Get to know more about the platform’s advantages, as well as the opportunities that emerge when you use the platform.

Since its creation in October 2019 for just one market, Binance P2P has emerged as a leading global marketplace for peer-to-peer trading of cryptocurrencies. Its position as a key feature of Binance, the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange by trade volume, has made the platform a safe, reliable, and high-traffic venue for your P2P trading needs. In addition, Binance P2P’s value as an ideal marketplace is boosted by its interconnections with perhaps the widest suite of crypto and crypto-financial services currently offered in a single platform. 

But on its own, Binance P2P also offers many advantages that make it stand out in a competitive field of P2P marketplaces. In this article, we identify those key advantages, as well as the opportunities that you can explore to fully realize the potential of your P2P trading experience. 

Advantages of Trading in Binance P2P

1. Zero trading fees

Since day one, Binance P2P has not charged any fees to every transaction on the platform. This way, every deal you make results in you getting the full gain, without worrying about charges or other hassles that come with other crypto P2P websites.

2. Multiple payment methods and fiat currencies

Binance P2P has also built a network of widely used payment channels as available options for your P2P transactions. We support over 700 payment methods around the world, so you’re likely to find at least one that corresponds to what you often use. We also offer over 100 fiat currencies, covering major P2P trading spots around the world. 

3. Truly local and global marketplace

The network of payment channels and fiat currencies we support has turned Binance P2P into a compelling global product, whereas many other P2P platforms are geared specifically toward a few markets. While hyper-localization has its merits, you can also see this localized emphasis on Binance P2P, even with a global reach, through our multi-language customer support and focus on supporting every region’s biggest payment providers. You can have local and global in one place with Binance P2P.

4. Escrow service for your safety

We combine zero fees with a global reach, and we add top-notch security and assurance on top of that combination. Each Binance P2P trade involves escrow service protection, which assures that each counterparty in a transaction is protected from any attempt by either party to act in bad faith.

Opportunities From P2P Trading

The following list of opportunities is based on best practices shared by some of our merchants, illustrated in a hypothetical way. While each region has its own local situations that may prevent people from doing certain activities, we believe that the following tips and activities help P2P merchants make the most out of their use of Binance P2P.

1. Profit Margin Calculation

Before you start trading, you need to set up your profit margin. Observe the prices in the market and configure your price strategy (whether floating or fixed) to ensure your profits.

2. Publishing Both Buy and Sell Ads 

The spread is what we call the difference between the prevailing price on buy and sell sides in a P2P platform. The right strategy in placing both buy and sell ads will make the difference in terms of realizing what you want to achieve in P2P trading. You can make the spread thin if you aim to get more customers and gain more trust and higher completion rates, or you can widen the spread if you aim to focus on the profit side.

3. Create A Crypto Trading Business in Your Area

Through Binance P2P, you can buy and sell crypto in your local market. Several merchants have reported earning between a couple of hundred dollars to over $5,000 every day, depending on the size of the market. You have the opportunity to post your ad and provide a competitive price that other traders could not resist taking.

4. Go International

Binance P2P is a global platform supporting more than 100 fiat currencies. You can buy crypto using your local currency, take advantage of a competitive price in your market, and sell that crypto in other markets worldwide where people are willing to pay more for the same amount of crypto. However, take note that this kind of operation requires a certain level of coordination across countries, as well as some needed paperwork, so a bigger market comes with a bigger set of responsibilities.

5. Take Advantage of Multiple Payment Methods 

Binance P2P has more than 700 payment methods that you can use. People will often pay a higher price to use a certain payment method that they prefer. You can take advantage of this by buying crypto at a competitive price through a very accessible payment method and then sell it using a less accessible payment method. There will be people willing to pay more just to use that payment method that is harder to service.

6. Explore Arbitrage

With zero fees to worry about, Binance P2P offers unique opportunities to explore discrepancies between market pairs and international markets. You can earn from these chances if you are alert enough to spot these and act accordingly.

7. Buy and Hold

Of course, there’s nothing wrong with the good old HODL, especially if you’re not into frequent P2P transactions. You can just buy crypto and then hold it until it goes up significantly, and Binance P2P’s support of multiple payment methods and currencies will make it easier for you to do so, compared to other platforms.
