Changpeng Zhao (aka CZ), CEO at Binance has surprised and delighted crypto-exchange fans by inviting members of the XRP Community to offer their top pitches for why they think he ought to couple the digital asset with every other coin on the exchange.
CZ tweeted the invite on Sunday, showing his fun-loving side and how in-touch he is with the crypto-currency community.
The xrp base shill is strong. Let's get it out of your system, and put all your shills under this one tweet, and let's see how much we get. https://t.co/usiISCtuSj
— CZ Binance (@cz_binance) November 18, 2018
This frisky tweet is in response to the XRP community’s endless calls to make their currency the standard. They constantly bombard CZ’s tweets with comments to this effect, so it’ll come as no surprise that he has decided to answer back at last, albeit rather tongue-in-cheek!
A Plethora of Memes
After tweeting, a plethora of memes were sent to CZ from the XRP community to try and convince him that this really was the best and only way forward in their eyes!
According to one follower, going by the name of Bank XRP, who responded to CZ’s tweet earlier today, there are four main reasons why:
- Environmentally friendly
- Low Transaction Fees
CZ wowed and delighted his followers even further by also tweeting a LinkedIn link to his witty, step-by-step guide on exactly how to get your coin listed on Binance.com.
Tips include advising against trying to put pressure on Binance to list your coin and suggests that the best way to get your coin listed would be to work hard on your project and that keeping Binance updated will highly increase the chance of being listed.
As CEO of Binance.com, CZ also shows his followers that lack of greed also prevails – all listing fees paid to Binance.com will be donated to charity.
Having taken over Ethereum as the second largest cryptocurrency in the world, XRP investors suggest that Binance should couple all its cryptocurrencies with XRP. For those of you who may not be aware, after overtaking Ethereum for the second time in one month, after a tense battle, XRP has now succeeded in achieving second place right behind Bitcoin!
This has all been largely aided by Ripple’s efforts to increase its customer base over the past few months. Further banks are joining the RippleNet where XRP is employed as a base currency using xRapid in cross-border funds transfers.
CIMB is Ripple’s most recent addition. Boasting its ranking as the fifth bank in ASEAN, CIMB Group enters RippleNet and implements Ripple’s tech. This will ensure that the bank provides its customers with instantaneous cross-border payments. Ripple reports that CIMB is among the first banks to leverage blockchain technology in an area where payments are notoriously inefficient and slow.
Also Rooting for XRP
The reasons why members of the XRP community are convinced that XRP should be the base on Binance is that it is now a base on the XRP United Exchange and also on the CoinField Exchange.
Weiss Ratings, which is among the largest rating companies, Tweeted back in August that they also agree that XRP should be the base.

XNO Token of Xeno NFT Hub listed on Bithumb Korea Exchange
Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 25th January, 2021, // ChainWire //
Xeno Holdings Limited (xno.live ), a blockchain solutions company based in Hong Kong, has announced the listing of its ecosystem utility token XNO on the ‘Bithumb Korea’ cryptocurrency exchange on January 21st 2021.
Xeno NFT Hub (market.xno.live ), developed by Xeno Holdings, enables easy minting of digital items into NFTs while also providing a marketplace where anyone can securely trade NFTs.
The Xeno NFT Hub project team includes former members of the technology project Yosemite X based in San Francisco and professionals such as Gabby Dizon who is a games industry expert and NFT space influencer based in Southeast Asia.
NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.
NFTs are already being actively traded in markets globally. For…
Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?
2020 has been an incredible year for crypto as investors have generated windfall profits and crypto projects have seen their businesses gain the spotlight they’ve been looking for. While Bitcoin has received most of the attention after major institutional investors announced they were accumulating the increasingly scarce asset, many altcoins have also seen their fair share of glory. When looking at all the big winners of the past year, the first project that probably comes to mind is Chainlink, having appreciated by more than 550% YTD and now valued at over $4.5 billion. But, the actual biggest winner of the year is HEX with a YTD return of over 5,000%.
I mention both of the above projects as they have each taken slightly different paths to achieve greatness. Chainlink has devoted resources toward building a fundamentally sound business with many strategic partnerships while HEX has spent vast sums of money on marketing and promotion. Both approaches are valid, but one thing is certain, it is absolutely imperative for crypto projects to let the crypto community know what makes them special. Of course, one of the reasons that makes crypto so valuable is the powerful blockchain technology that most projects are utilizing.
Cryptocurrency vs. Blockchain Technology
It’s important to make a distinction between blockchain technology and cryptocurrency. Although they are often used interchangeably, they are different. Blockchain technology and crypto were both created after the 2008 financial crisis, but cryptocurrency…

He also added “This does not mean we will prohibit other types of NFTs from our ecosystem However, it simply means that XENO’s efforts as a company will be targeted into these verticals initially as a cohesive business approach.”
Development and Procurement Lead, Gabby Dizon explained, “Despite our initial focus, we found ourselves with a unique opportunity to host some of the works of Mr. Hiro Yamagata. We are collaborating with Japanese artist Hiro Yamagata to enshrine some of his artwork into NFTs.”
