Question for those educated about Bitcoin.

There is an app for phones that connect to a financial database at CNBC.
It has a cryptocurrency section that shows the current dollar exchange rate for crypto’s. Some of you are prolly familiar with it.

On the crypto page are listed three or four Bitcoin entries.
The current exchange rate is sometimes close in values, but never identical, and sometimes quite a bit different.
I assume that the entries are for different Bitcoin ‘exchanges’.

Am I correct in that assumption and why is the dollar exchange rate different across the various exchanges?

Thanks in advance.

The truth does not require your belief.
