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 GateHub hack that took place earlier this month resulted in the exchange losing nearly 23 million XRP worth approximately $9 million. However, Whale Alert, a tracker of large crypto transactions, alerted the community of these stolen funds being moved to various different exchanges.

One of these exchanges was identified to be Bitfinex, which received 400,025 XRP on June 16 at 10:57:22 UTC. The sender’s address was r4hyDYXv7iV3oCahxQzqYYfgxwyBx3AyMN and was identified to be from the GateHub hack 2019. The receiver’s address was identified to be Bitfinex’s- r9o9MerrS7d2GAEs6JPj4v4JcvZAJNtLUY. The hash rate of the transaction was 21124F7818A2903E9750456D603CC9AACC9DBE6CE2EF0AA191C734339B4CA682 and the transaction details were as follows:

Another transaction was noted to take place to the Bitfinex wallet address where 100,000 XRP was transferred from another identified GateHub hack address. The identified Bitfinex’s wallet address was rDcz7P9YMpffLKhRBovTzhUr3wKtk3y9q7. This wallet address was quick to transfer the funds immediately to another exchange, OKEx. OKEx previously received 3,000 XRP from the stolen funds to an identified OKEx address- rUzWJkXyEtT8ekSSxkBYPqCvHpngcy6Fks. The hash rate of the transaction was noted to be BE97F68A20E996A2E1A37228DCBD45A1F26E8E2B3A842E9FCFFF7721157C1C37 and following were the transaction details:

The stolen funds were moved to another prominent exchange, Binance, and CZ was swift to inform Whale Alert that he would look into it. However, the crypto users did not find any relief about these funds going to other exchanges as the exchanges did not respond to the large transactions.
