Spanish fintech firm Bnext released its B3X utility token on September 13 on Gate.io. Freedom of money is something that everyone aspires to. Centralized financial institutions have forever enjoyed the monopoly.
These centralized institutions also control the funds where users don’t have direct control of their money. This instance leads to a greater necessity for a decentralized banking system.
A decentralized financial system ensures freedom of money where users control their money. This paved the path to the rise of Bnext. It is one of the first Spanish fintech firms. Let us take a deeper look at Bnext.
