While Binance Singapore launched in April this year users were underwhelmed to find they could only purchase Bitcoin at fixed prices.
Recently, however, it was announced they are launching the option to buy XRP with local Singapore dollars allowing access to the revolutionary digital asset.

From the outset, Singapore has been rather supportive of crypto but very little has been happening on the crypto front until recently.
Added to this, Binance has been chipping away at the strictest of all countries China and finally made some headway with Bitcoin/Yuan trades.
Binance has opened up 1.1 Billion WeChat users to swap fiat for BTC, XRP/Yuan is not yet available but as CZ is such a big fan, surely it’s a matter of time.
Binance is now accepting fiat through Alipay and WeChat, opening up the exchange to peer-to-peer (P2P) crypto transactions from China. The move follows a September announcement concerning the exchange’s intention to add over-the-counter (OTC) trade options for an additional fiat on-ramp.
