We’ve introduced features like Binance Tax and User Feedback Tool, along with small improvements that make day-to-day use easier for users. These tools give people a new way to suggest new features that we should continue building for our community.”
As part of the product discussion at the super-meet-up, Mayur introduced ‘strategy trading’ as coming soon to the MENA region. Additionally, he reminded people that Binance has launched a new tool for users to share their feedback. Binance has received hundreds of feedback pieces since the launch. The next phase of this project has just been released which sees product managers leaving replies to the feedback they’ve been given on the platform.
