embed sophistication in their platform.
