Binance: a Platform for trading more than 100 cryptocurrencies

What is Binance ? 

Since early 2018, Binance is considered as the biggest cryptocurrency exchange in the world in terms of trading volume.

Binance is a Hong Kong–based cryptocurrency exchange launched by developer Changpeng Zhao (aka CZ) in July 2017. Zhao’s company Beijie Technology created the exchange after a successful ICO that raised $15 million. Investors who invested in the ICO got Binance Coin (BNB) in return which can be used to trade cryptocurrencies and pay for fee on Binance. BNB’s initial value was around $0.1.  
Binance became so popular, so quickly that CZ and Binance both became worth more than $1 billion in less than one year, officially making it one of the first companies to achieve “unicorn” status in the cryptocurrency industry.

Currencies and Payment Methods 

Binance accepts crypto deposits only. All coins supported by the exchange can be deposited and withdrawn. Having said that, Binance’s brokerage service allows you to buy the following currencies with a credit card: Bitcoin (BTC) Ripple (XRP) Binance Coin (BNB) Ethereum (ETH) Litecoin (LTC) Bitcoin Cash (BCH) All in all, the number of coins available to trade, deposit and withdraw on the exchange is nearly 100, and all major altcoins, including Litecoin, Ripple, and Bitcoin Cash, are in the listing.

How does Binance Coin work?

Binance Coin (BNB) is an ethereum-based (ERC-20) token that can be used to trade cryptocurrencies and pay for fees within the  Binance exchange. BNB tokens can be used to pay fees on the exchange, with the incentive being that Binance offers a rebate as an incentive for up to five years of membership.
