Binance Adds DOGE, XRP, SOL to FDUSD with Zero Maker Fees

Key Takeaways:

Binance adds five new trading pairs, including DOGE/FDUSD and SOL/FDUSD.

Zero maker fees on FDUSD trading pairs until further notice.

TRY is specified as a fiat currency, not to be confused with digital currencies.

Leading cryptocurrency exchange Binance announced today the addition of five new trading pairs, effective September 7, 2023, at 08:00 UTC. The new pairs include DOGE/FDUSD, SOL/FDUSD, TOMO/TRY, UNFI/TRY, and XRP/FDUSD.

New Trading Pairs

The introduction of these new trading pairs is a significant move for Binance, as it broadens the range of assets that can be traded on the platform. DOGE/FDUSD and SOL/FDUSD are particularly noteworthy, given the increasing popularity of Dogecoin (DOGE) and Solana (SOL) in the crypto market.

Zero Maker Fees on FDUSD Pairs

In a move likely aimed at encouraging trading activity, Binance has also announced that users will enjoy zero maker fees on FDUSD trading pairs “until further notice.” This could potentially increase liquidity and trading volumes for the newly introduced FDUSD pairs.

TRY as Fiat Currency

The announcement also clarified that TRY, which is part of the TOMO/TRY and UNFI/TRY pairs, is a fiat currency and “does not represent any other digital currencies.” This clarification is crucial for traders who might otherwise confuse TRY with a digital asset.

Implications for Traders

The addition of these new trading pairs and the zero maker fee policy could attract more traders to the Binance platform, especially those interested in diversifying their portfolios with DOGE, SOL, TOMO, UNFI, and XRP. However, traders should be aware that the zero maker fee is a temporary measure and should keep an eye out for any updates from Binance regarding this policy.

Zero Fees and Crypto Price

Zero fees are a common business strategy to boost liquidity. Both Binance and other cryptocurrency exchanges have employed this ‘zero fee’ approach. As reported by on May 18, 2023, Coinbase announced significant updates to its premium membership service, Coinbase One. Notably, the platform will now offer zero trading fees and enhanced staking rewards to its members.

However, it’s important to note that an increase in liquidity does not necessarily translate to a rise in price.

Seeing red? FUD that! Here’s what you should have bought instead of Bitcoin last week

We’ve argued many times in the past that the correlation between Bitcoin’s price and the market capitalization of hundreds of altcoins makes very little sense.

Whether you buy into the idea that Bitcoin is digital gold, or a payment mechanism, or both, it doesn’t have a whole lot in common with Ethereum, Shiba Inu, or FTX’s native exchange token.

Well, whether we like it or not, big moves in the price of Bitcoin define crypto markets.

Before Bitcoin slid from the latest all-time high above $68,000 back to the region of $55,000 last week, dragging most altcoins down with it, the crypto market had seen six straight weeks of virtually uninterrupted growth.

But as soon as the market turns red, as it did last week, many traders tend to succumb to three old enemies: Fear, uncertainty, and doubt (FUD).

Which is why we say: FUD that. Experienced crypto traders know that periods of correction can also present profit opportunities. And Cointelegraph Markets Pro’s own VORTECS™ Score found six of the ten best-performing altcoins last week, even as the market took a dive.

Unparalleled bull runs, lookalike corrections?

The VORTECS™ Score is a machine learning-powered trading algorithm that compares historic and current market conditions in digital asset markets to aid crypto traders’ decision-making.

The model takes in a host of quantitative indicators — including price movement, social sentiment, and trading activity — to arrive at a score that assesses whether the present conditions are historically bullish, neutral, or bearish for over 200 cryptocurrencies.

A VORTECS™ Score of 80 or above is considered confidently bullish for the next 12-72 hours. Assets that achieve such scores exhibit arrangements of key trading and social variables that in the past came before significant price increases.

The table below shows ten altcoins that delivered significant return on investment between Nov. 11 and 18 — the week that saw Bitcoin plunge from $68,000 to $58,000.

In bold are those tokens that hit a VORTECS™ Score of 80 or higher before reaching their peak price of the week.

Six of the best crypto trading opportunities

Six out of ten of the week’s top performing assets exhibited patterns of trading and social behavior that closely resembled historically bullish combinations before they rallied.

  • The Sandbox (SAND)
  • coin (CRO)
  • Voyager (VGX)
  • Koinos Network (KOIN)
  • TomoChain (TOMO)
  • AirSwap (AST)

Six out of ten is significant, given that the overall number of tokens that yielded any gains has been very modest.

What does it say about the nature of the crypto market? When things are bullish, altcoins can rally for an infinite number of reasons, oftentimes simply due to a favorable macro context and exuberance taking over the market.

But when much of the market is going south, analysis suggests that tokens supported by robust trading activity and high social sentiment are most likely to buck the trend.

These are also the times when traders need reliable data analytics to inform their strategies the most. When the floor is lava, it helps to have an extra pair of algorithmic eyes sifting through millions of data points to identify potential safe havens.

This is exactly what the VORTECS™ Score is trained to do.
