Binance US, which is the United States version of Binance that recently launched following the ban of United States residents from Binance, has announced that they will be listing the popular cryptocurrency Dogecoin. Dogecoin has been one of the most popular alternative cryptocurrencies since the early days of the crypto market, and continues to have a large community that is known for generous tipping. It is based on the doge meme, which was a picture of a shiba inu dog with a curious expression that was open for interpretation.
A Dogecoin/Tether (USDT) trading pair will initially be available, and trading will go live once a sufficient amount of liquidity is reached via deposits.
This is significant news for the Dogecoin market, since at this time it is not available on any other exchange in the United States besides Bittrex. Therefore, Binance US listing it will enhance the ability of United States customers to buy and sell the meme digital asset. Indeed, this announcement has caused a 5% surge in the Dogecoin price over the last 24 hours.
