The world of cryptocurrencies is becoming wider and more relevant. This is one of the main reasons why Binance is such a useful tool today. It is a exchange that has incorporated a large number of payment options, between fiat money and crypto assets; In addition, part of its fame is due to the low commissions of each transaction compared to other platforms of this style.
The Digital Currency Exchange (DCE) –Cambio de Moneda Digital, in Spanish–, or simply exchange, is a business in which two or more people can exchange digital currencies (cryptocurrencies) for other assets, including fiat money (dollar, euro , among others).
This project officially started in July 2017 in China, with Changpeng Zhao, a Chinese-Canadian businessman, as the founder. The start was achieved thanks to a funding of $ 15 million that he was able to raise from multiple sources.
However, that same year the Chinese government banned the commercialization of cryptocurrencies, so Zhao decided to move, together with his company, to Japan, where he continued with his operations.
In March 2018, Binance became the platform for exchange with the highest number of transactions worldwide (a feat that it still maintains). And today it has expanded to other territories and has alliances with Taiwan, Bermuda, Israel, Malta and several European countries.
Does Binance work in Venezuela?
Through the platform, users can buy or sell cryptocurrencies such as bitcoins and ethereum using bolivars through bank transactions or with the use of mobile payment. Binance offers a digital wallet where the user can deposit their crypto assets.
