I also think you can double check their addresses and get the numbers directly from the ledgers. It will be harder to aggregate and to get all their wallets though.

Also MariaDB is the new mySQL 😀

I would expect all trading to be done off-chain and to not show up in the ledgers until the user specifically initiates a withdrawal or deposit.

Yep, trading transactions will not be found on public ledgers.

Directly checking with the public ledger cannot be option for this thing. Lets say a user is using the exchange's wallet service only to store data and not to trade then it will be problem.

Never heard of MariaDB before. Looks nice! Thanks for sharing !
