Crypto Events To Note

Trouble has been brewing at Binance, the world’s largest crypto exchange in terms of trading volume. On Friday, CEO Changpeng Zhao tweeted that a bug was detected in the platform’s matching engine of trailing stop order, resulting in a temporary halt of deposits and withdrawals. 

The exchange has now ordered an internal probe to investigate the know-your-customer (KYC) bypassing rumours at the company, as per media reports. Employees were allegedly involved in helping Chinese customers bypass the KYC and pertaining security safety measures. A company spokesperson reportedly confirmed that anyone associated with them is “explicitly forbidden” from assisting any user in dodging the company policies and laws.
