BTC/USD pair represents a cryptocurrency/USD derivative instrument that can be accessed for trading
Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency and a digital payment system invented by an unknown programmer, or a group of programmers, under the name Satoshi Nakamoto.It was released as open-source software in 2009.The system is peer-to-peer, and transactions take place between users directly, without an intermediary. These transactions are verified by network nodes and recorded in a public distributed ledger called a blockchain. Since the system works without a central repository or single administrator, bitcoin is called the first decentralized digital currency.Besides being created as a reward for mining, bitcoin can be exchanged for other currencies, products, and services in legal or black markets.As of February 2015, over 100,000 merchants and vendors accepted bitcoin as payment. According to research produced by Cambridge University in 2017, there are 2.9 to 5.8 million unique users using a cryptocurrency wallet, most of them using bitcoin.
ETH/USD pair represents a cryptocurrency/USD derivative instrument that can be accessed for trading.
Ethereum (ETH) is an open-source, public, blockchain-based distributed computing platform featuring smart contract (scripting) functionality, which facilitates online contractual agreements. Ethereum also provides a cryptocurrency token called "ether", which can be transferred between accounts and used to compensate participant nodes for computations performed. "Gas", an internal transaction pricing mechanism, is used to mitigate spamand allocate resources on the network.The value token of the Ethereum blockchain is called ether. It is listed under the diminutive ETH and traded on cryptocurrency exchanges. It is also used to pay for transaction fees and computational services on the Ethereum network.
BCH/USD pair represents a cryptocurrency/USD derivative instrument that can be accessed for trading.
As the first software to implement Bitcoin Cash, on-chain scaling is Bitcoin ABC’s raison d’être. Bitcoin ABC is committed to increasing the block size limit for Bitcoin Cash. But on-chain scaling involves more than simply changing one number in the software. There are various technical improvements and optimizations that must be carried out so that the system can handle larger blocks safely and efficiently. Bitcoin ABC stands for “Adjustable Blocksize Cap”, and as the name implies, it is easy for any node operator to adjust their block size limit. We are in favor of raising and eventually removing the block size limit. The miners who use our software, however, want an implementation that will work well for the blocks they produce and accept. This means that the best way we can help raise the block size limit that miners choose is by removing software bottlenecks.
BNB/USD pair represents a cryptocurrency/USD derivative instrument that can be accessed for trading.
From the ICO, Binance issued its own coin called the Binance Coin, with BNB as the symbol. BNB runs natively on Binance chain. The coin was established with a total supply of 200 million. Every quarter, we will destroy BNB based on the trading volume on our crypto-to-crypto platform until we destroy 50% of all the BNB. All transactions will be on the blockchain. We eventually will destroy 100MM BNB, leaving 100MM BNB remaining. The BNB coin itself has multiple forms of utility, essentially being the underlying gas that powers the Binance Ecosystem. The current most prominent use cases include using BNB to: - Pay for trading fees on the exchange, obtaining the equivalent of a 50% discount on trades (during the first year). - Crypto.com has included support for Binance’s BNB token to its platform which includes the MCO Visa Card and mobile app.
UNI/USD pair represents a cryptocurrency/USD derivative instrument that can be accessed for trading.
Uniswap is a decentralized exchange protocol built on the Ethereum blockchain that offers non-custodial trading of ERC-20 tokens. Its first version (Uniswap v1) has been operating since November 2018 (launching at DevCon 4), while the second version (Uniswap v2) launched in May 2020. In Uniswap, users can swap tokens, add tokens to a pool to earn fees, or list a token without trusting any central intermediary. Since all interactions are done directly on-chain and thus cost gas fees, Uniswap has become the most significant gas contributor on the Ethereum public network and became the most widely used decentralized application as of the time of writing. Uniswap is built on a unique system called Automated Market Maker (AMM). At its core, liquidity is created by pools composed of two ERC-20 tokens. As a reward for liquidity provision, parties (Liquidity Providers, or LPs) collect swap fees that are incurred whenever individuals swap tokens. In Uniswap v2, swap fees are set at 0.30% of the notionally traded amount. Collected fees are allocated to the reserve of the pool. Once the protocol switch is turned on, UNI holders will collect 0.05% of each swap, while LPs' reward will decrease to 0.25%. Despite not being the first AMM, Uniswap has popularized the growth of automated market maker protocols, leading to the creation of competing protocols like SushiSwap, which greatly rely on its set of audited open source contracts. UNI is an ERC-20 token on the Ethereum blockchain that offers control over the Uniswap protocol governance, the UNI token community treasury, the protocol fee switch (0.05% of the fee would be collected by UNI token holders if activated), eth ENS, Uniswap default token list (tokens.uniswap.eth), and SOCKS liquidity tokens.

LINK/USD pair represents a cryptocurrency/USD derivative instrument that can be accessed for trading.
Chainlink (LINK) is a decentralized network that provides information (oracles) to smart contracts. Founded in 2017 by Sergey Nazarov and Steve Ellis, Chainlink aims to solve the problem of off-chain information sourcing by smart contracts for their execution parameters. Smart contracts are designed to execute automatically when certain paramenters are met, however, when these parameters exist off-chain there is a reliance on sources of information (known as oracles) to provide the necessary information. Off-chain oracles tend to be centralized and with it comes a reliance on a third party to provide critical information in a trustworthy and time critical manner. ChainLink aims to break this reliance by feeding information to smart contracts via a network of decentralized oracles that work together on the Link blockchain to verify and forward critical information to these contracts. The ChainLink network allows users who have either a data feed or information carrying APIs to easily provide information to smart-contracts in exchange for the LINK token.

MATIC/USD pair represents a cryptocurrency/USD derivative instrument that can be accessed for trading.
Matic Network is a layer-2 scaling solution with side-chains for off-chain computation, while ensuring asset security using the Plasma framework and a decentralized network of Proof-of-Stake (PoS) validators. It aims to offer scalable and instant blockchain transactions. By utilizing adapted version of the Plasma framework, the system is built on PoS checkpoints that are pushed to the Ethereum main-chain. As a result, it is expected to allow each Matic sidechain to theoretically achieve 2^16 transactions per block. Matic Network has been a significant contributor to the Ethereum ecosystem, having worked on implementations of Plasma MVP (Minimum Viable Plasma), the WalletConnect protocol, and Dagger, a popular Ethereum event notification engine. Many projects have already been building applications on and integrating with Matic. MATIC is an ERC-20 token running on Ethereum, it used to pay for services on the Matic Network but also serves as a settlement currency between users who operate within the Matic ecosystem.
