Earlier this month, Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao (CZ) revealed that the exchange will be launching its Singapore arm before the month comes to an end. He didn’t give the precise date for this, or any further details about the fiat-to-crypto exchange service.
The development of the platform which began last year entered its beta testing phase in September. The following month, Vertex Ventures, a subsidiary of Temasek Holdings — an investment company based in Singapore and owned by the government — revealed that it will be investing in Binance Singapore.
Two days ago, the exchange announced the launch of its decentralized trading platform (DEX). This announcement came just one week after the native blockchain that will power it, Binance Chain, went live. Although now live, trading on the Binance DEX is expected to begin on a much later day.
