Binance CEO Changpeng “CZ” Zhao says the new exchange fulfills the company’s mission of building a decentralized future and an open global financial system powered by cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology.
“With no central custody of funds, Binance DEX offers far more control over your own assets. We hope this brings a new level of freedom to our community. We will work closely with projects and teams to grow the entire ecosystem.”
Binance DEX has also introduced a new token on the exchange that’s pegged 1:1 with BTC. The token, called BTCB, is designed to give crypto traders an easy way to buy and sell Bitcoin on Binance’s decentralized exchange.
Binance says it plans to release similar pegged tokens for other major crypto assets in the future.
