Cryptocurrency exchange Binance, headquartered in Hong Kong, resumed work today at about 12 hours in Kiev.
The cryptocurrency exchange has suspended its work Wednesday night, citing technical problems. Later, the representatives of the exchange said that the resumption of work will require more time than originally planned. Immediately after the closing of the exchange appeared rumors that the exchange was actually hacked.
Zhao Chanpen, founder and CEO of Binance, presented a statement in reply, that in fact with the exchange all right, she wasn’t hacked, but developers to continue normal work, had to update the functionality of the exchange.
Yesterday representatives of the exchange said they plan to resume work today at about 6 am in Kiev. However, in fact, the work was resumed only in 12 hours.
Representatives of the exchange said they are grateful to all of its users for their support:
To demonstrate our gratitude for your unwavering support throughout the upgrade process, Binance will provide all users a 70% discount on trading fees (0,03% per transaction, 0,015% with BNB) to 2018/02/24 00:00 (UTC).
We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience.
However, users may still experience some problems. Zhao announced on his Twitter that customers trying to access Binance.com can still face problems because cloud services provider of the website is experiencing a DDoS attack:
If you have access issues https://t.co/EtPD2bFzOK , please try https://t.co/pUlb5rOdnH or https://t.co/nZWSnxoCNd . There was a DDoS attack on our cloud provider, resolved, but still some lingering effects.— CZ (@cz_binance) February 9, 2018
