Binance is now available for US customers along with Binance Coin, the exchange's native token. The US-based arm started accepting account registrations at 8 a.m. ET.
As reported by U.Today, Binance.US was expected to open its doors to 37 US states, excluding Washington and New York. However, the exchange’s CEO Catherine Coley claimed that they would be able to hammer out regulatory uncertainties in the future.
Binance announced that it would support six cryptocurrencies (Bitcoin, Tether USDT and four top altcoins). BNB, the exchange’s native token, was on the list of potential assets it was exploring for future listings.
However, BNB, which has been struggling to pick up steam as of recently, did end up among the basked of coins that will be available for trading from the get-go. As a result, its price spiked by approximately 11 percent over the last 24 hours.
