Binance is a cryptocurrency exchange that is the largest in the world in terms of daily cryptocurrency trading volume. It was founded in 2017. It’s headquarters is in the Cayman Islands. Binance was founded by Changpeng Zhao, a developer who previously built high frequency trading software. Binance was created in China, but it quickly shifted its headquarters before the Chinese government imposed restrictions on cryptocurrency trading.
Binance was investigated for money laundering and tax evasion by the US Department of Justice and the Internal Revenue Service in 2021. In June, the UK’s Financial Conduct Authority ordered Binance to cease all regulated business in the country. Binance supplied client information, including names and addresses, with the Russian authorities in 2021.
Binance coin (BNB)
Binance has released two cryptocurrencies that it created: Binance Coin (BNB) and BinanceUSD (BUSD). BNB debuted in July 2017 as an Ethereum currency before transitioning to the Binance Smart Chain (BSC) in September 2020. BSC was eventually combined with the older Binance Chain and relaunched as the BNB chain. BNB Chain employs “Proof of Staked Authority,” a hybrid of proof of stake and proof of authority. It has 21 validators who have been approved. Binance Coin was the cryptocurrency with the third greatest market capitalization as of 2021. Binance allows its users to pay fees for BNB exchanges.
BSC works with the Ethereum virtual computer and supports smart contracts (EVM). There have been several concerns about Binance Smart Chain’s level of centralisation, which has resulted in several network vulnerabilities.

Binance Adds Apple Pay and Google Pay Support
The importance of payment apps in the financial industry has grown significantly in recent years. Consumers are adopting these sorts of applications in greater numbers than ever before, and their integration into the bitcoin ecosystem has been steady. As a result, the largest cryptocurrency trading platform by volume is integrating them on a broad scale. Binance has announced that customers may now purchase cryptocurrency using Apple Pay and Google Pay in their newest Binance Build Tweet.
Both mobile wallets are among the most popular on the market and have the potential to capture a sizable market share of people interested in digital assets. According to Business.com, Apple Pay has 43.9 million users and Google Pay has 25 million users, making it the first and second most popular digital wallet.
Furthermore, the entrance of these mobile wallets into the bitcoin realm is yet another step forward in the general accessibility of digital assets. With the simplicity of use that this type of upgrade brings, Binance and the industry as a whole have the potential for the biggest client acquisition into the realm of crypto.
