From what we have seen so far, Binance likes getting early on projects like these which is probably why it decided to publicly list this coin.
As one of the leading cryptocurrency exchanges out there, Binance has recently taken a lot of steps to improve its operation, products and services. In what many saw as an attempt to broaden its audience base, the firm also acquired a company which is basically the largest crypto data website out there, CoinMarketCap.
Even though the amount expended on the takeover was not disclosed in the media, Binance is believed to have spent more than $400 million as per media reports. The takeover was confirmed by both the exchange and the crypto market data aggregator.
