Binance to List Coinbase and Circle’s Stablecoin: USD Coin

Binance, the world’s most popular cryptocurrency exchange, has announced that it will list USD Coin (USDC), a dollar-pegged stablecoin created by Coinbase and Circle, the owner of Poloniex, via the CENTRE Consortium.

According to the announcement, Binance has already opened deposits for USDC and trading for USDC/BTC and USDC/BNB pairs will begin on Friday, November 16 at 10:00 PM EST.

USDC was built using the ERC-20 standard and operates within the regulated framework of U.S. money transmission laws, and is “reinforced by established banking partners and auditors,” according to Circle. Since launching in September, USDC has seen tens of billions of dollars in trading volume and the circulation supply is now $148 million with more than 50 exchanges supporting trading.

With this new listing, Binance now supports three different dollar-pegged stablecoins, including Tether (USDT) and Paxos Standard Token (PAX).
