What is BEP8 Token
Since the Nightingale upgrade of Binance Chain testnet, a new token protocol BEP8 is introduced. BEP8 protocol targets a different marketplace and provides several potential business cases in areas like micro-financing.
Currently, the cost to get a BEP2 token listed on Binance DEX is quite expensive, as it takes more system resources, which is more suitable for the mature and large scale projects with enough recognition in the markets. At the same time, more micro-financing cases like copyright owners, peer production, and community incentive points are looking for flexible tokenization and trading platforms to support their current works and share their potential future success. New BEP8 tokens market is introduced to meet these demands and will increase the liquidity of utility tokens, which is similar to Small and Medium Enterprise (SME) board in the traditional stock markets
