What are Crypto Denominations?
A standard crypto unit measures the value of one token or currency. All crypto units consist of a base or main unit and subunits, also called denominations. This is the same as most fiat currencies today. For example, in the United States, $1 is the base unit, while a denomination would be 100 cents.
1 Satoshi = 0.00000001 BTC.
What is Jager?
A Jager is the smallest denomination of Binance Coin (BNB). A Jager can be divisible up to 8 decimal places.
1 Jager = 0.00000001 BNB
“Divisibility” refers to the ability to divide a cryptocurrency within its prescribed set of rules or protocols. This is again similar to fiat currency. A U.S. dollar, for example, cannot be divided into a unit smaller than 1 cent. 1 Jager is the smallest unit that can be measured for BNB.
Depending on their protocol, different cryptocurrencies can be divided up to 8 decimal places or more, depending on whether the unit is divisible or indivisible.
The Origin of the Term “Jager” in Binance
The Jager unit was named after the Telegram handle of a Binance Community Manager at the time of its inception.
