Major Cryptocurrency Exchange Binance Lists Ripple’s XRP as a Base Pair

Cryptocurrency Exchange Binance

Crypto exchange Binance has added Ripple’s XRP as a base currency on the exchange. With this announcement, it means that XRP will now be used more as a primary asset that can be used to make purchases of other cryptocurrencies listed on the platform. Although some minor digital exchanges have already added XRP with other altcoins and fiat currencies, this will mark the first listing of its kind on a top crypto exchange. Binance is rolling out the TRX/XRP (Tron) and XZC/XRP (Zcoin) pairs.

Changpeng “CZ” Zhao, CEO of Binance, flirted with the idea of making this move earlier in the year, giving signs via Twitter that the company was planning something in this direction.

The XRP community unanimously rallied, believing it should be added as a base pair on Binance. A user on Twitter with the username “C3|Nik” asked Zhao to list the currency as a base pair to the exchange. Zhao didn’t respond, but another Twitter user with the username “izombieXRP” asked for him to either perform the same action or gift him a Camaro.

In response to “izombieXRP’s tweet, Zhao had teased the user, saying, “Careful what you wish for. :)”

Days later, Zhao made the announcement officially via his Twitter account.
