The largest (in terms of trading volume) exchange Binance launched the Binance X initiative, in which it intends to attract third-party developers to create open source projects based on its own ecosystem.

Binance offers developers to “learn”, “collaborate” and “grow”. For training, there are already libraries with technical documentation that are constantly updated and contain tips. It should be noted, that, for example, the exchange's "SDKs" are available in: C++, Golang, Java, .NET, Node, PHP and Python. The exchange will also provide the necessary channels for communication between third-party developers and members of the Binance team, not only online, but also in real life; at the same time, the company offers various programs under which projects will receive financial and expert support at various stages of development.
