Is Bitcoin BEP2 a good investment?

Bitcoin BEP2 token is a Binance native asset, which allows for easy-to-use functionalities within the ecosystem. Its price is pegged to Bitcoin, and increases trading volume for Bitcoin trading.
  • Centralisation. This is an important concern with regards to Bitcoin BEP2. The Binance chain, on which BTCB is launched and traded, only allows 11 validators, all of which have been selected by Binance. Due to this single point of failure, if anything were to happen to Binance, the Bitcoin BEP2 token would also be susceptible to vulnerabilities.
  • Competitors. This is not the only tokenised version of Bitcoin. Wrapped Bitcoin which is used on the Binance Smart Chain and RenBTC, which runs on the Ethereum blockchain using the RenVM protocol, are 2 other alternatives.
  • Not the real thing. Given Bitcoin BEP2 is a crypto-pegged token on the Binance Chain, keep in mind you are not buying the asset itself. You are essentially buying a tokenised version of Bitcoin. This means it can only be used for interacting with protocols on Binance and the Binance DEX, but cannot be used in conjunction with the Bitcoin mainnet, or other blockchains. It's also important to remember that when withdrawing Bitcoin from Binance into a personal wallet or another exchange, proper protocol must be used. BEP2 tokens only work within the Binance ecosystem.
  • Intermediate entry barrier. Binance requires an intermediate level of expertise when interacting with its blockchain. Because it allows Bitcoin on its standard trading, when using Bitcoin BEP2 on its DEX, it can overcomplicate a beginner. We recommend having the appropriate level of knowledge before interacting with Bitcoin BEP2 and the Binance DEX.
