Other pairs of XRP had been available to trade on Binance as well, like XRP/BTC and XRP/USDT, making it one of the few altcoins available to trade with another altcoin. Meanwhile, most other altcoins like ETH, BNB, TRX, and EOS are also available for Margin Trading, with Bitcoin [BTC] and Tether [USDT].
The daily interest rate available for XRP is 0.0200% with a borrowing limit of 540000 for VIP 0 users. The minimum withdrawal amount for XRP is 0.5, whereas the XRP-pegged token on Binance reported a minimum withdrawal limit of 0.14. The withdrawal fee for XRP is 0.25 XRP, and for its BEP2 token, the fee is 0.068 XRP.
Binance recently issued XRP on its Decentralized exchange [DEX] on 11 October, and it was listed as XRP-BF2. Pegged one-to-one to XRP, the exchange minted 10 million of these tokens for the DEX. XRP is only the second cryptocurrency that is pegged to its variant and has been added to the DEX, after Bitcoin’s BTCB.
Binance has been offering options to its customers all over the globe, with it recently announcing the availability of Futures and Margin trading for sub-accounts, a year after it added support for sub-accounts. This feature will allow sub-account holders to trade on the VIP level, enabling them to borrow interests from their master accounts. Additionally, the VIP limits would act as borrowing limits for these sub-accounts.
