Binance adds XRP as a base pair

Recommended Posts

In the last few days the XRP community has asked Binance to list XRP as a base pair. One user referred to as "IzombieXRP" asked XRP's chief executive Changpeng “CZ” Zhao to list the asset as a base pair. Responding to this request, CZ said: "be careful what you wish for," and then ended his message with a cheeky smiley face.

Previously, Ethereum World News reported that this short message reveals that XRP will be listed by the startup as a base pair, a request that has flooded the inbox of the Binance staff for about a year now. And now, just some days later, CZ revealed that Binance will be adding XRP as a "quote (base) shortly." It wasn’t specified which pair will be supporting the new base pair, however we can predict that XRP will be matched with top cryptocurrencies.

As the UI of Binance runs out of space, there will be a change of name from Ether pairs to ALTS, probably to lessen the confusion for those making use of the exchanges.


When CZ made the tweet, the crypto community had some riots, with Bitcoiners and XRP Proponents discussing the issue in a state of disbelief, disarray and confusion. 

The XRP community went into a bullish clamor with one Steven Diop noting that "this news is bigger than the asset being listed on Coinbase." A big fan of Ripple, Dr. T expressed his gratitude to CZ for including XRP as a base, heaping praises on Binance for its rise to prominence.

Immediately the news broke out, XRP started surging. As at the time of writing, Ripple's XRP is valued at $0.44, rising 11.5% higher, as a result of the Binance news alone.
