Binance has posted an announcement stating that it has added Ripple’s coin as a base currency on the exchange. From now on, Ripple can be used to make purchases of other crypto listed on the platform. Binance allows users to enjoy the TRX/XRP (Tron) and XZC/XRP (Zcoin) pairs.
Let us look at XRP situation on the market:
The CEO of Binance, Changpeng Zhao, gave a hint at planning to make Ripple a primary asset earlier. The Ripple community had been waiting for this since then. Some Twitter users, called “C3|Nik” and “izombieXRP”, even asked him to do this, though Mr. Zhao did not respond to them.
Several days later, Zhao made an official statement via Twitter:
We will be adding a couple trading pairs with XRP as the quote currency shortly.
And rename ETH markets to ALTS market. Running out of space on the UI.

Even though some small crypto exchanges have already added Ripple with altcoins, but a top cryptocurrency exchange has made it for the first time.
