DeFi is the word on everybody’s lips.
Founded in 2017 by Changpeng Zhao (commonly known as CZ), Binance has become one of the largest crypto-asset exchanges in the market, providing a wide variety of software products and services for buying and selling cryptocurrencies.
Binance offers a range of products including crypto futures trading, margin trading and lending, powered by centralized and decentralized exchange platforms.
In April 2019, the company launched its own blockchain, Binance Chain, which is secured by a delegated proof-of-stake consensus. Binance Coin (BNB) is the protocol currency for the blockchain as well as the utility token for Binance’s exchange services. Binance Launchpad is a token sale platform that assists in launching blockchain ventures.
In the three years since its launch, Binance has become home to a variety of projects and initiatives ranging from exchange services, blockchain protocols and charity work, to venture accelerators — maintaining momentum through a constant dance of regulatory arbitrage as the exchange extends and launches services in jurisdictions across the world.
