Binance cryptocurrency exchange: reviews
Most reviews of Binance cryptocurrency exchange positive. Users note the large number of supported cryptocurrencies, not only the major ones, but also little-known ones. Binance has a huge trading turnover, which allows for very large transactions. In this case, the exchange manages to maintain a high speed of transactions.
It is believed that the exchange has a high level of security. But how the security is ensured - is unknown, and most importantly, the exchange has existed for a little over a year, so its security has not been tested by the most important tester - time. At the same exchange has been repeatedly attacked, so far without success. Although it has suspended operations due to hacker attacks.
Cryptoexchange offers a wide range of trading tools, which allows you to implement different strategies.
Some users praise the referral system of the exchange, because referrals bring the user 20% commissions from transactions.
Quite a lot of negative reviews about Binance cryptocurrency exchange. The main disadvantage of the exchange is the lack of opportunity to use fiat. Therefore, the trader, when withdrawing cryptocurrency, is forced to perform additional manipulations - transferring from exchange to exchange, from exchange to exchange and back and so on. The only way to immediately assess the results of trading in dollars is to conduct transactions with USDT tokens.
There are difficulties both with verification, which is not always fast, and with authentication via SMS in the Russian-speaking segment.
For novice traders, the interface of Binance cryptocurrency exchange seems complicated. Especially Russian-speaking, because the exchange is partially and inaccurately translated into Russian. Therefore, trading functionality has to be mastered "with a dictionary" or by "scientific gut feeling" method. Support in Russian does not work, this is a big disadvantage.
From time to time, especially in periods of high volatility, the exchange "slows down" and sometimes suspends its work, there have been many such cases. The exchange claims that this is due to the influx of traders.
Many users, especially beginners, do not pay attention to the fact that only whole amounts of cryptocurrencies are traded on the exchange.
Binance BNB cryptocurrency
BNB is an internal token, the cryptocurrency of the Binance cryptocurrency exchange. BNB is based on the Ethereum blockchain (ERC20 token). BNB is the 28th in the list of cryptocurrencies by capitalization volume in 24 hours, the value of the coin is $9.67 (data as of 10/28/2018).
BNB's ICO launched on July 1, 2017. Investors purchased 100 million coins over 20 days during the sale, which is a 50% issue. Investments were made for ethereum and bitcoins in three stages, each of which lasted a month.
35% investments were used for technical development of the platform, 50% for the promotion of the brand "Binance", 15% were credited to the reserve fund.
Binance buys and destroys BNB every quarter, the number of coins is gradually decreasing, now there are about 99,00,000 coins in circulation.
Binance Coin cannot be mined, you can only get it by buying or trading on the cryptocurrency exchange Binance. Binance Coin is most often exchanged for BTC and USDT on the Binance cryptocurrency exchange.
BNB was created to promote the Binance cryptocurrency exchange and keep it running. BNB tokens can be used to buy cryptocurrencies, conduct transactions and I/O operations with a reduced fee. The discount plan is valid for 4 years, the first year the discount was 50%, each year it is halved (26). From the fifth year, there will be no discount.
BNB has gathered many rave reviews, but one must be aware of its disadvantages as well. The prospects of using Binance are clearly defined by the discount plan. The real benefit it brings only to those who work directly on Binance, while it is an integral element of the ecosystem of the crypto-exchange. That said, the Binance Coin token is entirely dependent on the plans of the crypto-exchange executives.
ERC20 is the first token standard built on the etherium blockchain, and it has significant technical flaws that could lead to loss of funds. This problem will only worsen over time and may require changes to the crypto-exchange.
Thus, investing in the coin may be too risky; the risks will increase over time. Despite the fact that BNB is a domestic exchange token, its pricing dynamics generally correspond to the trends prevailing in the cryptocurrency market.
Nevertheless, as long as BNB is useful for trading, it is recommended to start activities on this exchange by buying BNB and use it, it really saves the user money.
BNB is more reasonable to keep on the crypto exchange itself to pay commissions. But coins can also be withdrawn to a third-party wallet. For ERC20 tokens a wallet based on this standard is suitable, in particular MyEtherWallet, which can be downloaded from https://www.myetherwallet.com/.
At the same time, you should know that after the withdrawal of BNB coins are not displayed in the wallet. You need to manually activate support for the cryptocurrency through the "Add Token" button. Information about BNB, which will be needed to display the coin in the wallet, can be found on the Etherscan website https://etherscan.io/.
Strategies of working with Binance cryptocurrency
There are no specific trading strategies for Binance Coin. However, given the position of the token on the Binance Coin cryptocurrency exchange and its low price, BNB can be used as a kind of "training" coin, practicing trading strategies with other coins. You can try to trade BNB without verification.
One of the popular strategies on Binance is trading with stop-loss. This strategy allows earning on cryptocurrency fluctuations, avoiding losses on significant drawdowns.
To trade BNBs, you must first buy them. The amount that is purchased will be displayed at the top right of the "Sell BNB" window (27).
Now you need to set Stop-limit order, so as to sell cryptocurrency at the desired price. It is necessary to click on Stop-limit and fill with necessary data the window of selling service (29).
The price of BNB now, on October 28, is 0.0014913 BTC, we can assume that the price will fall further and you need to choose the point at which the order will be activated and the price at which the cryptocurrency will be sold.
For example, when the price reaches 0.0014900 (Stop column), a stop loss is activated (Limit column) and the coin is sold at 0.0014899 (29). The small difference between the stop price and the limit price is due to the fact that, when reaching the price at which the stop-loss is activated, the cryptocurrency price may start to collapse. The price of the coin at which the order is opened can slip further down in a matter of seconds, for example, to 0.0014000, and the order will remain at the exposed price.
Having set a stop-loss, you need to choose how many percent of the deposit you plan to sell and click "Sell BNB". The exchange will ask you to confirm the action, with an explanation of what will happen if the price of BNB reaches the set price. If the trader is sure he is right, he clicks "Yes".
But this action can be canceled. To do this on the same page, you need to move down to the "Open Order Header" section, where you can cancel the order. There are no commissions for this action.
Similarly, a stop limit is placed on a rising cryptocurrency price. For example, if the price went up to 0.0016000 and there is confidence that it will not fall below 0.0015500. In the Stop column put, for example, 0.0015500, in the Limit column 0.0015499. further, confirm the sale at the declared price. If the price continues to rise - put a stop loss at an even higher price level. Thus, the stop-limit is gradually moved higher.

It is believed that a stop loss should be placed between 5% and 20% of the initial price, depending on the cryptocurrency and volatility.
If there is a need to withdraw cryptocurrency outside of the exchange, it should be remembered that it is only possible in whole numbers. But in the case of BNB this need does not arise often.
