Streamr, the blockchain-backed data platform, today announced that its token (DATA) has been listed on Binance, the largest cryptocurrency exchange in the world by trading volume. The announcement comes at a time of great vibrancy within the Streamr community, following the launch of Streamr’s real-time data Marketplace in May 2018. DATA is available for trading immediately.
“This listing is yet another vote of confidence for the Streamr project and our long-term vision,” co-founder and CEO Henri Pihkala said. Having just launched our Marketplace in May, the listing of DATA on one of the world’s leading exchanges is another big 2018 milestone for our project.”
Launched in July 2017, Binance provides users with a secure and liquid marketplace for cryptocurrency trading in major cryptocurrencies. With a certified matching engine capable of processing 1.4 million orders per second, Binance is one of the fastest cryptocurrency exchanges available.
“Given that our community is our most valuable asset, we want to grant them increased accessibility to our DATA token and create the most seamless Marketplace experience possible,” Mr. Pihkala said. “Our aim is to give organisations and consumers back control of their own data, and having a reputable name like Binance behind us gives us the added layer of credibility to be the enablers of genuine empowerment.”
