Binance US Or Coinbase Pro: Which Suits Americans Better?

Published

on

binance us or coinbase pro

As you probably know from the latest Coinbase news this year, the cryptocurrency exchange announced its Coinbase Pro platform earlier this year, along with Binance and the expansion with the American branch called Binance.US. This has put both of the platforms as direct rivals in the market – but is Binance US or Coinbase Pro actually better?

Even though there are several other options too, these exchanges are operated by two of the most recognizable cryptocurrency firms in the space. Both of them have a major US presence now. Below, we are reviewing both of them and showing you whether Binance US or Coinbase Pro is a better option.

Background

Coinbase is a long-established company which was created in 2012 and launched its exchange in 2015. Binance was created in 2017 but is still more dominant than Coinbase – taking it over in many ways.

Trading Volumes

The Binance news today show that even though Binance ranks as the largest exchange in the world, Binance.US is much smaller since it serves only one country. Coinbase, on the other hand, does not report volumes for its non-Pro exchange and handles $100-$200 million of volume per day as details show.

Legitimacy

If you are wondering whether Binance US or Coinbase Pro is more legit, we can safely say that they are on the same level. Even though they were both in the news for some fiascos over the years, Binance and Coinbase are among the most respected firms on the market.

Liquidity

According to CryptoWatch, Binance.US has $4 million of liquidity while Coinbase Pro has $15 million. However, both exchanges seem to have sufficient depth for the amount of activity that they experience.

Fees And Limits

Which is better in terms of fees and limits – Binance US or Coinbase Pro?

Binance.US’ fees start at 0.1% while Coinbase Pro’s fees start at 0.5%. However, both offer fees as low as 0%. The limits on trading are similar too – Binance.US allows withdrawals and deposits of up to $1 million via bank wire and Coinbase Pro allows unlimited deposits and withdrawals to $10,000 per day.

Supported Coins

Binance.US supports 46 trading pairs for 26 coins while Coinbase Pro offers 53 trading pairs for 22 coins.

Now, as you can see, it is difficult to answer the “Binance US or Coinbase Pro” question and make a decision. Perhaps Binance.US is a bit better in terms of its fees, limits and support, but Coinbase Pro is definitely a decent competitor.

Binance CEO Addresses Compliance As Key For Crypto Climate In Japan

Published

binance ceo addresses
The latest cryptocurrency news take us to Japan, where the head of Binance Changpeng Zhao has started discussions regarding a strategic partnership with two Japanese firms. As we can see from the news, the Binance CEO addresses compliance as the key for new strategic partnerships in Japan.A press release on January 17 shows that the head of the exchange has begun negotiations with Z Corporation, a subsidiary of Z Holdings formerly known as Yahoo Japan and TaoTao, a crypto exchange licensed in Japan.Right now, the details of the partnership are still hidden. However, the Binance CEO addresses compliance and said that Z Corporation and TaoTao would "continue discussions and deliberations with Binance and begin preparation to launch trading services for users in Japan."Changpeng Zhao (CZ) spoke to the media about the partnerships and said:
“We are looking forward to our joint efforts with Z Corporation/TaoTao in bringing our services to Japan. Foremost, we want to ensure that we work in full compliance with Japanese laws and regulations where local and global standards function as a key role in establishing sustainable development industry-wide and greater public adoption.”
As Binance CEO addresses compliance, we can see that this comes as a follow up from the January 14 decision by the Financial Services Agency (FSA) which proposed lowering the leverage rate limit of cryptocurrency margin trading from 4x to 2x. The revised versions of the Payment Services Act and the Financial Instruments and Exchange Act, will be enforced in April.The Binance news also show that as per the exchange, all parties in this partnership would work with the agency. The exchange said:
"Through licensing Binance’s cutting-edge technologies, Z Corp and TaoTao will collaborate with the Financial Service Agency to ensure full regulatory compliance in the Japanese market."
Meanwhile, Binance yesterday announced that the exchange will gradually restrict access to residents of Japan. There has not been a clear response as to why this is happening and currently, the Japanese traders still have full access to the platform.While Binance CEO addresses compliance as key in Japan, its move in United States from last September shows that the exchange restricted the residents of the US from accessing Binance.com and instead launched Binance.US in a partnership with BAM Trading Services.

Binance Will Restrict Access To Japan Residents

Published

binance will restrict
A new January 15 announcement is in the focus of the latest Binance news, showing that Binance will restrict access to all residents of Japan at an unspecified later date. The restriction will apparently be implemented gradually and the details are expected to be revealed later, as the announcement read.Right now, there are no restrictions in place and the Japanese users are able to operate the exchange normally. Previously, the Binance exchange was headquartered in Japan after existing China. As we reported in March 2018, the exchange moved the operations to Malta after an official warning by the Japanese regulators because of the lack of a national exchange license.Since then, several exchanges registered with the regulator. The rival Huobi had obtained the license in January 2019, while the Japanese corporation LINE and its BitBox exchange secured it in September.It is now very possible that as Binance will restrict access to the Japanese residents, it encountered similar regulatory difficulties despite not legally resident in the country. As the crypto exchange Kraken ceased to provide services to Japanese residents in April 2018, citing the rising costs of doing business mainly due to the licensing requirements.However, there are not many new updates in this case in the latest cryptonews. What is also worth mentioning is that on January 9th, the digital asset marketplace Binance.US unveiled its mobile app for iOS and Android users after successful beta testing. With it, users can now trade over 25 digital currencies in real-time and track and analyze all the market movements while trading within ACH limits up to $30k, making wire transfers and making debit card payments.While reports show that Binance will restrict access to Japanese users, the app rolled out in the United States has shown big success and impressed the early users. The 4.4 star rating on Google Play and 4.9 star rating on the App Store are a solid proof for that. What's even more interesting is that the exchange said that this new app is just the start for its relatively young US arm. The CEO of BinanceUS Catherine Coley recently spoke about that, and said that "the app launch makes strides towards achieving one of our goals for 2020: to build an everyday product that’s a part of people’s everyday lives."

Binance 2020 Goal: Adding Support For 180 Fiat Currencies

Binance 2020 goal
The Binance 2020 goal is to bring ‘’crypto to the masses’’ and the platform plans to do so by adding support for more than 180 fiat currencies and to enable fiat-to-crypto trading according to the CEO of the platform, Changpeng Zhao as we are about to find out in the following Binance news.Zhao said that Binance has already added support for 19 fiat currencies in the past few months while three more will be added next week. Zhao added that the banks and payment service providers were really cold at the beginning to start providing services to crypto businesses but that is changing:
"We believe fiat will co-exist with crypto for a long time to come. Again, as much as some of the hardcore crypto guys don’t like banks, we believe working with banks and traditional financial institutions is essential to bringing more people into crypto."
He also added that the Binance 2020 goal is to further decentralize the platform including the team, structure, locations, products, operations, and services. Zhao added that the company is considering two major acquisitions which will have a huge impact on the platform:
"We are even drafting a new incentive structure to replace traditional ESOPs [Employee stock ownership], as we resemble more of a community than a company. We call this the ETOP (T for token). We will share this new idea with the world once we work out all the details," Zhao said, adding that they hope to fully open-source Binance Chain, their native blockchain, and Binance DEX, their non-custodial exchange, in 2020.’’
The Binance DEX code is still not open-source as they are waiting for other centralized exchanges to release their decentralized exchanges first. The largest crypto by volume Binance grows more by announcing its new investment plans in the crypto derivatives exchange FTX. Both companies will reportedly join forces that will develop the cryptocurrency ecosystem even further. Binance takes a long-term position in the FTX token so the derivatives exchange returns the favor by helping build the liquidity and the institutional product offerings. Now that Binance invests in FTX, we can see that the exchange is getting more and more strategic recently.
