Besides, the report revealed that the listing fee for DGB is 0 BNB.
The Binance’s Project Research Report reveals that DigiByte is one of the first decentralized blockchain networks to implement Segregated Witness (SegWit) – a first layer solution that modifies the structure of transaction blocks and improves overall network scalability.
Notably, this listing increases the reputation of DigiByte as a fast-growing digital asset in the cryptocurrency space.
DGB experience a 30% spike in less than two hours
For DigiByte, being listed on a major exchange platform like Binance is a huge deal. Created in 2013, DigiByte is actually one of the oldest cryptocurrencies. Since its inception, DigiByte has worked tirelessly towards finding its place in large exchange platforms and gaining mainstream adoption. With the Binance listing, this has become a dream come true.
The reaction of the coin towards the listing is a very strong one. In less than two hours after the announcement, the price of DGB has increased by almost 30%, taking a high leap from $0.017 to $0.022.
The DigiByte ecosystem has recorded some recent developments and this proves that DigiByte is putting continuous efforts in the expansion of its ecosystem. Through distributed ledger technology, DigiByte would be able to make an economic and financial impact.
Earlier this year, DigiByte Foundation announced a new partnership with Safe Haven. According to reports, the partnership involved the future integration of the Safe Haven inheritance platform on the Digibyte Blockchain.
Also, Zilliqa token ZIL became available for staking on the Binance network. KuCoin also enabled the ZIL staking option for its registered users on June 18.
