Changpeng Zhao of Binance affirms that USD bank transfers will be reinstated soon

Changpeng Zhao, the CEO of Binance addressed the issue of temporary suspension of USD bank transfers. The exchange has announced that USD bank transfers will be suspended temporarily on February 8. 

The interruption in the exchange’s service will soon be resolved, according to CZ. It is worth noting that USD bank transfers are leveraged by only 0.01% of the exchange’s monthly active users. Therefore, only a small proportion of users will be impacted by the temporary suspension of USD transfers. The exchange is working on restarting the service as soon as possible.

CZ assured his 8.1 million Twitter followers that the issue will be resolved soon and the team is working on it. All other methods of buying and selling cryptocurrency remain unaffected. 

The temporary suspension does not apply to Binance US and is limited to the users of Binance International (Binance.com). 

Some banks have withdrawn support for crypto, while other banks are moving in. Binance has experienced some setbacks in banking support since 2022. CZ affirms that the exchange is focused on the long-term and will keep building to power USD transfers for its users.
