Binance facts, technical details and Binance information
Binance is one of the most popular cryptocurrency exchange platforms today. With its high trading volume and an extensive list of currencies, it offers access to Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Litecoin, but also to promising altcoins. It also has its own native cryptocurrency, Binance Coin (BNB). The coin became one of the top performers in the first part of 2019, and it offers numerous use cases already, including a major discount on transaction fees within Binance's ecosystem.
At this point, it would be surprising to meet anyone in the crypto space who doesn't know about Binance. Binance is one of the world's largest cryptocurrency exchanges by trading volume, and among the most trusted ones. It was launched back in 2017, and while it was originally founded in China — the exchange quickly realized that the regulatory situation of the country is not moving in a positive direction. As a result, Binance shifted to Malta, which is becoming one of the leading regions when it comes to crypto and blockchain-friendly laws.
Binance rose through the ranks at an impressive speed, becoming one of the largest exchanges in the world within a year. It even became THE largest one, although it currently doesn't hold that position anymore. Still, it is among the top choices for millions of investors and traders, and for quite a few reasons, at that.
Binance was busy in its short lifetime, and especially in 2019. It was working on developing its ecosystem ever since it originally emerged, and it did become an ecosystem, going beyond being a simple exchange. In 2019, it launched 3 crypto-to-fiat subsidiaries on 3 different continents — Binance.Jersey in Europe, Binance.Singapore in Asia, and Binance.US in North America. It plans to have at least two exchanges on each continent, thus allowing people to trade on an exchange compliant with their local regulations.
It also launched its own blockchain — Binance Chain — as well as its own decentralized version — Binance DEX. While many are still doubting the true decentralization of the DEX, the fact is that Binance is definitely respecting modern crypto trends, and providing its users with the products they need most.
It also has its own native cryptocurrency, Binance Coin (BNB). The coin became one of the top performers in the first part of 2019, and it offers numerous use cases already, including a major discount on transaction fees within Binance's ecosystem. BNB powers the Binance Ecosystem. As the native coin of Binance Chain, BNB has multiple use cases: fueling transactions on the Chain, paying for transaction fees on Binance Exchange, making in-store payments, and many more.
Binance Completes 13th Quarterly BNB Burn. In accordance with the Binance whitepaper, we have completed our 13th quarterly BNB token burn of 2,253,888 BNB (roughly $68,000,000 USD equivalent).
The exchange itself is intuitive and easy to use. It features a user-friendly interface, and you can choose two different 'modes' or trading screens. One is called Basic, while the other is Advanced. As the name suggests, the Basic trading screen is designed for basic trading. It is expected to be used by newcomers who are still learning how to use cryptocurrencies. Its main difference, when compared to the Advanced trading screen, is the fact that it doesn't have as many analysis-related tools, so that it would not intimidate or confuse new traders. Still, it is equipped with everything you might need in order to trade within the exchange.
It should be noted that Binance also suffered a hacking attack earlier this year. While the attack was nowhere near the biggest in the crypto industry, it did come as a shock that even one of the largest and most popular exchanges could experience something like that. Binance brushed it off with ease, however, as only one of its hot wallets got hit. The total loss was estimated to be around $40 million, which the exchange covered easily from its emergency fund.
With consistently high trading volumes, Binance Exchange’s technology can process up to 1.4 million transactions per second. They feature an extensive list of alt-coins with over 100 different cryptocurrencies from well-known coins, like Ethereum (ETH), to smaller coins such as CyberMiles (CMT) and ZCoin (XZC). They are also known for listing new and promising cryptocurrencies as soon as their ICOs have closed.
Their native coin, BNB, can be used to pay trading fees at a discount on the platform. Each trade on the Binance Exchange incurs a standard fee of 0.1% but traders can pay these fees at a 12.5% discount using BNB. The BNB deduction for trading fees follows a predetermined schedule by which the discount reduces to 6.75% in July 2020 for one year before BNB trading fee discounts will be discontinued.
In conclusion, we can determine that Binance is among the top exchanges for a reason. It did have its issues, and many would say that it still has quite a few, but its progress is undeniable, especially this year. Binance may return to the position of the largest exchange in the world, or it might not — whatever ends up being the case, it is certainly an exchange worth considering if you are looking for a good place to trade.
