Launched in March 2019, Binance Dex is a decentralized exchange by Binance that runs on its native blockchain known as the Binance chain. The base trading pairs available on it are BNB (Binance Coin), BTCB (Bitcoin) and USD.
In this article, I will be answering three main questions related to Binance Dex and they are:
- How to create an account?
- How to deposit/withdraw & send tokens from your wallet (using Atomic Wallet as an example)?
- How to trade on Binance DEX (using AWC as an example)?
If you are not familiar with AWC (Atomic Wallet Coin) then let me inform you that it is a utility token of Atomic Wallet. There are two kinds of AWC token available in the market, the first one is an ERC-20 token and is being traded on IDEX. The second one is a BEP2 token also known as AWC and is being traded on Binance Dex.
