Binance DEX is a decentralized stock exchange Binance - current global cryptocurrency market leader. We invite you to familiarize yourself with its main functions and instructions, how to use the p2p exchange (Client-to-client).
What is Binance DEX?
Binance DEX is one of the company's products Binance.
Binance offers the largest and probably the largest the best centralized stock exchange in the world Binance.com.
After purchase, it is best to withdraw your cryptocurrencies on the exchange secure wallet, for which we have a private key - according to the principle that cryptocurrencies are yours only if you have a private key to the wallet in which they are located.
In the case of a centralized exchange, the keys to the wallet are held exchange, not us. In the event of a possible hack or collapse of the stock exchange, we may lose our funds.
Binance also has other centralized exchanges. An example could be Binance Jersey, Binance Uganda, Binance Singapore - local cryptocurrency exchange issues enabling the purchase of bitcoin and altcoins using local fiat currencies such as the British pound, dollar or euro.
Binance DEX is Binance Decentralized EXchange, i.e. decentralized exchange.
If you want to buy a cryptocurrency from another investor, you use your own portfolio, not a portfolio on the stock exchange account, as in the centralized version.
In the assumption we transfer funds almost directly to the person from whom we buy cryptocurrency.
The cryptocurrency we purchased goes to us directly from the investor's portfolio, from which we buy it.
Cryptocurrencies are not stored on the stock exchange account, but on our portfolioto which we have the private key.
In this model the exchange only acts as an intermediary connecting the buyer with the seller at a market price they both agree to.
Binance DEX - how to create an account?
Binance DEX located at Binance.org
The top left corner of the page is displayed the server we use. When we expand this tab, we will see a list of currently available servers, their addresses and current load. Servers that work best for us currently will be displayed in green. Next to it you will see information about the delay in communication with the server expressed in milliseconds.
By default, the most appropriate server should be chosen for us, so if there are no problems when using the Binance DEX exchange, we don't have to bother with it.
Wanting to trade on Binance DEX we log in with our Binance (BNB) blockchain wallet portfolio, not with login, email and password. If we already have a wallet Binance in the smartphone application or hardware portfolio of the Ledger or Trezor brand, we can go to login. If not, we must create a new wallet.
Binance DEX - how to set up a wallet?
We go to the main page Binance DEX, or binance.org
Click "create wallet" - "Create Wallet"
We will be shown instructions about safety rules, in particular informing that if we lose, forget or give someone a private key to our wallet, we may lose the funds on it or access to them.
Our tokens and coins are in our hands in our portfolio. Unlike the centralized exchange, if you lose your account access (e.g., forget your password) it is not possible to call for help/ exchange service asking for help. Only we have control over our funds. This has many advantages, but as you can see there is some responsibility.
The Binance DEX stock market portfolio offers three types of security:
- file "keystore"Saved on our computer + traditional password; in this configuration we can imagine that instead of entering our login we have to upload the file keystore, and then enter the password that we invented, as when logging in to an email account
- a phrase consisting of 24 words in the correct order; it is also our login and password; using this option, if you want to make a transfer from our wallet, we must enter in random order randomly generated English words;
- private key - a cryptographic security key that can be compared to a very long and complicated password;
Binance requires from all users logging in using a file keystore and passwords. A private key or 24-word phrase provides additional security in the event of loss keystore or forget your password.
Finally, please confirm that we have read and understood the instructions. Click "In Understand"
In the next step, we set a strong password, which must contain at least 8 characters, including a capital letter, number and special character. We read the regulations of the stock exchange and mark the bird next to "I understand ..."
After pressing "Download Keystore File" the file that is our login will be downloaded to our computer. We will use it to log into our wallet and the Binance DEX stock exchange. It's best to keep this file in a safe place. You can also do a backup.
In the next step, a 24-word string will be generated, which is our password to recover the account or log in to the wallet. Write down in a safe place the string of 24 words given there (in the correct order).
We can also preview and save private key to the wallet.
In the next step, we confirm that we have saved our access code. After confirmation, we will be asked to enter selected words from the string. All to check if we have made a mistake.
After entering the desired words correctly, click continue and this completes the creation of a new Binance DEX wallet.
Logging in to the Binance DEX exchange
On the Binance DEX main page, in the upper right corner, click "Connect Wallet".
You can choose to log in to the stock exchange using a mobile wallet in the Binance app, Ledger or Trezor physical wallet. We can also log in with the wallet we just created.
We are uploading your wallet login fileUpload keystore file"And below is the password for the wallet.
If we do not have the Keystore file or have forgotten the password for it, we choose Recovery Phrase. We provide the 24-word account recovery code in the correct order.
