Binance support

In addition, Binance users when visited the platform’s homepage on December 28, they noticed that DOT/USDT pair was replaced by the ETH/BUSD trading pair. Dot community didn’t liked that. After Polkadot price gained strong momentum, Binance had to move DOT pair to its home page instead of ETH, gaining attention of traders.

Alternative to Ethereum

While the decentralized financial sector (defi) is getting more and more attention, the problem of scalability continues to be a headache. The total value of the DeFi sector exceeded $ 22.5 billion at the time of writing. As the DeFi field gradually expanded, one of the biggest problems, Ethereum’s scalability problems, began to show more and more.

Polkadot, on the other hand, promises an ecosystem that will be an alternative to Ethereum for decentralized projects and DeFi users. DOT aims to solve the problem of scalability by running smart contracts in an ecosystem of smaller blockchains called parachain. This makes Polkadot a good alternative for those who want to avoid both Ethereum’s high transaction fees and scalability issues.
