Bitrue, a Singapore-based cryptocurrency exchange, announced the launch of three trading pairs for Binance coin [BNB] on 26 March. The cryptocurrency exchange added BNB/XRP, BNB/BTC, and BNB/USDT.
The news came after Bitrue added four new XRP-based pairs, ZIL/XRP, IOST/XRP, GNT/XRP, and ICX/XRP. Bitrue had already listed 35 XRP-based pairs and the addition of BNB/XRP has pushed the total number of XRP-based pairs to 36.
The addition of Binance Coin trading pairs to the exchange is a move aimed at gauging some attention from the Binance community. Bitrue and Binance are two popular crypto-exchanges enjoying equal support from the XRP community. This listing is also unusual because of the fact that hardly any exchange adds a coin native to a competing exchange.
A member of the XRP community @Akasost had asked Bitrue for a BNB/XRP pairs on 27 March,
“Hey @BitrueOfficial @Curis_Wang and @binance fans. Who wants to see @BitrueOfficial add an XRP-BNB @binance coin base pair? #xrpcommunity #bnb #xrp #xrpthebase #XRPTheStandard”
Bitrue CEO Curis Wang responded, with Binance’s Chagpeng Zhao, tweeting,
“Careful what you wish for 😁”
After Bitrue added BNB/XRP pair, the Twitter user responded,
“Geez that was quick. XRP base pair with @binance BNB coin, I only asked a few days ago. Those irons must have been in the filings 😂 nice works once again @BitrueOfficial quickly becoming my favourite exchange #xrpcommunity #XrpTheBase #ripple”
CZ also replied to his tweet, stating that they do listen to crypto-users.
