Binance Marketplace: The New Super App to Spend Your Crypto

Mục lục

While cryptocurrencies have seen both incredible gains in their prices and use cases in recent years, a big hurdle in the way of mass adoption remains the inability or difficulty associated with keeping and spending them with the same ease as traditional fiat currencies, whether it’s cash, credit cards or online shopping.

Sure, some big retailers and online merchants now accept certain cryptocurrencies, but there are usually restrictions on buying and selling in crypto and that one all-encompassing killer app still remains missing.

Enter Binance Marketplace, which the world’s largest exchange labels as the “Crypto Super App.”
