Binance, one of the largest cryptocurrency exchanges in the world, announced that its newly launched U.S.-only platform is now open for registrations.

Registrations and deposits have begun at 8 a.m. ET on Sept. 18, enabling users in 37 states to create accounts and deposit funds.

Binance.US will not be available in 13 states, including Alabama, Alaska, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Louisiana, New York, North Carolina, Texas, Vermont and Washington, the company said in a blog post.

The platform initially announced that it will accept deposits of Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETC), XRP (XRP), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Litecoin (LTC), and Tether (USDT). However, users will now be able to deposit Binance Coin (BNB) as well, Binance said in a Sept. 18 tweet.

According to the company’s blog post, the onboarding of customers marks the beginning of the first phase of their U.S. launch. The addition of Binance Coin also marks the first time a high-profile cryptocurrency exchange has listed BNB.

The second phase of the Binance.US launch will bring “the largest variety of digital assets to the U.S.”

“Although it is upsetting that we cannot offer Binance.US in the states where I grew up and earned my education at this time, please rest assured that this is just the beginning,” Catherine Coley, the CEO of Binance.US said in a blog post.

However, Coley, a former Ripple executive, added the company is working on adding support for additional jurisdictions.

To attract users to the newly launched platform, trading on Binance.US will be free until Nov. 1, when regular fees will be introduced. The company said it will implement a straightforward fee schedule, offering personal accounts a flat fee of 0.10 percent per trade.

Corporate accounts, on the other hand, will have their fees adjusted depending on their trading volume.

However, trading on Binance.US is yet to begin. The company said trading on the order books will begin only after a sufficient supply of coins is established.
