Binance is one of the top crypto exchanges in the world in terms of transaction volume and the number of active users. BNB tokens are used to get trading fee discounts of 25% for Binance users who hold them. Binance DEX (Decentralized Exchange) is also a pretty good platform.

Everything about Binance is unsavory. CZ has been kicked out of two countries for legal issues, and the platform-issued Binance Token is very problematic both legally and as a centralized unit of control for the Binance eco-system.

Of course, it's a shrewd business asset issued by a cunning businessman, but the token is the epitome of a centralized shitcoin designed to empower the

As long as Binance Exchange is around, BNB will thrive. I don't see Binance going anywhere soon especially with the #SAFU fund for user protection. Now they are offering free staking services as well.

One of the most successful exchanges and one of the most profitable businesses that ever conducted an ICO; BNB's early investors have made quite a killing so far, but I am afraid that the latest inflated prices due to the IEO hype (that is now cooling down a lot) is going to be corrected unless CZ comes out with yet another way to pump the coin. BNB shows however that you can make a business work based

Binance coin is a utility token for one of the largest, most reputable cryptocurrency exchanges in the world. Traders purchase Binance coin to pay fees on trades so the price of this coin usually moves upwards when volume increases.

They are the biggest exchange and brand in the crypto space in my eyes! had some shady press lately but thats just ruthless business for you! 

their coin should do very well if they carry on to be as successful as they have been throughout their time in the space :)

Binance is obviously the monolithic force to be reckoned with in crypto. However, Binance has recently been caught extorting information from other projects through leveraging their position as the leading exchange. They are very "legit" but have some less-than-ethical business practices.

It's binance, pretty legit as they are one of the biggest exchanges, I'm hoping they create some real utility for this coin as it seems to be for collecting dust and using as a trading pair... Not the most compelling

Love my BNB which is making me very happy recently :). CZ is amazing (sorry for fangirling) but he is saving and improving the crypto world with his leadership and Binance programs that aim to help out other crypto projects. Binance is the only exchange I use recently and BNB is great for lowering fees!

Apparently one of the best performing coins despite bear market conditions, and against bitcoin it is even making new all time highs since its inception. Technically it is still an ERC20 token used for the fundraise to fund the launch of binance exchange, but they are planning their own native chain as well. It is a utility token that can be used for the following aspects: 

  • 25%
  • one of the base currencies in the available trading pairs.
Demand for the token is very dependent on the demand for services that the Binance company (such as the exchange for paying trading fees). There is a token burn program to make the supply smaller, but this effect will be lesser over time.

Just to summarize the reasons for higher demand, specifically recently:

  • BNB is required for participating in Launchpad which is the new form of ICOs. This could generate a lot of hype, perhaps comparable to what happened to ETH when the ICO hype in 2017 was happening
  • BNB will be main trading pair coin on Binance DEX
  • Binance is encouraging ERC20 projects to switch to Binance Chain (which although maybe not illegal to do, it certainly is not clean business either, so this is part of the slightly shady score)
  • More Binance coin (500) in your account gives right to higher referral fee.
  • As said already: trade fee discount with BNB. 
On internet there is a significant amount of people that accuse Binance of shady practices. I did not look into that, but you might wanna take that into further investigation. For the extra caution required, has added to the slightly shady score too.

If epic hype pumps up the price of BNB to astronomical heights, which it already did, please be careful, because demand that is based on primarily hype has a very high chance of eventually being corrected by the market. As of right now I do think that mid term there is still room for growth and in the next bull market it is probably going to outperform many other coins, but I think it wouldn't hurt to secure some profits (if any) from time to time on the way up.
