Binance Coin (BNB): Why It’s So Interesting to the Cryptocurrency World

Cryptocurrency is red hot, but if you’re looking to get in on the action, you can’t buy it on the stock market through a standard brokerage account like you would with an index fund or a share of Amazon.

Cryptocurrency like Bitcoin is traded on special exchanges like Etoro, CoinBase and BlockFi.

The biggest exchange in the world by far is called Binance.

It’s so big, in fact, that a “native” cryptocurrency called Binance Coin was developed just to make it easier to pay for the site’s services.

You Pay Fees To Trade Cryptocurrency

If you’re not familiar with crypto exchanges, the following numbers might not mean much to you, but the 1.4 million transactions that are executed on Binance every second and the site’s 2 billion in average daily volume are truly astounding statistics. Exchanges take fees for executing crypto transactions, and part of the reason Binance is so popular is that its transaction fees are among the lowest in the world. Users pay just 0.1% to execute each of those billions of trades.

Binance Coin Makes Cheap Trading Cheaper

Binance reduces those already-low trading fees by a full 50% if you pay for them using the exchange’s native cryptocurrency, Binance Coin (BNB). That means that instead of paying 10 cents on a $100 transaction, you’d pay only 5 cents if you complete the transaction using BNB.

An Ethereum-based (ERC-20) token, BNB hit the market on July 21, 2017, when Binance made its initial coin offering (ICO) of 100 million BNB tokens.

It eventually moved to its own unique blockchain called Binance Chain and limited the BNB supply to 200 million tokens in total.
