if you don't know the intimate details of what vanillla, binary, etc.. are.. don't trade and just start reading... EVERYTHING.. or else you will just pay more to understand later

that link sounds like a party of people that think they have found a product to make up for their lack of trading skills.. Ask yourself this.. why do institutions put out new products? transaction fees.. follow the money... either learn to make markets in binary options .. be a vol trader or liquidity trader.. this asymmetric payoff structure of binary options is the same in vanilla options except for the fact that vanilla options are better because their payoff is unlimited.. i would rather have asymmetric and unlimited payoff myself..
Oh and by the way.. Market makers sell options yes.. (liquidity function) but they usually fixate themselves in such a way where at some percentage move in the underlying they are long volatility..

if you really think that thread that was posted was a good one.. keep reading move is my suggestion..

i do know non the less there is money in binary options..
