    A good exchange should be always semi-transparent to their user whatever happens.Binance is one of the good exchange but for mij even you use a very excellent or very secure exchanger its always your job to secure yours assets.Never stock your your assets inwards the exchanger specially if your not a daily trader.Its just for your own safety spil well.

  2. Did you have money on Binance? Were you alarmed or certain? I had a few grand on there, far more than usual… Super glad it turned out ok, but still let this be a reminder to mij and everyone else, storing coins on an exchange is more scary than on a secure private wallet.

  3. I wasgoed worried about binance 2-3 days ago, but its working good now. Everything is okay for binance. this exchange is getting stronger each day.
