Besides, the official blog also revealed Binance DEX becoming the first platform to offer ONT holders an opportunity to decentralized trading services. As a result, users can now trade ONT tokens as well as take complete control over their assets. Reportedly, this would expand the use cases of ONT and also increase its liquidity.
There was also an announcement of the development in an Ontology Medium blog post. It highlighted how huge an opportunity it was for the blockchain platform to have the opportunity to leverage Binance DEX.
Considering what Ontology brings to the collaboration, the token supports all ERC-20 tokens, in-DApp stablecoin queries, among other functions. Moreover, there are plans to add a node staking feature to integrate it with the Binance DEX. Essentially, this would help provide better DEX services for ONT users. It would also make it easier for the users to have full control over their assets and participating in ecosystem governance.
