Binance’s crypto exchange for United States-based users, Binance.US, has opened beta testing of its iOS application to all users.
The exchange announced the news in a Dec. 30 tweet, revealing the successful private beta test and inviting all of its clients to participate in the iOS beta. The private beta testing phase began on Dec. 18, giving Binance.US the opportunity to address possible flaws and have them resolved before making the app available to a wider audience.
Following iOS beta testing, Binance.US made it available for beta testing on Android devices, also urging the public to help identify possible issues and work them out before the app’s launch for a wider audience.
