According to the announcement, trading will start on Monday at 12:00 AM (EST), with ATOM/BNB, ATOM/BTC and ATOM/USDT trading pairs.
With the announcement, Binance notes that Cosmos gained its listing on the exchange for free, as part of its new transparency initiative that allows select projects of high quality to earn the coveted spot free of charge.
Here is a project that refused to even talk to an exchange about listing (and we have a good relationship with their tech guys), but we list it anyway.

Self-styled as the third iteration of blockchain technology, Cosmos plans to solve many issues plaguing current platforms, including scalability, usability and sovereignty. Cosmos hope to achieve this by creating an “Internet of Blockchains” — essentially a network of existing blockchains able to communicate with each other in a decentralized way.
ATOM is currently also listed on Poloniex, Huobi Global, Kraken, OKEx and several other exchanges and is now up 45.2% on the Binance listing news, bringing the altcoin to a $1.05 billion market cap.
