Binance To Auto-Convert USDC to BUSD
Binance, the largest cryptocurrency exchange, announced that it is automatically converting USDC, USDP, and TUSD balances into Binance stablecoin (BUSD) this Monday. The cryptocurrency exchange claims that the move is to enhance liquidity and capital efficiency for users. Binance encourages users to convert their USDC into BUSD at a 1:1 ratio.
“With effect from 2022-09-29 03:00 (UTC), users will trade with a consolidated BUSD balance on the Binance Platform that reflects their balances of these four stablecoins (BUSD, USDC, USDP, and TUSD) post-conversion. This will not affect users’ choice of withdrawal: users will continue to be able to withdraw funds in USDC, USDP, and TUSD at a 1:1 ratio to their BUSD-denominated account balance,” announced Binance in a statement.
Binance will withdraw and suspend trading on the USDC, USDP, and TUSD spot trading pairs on September 29, 2022. (UTC). Users can see their USDC, USDP, and TUSD balances under the BUSD-denominated account balance when the conversion is complete. Binance will erase all pending trade orders after trading in each trading pair has ceased. The assets can then be traded in the corresponding BUSD trading pairs by users.
