Binance first announced the listing of ZenCash yesterday that has its prices go vertical about 40 percent in anticipation of listing by such a big exchange. This price pump led to a congestion on its network.
The trading was open for ZEN/BNB, ZEN/BTC, and ZEN/ETH pairs. During this two hour fame, ZEN went from $33 to approximately $48. Bittrex and Upbit registered the maximum trading volumes.
