What is Binance Coin?

Binance Coin is a cryptocurrency that is exclusive on the Binance exchange, which is one of the fastest growing exchanges in the cryptocurrency market.

The currency is used to pay posting expenses, transaction fees, exchange charges and others on the trading platform. BNB tokens are used in Binance as a way to reduce fees. The coins can also be traded on Binance for other coins.
