A new statement published by a popular cryptocurrency trading platform, eToro, announced the listing of the platform’s 13th digital coin — Binance Coin (BNB). This has made eToro the second platform to allow users to trade BNB against USD.

eToro’s initial goal was to become a regulated securities broker. Because of that, it has the ability to offer security tokens to its users. However, it has become clear that it is also looking to become more deeply involved in trading cryptocurrencies. As stated, BNB is the 14th coin that the platform is now offering. Other cryptos that are listed on eToro include Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, Dash, Ripple, Stellar, Litecoin. Ethereum Classic, NEO, EOS, IOTA, Zcash, and Cardano.

Binance Coin is the safest crypto this year

eToro has, of course, conducted an analysis of each and every token prior to their listing on the platform. The same is true for BNB. However, what makes BNB unique is eToro’s belief that this is currently the safest cryptocurrency on the market. In addition, eToro also compared it to Bitcoin, stating that BTC has a rather wide presence, that investors need to be careful about.

In comparison, BNB’s volume is concentrated on its native exchange, but this makes it better in terms of security. Even so, eToro admits that this also makes Binance Coin vulnerable to potential internal issues. As a part of their statement, they also noticed that BNB’s coin supply is greater than that of Bitcoin. To them, this is an indication that BNB might surpass Bitcoin in terms of market cap as well. However, there are a lot of other cryptocurrencies that exceed BTC’s supply by far, and none of them managed to surpass its market cap, so this line of reasoning remains questionable.

In the end, eToro decided that the fact that BNB is limited to Binance is a positive thing. eToro’s managing director, Guy Hirsch, stated that the platform adds support for coins that, in their opinion, have a top product behind them, as well as a clear roadmap for that product. Due to the fact that Binance has been creating an innovative infrastructure for some time, eToro believes that their products are soon to be in great demand.

By adding BNB to their platform, the coin will also gain more exposure, and a large number of investors and traders will get the opportunity to start trading it. Considering that eToro has over nine million users around the world, this is more than likely to happen.

Still, it should be noted that eToro is a rather careful platform, which is why they will introduce a daily investment limit for Binance Coin, at least for a while. Additionally, they stressed that the asset may become unavailable from time to time, but this will not be the case when it comes to the closing of open trades.

As for Binance itself, its CEO and founder, Changpeng Zhao, stated that the exchange’s entire team is honored and excited about the new listing. Furthermore, the exchange believes in creating utility and value for their asset on a long-term basis, which is why they will continue to do so in collaboration with eToro.

Cryptocurrency Collateralized Debt Positions Are Growing in Popularity

While Bitcoin (BTC) continues to hover around the magical 10,000 price level, altcoins continue to fight an uphill battle.  Simply put, hopes of a future bull run continue to diminish as Bitcoin maintains its dominance.  One school of thought is that a few altcoins will survive and flourish, but which ones are anyone’s guess.  That being said, it’s hard to go wrong picking against the top coins like Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Litecoin (LTC), and EOS.  These projects have managed to find a foothold in the market and have a better chance than most of staying there.  While traders wait for their positions to increase in value, one opportunity that may be worth looking at is initiating a collateralized debt position.

What is a Cryptocurrency CDP?

In traditional terms, a CDP is essentially putting up collateral in order to receive a loan against the deposited amount.  There are several examples of this in our day to day lives.  Auto title loans from large companies like TitleMax are extremely popular with consumers.  Consumers are essentially able to use their car as collateral in exchange for a cash payment which can then be used for whatever needs the consumer has.  The consumer can continue using their car as long as debt payments are made.

The same concept applies to cryptocurrency CDPs.  Consumers are able to put up crypto tokens, such as…

I’m sure all of us remember the cryptocurrency glory days of 2017 and early 2018.  It was one of the biggest bull runs in history and created incredibly wealth for quite a few early entrants.  Unfortunately, for most of us, those gains have most likely been wiped out during the altcoin apocalypse.  The truth is that traders probably thought a bit too highly of their trading abilities when the reality was that anyone could have thrown a dart at a board and ended up making money.

As markets mature (and the crypto market is definitely maturing) it becomes more and more difficult to generate alpha.  In that regard, it’s similar to traditional financial markets.  I can remember trading during my high school days.  It was the late 90s and right in the middle of the dot.com boom.  Eventually, however, the euphoria fades away and reality hits hard.  Now, it’s become rather difficult to actually trade profitably which has given way to the rise of hedge funds.

Hedge funds are investment funds that pool capital from accredited and/or institutional investors and invest in a variety of assets, often with extremely complex portfolio-construction and risk management techniques.  The professionals employed by hedge funds are the best of the best and have spent years honing their craft.  That is why they’re able to make the millions of dollars that they normally…

There has been a lot of renewed enthusiasm in the cryptocurrency market thanks mainly to Bitcoin’s strong move about 10,000.  Although Bitcoin continues to show its dominance, the altcoin market has yet to benefit from that rally.  A few of the largest altcoins remain popular but the rest of the market continues to lag behind.  In 2018, there was a lot of talk regarding a possible altcoin apocalypse where only the strong would survive.  That prediction appears to be playing out as expected.  Going forward, only the best projects that have a real world need will survive.  Crypto traders will have to spend a lot of their time doing proper research in order to find the best opportunities, just like in all financial markets.  One promising project that appears to have the makings of a future winner is KaratGold Coin.
