On Monday (January 14th), Singapore-headquartered cryptocurrency exchange Bitrue announced that by the end of January it would be listing XRP-based trading pairs for EOS, NEM (XEM), Polymath (POLY), and VeChain (VET).

Bitrue, which was founded in 2018, has quickly become a favorite with members of the XRP community because of the high degree of enthusiasm, support, and transparency shown by its management towards XRP. What is interesting about Bitrue is that it supported XRP as a base currency on the day that its trading platform was launched (19 July 2018).

Here is how Bitrue announced today's news on Twitter:

We need to remember what Bitrue announced on 27 December 2018:

And right after the start of 2019, Bitrue has been working hard to keep this promise:

  • January 3rd: XRP-based trading pairs added for TRON TRX), Stellar (XLM), NEO, Gas (GAS), and OmiseGo (OMG).
  • January 4th: XRP-based pair added for Bee Token (BEE).
  • January 7th: XRP-based trading pairs for Holo (HOT), Pundi X (NPSX), district0x (DNT), and Propy (PRO) announced (to be listed by January 11th).
  • January 11th: Trading for all four XRP-based pairs announced on January 7th was enabled.

So, by the end of last week, Bitrue had 26 XRP trading pairs: BCH/XRP; ETC/XRP; GTO/XRP; GUSD/XRP; KNC/XRP; LINK/XRP; LTC/XRP; PAX/XRP; QKC/XRP; TUSD/XRP; WAN/XRP; WTC/XRP; ZRX/XRP; XRP/BTC; XRP/USDT; XRP/ETH; XRP/TRX; XRP/XLM; XRP/NEO; XRP/GAS; XRP/OMG; BEE/XRP; HOT/XRP; NPXS/XRP; DNT/XRP; and PRO/XRP.

Also, on January 11th, Bitrue announced that four more XRP trading pairs would get listed within the next 2-3 weeks (i.e. by January 31th):

And since we had 26 XRP trading pairs before today's announcement, it looks like Bitrue will have at least 30 XRP trading pairs by the end of this month, just as they promised on January 11th.

Binance.US Considering Listing TRON (TRX), NEM (XEM), Tezos (XTZ), and Ontology (ONT)

Binance.US, Binance's trading platform for customers based in the U.S., has announced that it is exploring the idea of introducing support for up to 18 additional cryptoassets.

Binance.US, which was launched in September 2019, is a digital asset exchange that is "powered by matching engine and wallet technologies" licensed from Binance but is operated by San Francisco-based BAM Trading Services.

On Tuesday (December 10), Catherine Coley, the CEO of Binance.US, published a blog post that provided a recap of the exchange's achievements since launch date, the main one of which is trading support for 26 cryptoassets.

Examples of some of the most recently added cryptossets are NANO, QTUM, LINK, DOGE, ALGO, ZEC, DASH, and VET.

More interestingly, Coley said that Binance.US is using its Digital Asset Risk Assessment Framework to evaluate 18 other cryptoassets -- CELR, DCR, ENJ, FTM, ICX, IOST, KMD, OMG, ONE, ONT, REN, SNT, THETA, TOMO, TRX, XEM, XTZ, HBAR -- to decide which of these should be added.
