Binance Unveils Decentralized Exchange Amid Doubts Over Ethos

‘A Big Step’

Introducing a video walkthrough of the exchange, CEO Changpeng Zhao said developers were “very aggressively” on getting a usable product to market.

The DEX demo is the first major event on the timeline of the Binance Chain project, the public Blockchain, which the exchange formally announced in May.

“As a public blockchain, Binance Chain will mainly focus on the transfer and trading of blockchain assets, as well as provide new possibilities for the future flow of blockchain assets,” a blog post issued at the time reads.

Binance Chain will focus on performance, ease-of-use, and liquidity. Binance Coin (BNB) will be upgraded to exist on its own blockchain mainnet, becoming a native coin. At the same time, Binance will transition from being a company to a community.

Zhao described the demo as a “small step” for Binance Chain but a “big step” for Binance itself.

No Release Deadline

“I thought this would happen one to two months later or more, but the team delivered early,” he commented in the video. “It is very much still in early pre-stage development, so this is a casual early pre-alpha demo.”

Developers then created a mock-up token, issued it on the Blockchain, sold and created a buy order for it. A release timeframe was not specified. 

In comments on Twitter, Zhao said he foresaw Binance and DEX “coexisting for some time,” but would “let the market decide” as to whether one usurps the other.

Social media reactions also hit a critical note after a user reminded Zhao of Binance’s reported 400 BTC listing tariff, which they argued did not fit in with decentralized principles.
