    As I understand, any coin represents the value of the company, similar to stocks in the stock markets. Shares X Price = Market Cap. Coins x price = Market Cap. Therefore in addition to using these coins for tradings costs, these coins value the worth of Bitfinance, which can be compared to the E-Trades or Fidelity’s of the world. Is this correct?

      Hi there,

      Most coins aren’t backed by any sort of company and are “decentralized,” meaning control of the coin is dictated by a group of users rather than a board of executives. While a coin’s market capitalization (market cap) can be calculated using a similar formula as a stock’s market cap (market cap = # coins x coin price), it is not an absolute indicator a coin’s value. Much like with stocks, the price of coins can be manipulated to make something seem more or less valuable than it actually is.

      What’s interesting about Binance Coin is that it is backed by a company and indeed acts more like a “share” than say, bitcoin, for example. And since Binance Coin can be used to perform trades on and has other functions related to Binance, its arguable that the market cap of Binance Coin is somewhat tied to the company’s overall success. However, since Binance Coin is a cryptocurrency, it isn’t regulated by the same rules that govern the trading and issue of stocks, so it is important to be aware of this distinction.
