Tron and Cardano, two cryptocurrencies building considerable momentum and buzz, received good news this week with both scoring new exchange listings. Unfortunately for Ripple and Verge, rumours that Binance would add the option to trade XRP and XVG for fiat were proved unfounded.
In a strong sign of Tron’s increasing reach, Canada’s Einstein Exchange added TRX today. The Vancouver-based operation describes itself as “Canada’s fastest growing digital currency exchange” and added Golem’s GLM and 0x’s ZRX in addition to TRX.

Tron plans to “construct a global free content entertainment system”, where individuals can use Tron’s blockchain to “freely publish, store, and own data”. Earlier in the week it consolidated its appeal in Asia when it was added to WazirX, “India’s most trusted Bitcoin exchange”.

Cardano (ADA) has also made progress in the last few days, being added to CoinSwitch, an aggregator which partners with exchanges like KuCoin and Bittrex to allow its customers to access the best price without having to open separate accounts at each exchange.
That news came after Binance announced that it had added new Cardano trading pairs to the exchange. As of this week it is possible to trade ADA for BNB, the exchange’s Binance Coin, or Tether (USDT).
Earlier today there were rumours that Binance would add the option to convert XRG and XRP for USD. However, these were quashed by Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao who tweeted that though they were “working with banks (to support fiat)” there were “no plans for USD in the short term”. Also, there would be “no XVG or XPR [presumably he meant XRP] involved”
While we can’t predict the future, others keep attempting it on us. Both “news” are not accurate. We are working with banks (to potentially support fiat), but no plans for USD in the short term. No xvg or xrp involved. Be careful around predictive “crystal ball” news.”
