Binance CEO CZ Calls Huge Withdrawals Business as Usual
A total of 40,353 Bitcoins and 278,017 Ether tokens were withdrawn.
Binance’s native cryptocurrency BNB Coin dropped by 5 percent on Tuesday.
On Monday, reports surfaced that the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) is weighing whether or not to file criminal charges against Binance and its officials for money laundering. This has led to significant withdrawals. And high levels of user activity on the cryptocurrency market during the last two days.
The biggest cryptocurrency exchange in the world had its highest day outflow of $1.14 billion on Tuesday. Based on the information provided by CryptoQuant, a total of 40,353 Bitcoins and 278,017 Ether tokens were withdrawn.
Binance’s Proof-of-Reserves audit, conducted by accounting firm Mazars, was released recently, proving that the exchange’s BTC reserves are more than client deposits on any given day in November. The goal here was to demonstrate that the exchange has enough cryptocurrency reserves to cover all of the obligations that have been incurred by the platform as a whole.
BNB Coin Takes Hit
While many have acknowledged the report’s value, they have also noted its flaws. This means that it doesn’t provide an accurate picture of Binance’s long-term viability. As a result, more users have started making withdrawals from the exchange. Binance’s native cryptocurrency BNB Coin dropped by 5 percent on Tuesday as a result of selling pressure brought on by the current turn of events.
Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao revealed the exchange’s withdrawal data on Tuesday, reassuring customers that the exchange is operating normally. A representative for Binance said in an email to Bloomberg that the firm had no outstanding debt.
Regarding the Mazars assessment on Binance’s Proof-of-Reserves, the cryptocurrency exchange has said that they are taking further steps to increase transparency. Moreover, more tokens Proof-of-Reserves will be published in near future.
