Binance lists SEC-compliant token for $250,000 “long-term payment”
Earlier this week, Binance’s main platform listed Blockstack’s STX token when the firm paid Binance a $250,000 “long-term payment” to ensure that the token remains listed on the platform. A filing with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) from Blockstack reveals that Binance received 833,333 STX, which at the $0.30 token valuation provided by the company is equivalent to $250,000.
Binance states that it did not charge a listing fee to Blockstack and that the marketing payment was Blockstacks’ initiative.
STX’s listing on Binance follows a $23 million token sale that was approved by the SEC under Regulation A+. An A+ funding round is a type of initial public offering for startups in need of early funding in which members of the public can participate.
