The Binance dollar stablecoin under the ticker symbol BUSD (Binance USD) will be circulated on the Ethereum blockchain, but its migration to the Binance Chain is planned in the future.
Paxos, the stablecoin operator Paxos Standard Token (PAX), is participating in the development of BUSD. According to the agreement, she will be engaged in the issue of stablecoin from Binance and the storage of fiat reserves, which will be used to provide it.
“Paxos is a leader in its field, so we are happy to work with them,” Changpeng Zhao, CZ, Binance CEO commented on the news.
Paxos also helped develop the HUSD stablecoin, which was created by a startup supported by another cryptocurrency exchange, Huobi. The tool was introduced in July this year.
BUSD can be bought and sold directly on the Paxos platform. Trading pairs with a new instrument on Binance.com will appear this month, there is no more specific date yet. It is known that at first it will be BUSD / BTC, BUSD / BNB and BUSD / XRP.
According to representatives of Binance and Paxos, they have already received permission from the New York State Department of Financial Services to service BUSD. Therefore, we can assume that New Yorkers will also have access to the instrument.
“We want to provide as many financial instruments as possible for users of the cryptocurrency ecosystem. Thanks to the release of BUSD, they now have a greater selection of stablecoins, ”added CZ.
Recall that earlier Binance introduced the stablecoin BGBP, secured by the British pound. The exchange also plans
Launch Venus stablecoin platform as an alternative to Facebook’s Libra cryptocurrency.
In addition, information appeared on the Binance website yesterday.

Currently, JEX tokens are being transferred from the Ethereum blockchain to its own Binance blockchain. After all the necessary swap procedures are completed, a token listing will take place on the decentralized Binance DEX exchange.
Among other advantages, users of the Binance JEX platform will be able to use JEX tokens to receive discounts on commissions and access to early testing of futures along with BNB tokens.
