Binance Innovation Zone Offers Momentum

Harvest Finance and Alpaca Finance have experienced a marked price reaction to news of their Binance Innovation Zone listing. 

The announcement was made via Binance’s official webpage, where initial news of the move broke on the 11th of August, 05:30 AM UTC. The innovation zone is a place for Binance to list relatively new and higher risk tokens.

“Ever since we listed $ALPACA back in April, it has increased in value by a total of 1545%,” These were the words of centralised exchange MEXC Global on Twitter, in noting Alpaca Finance’s recent listing. “Congrats to the holders of $ALPACA  and congrats to @AlpacaFinance for the listing next on @Binance!”

The relevant trading pairs, that opened August 11th, 08:00 AM UTC for Harvest Finance (FARM) and Alpaca Finance (ALPACA), are as follows: 


Token Reaction

Alpaca and Harvest Finance certainly did react to the Binance Innovation Zone listing. 

The $ALPACA token saw a sharp move from the mid $0.90 mark to over $1.70 the following day, according to CoinMarketCap. Similarly, Harvest Finance’s $FARM also jumped from just over $200 to $419 over the same period, according to CoinMarketCap.

The price of each token has since consolidated, and this perhaps underlines the dangerous volatility of new higher-risk tokens. The initial reaction does, however, highlight the exciting effect that the Binance Innovation Zone can indeed have.
