Binance Cryptocurrency Exchange on Thursday announced the release of the genesis-block, without specifying the details of the current event.
“Today marks the birth of a new genesis block. Are you ready? ”Wrote the stock exchange on Twitter.
A genesis block is the first block released on the blockchain. Previously, CEO Binance Changpeng Zhao admitted that his company's decentralized exchange would run on the leading network by the end of the month.
“Hard day!” He commented on today's announcement.
Binance CFO Wei Zhou, in turn, clarified that the opening of the crypto-fiat exchange in Singapore announced last year will take place next week.
- “Next week we plan to launch a simple platform in Singapore for buying and selling cryptocurrency. It will become a new product because, with its help, users in Singapore will be elementary to buy and sell bitcoin for Singapore dollars, he said at the Blockchain Week in Paris. “We have plans for the United States, but I cannot disclose them now.”
The rate of Binance Coin against the background of these statements rose above $ 20, thus a little more approaching the historical maximum, recorded at about $ 24 in January last year.
