“It’s a pleasure for Ocean to be on Binance.”
The token increased initially to $0.69 before getting back to the current value of $0.57 according to CoinGecko. As per the reports, the developers of the Ocean Protocol want to create a way for people but as well as industries, governments, startups and more, to connect and share information at higher levels without compromising the proprietary data. In order to achieve this, OCEAN allows for building data services and marketplaces with the help of its blockchain technology, as McConaghy said:
“Ocean allows people to unlock the value of data without necessarily unlocking the data itself. It is a substrate to finally realize the potential of an open permission-less data economy while still preserving privacy.”
The latest price increase is the example of the “Binance Effect” where the tokens listed on the exchange see their prices rise considerably as the DeFi token YFI surged by 50% after the exchange announced they will be listing it. The Serum token also increased by 1000% after Binance announced they will list it as well. Coinbase on the other hand, another major exchange is also looking to list OCEAN but this is alongside a range of whole other coins. it seems that listing has confused the traders with the similarly named protocol OceanEX which also increased by 35% with no particular reason. This token is the native token of the OceanEX exchange which belongs in the Vechain Thor Blockchain ecosystem.
