Nothing is without risk. But digital currency is very risky. At least
there is some customer service, fraud protection etc.

There is also Google Pay (wallet), but I am not a fan of Google. It also
is not nearly as widely used.

In short they handling the financial and legal paper work and
compliance. They are accountants, attorneys/lawyers, etc. Things most
tech projects and communities lack. Handing it over to another ensures
things are kept in order, legal filings done on time, properly, etc.

They do charge a fee, and are not perfect, pros and cons. Just
