At the time of reporting, ICON stands on the 65th position on Coinmarketcap with the market capitalization of $66,678,152. Moreover, the token is currently valued at $0.130 against USD. On the other side, ENJ is holding 67th position and trading at $0.084 against USD. Moreover, ENJ’s current market capitalization counts at $66,176,549.
Launched in Sept 2019, Binance US is still a new platform in crypto space but the exchange is quite active in terms of listing crypto assets on its trading platform. So far the exchange has listed NANO token, QTUM, VeChain (VET), Waves (WAVES), Dogecoin (DOGE), BUSD and IOTA, Algorand (ALGO), Zcash (ZEC), Dash (DASH), Chainlink (LINK) and RevenCoin (RCN).
Subsequently, the announcement comes in a wake of exchange’s revelation of what Binance had, is and will be doing on its US trading platform.
The exchange is evaluating more altcoins to list
Accordingly, Binance US CEO Catherine Coley ensured that the exchange is evaluating a few tokens to ensure they meet the listing criteria for Binance US. The list of tokens includes CELR, DCR, ENJ, FTM, ICX, IOST, KMD, OMG, ONE, ONT, REN, SNT, THETA, TOMO, TRX, XEM, XTZ, HBAR – few of which have already got listed by Binance US.
Miss Coley said in a statement,
“Our priority to continue exploring more digital asset listings for our users runs in parallel to our efforts to deliver a mobile application and more access to new states we currently do not operate.”
