Binance is currently faced with a massive outflow of cryptocurrencies. Amidst the fear, uncertainty and doubt (FUD) surrounding the exchange’s insolvency, traders are moving their funds off the exchange to self-custody.
Changpeng Zhao, the CEO of Binance addressed these concerns and assured traders that the FUD is due to external factors. The exchange is rolling out new features to onboard crypto traders to its trading platform.
Popular mobile wallets open up the potential for a vast market share of users. Apple Pay has 43.9 million users and Google Pay has 25 million. These two are among the top digital wallets. The introduction of mobile wallets on the platform therefore opens up crypto to mainstream users. The fee rate is currently 2% per transaction. Availability of the feature depends on the region where the user is located.
Binance could potentially acquire several users from the industry and tackle the massive outflows from the trading firm.
