The Malta-based exchange Binance has announced that it will launch soon a new platform named ‘Binance KR’ in the Korean market.
According to a blog post published on 31 March, the new exchange will be launched on Binance Cloud. It will provide “the market’s deepest spot trading liquidity, most robust matching engine, and most advanced state-of-the-art security, custody, and risk controls.”
In addition, Binance KR will support Binance KRW (BKRW), which is a South Korean Won (KRW)-backed stablecoin.
Deposits with KRW
The launch of the new exchange came after Binance announced purchasing BxB; the fintech firm behind the KRW-backed stablecoin KRWb.
Jiho Kang, Co-founder of Binance, said:
“We are committed to bringing a fully compliant world-class digital asset exchange to the Korean market via Binance Cloud and BKRW. We are honored to partner with Binance to work towards our mutual mission of increasing the freedom of money together.”
The new exchange KR will open for registration on 2 April, while trading will start as of 4 April.
