XRP has been making headlines for some time now. During the beginning of the bearish wave caused by the BCH Hard fork, XRP was soaring against the USD and Bitcoin while other major coins fell. Even if it is back in red, it has gotten the attention of some experts in the industry. For some time now, members of the XRP community have been calling on the CEO of Binance Changpeng Zhao to make XRP tradable with every asset on its list. Due to the strong fundamentals the token now has, Binance may be considering this move.

The CEO of Binance, Changpeng Zhao took to Twitter to ask the XRP community members to send him pitches regarding why he should pair every coin on the exchange to XRP. The tweet was as follows:
“This XRP base shill is strong. Let us get it out of our systems. Put your shills under a tweet so we can see how much we get”.
After the post, many members of the XRP community started making suggestions as to which pair would make the most sense for XRP. Some suggested that XRP should be paired with Binance coin while others suggested that it gets paired with every cryptocurrency on the list.
What Would This Pairing Mean For Bitcoin
Bitcoin has been known to have a strong link to every other coin. This is why it’s not surprising that a fall in the price of Bitcoin often leads to a fall in the price of other cryptocurrencies and vice-versa. Recently, XRP has shown that it’s possible for a coin to thrive even when Bitcoin falls. If Binance pairs XRP with every coin on its list, the price dependency of the token will grow stronger.
The more exchanges that add XRP as a base pair, the easier it will be to move XRP across exchanges and increase its value. The tweet by Changpeng Zhao had 2,700 retweets, 5,600 likes and 2,900 replies at the time of writing.
