Binance US Begins Supporting Trading for 13 Currency Pairs

By Emily Rys | September 24, 2019

Binance US – the North American branch of the high-profile, Malta-based crypto exchange platform Binance – will officially starts to facilitate transactions beginning September 24, free-of-charge until early November. 

Specifically, Binance US will be providing facilitation for 13 fiat-to-crypto and crypto-to-crypto trading pairs starting September 24, as announced via a blog post a day prior. 

The trading pairs will be in big digital coins in the market at the moment, nominally Bitcoin (BTC), Ether (ETH), XRP, Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Litecoin (LTC), Binance Coin (BNB) and the Tether (USDT) stablecoin.

The crypto exchange will be disclosing the upcoming cryptocurrencies that would be available on the platform shortly, accompanied by an evaluation period based on its Digital Asset Risk Assessment Framework.

The Know Your Customer (KYC) onboarding protocol has been initiated before the official roll-out of Binance US services, in an attempt to ensure protections for its clients with accounts and deposit funds verification. 

The news was announced simultaneously with an update from Binance, regarding the introduction of an altcoin dubbed Tezos (XTZ) – currently standing at 18th by market capitalization.
