What are Binance-Peg Tokens?

Peg’ means to tie the value of one crypto to another. The main purpose of these tokens is to allow trading of the assets in DEXes that is not currently possible due to their different blockchains. This brings digital assets such as BTC, ETH, USDT, LTC, XRP, LINK, ATOM, DOT, XTZ, ONT, and more to the Binance Chain ecosystem.

Trust Wallet supports Bitcoin (BTC) and Ripple (XRP), and several other blockchains. However, these assets cannot be traded natively on any DEX.

Pegged tokens are 100% backed by their native coin in reserve.
