binance logo

Even if you’re a complete crypto newcomer, we bet you’ve probably heard of it at least once or have seen this cute logo

For those of you who are completely unfamiliar with how the platform operates, we’ve prepared this guide to help you get up to speed shortly.  

How to use Binance

What is Binance Exchange?

Binance is a virtual cryptocurrency trading platform. Created in July 2017, the Binance exchange in a few months found itself on the top of all the ratings, becoming the top-notch trading platform designed specifically for cryptocurrency exchange. 

The main page 

Official site: https://www.binance.com

What does it offer?

A whole variety of different cryptocurrency pairs;

A broad variety of tools for precise market analysis

Extremely convenient, user-friendly interface;

Quite decent commissions for any trading operations

Bank Сard (Visa/Mastercard);

Perfect Money;

Payeer;

Epay;

Okay pay.

Binance has its own chain, called Binance Smart Chain (BEP-20)

Also, the platform is famous for its future derivatives and P2P exchanges. Besides everything mentioned above, Binance also has its own debit card on the table, so if you’re willing to use crypto in order to pay for goods and services, you can order it.

What is Binance Earn?

Basically, Binance Earn – is a way for you to earn coins while you sleep, hit the gym, sit on a couch, write Instagram posts, etc. All that is required from you – is to put your coins on the account and hold them for a while.

Binance Earn

What exactly does Binance Earn offer? First of all, good old coin staking: fixed staking, Ethereum Staking, and of course, DeFi Staking

Even if you don’t have enough ETH to become a validator for the updated ETH network – our suggestion is to simply earn ETH 2.0 tokens on Binance, for there’s a specific option for that. Also, there’s no need to buy Ethereum cryptocurrency for fiat money, since Ethereum 1.0 mining is already available on the Binance Pool. 

Rejoice, all ASICs and GPU-rigs owners – now each one of you can earn ETH on the exchange service and immediately transfer them to ETH 2.0 Staking! How cool is that!

Binance Battle

Gamblers can channel their inner Nostradamus and try to win against other traders on the Binance Battle, in a fun one-minute session. Basically, it all comes down to testing your “prediction” skills, by placing a bet on a either LONG or SHOT option. If you’re confident about your technical analysis, you might consider trying – if you’re correct, you’re gonna hit the jackpot!

Binance Crypto Loans

Having one of the top cryptocurrencies on the exchange deposit, you can get a crypto loan, choosing among over 40+ different coins, including DOGE and BTC

The following are accepted as collateral:

BTC;
ADA;
BNB;
DAI;
DOT;
LINK;
UNI;

USDC;
USDT;
BCH;
ETH;
XRP;
EOS;
LTC;

And recently even EUR (fiat money) was added!

The updated Binance platform provides traders with great trading opportunities and is well worth registering on.

BINANCE REGISTRATION

Registration is done by clicking the corresponding button on the main page of the official website. 

Next thing you know – the registration window will pop up and then you have two following options:

Registration through Email.

By Mobile phone.

Choose the option better suitable for you, and try to come up with a password a little bit more sophisticated rather than 1234. 

Once the form is filled up, the special number will be immediately sent to one of your channels (depending on which you’ve chosen previously) and then you put it in a verification window, and then you’re good. 

Once the registration is done, Binance will inform you that from now on you can replenish your deposit with fiat money (so later you could trade using it, buy crypto, etc), also some additional ways to secure the safety of your account – such as two-factor authentication –  will be offered as well (we recommend you to proceed with all of ‘em).

Binance Login

Once the registration is completed, open your account and this Binance Login window will pop-up. 

Binance Login

Binance Login – is a window that will greet you anytime, once you log-off and want to get into your Binance Exchange account again. Simply type in your Password + either Email or Mobile Phone number + 2FA (if enabled) and you’re good.

Security window. 

Here you can set up 2FA

Address Management

This option allows you to save and record notes for each of your withdrawal addresses.

Device Management

This tab shows devices that are currently allowed to access your account

How to properly verify your account on Binance

ID verification is not required, in case you’re not planning to start a billionaire crypto-trader career (for regular, unverified accounts, the maximum withdrawal amount is equivalent to 2 BTC per day. You’ll be good if you’re not a whale). 

Although right after you go through the procedure, your limit will be immediately raised to 100 BTC per day, so you might wanna consider this. 

How long does Binance verification take?

Well, in my case, Binance verification took around 1 week, but about a month ago Binance updated their terms regarding Binance verification procedure. 

Therefore, at the moment when this article is written, Advanced Verification (L2) can take up to 15 business days.

Hopefully, that answers your question of “how long does Binance verification take”

How to fund your account on Binance

Moving on to the next point, how to fund your Binance personal account. 

First of all:

How to purchase cryptocurrency on Binance using VISA MasterCard.

Just hover the mouse on the “Buy Crypto” tab and then select “Card Deposit”. Then you’ll be redirected to this page when you only need to select the desired currency and the payment method.

In order to deposit money on the exchange, in the “Wallet” tab, click on the “Fiat and Spot wallet” ​​and go to the list of cryptocurrencies available for replenishment.

For convenience, the wallet section is divided into two parts: your FIAT BALANCE and your CRYPTO BALANCE

Fiat and Spot window. For the sake of confidentiality, the current balance is hidden

Then you select the coin you are interested in, click on the “Deposit” button and then, after you see this window, simply click on the “Get Address” button.

If you already have virtual money in your personal wallet or deposited on another exchange, you can transfer it to your Binance wallet. 

By submitting assets to Binance, you fund your spot wallet. Each verified user, in addition to the standard exchange deposit, is provided with wallets for:

Margin trading;

Futures transactions;

P2P exchange;

Perpetual and fixed savings;

Mining Bitcoin cryptocurrency on the Binance pool.

The Binance Exchange platform has forever entered the history of the crypto industry as the first exchange service to launch its own mining pool. 

As of 12/25/2020, 4 coins are mined here: BTC, BCH, BSV, ETH. 

Payments are made daily to your pool account, you can immediately transfer the earned money to a spot wallet for free or activate staking.

The exchange supports the staking of more than 23 coins, including NEO, EOS, and TRON. The complete list is available in the corresponding section of your account.

Binance DeFi Staking

Staking is mining coins by simply holding them in a separate account, sort of “lending” your coins to the liquidity pool, so you can receive new coins every time a new transaction happens. Of course, if you withdraw your coins before the end of the agreed term (at least 1 month) (at least 1 month), you won’t receive any reward from the administration whatsoever. 

The Binance exchange accepts money for safekeeping at interest. For stable coins (BUSD, USDT) and BTC, there’s a special unlimited subscription. 

It’s important to note that if you put the money at interest to Binance – they’re not blocked, and you can use it whenever you want. Also for the whole “holding” period (when the coins or fiat money are being held on the deposit), you will be charged a certain percentage per annum.

Fixed savings means you put your money “on hold” (basically “freezing”) for a certain amount of time, usually on duration from a week and up to three months. It’s very similar to staking, except you’ll be paid by Binance, rather than developers. 

How to withdraw from Binance

Easy-peasy!

Choose the cryptocurrency you’d like to withdraw.

Go to the “withdrawal” section by simply clicking on the “Withdraw” button.

Then indicate the exact amount and address to which you want your funds to be withdrawn.

After approving the transaction, go through the simple confirmation process (via email) or SMS or, in case you have two-factor authentication, both

This confirmation option is very secure, but for some people may seem quite inconvenient. However, let everyone decide for themselves. Enter the verification and once you click “submit” you’re good – withdrawal completed. 

If you wanna check out the actual progress of processing your withdrawal, simply click on the history transaction button.

Service commission for processing transactions

The Binance exchange has set a flat trading commission of 0.1% on each transaction. The tariff is one of the lowest among all crypto exchanges. 

Important: Those traders who pay commissions with BNB tokens (the native token of the Binance exchange), receive a 25% discount.

Bitcoin 0.001%;

Ethereum 0.01%;

Ripple 0.25%;

This allows Binance to be called a marketplace with minimal trading fees.

Binance Coin 

Binance Coin is the internal token of the Binance ecosystem. The digital asset can be used to pay commissions and make online payments. 

Binance Coin (a.k.a. BNB) is accepted at merchants using Pundi X’s XPOS device and Monetha merchants.

Binance Coin. 

Native token of the Binance Exchange

Binance Coin is backed by the Crypto.com and NOWPayments payment networks. With Binance Coin, you can book hotel rooms and hire freelancers all over the world. 
The exchange also released its own BUSD stablecoin and its own chain, called Binance Smart Chain (BEP-20). Thus customers besides issuing Wrapped tokens of ETC & other Alts for a quick exchange with a minimum fee, can also invest in the decentralized (DeFi) sector or participate in different blockchain referendums.

How to trade on Binance Exchange

First, you want to hover the mouse over the “Trade” button and select the operating mode:

CONVERT. Simple as that. Conversion from one currency to another, as the name suggests.

CLASSIC. Mode with a simple and easy-to0use interface.

ADVANCED. Full access to all trading tools

MARGIN Increase your profits with leverage

P2P. Transactions are made directly with other traders.

STOCK TOKEN. Here you can trade stocks with crypto

Alrighty, before you dive into the world of crypto trading, first you need to choose your trading pair. The good news is almost all the active tokens are available on Binance, including the following:

Binance coin (BNB);

Bitcoin (BTC);

Ethereum (ETH);

Ripple (XRP);

Stablecoins (USDT, USDC, BUSD, PAX) and Fiat currencies (USD, EUR, RUB, etc).

Once you make up your mind on what currency you choose and what market you wanna step into, you will see detailed data on prices, the volumes & other significant info that might interest you, especially if you’re a trader.

If you consider yourself a rookie in this crypto trading world and wish to, let’s say, sell a couple of BUSD for Fiat, you can simply use the Market order. 

Market orders mean they are executed right away at the current “Market” price, once you click on the “Sell” button.

The CONVERT, CLASSIC and ADVANCED modes have an extremely user-friendly interface, so even for a crypto rookie it won’t take a lot of time to figure out “what’s what”. 

Once you click on the P2P button, you’ll be redirected to a list of real living and breathing traders who can either sell or buy crypto. Thus all you need to do – is simply select a desirable currency, select an option (“buy/sell”) and choose a trader to proceed with the transaction. 

The main trading (including leverage), exists in the forms of ADVANCED, CLASSIC, and CONVERT modes.

Feel you’re ready for crypto trading? Here you go.

First of all, we’re gonna briefly explain what this “CONVERT” option is used for and after you’ll realize why it’s called “the easiest way to trade”. 

Let’s say, you got some ETH in your crypto balance and you’d like to exchange it for some BUSD (i.e. to SELL it FOR BUSD), but you wanna do it without appealing to P2P trading mode since you need to do it very quickly. 

That’s when the CONVERT button comes in! 

Hover your mouse over the Trade button.Select the “CONVERT” section from the drop-down menu.

Convert Trading Mode

See this cute window with only two available options, that say “from” and “to”? Yeah, you got that – it’s as simple as that. Just select the coin you have in the “from” bar (and enter the desired amount) and the coin you want your token to be converted to in the “to” bar, aaaaand… congrats, you’re done.

Classic Mode

Again, just hover your mouse over the Trade button, though this time you click on the “CLASSIC”. 

Classic Trading Mode

Next thing you see – a big, frightening, multiple columns type of window will try to scare you away. Do not be scared, for we’re gonna help you out. 

To create a Market Order, go to the “Market” tab, which is placed right in the middle between the “LIMIT” and “STOP-LIMIT” buttons. 

Then put the amount you need and then click on either buy/sell button down there. 

Buy/Sell – simple as that

Keep in mind that Market orders mean you buy or sell according to the current, “Market” price, therefore all such orders will be executed immediately, without delay. 

In case you wanna be a little strategic-wise, you can try “Limit” orders (they’re right there, next to “Market”). 

All the above steps are the same, except here you’re indicating the price at which you’re willing to buy/sell the coin, i.e. meaning completing orders at more favorable prices than the current one

Also, limit orders work in your favor in terms of time, since you don’t have to constantly check out the price every 10 seconds – right after the current price matches the one you’ve indicated previously, the order will be executed automatically.

Let’s say you have an assumption that some cryptocurrency will become cheaper, then you need to create an application for the purchase at a price below the market price. 

When you see signs of an imminent rise in quotes, create an order to sell at a price higher than the current one. When the marks you specified are reached, the applications will be fulfilled and you will receive money for a deposit.
To use Binance stops, go to the Stop-limit tab, there are three columns in this order form:

Stop-limit orders

Stop – determines the prices upon reaching which the order will be brought to the auction;

Limit – the selling/buying price of the coin;

Amount – the amount of the sold or bought cryptocurrency;Total – how much you will receive (give) in total.

Advanced mode

We suggest using this mode only once you feel confident enough to take your crypto-trading game to the next level and want to do some deep tech analysis. 

We’re not gonna dive deep into that section, since this article is meant for newcomers, and if you’re an experienced trader, it’s safe to say you already know everything you need without our assistance. 

Advanced Trading Mode. Quite scary, ain’t it?

Margin Trading is the use of leveraged funds to conduct transactions in digital assets. A year ago, this type of trading on crypto exchanges was extremely rare, now quite a few sites support trading with leverage.

Margin Trading Mode

To open a margin trading account on Binance, you will need to complete a Know Your Customer check (KYC) and enable 2FA. Once activated, transfer money from your Binance Spot Wallet to your margin trading wallet.

You will now be able to use these coins as collateral for borrowing funds. The balance of your margin wallet determines the number of funds you can borrow following a flat rate of 5: 1 (5x). For example, if you have 1 BTC, you can borrow 4 more.

To borrow money:

Select a borrowed asset;

Indicate the amount;

Approve the transaction.

Keep in mind that money is lent in growth and the interest rate is updated every hour. You can see the available pairs, as well as their rates, on the margin commission page. You can check the current status of the margin account in the “Margin” tab of your deposit.

The level of risk changes depending on the movement of the market, if prices move against your forecast, your assets may be liquidated. In the event of liquidation, additional fees will be charged to the trader.

P2P

On a P2P site, users trade with each other (i.e. without the participation of an exchange that only organizes trade), basically providing customers with a platform for publishing their offers.

P2P Trading Mode

The online escrow service guarantees the security and timely delivery of the digital asset. To work on P2P, you need to go through KYC and set up a payment method in your account settings. Then you find a suitable offer, and if there isn’t one, you publish yours and wait for a client.

Derivatives

Those are derivatives of financial instruments based on some other exchange-traded asset, including cryptocurrency. A derivative is worth nothing by itself, its price depends entirely on the value of the underlying asset. The Binance platform supports the following derivatives.

USDS-M Futures window

Perpetual Futures 

Perpetual futures do not have a specific closing date. Trades are concluded based on the underlying asset value index, which is derived based on the average cryptocurrency price and sales volume. Therefore, the value of perpetual futures is often comparable to the market value of a cryptocurrency.

Quarterly Futures

The name Quarterly Futures speaks for itself. The contract is always closed after the specified period. For example, on Binance Futures, these futures are executed on the last Friday of the third month.Leveraged Tokens

Leveraged Tokens

Binance Leveraged Tokens (BLVTs) are another tradable asset on the Binance spot market. Each BLVT represents a basket of open positions on the perpetual futures market. They allow the trader to operate without collateral and margin support without worrying about liquidation risk.
The Binance spot market offers BTCUP USDT and BTCDOWNUSDT pairs. BTCDOWN aims to generate leveraged gains when the price of Bitcoin goes down, while BTCUP works exactly the opposite. These leveraged gains amount to between 1.25x and 4x. You can use a leveraged token based on the net worth with a daily limit of 1000 tokens per account.

If you go to the crypto exchange to work, we recommend downloading the Binance PC Client desktop application.
