Binance.US suspends USD deposits and warns of potential withdrawal pause as SEC lawsuit looms.
Yello, Paradisers! We’ve got some breaking news for you. Binance.US, the American arm of the world’s largest crypto exchange, is putting a pause on Uncle Sam’s greenbacks. That’s right, they’re suspending US dollar deposits and warning of a potential pause on fiat (USD) withdrawal channels as early as June 13th.
This move comes hot on the heels of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) flexing its muscles and slapping Binance and its CEO, Changpeng Zhao, with a lawsuit. The SEC has been on a bit of a power trip lately, cracking down on the crypto industry like a school principal on a sugar-high kid.
Binance.US is not taking this lying down, though. They’re transitioning to a crypto-only exchange for the time being. While this means you won’t be able to deposit or withdraw US dollars from the exchange, all crypto-related operations will remain fully operational.
The company has urged its customers to withdraw their USD by June 13th, but they’ve also warned that due to high volumes, withdrawals might take longer than usual to process. But don’t worry, your funds are as safe as a kitten in a room full of pillows. They’re secure and available, according to Binance.US.
Now, you might be wondering why Binance.US is making this move. Well, they’ve accused the SEC of using “extremely aggressive and intimidating tactics” in its pursuit of an ideological campaign against the American digital asset industry. This has created challenges for the banks that Binance.US works with.
