The world’s leading cryptocurrency exchange, Binance, has announced that it has listed stablecoin trading pairs for NEO. This latest development comes as the NEO community gets ready for its first meetup in Zurich, Switzerland, scheduled for next week.
Binance Offers NEO/USDC And NEO/PAX Trading Pairs
Binance announced on its official blog that it is offering trading pairs for NEO and Cardano on its platform. The two cryptocurrencies will be available for trading against the stablecoins USD Coin and Paxos. According to the official statement, the trading pairs have been made available yesterday, March 27th.
This latest development means that holders of PAX and USDC would be able to purchase NEO tokens on Binance. Prior to the support of these stablecoins, users had to use other assets such as USDT and BTC to buy NEO on the crypto exchange. The addition of USDC and PAX support is definitely expected to increase NEO’s liquidity on Binance.
NEO Launches Seattle Office Headed by Ex-Microsoft Exec
NEO has opened a new office in Seattle, which is headed by a former Microsoft executive, John deVadoss. The NEO Global Development (NGD) has already started recruiting and it’s expected to help NEO to expand its operations in the United States.
The founder of NEO, Da Hongfei, while talking about the NGD Seattle noted that the United States base would play a crucial role in the cryptocurrency achieving its number one objective of becoming the leading blockchain by 2020. According to Da, being the number one doesn’t have to do with market cap or trading volume, but rather make NEO the most favorable blockchain for developers to create dApps.
NEO co-founder, Erik Zhang stated that “Seattle has huge developer resources and a strong atmosphere of innovation, and NEO has always placed great importance in technology development.”
John deVadoss during an interview stated that he is very impressed by the NEO economy, adding that he hopes to help the blockchain to achieve its objective of building a healthy and sustainable smart economy. He said that NGD Seattle is aiming to construct excellent frameworks that would allow developers to create applications on the NEO platform.
The former Microsoft exec talked about his time at the tech giant and how much value he created for the company during his time there. deVadoss maintained that the NGD team is aiming to reach out to developers and hear their thoughts regarding how best to serve them.
