Our Rating:


Problem that it solves

BNB solves the problem for exchanges that want to encourage users to return to their platform. Users receive 50% off their trade fees when using the BNB token.


Customers of BNB coin will be those who buy, sell, or trade digital currencies on the Binance platform.

Value creation

Users can perform transactions on the Binance platform and only pay half price for fees when using BNB. However, these transactions are only available on the Binance platform and will not translate to other exchanges.

Market structure

BNB's market composition is made up of users who want to learn about buying, selling, and trading digital coins, which is a concentrated market. However, this market is also concentrated to those who use Binance for their digital currency needs.

Market size

The market for BNB is currently limited to users on the Binance ecosystem.

Regulatory risks

There is a chance that exchange tokens could be classified as securities. Until today, however, no such classification has been put in place.

Competitive Advantage

Technology/blockchain platform

Originally built on the Ethereum blockchain, BNB now has its own chain, explorer, and wallet.

Lead time advantage

While Binance was one of the earliest exchanges to have its own token, many exchanges are now following suit, which has evaporated much of the advantage that it one enjoyed.

Management Team

Entrepreneurial Team

Binance Coin has an excellent leadership and entrepreneurial team leading the way.

Industry/technical experience

With Changpeng Zhao and Roger Wang, Binance definitely meets the '10,000 hours' of experience in the industry.


Integrity is a mixed-bag for Binance Coin. On the plus side, the exchange is one of the most popular and well-known options in the world of digital assets. That doesn't happen without some amount of honesty and transparency. However, there have been accusations of Binance 'skimming' off the top of listing fee donations, which puts Binance in a bad light.
