GURA: Their market cap worldwide is now close to $2.5 trillion, which is almost as large as the GDP of France. Even the big Wall Street banks now trade bitcoin. And Gary Gensler, the head of the Securities and Exchange Commission, shares Warren's concerns. Here's what he said in a recent speech.

Spot trading means you’re not technically “buying” the cryptocurrency, but instead trading your USD for it through either a market or a limit order. A market order means you agree to trade for the currency at the current market price. A limit order lets you put in a designated price at which you want the trade to occur, and when the currency reaches that price, the trade happens automatically. These orders then incur “maker” (for limit orders) or “taker” (for market orders) fees — though on Binance.US, there’s just a standard 0.1% fee.

Cryptocurrencies are often traded in lots – batches of cryptocurrency tokens used to standardise the size of trades. As cryptocurrencies are very volatile, lots tend to be very small: most are just one unit of the base cryptocurrency. However, some cryptocurrencies are traded in bigger lots.
Another property of Safemoon which has attracted wide criticism is the ownership pattern of the current supply of the token. A large proportion of Safemoon’s total liquidity is owned by members of the founding team. Although these funds are in a so-called lock-up, such concentration of ownership is often a cause for serious concern in the crypto space. In part, this concern is because of the influence that major holders—called whales—have over price movements when they sell.

Binance.US is an American partner of Binance, the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange by trading volume, and which was founded in China in 2017. The original platform stopped accepting U.S. users in 2019, and announced it would instead partner with a U.S.-based version of its platform called Binance.US.
But what about now? Well, Binance.US certainly doesn't have the same level of liquidity that Binance does. If we look at the top traded pair on each exchange over the last 24 hours, BTC/USDT for Binance, and BTC/USD for Binance.US, the volumes are as follows:
