When an exchange offers trading pairs for a particular asset, this action is known as “listing” the asset. In traditional markets, this means that a companies shares (or material asset) are available to be traded on that particular stock exchange. In general, this means that the company being listed has passed certain thresholds for financial and regulatory viability in addition to a degree of trust from the exchange. Thus, by the act of listing, the exchange is signaling that the shares of company/asset are known to be of a base threshold of quality.
