Binance, the #1 spot cryptocurrency exchange in the world with USD 0.5-1 billion of daily trading volume, will launch the Binance decentralized exchange (DEX) in early 2019.

A video preview and the launch of its own blockchain has seen a major rally for its native token, BNB, with its market cap increasing USD 150 million, rocketing it to #13 on CoinMarketCap with a market cap of USD 800 million. This is likely because speculators expect that Binance DEX users will be buying up BNB in order to pay for trading fees and voting on the Binance DEX.

The Binance DEX will allow users to completely control their crypto assets in their own wallets, issue new assets, suggest trading pairs which will be voted on by the community and potentially added to the DEX, and trade for any cryptocurrency on the Binance DEX without having to hand over any identification information.

Its own blockchain, the Binance Chain, will be the backbone of the Binance DEX and all trades on the exchange will be recorded on the blockchain. It appears the Binance Chain has an extremely fast block time of 1 second or less, facilitating instant confirmation of trades. Binance Token (BNB) will be the native cryptocurrency of the Binance Chain and the Binance DEX, and will be used to pay trading fees.

Aside from issuing tokens, trading cryptocurrencies, and proposing new trading pairs, users on the Binance DEX will be able to send and receive tokens peer to peer, burn tokens, and freeze tokens. Binance DEX will be community run, and is intrinsically decentralized since it runs off of the Binance Chain. At this time, based on the video, it appears no know your customer (KYC) information is needed to create an account, preserving the anonymity of users.

The developer in the video says new features will be added to Binance DEX before launch. The true degree of decentralization and anonymity of the Binance DEX will only be known once it launches.
