Will More Exchanges Be Next to List DGB?
In a surprise announcement earlier today, Binance revealed that it will list DigiByte (DGB). The new listing was revealed via Binance's blog and social media accounts. Trading will begin later today on the platform at 2:00 PM (UTC). DigiByte will be listed in 3 different trading pairs including DGB/BTC, DGB/BUSD, and of course DGB/BNB.
DigiByte Climbs the Rankings
It appears that DGB was already experiencing a pretty good day with a 22% increase in the past 24 hours. It is currently trading at $0.021335 or 0. 00000226 BTC and will likely continue its rise in the near future.
It is currently ranked #35 on CoinMarketCap just below OKB and Dogecoin. Should this rally continue, we can easily see DGB in the top 30, if not further.
Binance and Digibyte
The exchange's announcement surprised many, considering that Jared Tate DigiByte's founder had a public spat with Binance and its CEO CZ. The public disagreement was supposedly over Binance's supposed listing fee. While this was back in 2019, Tate criticized CZ and also Justin Sun the founder of TRON and owner of the exchange Poloniex. This might have been a factor in the delisting of DigiByte on Poloniex.
In the listing announcement, Binance have made note that the listing fee was 0 BNB. This might be a possible acknowledgement of the previous disagreement.
Regardless, it seems that any bad blood between DigiByte and Binance is over. Other exchanges might follow Binance's lead and choose to list DGB as well.
