Binance P2P is the peer-to-peer marketplace of the Binance ecosystem. P2P connects buyers and sellers directly. For instance, a buyer in Nigeria can find sellers in his country interested in selling bitcoin for a specific payment method. Binance P2P plays the role of an escrow that ensures that both buyer and seller meet all the terms of the trade.

Binance P2P is available in several regions, excluding the United States, Republic of Belarus, The Democratic Republic of the Congo, Cuba, Iraq, Iran, North Korea, Sudan, Syria, and Zimbabwe.

The major difference between Binance P2P and other platforms like Paxful and LocalBitcoins is that Binance P2P trades come with 0 fees. Further, it supports a wide range of supported cryptocurrencies, including bitcoin (BTC), binance coin (BNB), ethereum (ETH), tether USD (USDT), and binance USD (USDT).
