ETH/USD is having a better recovery trading at $346 from a low of $308 and still above the 100-MA on the daily chart.

Market

Binance Coin is by far the strongest cryptocurrency right now and got close to a full recovery on September 6 after climbing above $23. It is currently trading at $21.5, still standing above most cryptos thanks to the recent announcement by Binance about the launch of Yield Farming.

The new Binance Launchpool will serve as a platform for users to stake their tokens to earn other tokens. The first project to join the pool is Bella Protocol. Users will have the chance to stake ARPA, BUSD, and BNB in order to earn BEL tokens. 90% of all BEL tokens airdropped will be in the BNB staking pool. 

This announcement has boosted the price of BNB by around 26% with increasing trading volume.

CEO and Founder of Ziglu, Mark Hipperson stated:

Paying people should be instant, free and easy regardless of their location or the currency, whether that is splitting the cost of your AirBnB or sending a Bitcoin birthday present.

Quote of the day

Whereas most technologies tend to automate workers on the periphery doing menial tasks, blockchains automate away the center. Instead of putting the taxi driver out of a job, blockchain puts Uber out of a job and lets the taxi drivers work with the customer directly.
