What is Binance USD?
Binance USD is a US-dollar-backed stablecoin created to bridge the gap between traditional finance and the world of cryptocurrencies. It is the first of 3 US dollar stablecoins to be approved by the strict New York State Department of Financial Services (NYDFS).
In September 2019, the cryptocurrency was issued in a joint effort from Paxos, a blockchain infrastructure platform, and Binance, the cryptocurrency exchange. The token is pegged 1:1 with the US dollar, with every BUSD issued resulting in the addition of 1 USD being added to Paxos reserve accounts. If a user purchases 1,000 BUSD, 1,000 BUSD will be minted and $1,000 will be added to Paxos reserves. The 1,000 BUSD are then burned when the user sells.
Although built as an ERC-20 token, meaning it was developed for the Ethereum blockchain, it also now transacts across the Binance BEP-2 token system.
Binance USD (BUSD) is the 18th largest cryptocurrency in the world by market cap, valued at $12,708,156,419. The current price of Binance USD is $0.997764, which is -0.623% lower than yesterday. Prices have ranged between $1.01 and $0.984433 over the past 24 hours. All prices are listed in US dollars and accurate as of October 27, 2021 12:10 UTC.

What to consider when buying Binance USDBUSD is an attempt at creating a US-dollar-backed stablecoin, but there are differentiators that set it apart from similar USD stablecoins. Make sure you consider the following before purchasing BUSD:
- Regulation: The token is one of few regulated stablecoins and it complies with all the regulatory framework set out by the NYDFS. This can be seen as both a strength and a restrictive weakness.
- Centralized: Paxos implements a "Set Law Enforcement Role" that can restrict and control accounts that do not comply with NYDFS requirements. In this sense, the BUSD token is not quite decentralized.
- Audits: The token is audited by the NYDFS every month to provide transparency for users.
