Binance to List USDC on 17.11.18

Binance will list USD Coin (USDC) stablecoin. This is reported by the company itself.

The “stable coin” from the Circle startup will be available on November 17 in pairs with Binance Coin (BNB) and Bitcoin.

Note that despite the very young age, the USDC is already on the 49th line of the CoinMarketCap rating. So far the most actively this token is traded on the Poloniex exchange, which since February is the property of Circle. However, with the addition of USDC, you can most likely expect an increase in the total trading volume of this coin, as well as further growth of its capitalization.

Binance management also announced the successful completion of maintenance on the platform.
