Why Is the Ethereum-Based BZRX Up 30% in the Past 24 Hours?

The coin is up a lot in the past 24 hours due to a listing on Binance. Binance has rapidly ramped up its listing process over recent weeks due to it being a bull market. By NewsBTC’s estimates, approximately two-dozen coins have been listed in the past month alone.

Coins listed by notable exchanges like Binance and Coinbase often lead to rallies in their price due to these exchanges often being these coin’s first source of real liquidity.

BZRX has been no exception.
