Binance added two new XRP based trading pairs, TRX/XRP and XZC/XRP as the quoted asset into the new Combined ALTS Trading Market (ALTS) at 2018/12/24 11:00 AM (UTC).
XRP is taken as the base currency for the first time at the Binance Exchange starting with two pairs and more pairs to be added later. Binance is the leading exchange by volume and new XRP market will provide a good trading volume to XRP.
It has also announced that the original ETH Trading Market (ETH) will be renamed into the ALTS Trading Market, to support more trading pairs with different quote currencies.
We will prioritize adding more pairs for the projects that have donated to our charity at this (even thought we never mentioned this during our fund raising efforts). Happy holidays!
