Bitstamp is a great exchange that has been around for a very long time.
It has a proven track record for security and reliability, in fact when the exchange was hacked in 2015 and lost over 5 Million Dollars’ worth of coins, they ensured this did not impact customers and repaid the coins from their profits.
