Binance lists Cosmos (ATOM) for free: Good tech wins, says CZ

Today Binance announced the listing of a new cryptocurrency, Cosmos, which apparently caught the eye Binance boss Changpeng ‘CZ’ Zhao, who listed Cosmos for free, attributing its addition to the cryptocurrency's “good tech” … 

Binance plans to open trading Tomorrow (Monday 29th April) at 4:00 AM (UTC) trained pairs will include ATOM/BNB, ATOM/BTC, and ATOM/USDT

While the listing of any new coin is fairly notable within the crypto community, Cosmos (ATOM) appears to hold special emphasis, not only for its recent listing on San Francisco-based cryptocurrency exchange Kraken, and for CZ’s appraisal of its tech potential, but also the fact that it got listed for free…

Within a Tweet announcing the listing of Cosmos, CZ asserted that Binance specifically sought out Cosmos despite the project’s apparent apathy towards exchange listings:

The comments section was filled with the typical mixture of excitement from Cosmos patrons for listing their crypto, and with hopeful advocates of other cryptocurrencies lobbying for a coveted listing.

One crypto Twitter commentator known as Emptybeerbottle, summed up this aforementioned phenomenon fairly aptly:

This recent listing along with an ‘endorsement’ from CZ, appeared to create some traction for Cosmos, with the project currently citing a 25% rise in 24 hours.
