Binance DEX ‘Binance Chain’ is Ready for Public Testing on February 20 :CZ

Binance’s decentralized exchange Binance DEX is targeted to release for public testing on February 20. 

Binance DEX Coming on February 20

The decentralized exchange of Binance, Binance Chain is all set to make it to the testnet in the coming week. Binance CEO, Changpeng Zhao took to Twitter, to share it with the crypto community that the target is set for February 20th for public testing.

Recently, in the “ask me anything” session, Zhao revealed new details about the decentralized exchange that is currently under development by the largest cryptocurrency exchange, Binance. Initially, the number of network consensus validators on the Binance Chain will be small, starting with 11 validator nodes. Once the exchange goes live, they will be looking for “guys who can run very fast validators.”

“So, in the Binance Chain, there’s no smart contract. We just have an interface for you to issue tokens, and then you can trade it. Binance Chain is a very simple chain in terms of application, but it can handle very large loads. It is our opinion that the load is more important than the features.”

Binance Chain to Charge $100,000 to List Coins

In the beginning, Binance will have a lot of influence over the network as shared by Zhao meaning compared to other networks, it would be more centralized. This is in line with his “there is no absolute decentralization” remarks last year as “decentralization is not safer by default,” he had said.

At that time, Zhao had said, “Centralized and Decentralized exchanges will co-exist in the near future, complementing each other, while also having interdependence. We stand here today because we believe that Blockchain technology will change the world.”

During the AMA, it has also been revealed that Binance Chain will be charging close to $100,000 for listing new coins. This is a deliberate move on Binance part as Zhao has explained, the higher fee is to “reduce the number of spam or scam projects.” Though the fee estimate is $100k, it will be adjustable over time.
