BinanceUS, a subsidiary of the leading cryptocurrency exchange Binance, has expanded XRP support. This comes barely two weeks after it announced the launch of XRP trading on its platform on July 14 via the XRP/USDT pair.

In a new tweet, BinanceUS announces the addition of a new convert pair for XRP to its BinanceUS convert feature, which allows users to directly convert one cryptocurrency for another in only a few taps.

XRP was relisted on BinanceUS earlier this month. The platform halted XRP trading shortly after the SEC filed the Ripple lawsuit in December 2020.
