Initially, the official blog stated that the aforementioned trading pairs would be added on December 7, 2018, at 10:00 AM UTC. However, a subsequent tweet from Binance’s official Twitter handle postponed the listing of trading pairs BNB/TUSD, BTC/TUSD, and ETH/TUSD to a “later date”, but the rest of the trading pairs will be listed as planned.

Binance’s tweet stated:

“UPDATE: Due to technical reasons, we will delay the listing of BNB/TUSD, BTC/TUSD, ETH/TUSD trading pairs to a later date. As such, we will keep the TUSD/BNB, TUSD/BTC, TUSD/ETH trading pairs listed until this date.”

To this, Changpeng Zhao, commonly known as CZ and the CEO and founder of the exchange tweeted:

“Apologies, found a minor bug with mixed base currencies in a market. Nothing too serious, but will fix it first.”

The official blog also stated:

“The existing TUSD/BNB, TUSD/BTC, TUSD/ETH trading pairs will be removed and delisted at 2018/12/08 10:00 AM (UTC). All existing orders in each order book will also be canceled at this time.”

TrueUSD is yet another stablecoin in the world of cryptocurrency that was launched by TrustToken asset tokenization platform, which was launched first on Bittrex platform.

The market cap of TUSD is currently holding steady at $202.35 million and ranks 25 on CoinMarketCap and has a total circulating supply of 199.48 million.

A Twitter user XareP tweeted:

“No.2 #XRP #xrpthebase should also be the base. How many times we need to remind you CZ??? Do the right thing man… @cz_binance @binance”

Another Twitter user commented:

“Makes it much easier to trade! Thanks!”

The Ripple-backed startup, XRPL Labs had been working on various technologies to develop the ecosystem. One of these technologies, XRPayment, was in its testing phase and has been finally launched and made available on the Google Play store and Apple app store.

Wietse Wind, the developer of XRPtipbot and one of the developers at XRPL Labs, informed the XRP community about this on his Twitter. Wind stated:

“Right on time! 🎉 🎉 🎉 Our XRPayments app was just accepted by Google and Apple. You can get the app now from the Apple iOS or Google Play store, and start accepting $XRP for payments in your physical store!”

The application received a lot of traction, especially from the XRP enthusiasts, however, one of the users pointed out an issue he encountered while using the application. Twitter user @almost_summer_ asked Wind:

“hi Wietse great job! just downloaded it, if i open the coinbase or uphold wallet app i can scan the QR but it does not auto fill in the amount of XRP to send. the XRPay web version did fill in the amounts. is that supposed to be like that?”

Wind replied to the user saying that the team wanted users to think about the amount they and perhaps tip the service. He also added:

“Some wallet apps can read a pre filled amount, and the web version implemented that, thus breaking support with some other clients. For this app we wanted 100% support, so we left out the pre filled amount feature for now.”

Wind and the team are also working on a ‘signing platform’ which will enable the users to sign and approve transactions from an application or the web application from any developer, without sharing their mnemonic, through a push message or QR code.
