This move by binance is in cooperation with investment firm CM-Equity AG and asset tokenization platform Digital Assets AG.

Binance said the Tesla stock tokens on the platform will have a minimum trade size of one-hundredth of a stock token, representing the same fraction of a Tesla share. Stock tokens are priced and settled in the Binance stablecoin BUSD.
