He also stated that the software has no GUI yet. He further states this is a small step for binance chain but a big one for Binance.
In the video posted on twitter, Zhao explained the three essential features of the planned cryptocurrency exchange. The features are; creation, listing, and trading of tokens. However, the CEO didn’t mention the date for launching the exchange. The crypto space still awaits when the exchange will be marketed. Also how much volume it will be able to handle.
Why a Decentralized Exchange?
Research indicates that decentralized exchanges are more secure than those that are centralized which are vulnerable to hacks and other forms of cyber attacks. Decentralized exchange is built in a way that users would retain custody of their tokens through their private keys. This prevents the storage of massive tokens on one server making it a cheap target to hackers.
Binance is expanding its operation after purchasing Trust wallet, an open source, an anonymous and decentralized wallet that supports ethereum and thousands of other ethereum based coins. Zhao stated that Binance will list Trust wallet as a default wallet on its new decentralized exchange.
