Binance downtime issues are occurring more and more. In the previous month, users faced issues with placing their orders. They expressed their concerns regarding the services of the Binance exchange. Users reported that their orders and balances were not correct. They were worried as their balances and funds disappeared. However, Binance said as a response that this issue occurred due to high demand.
One user allegedly reported that a fraudulent trade was made through his Binance account. Binance issued an emergency statement in its response to these issues and said:
Binance is undergoing temporary system maintenance. Binance has suspended deposits, withdrawals, spot trading, margin trading, P2P trading, lending, redemption, as well as asset transfers from sub-accounts, margin accounts, futures accounts, and fiat wallets.
Binance CEO says it’s a system failure
The CEO of Binance Changpeng Zhao also passed a statement to calm down the users. He stated that it is a system failure. However, he assured traders that their funds are SAFU.
System issue, not funds related. Funds are #SAFU.
