Binance Exchange Review – Comparison, Fees and Functions

Binance is a crypto to crypto exchange with a focus on low trading fees. By being a purely cryptocurrency exchange and not having to deal with fiat, they can deal with less regulatory issues. It also has an impressive listing of Initial Coin Offerings and altcoins. Binance is based in Hong Kong and it’s servers are located in South Korea. Their main site offers support in English, Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Russian, Spanish and French. This allows them to focus on the international market and has led to a partnership with QUOINE, a leading global fintech firm.

Fee comparison with other exchanges (taker fees)

Binance also has the additional benefit of using their BNB token to pay for exchange fees. Using the token currently grants a 50% discount rate, meaning that fees can be as low as 0.05%

Stop-Limit Function

Recently, Binance has added a Stop-Limit Function to their exchange. A stop-limit order will be executed at a specified (or potentially better) price, after a given stop price has been reached. Once the stop price is reached, the stop-limit order becomes a limit order to buy or sell at the limit price or better.

Explanation of Terms:

Stop price: When the current price reaches the given stop price, the stop-limit order is executed to buy or sell at the limit price or better.

Limit price: The price (or potentially better) that the stop-limit order is executed at.
Quantity: The quantity to buy or sell in the stop-limit order.
Please note: A maximum of 2 stop-limit orders are allowed for each trading pair at any point in time.

To show an Example: The last traded price of BNB is 0.000165 BTC, and the resistance is around 0.000169 BTC. If you think that the price will go higher after the price reaches the resistance, you can put a Stop-Limit order to automatically buy more BNB at the price of 0.000170 BTC. This way you won’t have to continuously watch market movements waiting for the price to reach your target price. Approach: Select “Stop-Limit” order, then specify the stop price to be 0.000170BTC and the limit price to be 0.000172BTC, with quantity as 10. Then click the button “Buy BNB” to submit the order.

    Hello Boxmining, do you notice that at Binance the price of BTC and ETH are always low vs other exchanges. At Binance, the coins are not traded against a fiat currency and all trades are pair trades against BTC and ETH. So if you deposit ETH or BTC, you would effectively get less value for your coins to be traded. You can try to game them by going the other way, but it would be difficult because most exchanges do not carry the exotic coins so you got to trade it back to BTC and ETH. In summary, only they can get you but you can’t get them. Brilliant strategy by them. Horrible for clients. Also, if only coins are traded and no currency ever leave, it is mathematically impossible for them to collapse absent from a hack, of course. Very smart! Do you agree? Thanks!

  5. Binance is great, BITTREX on the other hand ripped me off, have 100k USD worth of bitcoin lost. They are a exit scam. If you have been ripped off please join my class action

  6. hey admin thanx for post.
    Binance is cryptocurrency exchange platform. This platform is available for all users but it is mainly focused on the Chinese market. Binance is basically a new Chinese company formed by a well trusted and a well-trained team.

    You may or may not like binance but it is better to do some background checks first before realizing that you don’t like the platform while your money is already stuck in their system. https://www.complaintline.com/binance check them out and see what you can find.
