    Australian Crypto currency Exchanges regulated?

    "Not your private key, not your coins" Several Japanese exchanges are regulated by Japan's version of ASIC, except the one that got hacked lol In this game with multiple unregulated exchanges its still best to keep the majority of your cryptos in your own wallets

    Listed options lagging share price

    Is it poor risk management practice to use only one broker?

    IKBR is listed in the US. If it starts looking shaky then get your money out asap. For buy and hold, you can use commsec.
