In July 2022, to celebrate its fifth anniversary, Binance announced that it would waive fees for 13 Bitcoin trading pairs. As Bitcoin represents a significant portion of the cryptocurrency market, the elimination of trading fees has had a significant impact on Binance’s dominance in spot trading volume.

Despite the downward trend in the cryptocurrency market, Binance is expanding its global reach. Recently, the exchange successfully registered as a Financial Service Provider in New Zealand and has also registered in France, Spain, Italy, South Korea, and Japan.

Analysts believe that this global expansion has brought a significant number of new traders to the exchange, thus enhancing its dominance in trading volume.

Binance’s CEO, Changpeng Zhao, has stated that the exchange’s success can be attributed to its focus on user experience, security, and innovation. As the cryptocurrency market continues to grow, Binance’s position as the world’s leading cryptocurrency exchange seems secure.
