What more?

They belong to the rare class of platforms that became popular faster than others.

One special thing about Binance is that their teams are caring and work night and day to give their users a better experience.

Why Binance?

If we should talk about it, Binance really has some uniqueness

It is not trash, just the title it earned as the world’s largest trading platform alone is enough to show how special they are.

With over 600 cryptocurrencies available for trading and a daily trading volume of $76 Billion, they have you covered on what you need.

They offer one of the most broad ranges of making money on their platform.

You can make more through an extension they created – Binance earn.

Some of these options include:

  • Staking whereby you borrow Binance your money for a specified time frame and you are paid interest throughout the period.

And many others.


We cannot do without mentioning NFT whenever the wisdom of crypto is discussed.

Non-fungible-token (NFT) is really a source of wonderment, it even amazes me than the way crypto tokens do

Their prices are not the same, they are different and unique meaning 1 NFT does not have the same value as another unlike Bitcoin where 1BTC is equivalent to another BTC.

Binance specially created a marketplace for NFTs where you can buy and sell them.

They even  created a set of terms & conditions to ensure users not only have a good experience but that law and order is still maintained.

Added Features

Also in terms of added features, Binance still leads with its many extensions.

Some of these include;

Binance Futures and margin trading

Binance offers crypto futures contracts that are settled and collateralized in their based cryptocurrency; these contracts are also known as COIN-margined contracts.

For example,  investors can trade Bitcoin-margined contracts, which allows them to earn Bitcoin when their futures position returns a profit.

This is excellent if you are a long-term investor. Investors are more likely to hang on to their cryptocurrencies, especially in the current bull market. Profits from futures contracts may be added to your long-term stack since they are settled in the underlying coin.

Binance p2p, trade at your preferred prices

Peer-to-peer exchanges bring users freedom to trade crypto at the preferred prices.

On Binance P2P, you can not just buy or sell crypto from the existing offers, but also create your trade advertisements to set your own prices.

Binance smartchain

Binance Chain was launched by Binance in April 2019.

Its primary focus is to facilitate fast, decentralized (or non-custodial) trading.

Binance DEX, one of the friendliest decentralized exchanges out there.

You can use it via a web interface at or through its native integration with Trust Wallet.

And many more!!

Why does Binance need ssn?

If you live in the US or other countries that use SSN (Social security number), then it might be requested of you during the identity verification process.


Just like every other app, Binance wants to protect your privacy and more than other common apps, they want to do it better.

Binance needs you to complete the identity verification process so that they can protect your account and serve you better.

For better understanding, you can picture Binance as a Banking app that needs you to fill in your personal information and agree to their T & C’s (Terms and conditions) before you can be granted access to their service.

This is to make sure that they become aware of the identity of every single user that uses their services.

Also, due to the complains of governments of different countries about the thefts and crimes that users are committing via the app, Binance team have taken action.

So it is absolutely safe to provide your SSN, Binance needs your SSN to know you better serve you better and hence keep you safer.

Set-backs & Benefits

While there are set-backs for those who have not completed their identity verification process, there are also benefits for those who complete their verification on time.

  2. Your withdrawal amount will be very low
  3. You will not be vale to experience the full potential of Binance

  2. Your daily withdrawal limit will be higher
