Conclusion 

Cryptology seems to be a decent trading platform and there haven’t been reports of security breaches on the platform. Also they have good reviews on platforms like TrustPilot. Although not a high volume exchange like some of the reputable names in the industry including the larger crypto exchanges such as Kraken, Gemini, Coinbase, Binance, KuCoin, OKEx, PrimeXBT, or FTX, it is still a usable platform.
