Still very young, but promptly growing in the market, Binance Coin seems to be doing more than well with the latest adoption to a FinTech group as well as trading in the green despite market trends. Binance has most recently announced a new trading pair with BNB, which probably caused the coin to bounce off and bloom in a troublesome market.

Binance Coin to Back Crypto Loans with Nexo

Earlier this week both Nexo and Binance have announced that Binance Coin and Nexo will be cooperating in order to deliver the best crypto loan services as provided by Nexo and powered by Binance Coin.

Nexo represents a FinTech group backed by Credissimo, and they have most recently announced on their official Twitter page with a post that came out between June 14th and June 15th, that Nexo will be adding Binance Coin as collateral for crypto loans, meaning that BNB will now be backing crypto loans together with Nexo.

Nexo has also stated in their post that Binance executives will be getting a 50% discount on their first loans with a choice between using Binance coin or Nexo as collateral for their loans.

With their official announcement, Nexo has also thanked Binance exchange for creating a “benchmark for what Nexo is doing for lending.”

One of the main reasons for having BNB integrated into the crypto loan plan services of Nexo platform is the fact that Nexo considered BNB to represent a safe collateral as it managed to showcase its stability in the market over its short but memorable lifetime by far.

The team behind Nexo also stated that Binance and Nexo have mutual customers with similar needs so that the collaboration comes as a natural product of similar interests and objectives.

With BNB having been added to the crypto loan services that Nexo is offering Binance Coin might consequently get more on its popularity while introducing BNB as a stable choice for collateral for various crypto loan plans that Nexo is offering.

With more exposure, Binance coin was able to bounce off above the current market trends while collecting gains along the way.

However, Nexo/Binance Coin collaboration isn’t the only susceptive factor that pushed Binance above its peers in the market for the last 24 hours.

It has been said that there are more than several currencies that have already sent their applications for having their coins accepted as collaterals with Nexo crypto loan plans, while Nexo confirmed that they will be adding more cryptos to their list of services in the near future.

What makes crypto-based loans on Nexo so attractive to customers is the fact that these loans actually provide financial freedom while revealing all the details of the loan plan and keeping everything transparent. That means that the loan payment is instant and there are no hidden collaterals or fees you are not aware of, which might consequently push the value of BNB further up from this point.

Binance Adds New Trading Pairs with Binance Coin

If you take a closer look at the daily charts of all currencies in the market for the past 24 hours, you will notice that Ethereum Classic and Binance Coin stood as rare top coins that have managed to acquire a flattering set of gains despite the current market trend.

For the past couple of days already, we can see the majority of currencies going down with the market trend while trading in the red, but somehow Binance Coin and Ethereum Classic managed to get above their peers from the top list and get onto collecting rises.

It is generally considered that the main reason for this unexpected rise was actually greatly expected on the behalf of Binance as it is thought that Binance exchange strategically added a new trading pair.

It isn’t hard to guess with the latest rare rises in the market that the added trading pair was actually Binance Coin/Ethereum Classic, which consequently increased the trading volumes of both BNB and ETC while acquiring a fruitful soil for collecting new gains in the market despite the sluggish atmosphere.

However, Binance has added more trading pairs in the last couple of days, so all of the added pairs, ICX, SC and IOTX, have experienced rises.

While Binance Coin is still going up by nearly 6% today while trading in the green at the price of 16.57$, “threatening” to go above 17$, ETH started to drop with the latest change in the market while ICX, SC, and IOTX are acquiring minor but important rises against the dollar.

This case only additionally confirms why BNB made up for Nexo’s first choice for crypto-based loans rather than their own NEXO, while also showing the dominance of BNB’s parent platform, Binance exchange.

The crypto prices have surged quite high in the last few months. Of course, their progress is nowhere near the one seen in 2017, but they appear to be getting there, one day at the time. However, things might not be as simple as that, and according to recent performance — it is more than possible that a major Bitcoin crash is incoming.

The fact is that cryptos saw a massive amount of growth in a very short period. Bitcoin itself more than doubled its price in only two months. Now, the rally is starting to crash in on itself, and the coin is already about $1,000 lower than last week. If such development does come to pass, a lot of people will experience quite large losses, although experienced investors might find some opportunities, and leverage in order to enhance their holdings’ long-term value.

For example, Bitcoin dominance is expected to crash very quickly, which will work in favor of quite a lot of altcoins. While this does not seem to be the best time to invest in BTC, altcoins are another story, and diversifying a portfolio now might end up being very profitable in days to come.

Bitcoin behavior mirrors the pre-bear market situation

The crash that analysts are predicting right now comes as a direct consequence of all the hype that has been building up in…

Crypto bulls are back, that much is clear. The long-lasting, harsh crypto winter is gone, and the new era in digital currency sector opens up some rather interesting opportunities. With many more bull runs expected to come in months ahead, a lot of coins are likely to blow up and maybe even hit new all-time highs, although that still remains purely theoretical.

On the other hand, the fact is that numerous coins are seeing prices that were not achieved since early 2018, and the overall momentum remains bullish. With that in mind, even if new records do not come for a very long time — chances are that many of the coins will blow up enough for investors to see some serious gains in months to come. As a result, investing in some of these coins now might be a very profitable decision, for those who have the patience to wait a few months. Here are some of the projects believed to have the greatest potential to go big in the second half of 2019 and beyond.

1. TRON (TRX)

Putting TRON on the list should not really surprise anyone, as the project constantly comes up with new project updates, partnerships, and alike. It also constantly breaks records, as is becoming one of the biggest players in the dApp and smart contract development sector.

In the past few…

It is commonly known that the world of finances has the biggest problem with the crime of all existing industries around the world. It has been so throughout history. While the financial world has evolved, so did the criminal activities, and they continue to be an issue. With the arrival of cryptocurrencies, many were hoping that financial crime might be disrupted. However, for now, at least, it appears that cryptos themselves cannot find a way to resolve issues such as international money laundering.

In fact, when it comes to money laundering, the crypto sector appears to be the weakest link, especially because of the nature of digital currencies. The anonymity that cryptos are being praised for means that anyone can get a payment from an unknown source from anywhere in the world. This method can then be used for financing drug trafficking, cyberattacks, terrorists, and more.

Until recently, it was not easy for bad actors to make use of cryptocurrencies obtained for illegal purposes. The number of merchants willing to accept the coins was low, and criminals were forced to find a way to exchange crypto into fiat currencies. However, this came with a set of issues, such as taking foreign exchange risks and then sending the money through wallets and exchanges to a banking system that would allow withdrawal. The banking account was the biggest obstacle here,…
