Although this is very bullish for Fetch.AI, the Binance Launchpad platform seems not to be working in a very smooth way. There are some users on social networks that are complaining about this issue. @KhanXXIII wrote that he bought BNB twice after waiting hours to buy BitTorrent Tokens (BTT) and Fetch but he was not able to purchase none of them.
Why can the common investor never buy anything on Launchpad. Lost value in BNB twice in a row after waiting hours to buy both BTT and Fetch and not being able to. #disaster

A few weeks ago, BitTorrent held an Initial Coin Offering (ICO) on the Binance Launchpad. During the ICO, thousands of users were not able to purchase the BTT tokens sold. Binance Coin and Tron (TRX) were the only coins available to purchase BTT tokens. Thus, the price of these digital assets grew substantially the days before the token sale and dropped more than 10% the minutes and hours after the ICO. While Binance have a few things to improve about their launchpad, its nice to know that there are still projects being developed on a bear market.
If you’re interested to purchase Fetch AI tokens, you can use the Binance OTC service, but you need to have a high budget.
