Binance, the leading cryptocurrency exchange, has announced WazirX IEO On Binance Launchpad on January 21, 2020. The WazirX token sale will follow a lottery format, with the recording of user BNB balances already having started at 2020/01/04 00:00 AM (UTC).
Binance will record user BNB balances for 30 days from 2020/01/04 00:00 AM (UTC) to 2020/02/03 00:00 AM (UTC). The final BNB holding amount for each user will be determined as the average of the 30 days. The lottery is already happening in full swing because Binance started recording them on January 4, and the balance recording will continue till February 3. However, Binance explains that they determine the average BNB holding amount for each user from the 30-day average, which they previously announced in 2019.
In short, “Total Daily Average BNB Balance = Daily Average Spot Account Balance + Daily Average Margin Account Balance + Daily Average Sub-accounts Balance + Daily Average Binance Lending Account Balance + Daily Average Binance Futures Account Balance+ Daily Average Binance Fiat Account Balance.”
WazirX is the Indian based cryptocurrency exchange with an advanced trading interface and features to buy, sell and trade cryptocurrencies. It is an exchange with a Live Open Order Book system that allows users to trade 80+ digital assets like Bitcoin, BNB, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin, Dash and many more. WRX, the native token of WazirX, is the utility token forming the backbone of the WazirX ecosystem. The WRX token is built on Binance Chain with future use cases including trading fee discounts, WRX trade mining (unlock and earn WRX tokens by performing trades), paying for margin fees, and more, where users can deposit/withdraw cryptocurrencies and also cash in/cash out USDT through Peer-to-Peer (“P2P”) to Indian Rupees (“INR”) with ease and speed, as well as securely store one’s digital assets in the WazirX wallet.
However, the exchange is acquired by Binance in November 2019.
Changpeng Zhao (CZ), the CEO of Binance, commented:
“The young demographic in India gives an edge to adapt and build on new financial technologies, and I believe this will play a vital role in making India a global blockchain innovation center to also spur cryptocurrency adoption throughout the larger public in the country.”
When Binance moved to India enabled Indians to directly purchase and sell cryptos using fiat currency, rupees (INR) through its fiat gateway, Wei Zhou, the CFO of Binance, said:
“Building fiat-to-crypto bridges remain a key mission for Binance.”
