Which base currency to use depends on your personal view and expectation of the market.

As an example, for Binance you can define the following base currencies:

  • Tether (USDT)
  • Bitcoin (BTC)

Tether is relatively stable compared to fiat currencies (like USD or EURO). Bitcoin can be very volatile, either up or down. Which one to choose as base currency is up to you.
