Binance US is launching today. Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao has confirmed that Binance Coin (BNB) will be listed as well as Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin and XRP.
Binance, one of the world’s leading crypto exchange is opening its platform for the American market today, on September 18. In the official post published by CEO Catherine Coley, it was noted that Binance US will support the biggest coins in the market and will offer to make US Dollar deposits as well. The blog post reads:
“We will be accepting inbound transfers of BTC, ETH, XRP, BCH, LTC, USDT, and USD upon appropriate account verification.”
But what’s about Binance Coin (BNB)? It was not mentioned in the official statement which seems to be rather weird, especially for BNB holders who have been definitely waiting to see it among the listed coins.
Nevertheless, now it has become obvious that BNB holders have nothing to worry about as Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao, better known as just CZ, has posted a tweet revealing that BNB is to be traded on Binance US as soon as it launches.

There is just a couple of hours left until the launch of Binance US. And it is known that until November 1, no trading fees will be charged. Nevertheless, later individual users will have to pay a trading fee of 0.10% per transaction.
Meanwhile, Binance US will be unavailable for the residents of about 13 states of the country Alabama, Alaska, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Louisiana, New York, North Carolina, Texas, Vermont, and Washington. Nevertheless, it is expected that the platform will be gradually entering new states and expanding its geography in the future.
