Launched in September 2019, Binance USD (BUSD) is a stablecoin pegged to the U.S. Dollar at a 1:1 ratio. BUSD coin is issued jointly by Binance cryptocurrency exchange and Paxos, a widely-recognized blockchain solutions company that also issues its own stablecoin called the Pax dollar or USDP.
BUSD is supported both by the native BNB Chain as well as the Ethereum blockchain. The stablecoin is approved by the New York State Department of Financial Services (NYDFS) and is said to be audited on a monthly basis. The audit is conducted to verify that BUSD issuance is backed by corresponding USD reserves, and the monthly attestation reports can be accessed on both Paxos and Binance websites.
Since BUSD is a dollar-pegged cryptocurrency, it is actively used for online payments as well as crypto trading. Some users also hold stablecoins like BUSD to store value and hedge against inflation in local currencies compared to the U.S. dollar.
According to our BUSD live price chart, BUSD price has always been in the vicinity of $1, ever since its launch in September 2019. Although it deviates by a few cents every now and then, it has never witnessed any sharp falls or rises, barring a couple of occasions.
BUSD coin’s first noteworthy fluctuation came in March 2020 when it rose to an all-time high of $1.11 on March 12, but quickly lost a fair bit of ground and plummeted down to its all-time low of $0.88, within 24 hours, on March 13, as markets around the world crashed due to COVID-19 breaking out. Besides those two instances, BUSD price has been fairly stable all along.
While BUSD was originally issued on the Ethereum blockchain as an ERC-20 token, it can also exist on the BNB Chain in the BEP-2 token format. You can buy it directly on the Paxos platform on a 1:1 basis against USD, at zero fees, and use it anywhere within the crypto ecosystem, for loans, commerce, payments etc.
Paxos is responsible for the issuance of BUSD coins. To buy BUSD directly on Paxos, you must be a verified user and deposit USD funds through wire transfer. Alternatively, BUSD can also be purchased on various other established cryptocurrency exchanges, including Binance.
Whenever a BUSD holder wishes to redeem their BUSD for cash, the coins are burnt by Paxos, and the user is reimbursed with their cash equivalent. There’s no cap on how many BUSD can be issued, and its supply depends entirely on the amount of fiat collateral deposited with Paxos for minting BUSD.
It is claimed that BUSD is 100% backed by US Treasury bills (including money-market funds and/or repurchase agreements) and cash reserves held in insured US banks.
In an important news development for BUSD coin, in August 2020, the New York Department of Financial Services (NYDFS) added Binance USD to its ‘Greenlist’ of approved stablecoins. While BUSD was approved by NYDFS at its launch in September 2019, exchanges required approval before listing it as a crypto asset on their respective platforms. This development meant that licensed financial institutions could now freely use BUSD, without requiring any prior regulatory approval.
More recently, in April 2022, amid the Russia-Ukraine war, Binance announced a crypto card for displaced Ukrainians, allowing the card holders to receive financial support in BUSD coins. To receive financial support, the card holders had to be verified by local nonprofit organizations. Besides availing financial relief in the form of BUSD, the card enabled Ukrainian refugees to freely send and receive crypto payments, and conduct transactions at retail establishments spread all over the European Economic Area.
