10 for 10: How the Binance Ecosystem Drives BNB to Top 10

Binance Coin (BNB) recently reached top 10 on the cryptocurrency list, according to CoinMarketCap as of February 7, 2019. At Binance, we are honored to receive your continued trust and support, and we dedicate this achievement to all our Binancians for believing in our shared growth path.

Since Binance launched less than two years ago, we have continued to improve on our core service to the community, launching diverse divisions that carry out our shared mission to provide more freedom of money. We believe that the avenues of growth that each division brings have contributed to where we are now.

Of course, it also helps that Binance Coin just keeps on growing its list of use cases that go beyond trading. We hope you can explore these different use cases of Binance Coin, as we continue to optimize the benefits and uses of your BNB.

Here are different ways that each Binance division contributes to BNB’s Top 10 status:


1. Cryptocurrency Exchange

We owe the head-start to our main exchange offering. We’ve strived to provide the best possible crypto exchange service available on the market to help encourage trading and investing, come bull or bear, so that millions of Binancians and the community.

Over the past few months, we developed plans to help launch additional ways for people to benefit from crypto and learn more about the blockchain. We believe that crypto adoption will hasten when people are given more fiat options. With current and upcoming fiat exchanges such as Binance Uganda, Binance Jersey and Binance Singapore, we are reaching out to the world and widening our user base.


3. Institutional Services

Spreading freedom of money takes a wide-reaching approach, including avenues from both retail traders and bigger institutions. We also rolled out multiple innovations, such as sub-account features and over-the-counter (OTC) trading desks that allow corporate accounts to trade faster and more conveniently to further fuel growth in the global blockchain ecosystem.


4. Binance Launchpad

Binance is also rooting for the growth of the blockchain industry through several avenues, including our token sale platform Binance Launchpad. We hope to drive industry growth by providing exclusive opportunities for our users and blockchain constituents to take part in compelling and vetted blockchain projects while driving more token activity and overall confidence to the market.

One unique action it does is to introduce more people to blockchain and its uses -- a long-term play for a wider blockchain user base.

We also aim to fuel user growth in blockchain by making it easy for more people to learn about it, in as many languages as possible. At Binance Academy, we roll out various multi-language lessons and content pieces that help people know more about blockchain and, in turn, participate in growing the ecosystem, whether through trading in Binance or developing new technologies we can all support.

10. Trust Wallet

One way to spread freedom of money is to empower individuals to use and store them securely through the Trust Wallet app. Fresh from a rebranding that heralded its evolution from an Ethereum wallet into a multi-coin wallet, Trust Wallet’s easy-to-use interface opens up opportunities for people to get more out of their crypto.

BONUS ITEM: Binance Chain and Binance DEX

We are always creating more ways to generate value for our Binancians. With the upcoming Binance Chain, we continue to BUIDL and develop the next frontiers for blockchain.

Binance CEO Changpeng “CZ” Zhao recently announced that the Binance Chain testnet has been released to our partners. The testnet, available semi-publicly, includes features support from our own Trust Wallet as well as Ledger, among many others. This is a major step towards the eventual launch of Binance Chain, including the upcoming Binance DEX.

All of Binance’s divisions emerged from our relentless quest to provide more value to stakeholders of the Binance ecosystem. Even with several avenues of growth currently in place, we can’t tell how the future of blockchain and value will unfold.

That’s because, to paraphrase Abraham Lincoln, the best way to predict the future of blockchain is to BUIDL it.
