Binance announced Friday that it would be adding a few new USD Coin pairs and moving its two existing USDC pairs into the combined stablecoin market called USDⓈ. Both ripple (XRP) and stellar (XLM) will have USD Coin pairs, in addition to their existing stablecoin pairs.
Around this time last year, many retail crypto investors subscribed to the economic theory that cryptocurrency hard forks — the ones that result in irreversible network splits and create new blockchains — were a net positive for their portfolios. “How could they not be?” they asked.
In what is becoming a disturbingly common occurrence, the bitcoin price on Friday set yet another fresh yearly low, slinking below the $3,200 mark for the first time in 2018. The flagship cryptocurrency’s move below $3,200 came shortly after 16:10 UTC, following an unsuccessful breakout attempt earlier in the week.
