This study examines how the type of cryptocurrency exchange (centralized vs. decentralized) influences investor perceptions of security and privacy concerns and investigates additional factors affecting investment decisions based on the privacy calculus theory. Through a mixed-methods approach, the study will employ surveys and interviews to gather data on investor perceptions. The research aims to contribute to understanding cryptocurrency investors' decision-making processes and the role of exchange type in shaping such decisions. Findings from this study have the potential to offer valuable insights for exchange operators, investors, and regulators.
