Binance CEO Changpeng “CZ” Zhao has finally announced the date for the first public release of Binance Chain’s decentralized exchange (DEX) testnet.

According to the tweet, the exchange is “targeting” a February 20 release date. The DEX is designed to give users greater freedom, allowing them to send and receive Binance Coin (BNB), issue new tokens built on Binance Chain and invest using community-created trading pairs.

CZ recently revealed in a Periscope video that he is deliberately making the listing fee for new exchange high to reduce the number of spam and scam projects. While the number isn’t set in stone, he anticipates the fee will be around $100,000.
