Crypto exchange Binance continues its development spree by announcing a new P2P trading facility making BTC, ETH, and USDT available against the Chinese Yuan.
Crypto exchange Binance is on an aggressive development spree this year. On Wednesday, October 9, Binance has launched its new P2P trading facility for trading cryptocurrencies against the Chinese Yuan. Currently, this facility is only available for Android users. However, it has promised to roll-out this facility on iOS and web interface as well. In its announcement, the crypto exchange said:
“Binance has launched P2P trading functionality with BTC, ETH and USDT available for trading against CNY (Chinese Yuan). Access to P2P trading will be initially provided to Android users (Version: 1.12.1) that have Binance accounts registered for over 30 days. Please download or update to the latest Binance Android app for access to this service. We will slowly roll out this service to iOS and web interface users going forward”.
Soon after the company announcement, CEO Changpeng Zhao took it to Twitter to announce Binance plans to take its P2P trading facility further beyond the Chinese markets.
Last night, @Binance Launches P2P Trading, starting with China. Most of CT probably can't use it yet, but 1.4 billion people can. We will expand the service to other regions soon.

In addition to the P2P trading platform, Binance is also working on the launch of an OTC trading platform in China by this month.
