The Malta cryptocurrency exchange, which backs the BNB asset as its native asset, announced yesterday that it had opened trading of bitcoin, ether, and USDT against Yuan. The declaration arrived atop China’s ban on the trading of cryptocurrencies, catering to those who wanted to remain invested in the non-sovereign assets nevertheless.Last night, @Binance Launches P2P Trading, starting with China.

We will expand the service to other regions soon.Anything that makes it easier to get #crypto.https://t.co/GX1sPK8Hql— CZ Binance (@cz_binance) October 9, 2019Binance CEO Changpeng “CZ” Zhao later claimed that they were looking at “significant P2P trading volumes,” connecting the news to the rise in BNB price. The cryptocurrency touched its session high right after CZ’s statement. An hour after that, he admitted that Binance P2P trading services are compatible with WeChat and AliPay, two of China’s leading payment services.However, CZ later clarified that Binance has not partnered with either of those firms but is merely enabling them in P2P transactions for payment.“Some confusion by some news outlets,” stated CZ. “Binance is not working directly with WeChat or Alipay. However, users are able to use them in P2P transactions for payment. Still not a small feat. But words/meaning get twisted as they are passed around.”
