Currently they are not better, they are still laggy and WIP (work in progress). But they will be in the future. Decentralized exchanges can be used for trading if you want to avoid authority reports.

I found another decentralized exchange: https://idex.market

Trying it out right now!

Guys, this IDEX exchange not worth your time. It's laggy as hell. I spent nearly 2 hours and couldn't place an order. I don't recommend!

is better to trade on decentralized exchange?


They are good because you don't have to thrust third party, therefore they can't get hack and loose your money but they are not so efficient. You will always have a problem with speeds in comparison to centralized exchanges.
