Binance Hack FUD

Binance, one of the most important cryptocurrency exchanges in the world has been upgrading their servers in order to provide a better service to its users. It was a necessary measure that reduced the usability of the platform for some time. Since the cryptocurrency bull-run that we experienced the last year, cryptocurrency exchanges received an important influx of users that were not capable to handle.

John McAfee started to spread FUD information about Binance. He said that Binance suspended trading and that it may be caused by a hacked. Even when he did not provide trustworthy information he received 2.5K likes 893 RT’s and more than 1.3K comments.

He did not believe that Binance was upgrading its system. Indeed, the company had to answer him saying that the cryptocurrency exchange has not been hacked.

Days later, he apologized to Binance and its CEO Changpeng Zhao for spreading FUD.

Now, Binance is offering a 70% discount on trading fees for two weeks to show gratitude to its customers.
