Major Headlines

 

Binance Will Donate All Listing Fees to Charity

The CEO of Binance announced that the company will be redesigning how coins are listed to their exchange platform. Previously, listings cost upwards of $1 million. However, now the platform will be donating all listing fees to charity. In addition, there will be no minimum fee, and  developers are given the power to name the amount they would like to pay. The value chosen will not influence whether or not a coin is accepted, and this will have no effect on which coins are given the opportunity to be listed on the exchange: “Binance will continue to use the same high standard for the listing review process.”

 

Quixxi Simplifies Crypto-Commerce

Quixxi is in their second week of token sale, and hopes to make a big impact on cryptocurrency use cases by streamlining the existing technology in ways that will make it more appealing for the average citizen. The platform gives users the ability to hold or send cryptocurrency by using an email address, and security is maintained by decentralizing users’ private keys. It connects Ethereum wallet addresses and is designed to “bypass the complex nature of crypto wallets.” The system includes a “Smart Payment” function that they hope will allow merchants to more easily accept cryptocurrency payments for the goods or services. Their primary goal is “to remove some of the barriers faced by global Crypto-Commerce.”
