Yoni Assia, co-founder and CEO of the platform, said that the platform is a true believer of crypto potential. Binance Coin can be used at the Binance exchange in order to pay for trading fees. Users get discounted rates if they decide to use BNB tokens. With this listing, eToro users will be able to diversify their cryptocurrency portfolios even further.
Assia said hat portfolio diversification was one of the reasons they’ve decided to add this token. Users have been requesting new cryptos to be added to the platform, and eToro has decided to add support to BNB.
BNB has always been considered a utility token that helped users transact on the Binance exchange. However, BNB’s status continues to grow as a utility token since there are more use cases for it.
However, Assia and eToro do not have a problem with this. About it, he commented:
“As a regulated securities broker, we have the ability to offer both utility and security tokens on our platform. We support the movement of assets onto the blockchain and the tokenization of securities. In fact, we believe that in the future we will see the greatest transfer of wealth ever, onto the blockchain.”
At the time of writing, Binance is the largest crypto exchange by trading volume in the last 24 hours. The exchange registered a trading volume of $611 million dollars during the last day. The most traded pairs at the exchange are BTC/USDT, WRP/BTC and ETH/BTC, accounting for 22% of the trading volume.
Binance Coin is currently the 14th most valuable virtual currency in the market. Indeed, it has been one of the least harmed cryptocurrencies after the bear market. And indeed, it allowed the exchange to continue its growth trend during the last year. Each BNB token can be bought for $9.35 dollars and it has a market capitalization of $1.22 billion dollars.
