Crypto exchange Binance.US has removed trading fees for Bitcoin (BTC) spot market trades, following in the footsteps of Robinhood which pioneered no-commission crypto trading in 2018.
Brian Shroder, CEO of Binance.US said the move makes the company the first U.S. crypto exchange to eliminate spot trading fees for Bitcoin for all users and without trading volume requirements. He added that they would also not be earning a spread on trades.
“We see this as an opportunity to revolutionize the way fees are approached in our industry, increase accessibility to crypto, and better support our market and customers in a time of need.”
3/ We hope our pricing model sees broader industry adoption over time, because that would have a positive impact on the ecosystem and market participants overall. We are happy to lead the race to zero-fees everywhere.
See you on @BinanceUS
