Users have been waiting for a long period of time the launching of this new platform that aims at changing the way in which decentralized applications are deployed.
At the same time, Binance is also expected to launch a new fiat-to-crypto exchange in Singapore. Everything is ready to be launching the platform. Binance has been testing it for a long period of time and users are waiting to have an easy way to purchase digital assets with fiat currencies.
This is not the first fiat-to-crypto platform launched by Binance. In the past, the exchange launched a platform in Uganda for users to purchase virtual currencies with Ugandan shilling. Moreover, Binance Jersey is another platform that supports British pound and Euro. The exchange has also launched a “Lite” venture in Australia in which users can easily purchase BTC using cash.
Binance Coin has also been growing in the market. The digital currency has reached almost $21, a price level that it reached back at the beginning of 2018. In December 2018, the digital asset fell down to $4.5. Now it is being traded almost five times higher.
Currently, BNB has a market capitalization of almost $3 billion and it is the seventh largest digital asset in the market.
