SEGMENT 1 QUESTIONS ( Twitter selected questions)




CRYPTO BELIEVERS :
Q1 : What is the role of the BNS token in the Bitbns Exchange? What will users benefit from holding BNS tokens in the long term?

VAIBHAV SETH (BITBNS) :

BNS token will provide discounts on trading fees, withdrawal fees etc on Bitbns exchange, Other than this users will be directly able to access and run utilities of BNS token directly from bitbns to avail great offer, For example:
There was 0 trading fees in USDT market for 5+ weeks for users having a SIP goal on bitdroplet.
Traders can trade for as low as 0.03% just by doing trades + holding BNS, More such benefits and offers for BNS token hodlers will be released in future.




CRYPTO BELIEVERS :
Q2 : Can I connect bots to my account on bitbns exchange and also to auto-trading platforms? How efficient is your REST API to allow this?

VAIBHAV SETH (BITBNS) :

Yes, You can do API trading on our platform. Currently we allow it only for coders which users can use easily, We will also launch a similar version for non-coders in few days.
More details on API trading can be checked here https://bitbns.com/trade/#/api-trading/ 


CRYPTO BELIEVERS :
Q3
 : OTC is a potential market, #Bitbns plans to implement this market?
What is the listing process of #Bitbns? How many criteria for a project to be listed on #Bitbns , and Is there any difference with other exchanges?

VAIBHAV SETH (BITBNS) :

We are definitely planning to enter in OTC market in future, Testing on it has been started from our UAE based users for it which has pretty good attraction from day 1.
Before listing we evaluate tokens on basis of their use-cases and utilities for the community for a longer period of time rather than focusing on short term hyped PnD projects.



CRYPTO BELIEVERS :
Q4 : The biggest barrier for newcomers in the Crypto space today is buying and withdrawing with FIAT, how robust is your FIAT GATEWAY, do you have plans for other currencies of other nations other than INR.

VAIBHAV SETH (BITBNS) :

FIAT gateway plays an essential roles in centralised exchanges, We have P2P + Direct FIAT transaction gateway for our users doing transaction with INR, Anyone can deposit instantly within few seconds and we are also exploring similar method for enhance our withdrawals flow too.

Our UAE and Thailand users can enjoy doing transaction with USDT P2P, Peers of both regions are super active in-order to confirm and process transactions.

• We also have FIAT on-ramp gateway on bitdroplet for doing instant transactions with Euro and GBP.

• We support INR, AED, THB, Euro and GBP currently and we have plans to expand our services in 27 more countries.


CRYPTO BELIEVERS :
Q5 :
On bitdroplet, you mentioned an example about Komal investing 400 INR weekly into BTC for 2 years, the ROI was -0.67% btc. It is not really convincing, what makes bitdroplet a good way for investment?

VAIBHAV SETH (BITBNS) :

We show returns transparently for different timeperiod on bitdroplet, You can switch timeframe once from weekly to daily frequency in 2 years and see that average returns every year is around 22-25% which is much higher than Fixed deposit, Mutual funds SIP and gold.

We have suggested daily frequency SIP goal from our side, Anyone can start stacking sats for minimum 80₹ – 1 USDT per day.

Our goal is to transparently show past returns at different timeperiod, Doesn’t matters if it is showing negative returns for short timeframe, It helps building more trust and confidence in the community to stack more satoshi rather than holding FIAT currency..

• DCA ensures to reduce loss and give profit for your long-term savings goal, For example:

If you had started a SIP goal at ATH price of BTC and stacked sats for 2 years then average returns on it would have been around 27% P.A.
