“Fast and secure decentralized digital asset exchange. The new cryptocurrency trading standard is here,” states the website of the brand new launched Binance DEX.
The much anticipated Decentralized exchange (DEX) of the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange Binance has finally launched its testnet for public testing. Binance DEX aims to bring the best of its centralized exchange’s features in a decentralized setting.
As Binance CEO, Changpeng Zhao better known as CZ has pointed out previously, the focus of the DEX would be on security, user-friendliness, and speed. Recently, in an interview, he had shared,
“The user interface on Binance DEX is similar to the interface of Binance.com. Fast, secure and user-friendly. We envision the Binance Chain to help grow the community and further crypto adoption and accessibility.”
Recently, in a blog post, Binance had shared that the common problem that exiting DEXs face is in the form of difficulty in attracting the users which is due to less intuitive user experience, speed, and liquidity issues.
But Binance is all set to tackle this issue of reaching a wider user base head-on as they are in a “unique position” to run a secure exchange platform that processes billions of attractions with speed as it’s all about “replicating” the success of its market-leading centralized exchange into the decentralized realm.
No doubt, Binance is best suited for this challenge. Even despite the demand from the users, existing DEXs haven’t been able to live up to their expectations, however, Binance DEX is hitting just the ‘pain point’ of the users by offering this community initiative with low trading fees, user-friendly, and a safe and secure platform. Apart from near-instant transactions finality with an order matching engine, it allows its users to hold their own keys.
