- Withdrawl returns on Binance after service was temporarily suspended.
- Binance exchange remains number one crypto exchange.
- Firm now working with regulators to end crackdown.
In the early hours of Monday, Binance exchange CEO Changpeng Zhao announced the suspension of all transaction withdrawals due to “a large backlog of data,” as the exchange put it. Zhao, however, assured that all funds were safe despite suspending withdrawal.
Binance informed users that withdrawal activity had been resumed but reversed that action a mere 20 minutes later. The firm apologized to its global customer base for the inconvenience and shared that further updates would be announced.
It is worthy to note that the exchange was not hacked or attacked as it only had a routine check on its operations when its withdrawal service temporarily went down.
