Binance Weekly Report: Harmony on Launchpad + DEX, #UseBNB Cases Up 50%

Also in this weekly report (May 27 to June 2, 2019): Binance Singapore offers BNB, Binance Charity and Ugandan NGO partner to help 100,000 children, a Binance meetup on a yacht(!) and so much more.

1. The Harmony token sale on Binance Launchpad concluded with 16,666 winning tickets held by 12,977 total winners. About 30.82% of all 54,076 claimed tickets had winning combinations, with each ticket granting 94,503.78 ONE tokens to holders.

But that’s just the start of the rollout for Harmony. As a token created on the community-led Binance Chain, Harmony began trading on both Binance exchange and the decentralized exchange Binance DEX, while also running a trading airdrop on Binance DEX. Over the course of the 5-day promotion, a total of 25,000,000 ONE tokens and 3,000 BNB tokens are being airdropped to people who trade Harmony tokens on Binance DEX.

Numerous crypto observers noted that the promotion propelled Binance DEX to the top spot among decentralized exchanges in terms of trading volume. We are very grateful for the community’s support for Binance DEX. We also congratulate the winners of the #HarmonyLottery contest on Twitter.
