Crypto Industry News:
The leading cryptocurrency exchange, Binance, began listing four trading pairs for the Russian ruble, as announced today. The first trading pairs with the ruble are Binance Coin, Bitcoin, Ethereum and XRP. Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao commented on the move in a tweet sent the same day.
The addition of trading pairs by Binance followed the introduction of ruble trading on the platform in late October when Zhao announced that users can now deposit and withdraw cash in rubles.
Zhao previously praised Russia’s position as an important jurisdiction for the cryptographic and Blockchain industry, recognizing the wealth of IT talents in Russia and calling for President Vladimir Putin to be the most influential person in the Blockchain industry.
Ruble support and trading pairs are the latest in a series of new features and resources added to the platform over the past few months. In November alone, Binance added support for the Turkish Lira and also became the first stock exchange to add the Fiat Gateway developed by Paxos.
Meanwhile, the other cryptocurrency trading platforms are also expanding their activities. According to reports that appeared in mid-November, Bitcoin futures contracts on the Bakkt Intercontinental Exchange (ICE) platform will be extended with the option of cash settlement. In turn, in the middle of November, the OKEx cryptographic exchange launched futures contracts for Bitcoins, which are supplemented with Tablecoin stablecoin.
