Major cryptocurrency exchange Binance has added Russian ruble pairs for its peer-to-peer trading platform.
On Feb. 11, the exchange announced that it has further expanded its services for Russia’s fiat currency. The platform is available via Binance’s mobile app for iOS and Android.
Users can now buy and sell for rubles through a network of peers with zero transaction fees:
- Tether (USDT)
- Bitcoin (BTC)
- Ethereum (ETH)
- Binance Coin (BNB)
Binance P2P was launched in October 2019 to facilitate fiat-to-crypto access across the world. While initially serving Chinese users paying in Chinese yuan, the platform later expanded to accommodate Vietnamese dong and now, the Russian ruble.
The peer-to-peer trading platform is part of Binance’s efforts to bring a more user-centric offering. Although, Binance is known for its crypto-only trading platform, the exchange has been adding a variety of fiat-to-crypto gateways throughout the last several months.
