Binance USD BUSD


Everyone who is familiar with cryptocurrency, in one way or another encountered one of the giants of cryptocurrency platforms - Binance. Today we will talk about BinanceUSD currency and tell what it can be used for.


BUSD, or BinanceUSD, is a stable coin issued by Binance in partnership with Paxos and pegged to the U.S. dollar at a 1:1 ratio. BUSD was originally issued on the Ethereum blockchain by Paxos. The principle is that Binance creates a Binance-Peg BUSD equivalent to the amount held in reserve in the smart contract, while locking the ERC-20 BUSD source code into the smart contract on the Ethereum blockchain. Binance-Peg BUSD is native to the BNB chain.


Binance USD was launched on September 5, 2019 and is designed to combine the stability of the dollar with blockchain technology. As a secured dollar, it is approved and regulated by the New York City Department of Financial Services.


A Binance spokesperson said that "the process for maintaining support ... has not always been flawless," but "has been greatly improved with enhanced mismatch checking" and BUSD now ranks 3rd in market capitalization behind USDT and USDC.
