Like ANKR, Your Token Can ‘DEX’ Its Way to Binance
Learn how your blockchain project can get listed on Binance, just like ANKR, the first winner of our BEP2 Community Listing Program.
Binance congratulates ANKR, the inaugural winner of the BEP2 Community Listing Program, for getting listed on our cryptocurrency exchange. We encourage blockchain projects around the world to be part of Binance DEX, and have the opportunity to showcase their potential and product strength, and, just like ANKR, get the chance to be considered and listed on Binance.com.
UPDATE: As of August 13, Binance updated the terms of the BEP2 Community Listing Program. Read here for more details.
Power to the People: From Chain to DEX to Binance.com
For many blockchain projects, listing on Binance.com is considered a milestone that gets them the attention of more than 10 million Binance users. And, when the community-led Binance DEX launched three months ago, this gave new opportunities for projects and their communities to show their enthusiasm for their respective tokens and missions.
That’s why Binance launched the BEP2 Community Listing Program in June. The program gives Binance DEX-listed projects the chance to also become listed on Binance.com. Projects that exhibit credible and robust daily trading volumes, as well as strong community support on Binance DEX, are also considered for listing on Binance.com.
The beauty of the opportunity presented on Binance DEX lies in its decentralized nature. It’s easy for blockchain projects to create and issue their tokens on the community-made Binance Chain, the underlying technology behind Binance DEX. The community has the final word on how DEX operates from approving listing applications to trading tokens on the decentralized exchange.
If your project has a strong community and product, it could also be heard on DEX. Binance listens through the BEP2 Community Listing Program as well as more activities that support DEX. This is how ANKR came to win the community listing program.
During the first round of the BEP2 Community Listing Program, some DEX projects reached significant daily trading volumes on their respective trading pairs on Binance DEX -- the main requirement for being considered as a contender for the program.
Out of the eligible projects, Binance selected ANKR as the project that it will list on the exchange, after screening the Binance DEX-listed contenders based on a series of listing criteria, including their listing applications for Binance.com. And on July 23, Binance opened trading pairs of ANKR/BNB, ANKR/BTC, ANKR/USDT, ANKR/TUSD, ANKR/PAX, and ANKR/USDC.
We Thank The People: Binance DEX Grows into Leading Decentralized Exchange
In part of increased activity brought by the BEP2 Community Listing Program, Binance DEX has steadily grown into a leading decentralized exchange in the three months after its launch. As of today, there are 67 tokens listed on Binance DEX, trading across 77 trading pairs on the BNB, BTCB, and USDⓈ trading markets.
We are humbled by the robust community support for Binance DEX and the projects listed on the exchange. And to sustain that momentum, the Binance DEX community has initiated over 60 campaigns since its launch, with some campaigns being done in collaboration with Binance. As a result, around 100,000 Binance DEX Wallet addresses were part of trading activities during the first round of the BEP2 Community Listing Program.
This has delivered significant growth for Binance DEX during its first quarter of operations. We’ve seen as high as $9,515,934 USD in daily trading volumes, $55,107,724 USD in weekly trading volumes, and $124,654,185 USD in monthly trading volumes. And in the past month, the list of projects on Binance DEX grew from 19 as of June 19 to 54 as of July 19 -- representing 284% growth!
In just a short time, Binance DEX has made waves as a leading decentralized exchange, reaching trading volume rankings as high as No. 54 on CoinGecko (June 18, 2019) and No. 72 on CoinMarketCap (June 19, 2019).
We are very thankful to the Binance DEX community for your continued support for this decentralized revolution.
