Some perceive BNB as a utility token
The Binance coin was initially meant to be used as a utility token in which it could help facilitate transactions on the Binance exchange platform. However, the token is now often referred to as the reason Binance became the world’s largest crypto exchange based on Volume, even before its second anniversary. Now the BNB coin has a high status and can be seen as a utility token as its value increased with the growth of the Binance trading platform.
The eToro company thinks that BNB being a utility token makes for a great addition to their platform as well, as Assia mentioned that:
“As a regulated securities broker, we have the ability to offer both utility and security tokens on our platform. We support the movement of assets onto the Blockchain and the tokenization of securities. In fact, we believe that in the future we will see the greatest transfer of wealth ever, onto the Blockchain.”
The Blockchain technology allows for anyone to be able to create a currency, that has a good idea and some coding skills to be able to distribute the coin or token around the world, without the need for anyone’s permission.
In an Autralian startup called the TravelbyBit is pushing for the currency-side of the tokens by integrating BNB payments with all merchants on its network.
