Binance introduces FDUSD trading pair

On 3 August, Binance made an official announcement to introduce new trading pairs, BTC/FDUSD and ETH/FDUSD. According to the announcement, the pairing will be available on the platform starting on 4 August.

The decision came shortly after the Binance CEO discussed the new stablecoin and the importance of diversifying stablecoins within the platform. The pairs also followed a period wherein BUSD minting was suspended due to regulatory issues.

During this time, the platform shifted its focus to TUSD, resulting in a surge in trade volume. 

However, the recent move indicates the company’s willingness to explore and incorporate various stablecoins into its offerings.

The stablecoin will also be included in the zero-fee Bitcoin trading program along with the trading pair’s announcement. This would allow users to trade BTC/FDUSD without incurring any fees.

FDSUD 24-hour volume declines

As per CoinMarketCap data, FDUSD was ranked 13th among stablecoins in market capitalization at press time. Its market cap was approximately $258.4 million.

In the past 24 hours leading up to this moment, FDUSD experienced substantial growth, witnessing an increase of over 25% in its market cap. However, its trading volume had decreased significantly, dropping by over 79%.

Binance thwarts zero-address scam attack

When Binance announced the introduction of the new trading pair for FDUSD, the platform also encountered a hacking attempt involving another stablecoin. According to a statement by Binance’s CEO, Changpeng Zhao, the hacker tried to execute a zero-transfer scam attack.

However, the platform’s operators promptly identified the issue after executing a 20 million USDT transaction. Fortunately, Binance acted swiftly and managed to freeze the USDT funds in time, thwarting the hacker’s attempt.
