A series of new tweets is fueling speculation that Binance is about making a big move with XRP.
A photo of Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao with senior vice president of Ripple Ethan Beard and TechCrunch founder Michael Arrington was published today. The image was taken from the Liechtenstein Cryptoassets Exchange office (LCX), a fiat-to-crypto exchange backed by newly launched Binance.
After the Tweet was released, Zhao responded quickly, joking that he could post a photo similar to that could "reveal too much".

Lol, If I posted this photo (my photo, probably only a couple of hours away from yours), is it too much of a coincidence? And reveal too much? pic.twitter.com/1cXBbo8bvz

Ripple's fanbase on Twitter was ready to react, speculating that this could be a sign that Binance could add XRP to the new exchange as a fiat-to-crypto option, adopt xRapid or add XRP as a base pair to its primary cryptographic exchange.

With the hashtag #XRPthebase the Ripple community pushed to convince Binance that adding XRP as a base pair is a good choice , due to the speed of the digital resource. The addition would allow XRP to be traded directly on the platform with other cryptocurrencies.
