Binance.US Adds Binance Coin (BNB) to Exchange's Launch

  • Binance.US announces the addition of native token BNB ahead of its official launch.
  • The exchange will support trading for seven crypto-assets out of the gate. 

Binance.US, the American division of leading cryptocurrency exchange Binance, has announced the addition of native token binance coin (BNB) to the platform. 

Binance.US Adds BNB Support

The US exchange was originally planning to launch with support for only six cryptoassets, including bitcoin (BTC), ethereum (ETH), litecoin (LTC), bitcoin cash (BCH), XRP and tether (USDT). Binace coin will join the limited selection upon launch of the exchange, which is scheduled for release on Sept. 18. 

Twitter users first noticed the addition of a seventh trading on the Binance.us website, posting screenshots showing the BNB/USD trading pair. 

Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao later retweeted the screenshots with the phrase “Utility token $BNB,” thereby confirming that the native coin would be available at launch. 

While Binance.US is set to launch in the US, 13 states will not be participating. According to an update published on the official Binance.US Medium page, users in New York, Florida, Texas and ten other states will not have access to the exchange.
