Binance to List Its New Dollar-Backed BUSD Stablecoin Next Week
Binance’s new dollar-backed stablecoin, BUSD, created in partnership with the Paxos Trust Company, will be made available for trading on the cryptocurrency exchange the week of Sept. 16.
Announced on Thursday at CoinDesk’s Invest: Asia conference, Paxos co-founder Rich Teo said:
“We minted out first batch of Binance U.S. dollars. It will be made available for trading starting next week [against] a few trading pairs such as BTC and BNB.”
Earlier this month, the Paxos Trust Company, which already issues its own dollar-backed and gold-backed stablecoins, obtained additional regulatory approval from the New York Department of Financial Services (NYDFS) to issue BUSD.
Now Binance will list the asset on its exchange, which is the largest globally by trading volume, alongside a slew of other stablecoins already listed on the platform such as USDT, USDC and PAX.
“Launching a stablecoin approved by the New York State Department of Financial Services (NYDFS) is a strategic step for Binance to provide on-chain financial services for users across the world,” said Binance CFO Wei Zhou.
This is not the first stablecoin to be created by Binance and listed on the cryptocurrency exchange. In July, the Jersey arm of Binance enabled trading for its own British pound-backed stablecoin called Binance GBP (BGBP).
Seeing a multi-coin future where many different “types and forms” of stablecoins are traded actively on the exchange, Zhou added:
“[We] hope to launch more compliant stablecoins backed by fiat reserves in the future, introducing more stability to the cryptocurrency world.”

Tezos (XTZ) seems to be immune to the recent crypto market slide, continuing its rally from the past weeks. XTZ was up to as high as $1.33, gaining momentum and potentially signaling a successful quarter. XTZ Carries Warning for Pump Behavior Tezos price moves have confused traders, as there is no significant underlying reason for the appreciation. The best explanation is hype based on the recent addition to Coinbase, making the asset more accessible. #XTZ 4H and daily breaking consolidation. Picked up some this morning for a potential push. Bitcoin may try to ruin the party but for now the chart shows promise. pic.twitter.com/C0KfvzxAkh — NebraskanGooner📈 (@nebraskangooner) November 21, 2019 The XTZ price move follows bullish chart indicators, which help move a relatively small market. Tezos trading volume clocked around $113 million in 24 hours and is the second-biggest in the coin’s history. In the past month, XTZ moved up from stagnant positions around $0.76, once again attempting to move into a price of a few dollars. Tezos Project Delay Led to Lower XTZ Price One of the setbacks for…Nov 23, 2019
Bitcoin is currently looking promising to break back towards five figures, however, one key factor still needs to happen before traders can be confident that the leading cryptocurrency has turned bullish. January Likely To Be Bitcoin’s Best Month Since June Should Bitcoin avoid a major price correction over the next 24 hours it will have had the largest monthly increase in market value since the middle of last year. Although the Bitcoin price is notoriously volatile, this increase adds to the growing list of signals suggesting an impending bull run. The only thing standing in Bitcoin’s way of a bullish turn-around is whether or not it can close on the monthly above $9,158. Analyst Filbfilb made note of this fact in a recent tweet: Bitcoin closes the Month tomorrow. A close above $9158 prints a higher high on the monthly close for the first time since June 2019. There is also a bullish cross on the MACD above zero. Difficult to have a bearish argument tbh. pic.twitter.com/At3D0tDWmk — fil₿fil₿ (@filbfilb) January 30, 2020 The other technical indicator noted by the…Jan 31, 2020
Blockchain, the technology that was born with Bitcoin (BTC) continues to grow and expand, following the general trend of the cryptocurrency market. In the last years, blockchain-related jobs and skills have been in high demand by both large and small companies. In a recent report released by LinkedIn, for the first time, blockchain was the most requested skill in the world. Blockchain Technology Continues Growing It is impossible to negate the growth that blockchain technology had over the last years. Indeed, due to this reason, it became the skill with the highest demand from companies. According to the report produced by LinkedIn, blockchain topped the ranking of skills they make every single year. On the mater, LinkedIn explained: “Many of these skills will continue to evolve rapidly. For example, for the first time this year, blockchain not only made the list of top skills, but topped it—highlighting an increasing awareness and demand for the wider applications of this skill.” Blockchain, also known as distributed ledger technology (DLT), can be used for many things. Indeed, DLT is used to support the…Jan 20, 2020
Mike McCarthy was a change that the Dallas Cowboys sorely needed. As a head coach with a record of success, fans had every reason to believe he’d fix the franchise. But it looks like he already has the Cowboys on the wrong track. For many Dallas Cowboys fans, head coach Mike McCarthy will be able to do no wrong – at least until the 2020 season starts. There’s a simple reason why: He’s not Jason Garrett. Garrett gave the franchise with some much-needed stability, but that .500 ceiling was just too much to bear. So, he had to go. If Mike McCarthy wants the honeymoon period to last, he’s going to have to prove he can turn the team around. If he drops the ball, makes a few classic Cowboys coaching errors, or becomes another Jerry Jones puppet, the claws are going to come out. It looks like he may have already made his first big mistake. Mike McCarthy: Kellen Moore Will Be Calling The Plays Late last week, McCarthy announced that Kellen Moore would be calling the plays next…Jan 20, 2020
It has been challenging to find noteworthy sue cases for blockchain technology. A new report indicates the food industry should pay more attention to these distributed ledgers. Most people know blockchain technology due to its use in cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin. The Food Industry and Blockchain However, the same technology can be utilized in systems that do not involve financial transactions as well. Identifying those potential applications has been an ongoing process over the years. A new report by Juniper Research highlights how the food industry can be a major use case. More specifically, the research claims how retailers could start driving down their overhead costs. By streamlining supply chains and “upgrading” the food recall processes, a lot of money can be saved. This will all need to happen in conjunction with the deployment of distributed ledgers, or blockchains. When combining this innovative technology with the Internet of Things, significant potential can be unlocked. One key issue the food industry still struggles with is the trust factor between themselves and consumers. Transparency and efficiency are in high demand, yet it…Nov 29, 2019
Atlus, creators of the Persona series, has been asked for a Switch port of their latest Persona game numerous times. Despite this, Atlus’ communications manager says that fans’ voices must continue to be heard if the port is going to happen. Apparently, Atlus just doesn’t know what’s good for them as a company anymore. Recently it came out that Atlus, creators of Persona 5, knows how much fans want a Switch port. IGN spoke to Ari Advincula, Atlus’ communications manager, and asked her if fans should give up on the idea. She said she was a strong believer in “never giving up hope” and that Atlus knows that fans want a port. But it is apparently up to fans to keep telling Atlus that a port is wanted. Advincula is probably not the person who decides what gets ported and what doesn’t, she’s a communications manager. But if Atlus knows how much fans want a port, then they should bloody well make one then. I’m not the only person who feels this way either. Many folks on Twitter think that Atlus…Feb 18, 2020
A lot of people have a genuine dislike toward Ripple and XRP. There are also genuine concerns over its ODL service being capable of convincing enough financial institutions. It is evident that the bias toward this company has grown somewhat out of proportion. GPI and Ripple Aren’t Competing yet However, one post on StockTwits paints an interesting picture. One has to keep in mind the original news dates back to September of 2019. By that time, there was no one worrying too much about this peculiar development. In the post, it is explained how SWIFT rolled out a new system called GPI. Over 3.500 financial institutions had signed up for this solution at the time. According to Verodus, this would prove disastrous for Ripple and XRP alike. For now, the impact of GPI hasn’t been felt by Ripple in the slightest. That is primarily because the company’s focus lies on Southeast Asia, where SWIFT is not necessarily all that popular. Moreover, it is possible for banks to utilize multiple systems depending on the circumstances and needs of their clients. It…Jan 18, 2020
Ethereum is declining and it recently traded below the $148 support against the US Dollar. The price is currently below $145 and it seems like there is a risk of more downsides. Yesterday’s key bearish trend line is active with resistance near $147 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD (data feed via Kraken). The price could correct higher, but it is likely to face sellers near $146 and $148. Ethereum price is declining further below key supports versus the US Dollar, similar to bitcoin. ETH price remains at a risk of another drop towards the $135 and $132 levels. Ethereum Price Analysis Recently, Ethereum made a couple of attempts to climb above the $150 and $152 resistance levels against the US Dollar. However, ETH price struggled to gain momentum above $150 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. As a result, there was another bearish reaction below the $148 support area. Moreover, the price broke a couple of important supports near the $145 level. Finally, the price traded to a new weekly low near $143 and it is currently consolidating…Dec 4, 2019
