Why Are Tier 1 Exchange Listings Important!

in hive-175254 •  2 years ago 

Imagine you know some great coin with so many use cases and huge potential but that coin isn't listed on a good exchange with good volume and liquidity. If you recommend that coin to an experienced investor, it is highly unlikely for him to buy that coin because no one would like their money to be stuck somewhere.


That's right, there are plenty of exchanges out there with no liquidity and volume and whenever you move your money there, chances are that it will be stuck as you might able to sell a coin at your market price.

Besides this problem, coins do not reach their true potential if they are just listed on small exchanges. There are always exceptions but this is true most of the time.

Let's take an example of Balancer (BAL). This coin wasn't listed on Tier 1 exchanges until yesterday. I had bought this coin at $8 and $10 by the dollar-cost average method. I held this coin for over 2 months and there was no price appreciation. I had bought it on MXC exchange and while this exchange claims that it has a volume of millions of dollars, in reality, it isn't even $10k.

Balancer got listed on Binance yesterday and saw tremendous gains just after the listing was announced. Huobi also listed Balancer today which added fuel to the fire and Balancer is burning real hot right now at almost $27. That is a 3x on my investment.

You won't find the real trades on small exchnages, for that you have to be on Binance, Huobi, Okex, and other popular exchanges with good volume. Also, many people get to know about a particular coin only after it is listed on a big exchange and if it is not on a big exchange, they won't buy it.

Tier 1 exchanges also provide investors and traders an element of trust to invest in a particular coin as mostly big exchanges do their homework before listing a coin.

I totally agree.
The big trade-offs give more security for the investment, no doubt.
Good move, that purchase you made, very good profit margin

Moreover, the reputation of big exchanges also matters.

You really have a point. One of the factor discouraging many people in considering the low exchange is their liquidity level compared to the big ones like binance.
You must have made a huge gain

Yes, the gain I made was good. I didn't invest much but still profit is profit even if it is very small.

Coins that have an enormous amount of liquidity have a good amount of traders.

Traders always look for liquidity.

Exposure, liquidity and maybe a share of those USDT (winks), top tier exchanges are good stuffs for cryptocurrency projects despite the outrageous listing fees.

Yeah, the listing fees is something that makes them less affordable but they come with huge benefits.

I'm glad you had a good profit, of course big exchanges are important to everyone, that's where a lot of investors move.

Exchanges like Binance, Huobi, etc are the ones where you'll find majority of the traders.

@syedumair good and big Exchanges have volume and volume means price will be appricated as many people will buy and do trading at the same time so that's why listing on big Exchanges is good for development.

Volume doesn't necessarily mean that the price will appreciate but yeah good volume always helps.
