Binance Is Starting Off With Private Beta TestingSeptember 19, 2018
Binance, which is a crypto-fiat exchange, will be launching its private beta testing.
Changpeng Zhao, CEO of Binance stated that the beta testing for the crypto-fiat exchange that is based on Singapore with headquarters in Japan will be launched on September 18, 2018. He stated, “I just slipped that we will begin #Binance Singapore fiat exchange live money closed beta testing on Sept 18th, in 3 days. Invitation only first. Exciting!”
Intricate details about the testing is not yet revealed. The crypto-fiat exchange is presumed to support the local Singapore Dollar. The testing environment will be an invite only meeting. And a fair expectation is that the Singapore dollar will be available.
While cryptocurrency is not considered to be a legal tender in Singapore, they can operate for as long as they work in compliance with the AML and CFT requirements.
The coming of the Bitcoin banknotes, also known as smart banknotes, “are hardware storage units with a S3D350A chip manufactured by Samsung. What they have in common with banknotes is that they represent one set value and can be physically given as payment at an outlet. In essence, these notes are self-contained wallets with their own private key. Tangem refers to them as “uncopiable cold wallet[s]”.
The publisher also added, “They are available for purchase now in denominations of 0.01 and 0.05 BTC, according to a company press release. At the current price these equal 94 and 469 USD respectively”
Binance that has handled $815 million in trades in the last 24 hours might probably take a stride in the direction of strategies like Bitcoin banknotes with cryptocurrency gaining mainstream acceptance and as well taking several forms of the fiat money like financial derivatives, debit cards, and ATMs.
Considering the numbers of global ICO projects, Singapore is ranked to be the most favorable country for ICOs.
Of note, Malta Stock Exchange’s Fintech and digital asset subsidiary, MSX PLC, and Binance have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) in order to launch a new security token digital exchange.
The plans to launch the fiat exchange for first of all revealed in the recent blockchain event by crypto-assets from Cumberland. The conference featured Tyler Winklevoss, CEO of Gemini yet another disruptor.
It is to be recollected that early in August, Binance LCX, which is a joint venture between Binance and Liechtenstein Cryptoassets Exchange (LCX), declared the launch of crypto-fiat exchange in Liechtenstein. This project was meant to make trading possible between Swiss Francs (CHF) and euros (EUR) versus several other major digital currencies pairs.
At the launch, Adrian Hasler, Prime Minister of Liechtenstein, commented, “We are confident that Liechtenstein’s existing and future legal framework and practice provide a robust foundation for the Binance LCX and other blockchain companies to provide exceptional services here in Liechtenstein.”
Of note, Binance is very active in the cryptocurrency space making several collaborations and launches scheduled in a series.
