Binance DEX announced the start of trading in the Mithril token (MITH) together with Binance Coin (BNB). This is the first asset in the listing site.

At the same time, the exchange presented the listing rules for assets. So, anyone can release a token on the Binance Chain, but listing it to the marketplace takes place in several stages.

First of all, the issuer must place a listing application on the Binance Chain community forum, providing answers to a number of questions relating to the innovativeness of the project, its scope and other characteristics.

After that, the issuer must make a deposit in the amount of 1,000 BNB within two days, which will be returned later. Note that the listing of an asset on Binance DEX must be approved by at least half of the validators.
