High Ethereum transaction fees pushing investors to Binance smart chain

Spread the love

New and old cryptocurrency investors and traders are seeking Ethereum alternatives to avoid the extremely high Ethereum transaction fees. The main reason for using Defi and cryptocurrency is to achieve independence from the finance firms and centralized banks.

However, it looks like this purpose is being defeated due to the high fees associated with Ethereum transactions. Thus, making decentralized finance (Defi) untradeable for the average user. Hence, it is no surprise that investors are flocking to Binance and other centralized platforms. The Rekt blog even polled its audience to determine what could be the problem.

Why Did Binance Suspend Ethereum Trading On Its Platform?

Using claims of network congestion on February 19, Binance crypto exchange suspended withdrawals on ERC-20 and Ethereum. But most industry analysts claim that this reason was not smart.

Inside sources claim that Changpeng Zhao, the charismatic Head of Binance and his team have shown strong brazenness in promoting an Ethereum alternative. That ETH alternative is their Binance smart chain which has continued to gain more popularity as time goes, primarily through dApps created on the BSC-environment and criticizing Ethereum to achieve that goal.

Rising Ethereum gas fees has increased the popularity of the Binance system. Thus, a growing number of small Defi projects and Yield Farms are being built on the Binance smart chain.

According to Rekt’s analysis, industry analysts understand the insider tricks going on, but new traders look only interested in making more profits without paying huge transaction fees. When Rekt interviewed Calvin Chu to seek his opinion on whether adoption of Binance smart chain and similar products will affect decentralized systems negatively, he answered:

“Over time, the market will understand the importance of a decentralized system and censorship-resistance products will become more powerful and expensive. But if crypto is truly about the pwoer of freedom to the users, then users should be given the “freemium” model so that they can understand the basics as they get their feet wet about defi and more importantly, they wont pay huge transaction fees in the process.”

Also, Lark Davis warns that if ETH 2.0 isn’t launched soon, most ETH users will start flocking their competition.

New Users Persist with The Binance Smart Chain.

It is no longer news that newbies prefer starting with BSC and sticking with them for two major reasons. The user-interface of the platform is more straightforward than other Ethereum-based options. Also, it is cheaper. At the time of writing, the average transaction fees stand at $30 – a record high.

These newbies are more interested in profits than centralization. This contrasts with cryptocurrency experts who are more concerned about centralization than the profits they seek to earn.

For most people, Ethereum is now a whale chain, particularly now that a token swap on Uniswap is as high as $50. Crypto newbies diving into the Defi pool under Binance exchange and other centralized corporate colossi will keep rising until the implementation of major gas-saving solutions such as EIP-1559 or layer-2. However, at this moment, Ethereum price is trading far below its all-time peak price.
