- Binance US Exchange has finally listed DogeCoin on its multi cryptocurrency exchange
- The move was made by continuous attempts from the Dogecoin community to list the coin
- Binance listing Dogecoin goes to prove the legitimate interest of the community to move from a joke currency to one with actual day-to-day use
Binance.US has announced Thursday the listing of dogecoin under the DOGE/USDT trading pair. For now, only deposits are open until trading is live at 1:00 UTC.
“We will continue evaluating coins, tokens and trading pairs to offer on Binance.US in accordance with our Digital Asset Risk Assessment Framework, community feedback, and market demand,” the announcement detailed.
Dogecoin came into being as a joke currency after Billy Markus, a developer from Portland, Oregon, decided it would be funny to create a cryptocurrency after the iconic ‘doge’ meme. As it turned out, the joke outplayed itself by making its way up among the top-30 cryptocurrencies in circulation.
Binance.US has been rapidly listing new altcoins since launching last month. Earlier this week, the exchange added BUSD and IOTA (IOTA). In total, Binance.US now has twenty cryptocurrencies listed across USD, USDT and BTC markets.
