Crypto exchange Binance has encountered major issues with spot trading on the platform.
On March 24, Binance suspended all spot trading transactions, according to an announcement by Binance’s official Twitter account.
“We are aware of an issue impacting spot trading on Binance. All spot trading is currently temporarily suspended as we work to resolve this as soon as possible,” Binance wrote.
Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao subsequently took to Twitter to report that the initial analysis indicated bug issues with the matching engine.
“Deposits and withdrawals are paused as a standard operating procedure. Funds are #SAFU,” CZ wrote.
