One of the largest cryptocurrency exchanges by trading volume, Binance has launched a new cryptocurrency exchange in Singapore.

According to the report, customers of the platform will able to purchase Bitcoin [BTC] using Singapore dollars [SGD]. Only very few pairs are available for customers compared with the Binance’s main exchange.

According to the website, there are three steps provided for new customers - creating an account with Binance Singapore, linking their Xfers account, and starting to trade bitcoin according to customers willing.
A spokesperson told TechCrunch, “Binance is excited to bring world-class blockchain technology to Singapore and we look forward to showcasing Binance’s tier one safety and security measures to the world. BTC/SGD is the initial pair Binance Singapore is offering with the soft launch and there may be more pairs added as regulations allow.”
