Crypto exchange Binance has created the so-called "Innovation Zone" to allow only select users to trade new decentralized finance (DeFi) tokens.
This way, Binanceaims to filter out users based on their risk appetite. The exchange will ask two "very explicit" questions before letting a user enter the innovation zone.
First, whether a user is ready to take 50% or more loss of their principal capital, and second, whether the user is ready to take responsibility for that loss. If answers to these questions are no, then the user won't be allowed to trade new DeFi tokens that Binance would list in the near future.
"In order for exchanges to stay competitive, we need to list popular coins," said Binance CEO Changpeng "CZ" Zhao. "As always, DYOR (do your own research). Some of the projects may do incredibly well, but most will likely not."
According to The Block Research, all DeFi tokens have taken a hit in recent weeks after a record performance in July and August. Most of them are down by over 40% from their 30-day highs.
Delivering on a vision for an interoperable global standard for dollar digital currency, Circle and TRON have partnered to make USD Coin (USDC) available on the TRON blockchain, which has grown to more than 56 million accounts and nearly 2.5 billion transactions since its founding just four years ago. TRON is home to a broad ecosystem for digital assets in Asia and around the world, and the TRON community can now benefit from easy access to the world's fastest-growing, regulated dollar digital currency.
