Despite being one of the higher profile blockchain projects, Tezos (XTZ), a blockchain platform that features a self-evolving upgrade system, has been stunted by a lack of major exchange listings.

That appears to be starting to change as Singapore-based crypto exchange KuCoin announced the listing of Tezos on Friday.

According to the announcement, KuCoin users can begin trading Tezos today, with XTZ/BTC and XTZ/USDT pairs.

This is a notable step in the right direction for the project, as XTZ only sees around $7-10 million in daily trading volume, a low value when you consider the project’s market cap that is currently around $700 million.

This move comes as KuCoin continues to battle for US market share in the wake of the news that Binance will be removing users from the United States and launching a dedicated exchange with limited listings to become fully compliant with US regulators. In addition to a bevy of new listings like Tezos and NEM (XEM), Kucoin also recently released a revamped Kucoin Shares Ecosystem page.

XTZ is currently up 4.2% on the day to $1.02, giving the altcoin a $669 million market cap.
