Crypto-lands favorite meme-coin is hitting another U.S.-based exchange.
Binance.US has announced Thursday the listing of dogecoin under the DOGE/USDT trading pair. For now, only deposits are open until trading is live at 1:00 UTC.
First launched in 2014, the coin pays homage to popular internet memes around the Shiba Inus dog breed. As of press time, the cryptocurrency had a 24-hour transaction volume of $7.85 million, according to Messari.
The dogecoin announcement was preceded by a slew of other listings including IOTA, algorand (ALGO), zcash (ZEC), and dash (DASH).
The U.S. arm of the top cryptocurrency exchange by volume, Binance.US was announced earlier this year following the regulatory ban of U.S. customers in June. Customer onboarding began in September with six initial coin listings, including bitcoin, ethereum, XRP, bitcoin cash, litecoin, and tether.
