Binance Coin (BNB)
The China-based platform was the first cryptocurrency exchange platform to have their own currency called BNB. Even if it was launched in July 2017, the BNB token was one of the best-performing coin by the end of the year. The success of the BNB token helped Binance considerably to be the biggest cryptocurrency exchange. They use 50% of the fees collected on the exchange to burn BNB coins, this reduces the supply, which, in theory, gives them a higher price per coin.
Binance partnership with Uplive
By the end of the year 2017, Binance has partnered with Asia’s premier high-end live video platform Uplive, to bring Uplive’s more than 20 millions users on the exchabge. Over 25 million virtual gifts are purchased on Uplive every month which gives Binance a great visibility. Uplive created Gifto to decentralize the virtual model from Uplive and it gives the chance to any content creator in the world to make their own virtual gifts.
When announcing their partnership, He Yi, co-founder and CMO of Binance said,
“The founders of Uplive and Gifto have extensive successful startup experience. Their team has excellent execution, with world class product development and operation capabilities. Gifto is based on the proven, real world market demand from Uplive, and will enjoy benefit of jump starting from Uplive’s huge user base… These are the main reasons for our cooperation, we prefer teams that act more than talk.”
On the other hand, Andy Tian, co-founder and CEO of Uplive mentioned,
“It is our pleasure to work with Binance in such a mutually beneficial and innovative fashion. We believe that blockchain technology can really benefit mass consumers around the world, and we are honored to be have a partner such as Binance to bring these benefits to millions of users who previously may not understand blockchain or cryptocurrency… Binance’s world class engineering, operations, and customer care capabilities are key to their rapid ascension, and we are honored to be able to assist.”
