Paxos Standard To Be A Base Token on Binance

An exchange is only as good as its liquidity. There are hundreds of exchanges to choose from, and many have chosen Binance, which was originally based in China and funded through an ICO. Binance is far and away the largest exchange in the world by volume and users, most days almost doubling the volume of its nearest competitor.

As we reported yesterday, Binance is in the process of creating a combined stablecoin market they’re calling USDⓈ, and now within that market Paxos Standard is to be a base token, CCN has learned.

At time of writing, PAX was still only trading against USDT in the market, but according to a press release received Tuesday morning, several other pairs will soon be added to the exchange.

When trading commences, PAX will have six trading pairs listed on Binance’s USDⓈ Markets against BNB, BTC, ETH, XRP, EOS and XLM.

USDT is still by far the most used stablecoin on Binance, but it seems they are testing the waters with other tokens. The situation prior to the addition of the above-named pairs was that the user would have to convert PAX to USDT in order to trade on most of the pairs in the USDⓈ market listings. While this is still somewhat the case following the move, it demonstrates that Binance is looking to experiment. And, for what it’s worth, at time of writing PAX was trading at a premium against USDT – 2 cents. Over the course of $1 million that adds up to a $20,000 arbitrage opportunity. For its part, Paxos’ Dorothy Chang, head of Marketing, says that clients who want to see more pairs should use the Pax token on the exchange and request more pairs be added:

More will be added according to customer demand, so if people want more- they should keep asking Binance to add more pairs to trade with PAX.

Trading of the new PAX pairs should open on the morning of November 29th. If the volume on these new pairs is significant enough, Binance will add more pairs, as it has done with USDT. There is still no word on when or if Binance will integrate USDC or GUSD. To be fair, these tokens are both issued by competing exchanges – in the case of USDC, the creator, Circle, owns Poloniex, which is senior in age to Binance and would love to unseat it as the king of exchanges. But Paxos is issued by itBit, which also operates an exchange.

The creation of the USDⓈ Market on Binance opens speculation that Binance may be working on its own stablecoin offering. They certainly have the scratch to back it, but historically they have shied away from too much interaction with the banking system, preferring to be a clearinghouse and premier trading platform for multiple cryptocurrencies.

Crypto Arbitrage Today: BTC, XRP, ETH, BCH, EOS, LTC

A new day has dawned upon cryptocurrency markets, which means arbitrage trading takes center stage. There are numerous options available today, although most of them involve the use of YoBit once again. That doesn’t mean other less profitable options shouldn’t be explored either, as there are various ways of making money. EOS (YoBit / Poloniex / Binance) Buying EOS on any exchange that is not YoBit will yield some big profits throughout most of today. Prices on Poloniex, Binance, Bitfinex, KuCoin, and HitBTC are all 2.3% lower compared to YoBit. Depending on when the EOS are sold, profits of nearly 3% are not impossible to achieve either. It is a very easy flip between exchanges with no additional efforts involved whatsoever. Bitcoin Cash (Kraken / HitBTC / Poloniex) It doesn’t happen all that often a relatively appealing gap exists for Bitcoin Cash on major exchanges. Buying on Kraken will allow speculators to score quick profits when selling BCH on either Poloniex or HitBTC. For those who want to take a small gamble and move the money to YOBit, profits of up to 2.2% can be realized in rather quick succession. Ethereum (Koineks/ Polnoiex / Paribu) Selling Ethereum on Poloniex can be quite profitable today depending on where one buys the currency from. Exchanges such as Paribu, Koineks, and Bitstamp all seem to have lower prices compared to this exchange. This allows for a quick 0.9% profit. Selling ETH on YoBit can earn users up to % profit, although it will mainly depend on the latter platform’s overall liquidity. Litecoin (Kraken / Livecoin / YoBit) All of the Litecoin arbitrage opportunities for the day involve the use of YoBit when selling the assets. However, for buying Litecoin at a cheaper price, there are nearly a dozen different options. Platforms to buy from, including the likes of VeBitcoin, CEX, Livecoin, Poloniex, Bitstamp, and BTCTurk. Those latter two allow for profits of up to 3.3%, which makes them slightly more appealing. Bitcoin (YoBit / Bitstamp / OKEx) It is somewhat unusual to see YoBit offer numerous Bitcoin arbitrage options at this time. More specifically, the price for BTC on YoBit is at least 2% higher compared to Livecoin, Poloniex, and others. In the case of Bitstamp and BtcTurk, there is a near 3% gap to exploit later today. Very interesting opportunities, all things considered, although it can only happen if there is sufficient BTC liquidity across all platforms. XRP (Bitstamp / Gate / Poloniex) An arbitrage opportunity for XRP is always worth exploring, simply because it is one of the most liquid markets regardless of the exchanges involved. Buying XRP on Bitstamp and selling in either Gate or Poloniex will net traders a quick 1% profit for the day. It allows for some good money to be made when moving a few thousand XRP between platforms. Information provided by Arbing Tool. Disclaimer: This is not trading or investment advice.
