What will the coin be used for?
Users of the Binance exchange system can utilize the Binance cryptocurrency to pay fees on
the exchange. The fees that will be covered are not only those that pertain to individual traders
but also to those who are seeking to list on the exchange (which would incur a fee) and then
fees related to other matters as well.
The reason why an individual would want to utilize BNB to pay their trading fees is because the
exchange provides a discount which decreases over time. Initially, BNB fees, will be charged at
a fifty percent discount, then, in the second year, the exchange will provide a twenty five percent
discount, in the third year a twelve and a half percent discount and lastly, in the fourth year, it
will provide almost a seven percent discount.
Those traders who seek to continuously trade on a regular basis would see great value in the
reduction of fees as increased fees can quickly eat up one’s profits.
