Top 3 Reasons To HODL Binance Coin (BNB)

Published

Binance Coin

After 2018 crypto winter began, everyone involved with cryptocurrencies experienced quite a difficult period. The prices were down, weak projects started failing, and even the strong ones appeared to be in more trouble than they could face. The year was especially difficult for HODLers, as they expected that the coins’ prices would continue to skyrocket. Instead, they lost a fortune, not even knowing if the prices will ever start returning to their former heights.

These days, things do not seem so bad anymore. The prices are still down, most of the coins are still at their newly-found bottoms, but smaller bull runs are improving the situation, while a massive one still remains somewhere in the future, at least according to optimists.

However, among the coins in the vast and diverse crypto market, one token stands out. Binance Coin is not exactly a typical cryptocurrency, and for many reasons. The biggest one is that it is one of the few tokens out there that does not follow Bitcoin’s lead, at least not anymore. Whether that will change in the future remains to be seen, but for now, BNB appears to be going its own way, carving its own path through the crypto market.

Its price has increased by several hundred percents since the year began, and for now, it continues to grow. As such, it is perhaps more worthy of HODLing than other coins. HODLing is still considered to be the best strategy for successful investments, and here are top 3 reasons why you should hold on to your BNB, even if you bought it back when it was much cheaper than it is right now.

1. It was created by Binance

Binance is the largest crypto exchange by trading volume in the world. This makes it the most popular exchange out there, and it serves quite a large part of the world. The exchange developed BNB to be its main token, a base for its platform, its blockchain, as well as its other projects, such as Binance Launchpad.

Lately, it appears that Binance is making all the right moves, which allowed it to reach even further and gain millions of customers. As its native coin, BNB has been extremely successful up to this point, and there is no reason to assume that this will change anytime soon.

The coin is already highly beneficial to the exchange’s customers, as it provides a massive 50% trading fee discount for those who use it. It has numerous trading pairs, and as long as Binance continues doing right by its users, it is likely that BNB will remain a star within the crypto space.

2. Binance brought fiat-crypto transactions

Converting cryptos to fiat currencies is still not an easy task to do. It’s not that it is particularly hard, but most exchanges do not allow a lot of coins to be exchanged for fiat currencies and even those that do typically go only for Bitcoin. Binance aimed to change that with its CEO, Changpeng Zhao, stating that the exchange did not offer fiat gateways, and instead, it relied on others to do that.

However, Binance wanted to change this and make it easier for fiat currencies to enter the crypto space — as long as they have regulatory approval. Back in January of this year, Binance finally did so by launching Binance Jersey — a secure, reliable exchange for exchanging GBP and EUR for Bitcoin and Ethereum in Europe and the UK.

The exchange also hopes to have at least two crypto-fiat gateways on every continent in the following years. BNB token managed to benefit from this decision as well, as the launch of an exchange that targeted specifically European markets brought even more customers to the exchange’s ecosystem, expanding its reach that much further.

3. Binance DEX

Finally, there is Binance DEX, which will run on Binance’s own blockchain. The exchange is currently developing both, with hopes of having them go live soon, potentially in 2019. Announcing a DEX has shown how advanced Binance is when it comes to planning for the future, and how confident it is in the crypto space.

As the world shifts away from centralization, Binance is leading the charge, when most other exchanges would attempt to halt this progression. This is why Binance is still the largest exchange out there, and a favorite of millions around the world.

It goes without saying that BNB will be the DEX’s native coin, and a base cryptocurrency for all transactions, likely with the same benefits as it brings on the exchange’s centralized version. As soon as the DEX goes live, people around the world will rush to it. Their first step will be the purchase of BNB, and the coin is bound to skyrocket when this happens. This is more than a good reason to buy the coin now and HODL for as long as it takes, as it is unlikely that it will stay low-valued for much longer.

3 Reasons Why WISE Token Could Be a Massive Winner in 2021

WISE token

After working in proprietary trading for over a decade, I decided to transition to crypto in early 2017.  Although crypto is significantly different from traditional capital markets, I managed to successfully find a niche for successful and opportunistic trading.  While 2017 was the perfect time to get involved, the past few years have proven to be a bit more challenging as far as generating ROI.

Cryptocurrency traders have spent the past several years searching far and wide for the next big winner.  While the market as a whole hasn’t been very bull friendly, one specific area that appears to be gaining traction is decentralized finance, more commonly known as DeFi.  This area generally refers to the digital assets and financial smart contracts, protocols, and decentralized applications (DApps) built on Ethereum.  The reason why so many crypto entrepreneurs are flocking to this space is that it allows them to create traditional financial vehicles in a decentralized network, outside the meddlesome control of foreign governments.

One extremely popular DeFi project is Chainlink (LINK) which is a decentralized oracle network that provides real-world data to smart contracts on the blockchain.  Chainlink has seen its token price increase by more than 300% year-to-date.    Another impressive project in the space is Kyber Network (KNC) which has seen its token soar from $0.20 at the start of the year to more than $1.60 at present.  Kyber Network’s on-chain liquidity protocol allows decentralized tokens swaps to be…

Lotto Nation is Revolutionizing the Traditional Lottery Industry

Lotto Nation

As the global economy continues to deal with the economic fallout due to the ongoing pandemic, companies are coming to terms with the fact that normalcy may not return for quite a while.  Many economists are wondering how the business landscape will look a year or more from now.  It’s certainly possible that many businesses, such as retailers and restaurants, may be unable to survive the current downturn.  But while some businesses will falter, others will emerge stronger than ever.

Traditionally, when economies go through a severe downturn, companies adapt.  Those that maintain the status quo usually have great difficulty while those that adapt prosper and conquer.  One possible example of this is Lotto Nation.  Thanks to the entrepreneurial skills of Nils Thomson, the Founder and CEO of Lotto Nation, the company is attempting to completely modernize the traditional lottery industry.

Current Lottery Model is Severely Outdated

It’s safe to say that nearly every human that has ever walked the earth has fantasized about winning the massive jackpot that would completely change their life.  These dreams have turned the global lottery industry into a $302 billion market that is expected to reach $380 billion by 2025.  Despite this predicted growth, the industry suffers from a variety of problems that are preventing it from really exploding.

Perhaps the biggest problem is that traditional lotteries are centralized.  Because of this, there is essentially no oversight on what a lottery provider…

Aluna.Social is a Compelling Social Platform for Crypto Traders and Investors

Aluna.Social

When one thinks about the social media landscape, the companies that first come to mind are most likely Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Snapchat.  These platforms are a great way to stay connected with friends, families, and colleagues, especially when geographic distance is a factor.  But, in addition to just chatting about life in general and sharing pictures, social media can be used to bridge the information gap that exists within the investment community.

Over the last decade, many trading offices have been established in large cities all over the world which allow solo traders and investors to pay a monthly fee in exchange for a workspace.  The real benefit to trading in these offices is to participate in the free flow of trading ideas and information.  Proprietary trading is one of the most challenging careers to be successful at and the exchange of ideas is almost required in order to succeed.  Traders at hedge funds and investment banks work in teams so why shouldn’t remote traders?

While these trading offices are a great way to help bridge the information gap, Aluna.Social may provide an even better way, especially as it relates to cryptocurrency trading.

Mission Statement

Aluna.Social, founded by Alvin Lee and Henrique Matias, is a multi-exchange social trading terminal for crypto traders and investors.  The goal of the platform is to help newcomers shorten their learning curve, unlock their full potential, and improve trading performance.  Cryptocurrency trading can…
