FTX wallet adds support for BUSD and BNB tokens on the Binance Smart Chain


In what seems like an ongoing streak towards market penetration, prominent crypto exchange FTX has launched support for BSC BEP20 tokens within its wallet services. While no official announcement was made, FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried confirmed the development by saying:“ftx.com/wallet now supports BSC for BUSD and BNB! (Withdrawals are live — I *think* deposits are; otherwise they will be very soon.)”Based on the information available, FTX wallets now actively support withdrawals for Binance USD (BUSD) and BNB, both native to the Binance Chain. The company will soon enable users to make deposits via BSC BEP20 tokens. However, the services are not yet available for the US-focused FTX platform, FTX.US and other prohibited jurisdictions. In a previous interview, Bankman-Fried opined that governments would require more than three to five years to provide regulatory clarity for crypto businesses that wish to operate within their jurisdictions. The entrepreneur also reportedly spends “five hours a day on everything from regulation to licensing.”Recently, the company has also limited its users to leverage trades up to 20x instead of offering 101x leverage. The intention behind this move was to minimize the inherent volatility risks associated with crypto trading. Surprisingly, the exchange has not witnessed a reduction in trading volumes following the announcement.Related: FTX smashes crypto funding record with $900M raise to become exchange decacornComplimenting the crypto exchange’s technological developments, FTX’s latest Series B investment round saw over 60 participants. The resultant deal placed FTX’s valuation to a whopping $18 billion, a 1400% increase from previously $1.2 billion. Other market leaders such as Binance also follow similar methods to promote low-risk trading and increase market adoption. Crediting this move to the “interest of Consumer Protection,” Binance CEO stated that limiting new users to 20x leverage on futures trades was something “he didn’t want to make a thingy.”
