The cryptocurrency market may not be in the best of positions right now in terms of valuation, as prices have considerably slumped across the board. The market leaders, especially Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Ripple have all shown signs of a struggle. While many cryptocurrencies are facing the effects of this price slump, the Binance Coin, or BNB tokens are considerably doing well. Analysts have sighted many reasons behind the stability of Binance Coin, one of them being the nature of the coin. As of 18/06/2018, Binance Coin’s value is $17.01 USD, placing it comfortably within the top 20 cryptocurrencies according to coinmarketcap.
The Binance Coin has been largely overlooked by a majority of the global crypto-community, with only a minority portion enjoying the various benefits it has to offer. With this in mind, Binance Coin can be regarded as a profitable investment for the rest of the year, due in part because of its massive media interest as well as an all-time high, reached last Monday. Indeed the BNB/BTC pair has been receiving quite the push in recent weeks, fuelled by some important factors listed below.
Binance Coin: Judicious Investment
Much of Binance Coin’s success can be attributed to its parent exchange Binance’s success. In the first quarter of 2018, it was reported that Binance had achieved a turnover that has dwarfed that of several high profile banks of the world including heavyweights such as JP Morgan, Deutsche Bank etc. There are two main driving forces behind the success of Binance Coin, which are discussed in brief below.
- The Role of Binance Cryptocurrency Exchange: As mentioned before, Binance Coin (BNB) is the native currency of the Binance cryptocurrency exchange, arguably one of the largest and well-known exchanges of its type. As of 2018, the daily trading volumes on the platform reached close to $2 Billion USD, offering more than 100 crypto-pairs to its users. The Binance team introduced the BNB token back in mid-2017 as the platforms native token, offering various discounts, bonuses and other advantages to its users. Because of this, analysts have unanimously agreed that the price of the coin will grow as Binance gets more customers in the near future.
- Addition of Coins: Unlike other well-known crypto exchanges like Coinbase and Bittrex, Binance has remained undeterred by the various KYC/AML restrictions in place. This has allowed Binance to add 15 new tokens to the exchange which will directly result in the appreciation of BNB’s value.
This phenomenon has already been experienced in the last 2 months, where BNB has seen an increase of over 50% of its value. As BNB coins are almost a necessity on the platform, the higher rate of adoption will drive its prices even forward.
Current Market Scenario:
Binance Coin’s value has remained stable despite the market downtrend. This is because the Binance team has made sure that its users are actively trading on the exchange. Besides conducting regular airdrops, Binance has reinstated the community coin of the month, a voting contest to get a particular coin listed on the exchange. All of this has raised a great degree of positive sentiment from the market, which in turn adds to the coins stability.
As discussed above, various factors have made Binance Coin a favorable asset to hold in the forecasted bearish market for the rest of the year. Especially for someone, looking to hold value in this bearish market, Binance Coin is the answer. It is estimated that Binance Coin’s value would soon cross the $20 mark and could further soar higher as the overall market breaks upwards. For the time being though, Binance Coin looks to stay good, especially since it is backed by such a popular and heavily traded exchange such as Binance.

XNO Token of Xeno NFT Hub listed on Bithumb Korea Exchange
Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 25th January, 2021, // ChainWire //
Xeno Holdings Limited (xno.live ), a blockchain solutions company based in Hong Kong, has announced the listing of its ecosystem utility token XNO on the ‘Bithumb Korea’ cryptocurrency exchange on January 21st 2021.
Xeno NFT Hub (market.xno.live ), developed by Xeno Holdings, enables easy minting of digital items into NFTs while also providing a marketplace where anyone can securely trade NFTs.
The Xeno NFT Hub project team includes former members of the technology project Yosemite X based in San Francisco and professionals such as Gabby Dizon who is a games industry expert and NFT space influencer based in Southeast Asia.
NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.
NFTs are already being actively traded in markets globally. For…
Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?
2020 has been an incredible year for crypto as investors have generated windfall profits and crypto projects have seen their businesses gain the spotlight they’ve been looking for. While Bitcoin has received most of the attention after major institutional investors announced they were accumulating the increasingly scarce asset, many altcoins have also seen their fair share of glory. When looking at all the big winners of the past year, the first project that probably comes to mind is Chainlink, having appreciated by more than 550% YTD and now valued at over $4.5 billion. But, the actual biggest winner of the year is HEX with a YTD return of over 5,000%.
I mention both of the above projects as they have each taken slightly different paths to achieve greatness. Chainlink has devoted resources toward building a fundamentally sound business with many strategic partnerships while HEX has spent vast sums of money on marketing and promotion. Both approaches are valid, but one thing is certain, it is absolutely imperative for crypto projects to let the crypto community know what makes them special. Of course, one of the reasons that makes crypto so valuable is the powerful blockchain technology that most projects are utilizing.
Cryptocurrency vs. Blockchain Technology
It’s important to make a distinction between blockchain technology and cryptocurrency. Although they are often used interchangeably, they are different. Blockchain technology and crypto were both created after the 2008 financial crisis, but cryptocurrency…

He also added “This does not mean we will prohibit other types of NFTs from our ecosystem However, it simply means that XENO’s efforts as a company will be targeted into these verticals initially as a cohesive business approach.”
Development and Procurement Lead, Gabby Dizon explained, “Despite our initial focus, we found ourselves with a unique opportunity to host some of the works of Mr. Hiro Yamagata. We are collaborating with Japanese artist Hiro Yamagata to enshrine some of his artwork into NFTs.”
