“We don’t list shitcoins even if they pay 400 or 4,000 BTC. ETH/NEO/XRP/EOS/XMR/LTC/more were listed with no fee (paid). Question is not “how much does Binance charge to list?” but “is my coin good enough?” It’s not the fee, it’s your project! Focus on your own project!”Other community members then found fault with CZ's approach and/or lack of transparency in regards to Binance's terms for listing fee criteria:
This may help point to today's decision to offer greater clarity and include charitable nature to their listing process. Now referring to the listing fees as "donations", Binance further itterates:
So why not standardize the process and make all this info public? Let everyone know what criteria a coin must meet in order to be listed for free. It would also be helpful to be transparent about listing fees to avoid confusion and misinformation— Daniel C Pigeon ?? (@danielcpigeon) August 11, 2018
If your coin is still in the listing review process, feel free to update your application with an appropriate number. Binance will continue to use the same high standard for the listing review process. A large donation does not guarantee or in any way influence the outcome of our listing review process.It's likely will use their own charitable arm, Blockchain Charity Foundation, to handle the donations related to listing fees on the Binance exchange.
