21 Altcoins Listed
Binance.US is a San Francisco-based digital asset exchange that is licensed from Binance and which was launched in September 2019; it is “powered by matching engine and wallet technologies” and operated by BAM Trading Services. The announcement has come one week after the listing of Dogecoin (DOGE), Binance USD (BUSD) and IOTA (IOTA). This brings the number of coins listed by the world’s leading cryptocurrency exchange across the USD, USDT and BTC markets to 21, with no signs that they are about to stop.
The Waves blockchain platform only recently added support for the Ethereum-based (ETH) ERC-20 compliant tokens to its decentralized exchange (DEX). During the occasion, the platform announced it hoped the new feature it announced on August 22, 2019, would impact the crypto community in a positive manner.
Free Trades until November 1
The Waves team also recently launched a new gateway with support for Vostok and Ergo tokens and the team was also focused on attracting new traders and assets to the platform. The post from the firm said then:
“Soon, you will see new trading pairs with ERC-20 tokens. Last year, we conducted voting for listing ERC-20 token. Bancor (BNT) won the voting and became the first candidate for listing on Waves DEX. So, we made it. […] The next asset that can be added via a gateway is ETH. Then, we will add BTC support. It is scheduled for September.”
There was already speculation that WAVES was in the list of altcoins that would join the growing list of coins listed by Binance.US.
