How to buy Binance Coin in South Korea
Is BNB a good investment in South Korea?
Binance Coin (BNB) was introduced and launched in July 2017 at the initial coin launch event. At the time of launch, each coin was sold for 15 cents. Binance was able to raise a total of around $15 million from this ICO. The value of Binance's native coin, BNB, has increased significantly over time as a result of the company's explosive growth in the cryptocurrency sector.
The price of BNB cryptocurrency in US dollars increased gradually at first, staying below $50 between 2017 and the beginning of 2021. BNB tokens’ high price record reached $24.71 (in January 2018) during the 2017 to 2018 crypto market bull run. Later, in May 2021, the entire cryptocurrency market experienced a significant uptrend, with some cryptocurrencies setting new all-time highs. As a result, on May 10, 2021, the price of BNB increased from under $50 to an all-time high of $690.93, a 460520 percent rise from its price at the time of the ICO. Additionally, BNB was valued at over $100 billion at the time. By the start of 2023, BNB has been trading between about $245 to $310. Some crypto experts believe that BNB has an outstanding potential to reach new heights. They predicted that it could reach about $1,047 by 2025. In spite of all that, this information is not aiming to act as a buying signal or a financial advice. We encourage you to do your research regarding the crypto market movements and even consulting with a professional before attempting to invest in cryptocurrency.
What is Binance Coin ?
Binance Coin (BNB) is a cryptocurrency that can be used for trading and payment on the Binance platform.

Also, this digital currency is well protected from theft and has low costs due to its initial creation in the Ethereum network.
