Binance offers a limited selection of digital assets to buy, sell, and trade, and is not available in every U.S. state. Despite these limitations, Binance.US allows users to buy, sell, trade, convert and stake over 120 popular cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Solana (SOL), and Cardano (ADA).

Users can access the platform via an online dashboard or the exchange’s mobile apps, available for iOS and Android. One of the most attractive features of Binance.US is its low trading fees, with zero-fee Bitcoin (BTC) spot trading available for all traders, with no minimum trading volume requirements. Maker/taker fees range from 0% to 0.01%, and instant buy fees are 0.50%. Users who hold BNC also get a 0.25% trading fee discount.

The platform offers industry-standard security features and requires identity verification to prevent fraud and illegal activities. Users must set up multi-factor authentication and can whitelist crypto wallet addresses.The online dashboard and mobile apps allow users to manage their accounts, view balances, purchase history, deposit and withdraw funds, and buy, sell, and trade crypto.
