In a Medium post they gave an insight into what plans they have for the upcoming months.
“Binance.US recognizes that the ease of issuing blockchain tokens and the perceived lack of regulation could make these tokens targets for abuse. Binance.US has both legal obligations and moral duties to shield our users from fraudulent blockchain projects and combat financial crimes.”
They have released a list of 30 Altcoins that they will be evaluating to add to the US exchange, the list is as follows:
- ADA, ATOM, BAT, BCHABC, BNB, BTC, DASH, EOS, ETC, ETH, HOT, IOTA, LINK, LOOM, LTC, MANA, NANO, NEO, PAX, REP, RVN, TUSD, USDC, USDT, VET, WAVES, XLM, XRP, ZIL, ZRX.
