Three of the biggest exchanges recently announced their new offerings

Binance gave a sneak peek of the Binance DEX. Huobi is about to deliver a Derivative Platform. And OKEx introduced its Perpetual Swaps.

The Binance DEX

User funds on the DEX will be secured with decentralized wallet application like Trust Wallet, which has a server-free infrastructure that stores private keys only on the user’s device…

Binance Statement

On 4 December Binance gave a video demonstration of the new Binance DEX. The DEX is a decentralized cryptocurrency exchange. The preview exhibited its interface, which has the same feel as the current Binance layout. It has a decentralized wallet that is fully under user control. It is also equipped with the Binance Block Explorer. Users can view their balances, the order book, and trade and order history.

According to Changpeng Zhao, better known as CZ, users will have an option to choose between a centralized or a decentralized exchange.

When transacting through Binance DEX gas tokens will be in BNB, the exchange’s very own ERC-20 token.

The Huobi Derivative Market

On the 28 November Huobi announced the launch of the Huobi Derivative Market (Huobi DM). The platform lets users participate in derivatives trading based on the cryptocurrency market trajectory. It is integrated with instruments made for hedging and risk managem

Huobi DM is not ready for the Hong Kong, Israel, Malaysia, and US markets. It is in beta testing.

OKEx Perpetual Swaps

I think it’s a great product because traders want high leverage… You can hold onto a position as long as you want…

Thomas TSe, OKEx Head Quantitative Strategist

On 3 December OKEx introduced their new derivatives product, the Perpetual Swaps which is said to hold as much as 100x leverage from betting for or against the price changes of the market.

The exchange’s swaps do not expire, so a speculator can take his time before making the decision to buy an asset at which the seller holds to sell.

Settlements from the swaps are done daily with a small transaction fee.

Perpetual Swaps was first brought to the market by BitMEX.

Ethereum and Binance Coin to Lead Next Major Rally as Altcoin Season Looks to Prevail

Bitcoin has been outperforming most cryptocurrencies throughout this whole year. Bitcoin’s total market capitalization dominance has been increasing dramatically since January 2018 when it was only at around 30%. Bitcoin reached 50% dominance in January of 2019 and almost broke above 73% only 2 months ago. There has been a lot of discussions about when will altcoins take over or if they will take over at all. Currently, the market seems to be simply following Bitcoin’s steps but what would it take for altcoins to finally get away from Bitcoin? The main reason Bitcoin is so dominant is the fact that it holds most of the cryptocurrency pairs and fiat pairs. A new investor that wants to buy a new cryptocurrency will need to first buy Bitcoin or one of the few major cryptocurrencies in order to exchange it for the one he wants. What are Market Pundits Saying? It does seem that in the past few months, some of the larger cap coins have been exceeding Bitcoin’s performance, BNB has been a clear example throughout the whole year but has slowed down significantly. A crypto pundit Gautam Chhugani tweeted recently about his unpopular opinion of how altcoins will lead the next rally and Bitcoin will simply follow. Unpopular call: Alts will show Bitcoin the way this time. ETH, BNB will lead the rally. Bitcoin will follow. This tweet really started to gain traction when Changpeng Zhao, CEO of Binance, responded with: Popular with me. pic.twitter.com/XnIvE9Wmc6 — CZ Binance (@cz_binance) November 17, 2019 Now, this isn’t necessarily a very objective view as CZ wants altcoins to thrive because of BNB, however, other analysts have also mentioned the possibility of a new altcoin season. CryptoBitLord, a cryptocurrency trader, has said in the past that he believes the bottom for altcoins is in and this is the time to ‘go all in’ if you are into it for the long term prospect. Blockchain advisor and crypto trader, Rand has said something quite similar as well, Inference The sentiment does seem to be positive about altcoins, however, Bitcoin’s dominance is still really high even after losing 4% in the past month. Altcoins still need to prove a lot and it will be puzzling, especially with Bitcoin’s halving coming up soon. Either way, a bull run will avail everyone, altcoins, and Bitcoin.
