Crypto exchange Binance is today listing MakerDAO's governance token Maker (MKR) and decentralized stablecoin DAI.
The exchange supports eight trading pairs for the tokens — MKR/BNB, MKR/BTC, MKR/BUSD, MKR/USDT, DAI/BNB, DAI/BTC, DAI/BUSD, and DAI/USDT.
The listings come amid the decentralized finance (DeFi) boom. "DeFi is a hot topic for the blockchain industry this year. We received a lot of requests from our users [for the listings]," a Binance spokesperson told The Block.

Decentralized exchange (DEX) trading volumes also surpassed the $1 billion mark last month.
