Binance enables conversions of selected stablecoins to BUSD
The announcement stated,
“The ratio to convert PAX, USDC, and TUSD into BUSD will be set at 1:1 with zero fees. The ratio to convert USDT into BUSD will vary based on the current market price.”
With the purpose of preventing market manipulation, Binance stated that it would implement a pricing limit of ±1% on the market price within the first 15 minutes after trading starts. The Malta-based crypto exchange had launched its native stablecoin earlier in 2019, pegged at 1:1 to the US dollar in association with stablecoin issuer Paxos. Post the recent announcement, the users will be able to convert from stablecoins, with no fees.
Binance has been in the news lately for its series of announcements and adding support to numerous fiat currencies.
