Binance Institutional offers an array of utilities, constituting the Binance Broker Program to leverage Binance technology for business growth, over-the-counter services, including algorithm-based trading, and other asset management services.

Binance made the announcement via Twitter: "#Binance is launching #BinanceInstitutional, a new flagship platform for VIP and institutional users, in an effort to upgrade its institutional offerings and services."

Why It’s Important: The news comes amidst extremely uncertain market conditions. Bitcoin BTC/USD has fallen from its all-time high of over $68,000 to currently $20,971. Consequently, numerous firms and exchanges have faced structural and technical difficulties, margin calls, and illiquidity. This has caused a major cutback of expenditures by firms.

Major crypto firms, such as Coinbase, Gemini and Crypto.com, have announced large-scale layoffs and reductions in advertisement budgets. Binance, however, has made a series of bold moves prior to launching Binance Institutional:

  • It's looking to fill 2,000 new positions
  • It nullified trading fees for Binance.US
  • Inked a multi-year partnership with Cristiano Ronaldo

Each effort represents strong capital reserves and preparedness for a market downturn. As macroeconomic uncertainty perpetuates Bitcoin’s bear market, Binance continues to stride forward with power.
