In a reply to a Tweet suggesting that Binance should create its own stablecoin, exchange Boss, Changpeng “CZ” Zhao, uttered his famous five-word answer: “careful what you wish for,” a phrase synonymous with past developments… So, is Binance going to develop a stabelcoin?

CZ even hinted to a base pair for XRP back in December 2018, which came to fruition shortly after, much to the pleasure of the XRP army:
So as it stands it looks fairly likely that we’ll hear more news relating to a Binance stablecoin in the future, for now, speculation on what that might involve, continues; however, with the recent Tether/Bitfinex fiasco, Binance might just be able to convince a few of USDT’s disillusioned customers to jump ship…
