Binance would convert customers’ holdings of the USD Coin (USDC), Pax dollar (USDP), and TrueUSD (TUSD) into Binance USD (BUSD) on 29 September 2022, and customers transferring those tokens to the exchange will see them automatically converted into Binance’s stablecoin after that date. However, customers will be able to withdraw money denominated in USDC, USDP, or TUSD when removing money from Binance.

          However, Circle CEO Jeremy Allaire on Tuesday 6, September tweeted a suggestion that the move might ultimately benefit USDC, as Binance customers will still be able to deposit and withdraw funds in the form of USDC, but they will not have to manually convert those funds into Tether or BUSD to participate in Binance offerings like margin trading.
