Binance Thinks Funds Are ‘SAFU’ Following Amazon Web Services Withdrawal Error

Binance donates

The head of the cryptocurrency exchange Binance, Changpeng Zhao, is in the latest cryptocurrency news following a recent statement by the exchange. It seems like right now, Binance thinks that the funds are ‘not at risk’ after a reported technical error started affecting its withdrawals.

The CEO Changpeng Zhao (known as CZ) spoke about the entire situation and how it was resolved on August 23, while the funds security was not compromised. He wrote on Twitter stating that “Funds are #safu” employing a well-known catchphrase that he had previously created while confirming that there was no danger to the cryptocurrency holdings.

Featured in the coming altcoin news, CZ explained that Binance thinks funds are safe right now. He centered on Amazon Web Services (AWS) too, stating that the problems with caching were what produced the error messages for a portion of the Binance traders. The withdrawals were also impacted as he noted.

“AWS is having an issue, mostly with caching services, affecting some users globally. We are working with them and monitoring the situation closely,” CZ wrote, adding:

“It’s causing some 500 error messages on APIs and affecting some withdrawal processing.”

Binance thinks funds are safe – but it just recovered from a publicity scarce which involved a self-proclaimed hacker alleging that he had access to the users Know Your Customer (KYC) data. The alleged data leak made Binance very insecure and many best cryptocurrency news sites also talked about the previous hack which was funds worth $41 million leaving the platform due to a security issue.

All of this sparked a weeklong maintenance shutdown and payouts to the affected users. However, Binance thinks that it is in a good place now – right after it announced that it is working on a new cryptocurrency project named Venus. As the altcoin news showed, Venus is going to rival Facebook and its controversial Libra coin.

Meanwhile, the market has stabilized from the yesterday drop and is at a combined total value of $265 billion at press time. Bitcoin is trading at $10,160 and most of the altcoins are recording gains of 1% to 2%. Bitcoin’s dominance is still strong, standing at 68.4%.

In the recent altcoin news, we can see that, the popular crypto researcher and analyst Willy Woo posted on Twitter about his opinion on the type of altcoins of interest to investors and regardless how nuanced the altcoins are or manifested as protocol coins, utility coins and non-fungible coins, the only two types that have actual relevance to investors as Degenerators and Oscillators. On the other hand, there are only a few Oscillators and one of the most surprising examples of such a coin is Dogecoin (DOGE). The cryptocurrency was made as a joke and is now ranked at number 30 by its market capitalization and is considered as an Oscillator. Woo says that Dogecoin proves the store of value properties and to qualify, the coins have to keep up with Bitcoin/USD gains. In order to find oscillators, the coin has to oscillate around a horizontal line for at least one full bull-bear cycle which is around every four years but more than one cycle is better.

Crypto Books Are Still Best Sellers On Amazon For 2020

crypto books
Despite the fact that there’s still no sign for an Amazon cryptocurrency, crypto books are best sellers for 2020 as we are reading further in the coming altcoin news today. Cryptocurrencies are still a major trend in 2020 and the entire market capitalization once again reached $300 billion which was seen six months ago as well. What is most interesting is that it’s not just the price of Bitcoin that is increasing over time since the altcoins are exploding as well. Of course, when the prices of altcoins increase, it increases the retail interest as well. Crypto books are now again in the mainstream while the Google searches are going up as well. Plenty of bitcoin and crypto books are trading and are reaching Amazon’s best-seller list for 2020. Maybe with the ever-increasing popularity, the online retail giant will consider the amazon cryptocurrency again. Amazon is the largest retailer in the world and it is the biggest marketplace for books and e-books. Writers across the world are using this platform to market their writings and to reach a bigger audience. More than 20 percent of the books are related to bitcoin and cryptocurrency. The author of one of the books, Nik Patel, recently ranked #3 on the list but it is also worth noting that the list is updated every hour but the number of books is still notable. This shows that there’s a lot of interest from retail investors as well. As the prices of crypto increase, the interest in investing in crypto also increases every day. These investors are referred to as retail because they don’t have specific knowledge on the matter and they don’t classify as institutions. As per the recent altcoin news reports, the ‘’buy bitcoin’’ key phrase surged to a new high last seen in June 2019 which is a very important price level because it shows interest in buying Bitcoin rather than learning more about it. Bitcoin searches are also increasing and this is only an indicator that people follow the price of the altcoin. Cryptocurrencies are charting a lot of gains since the start of 2020 and they show no signals of slowing down. Most of the major altcoins received double-digit profits since the start of the year.

Most of the LocalBitcoin users remain without access to their tokens, two weeks after the exchange suspended their accounts without a word. The account-holders said that they have been frustrated by the move which has brought their trading operations to a stop, as per the latest cryptocurrency news. LocalBitcoins is based in Finland and is a platform where buyers and sellers can trade Bitcoin directly. It incorporates escrow for security and is also licensed by the Finnish regulator or the Finnish Financial Supervisory Authority. The platform is available in more than 248 countries and generates revenues per year of 31 million USD. The company has more than 67 employees. Back in 2019, the exchange tightened its compliance requirements thus removing the ‘’in-cash’’ person option. despite that, however, the exchange suspended the accounts of many of the LocalBitcoins users without prior warning. Customers in Africa have also been affected mainly those in Uganda and Nigeria. The account holders in Asia have also been affected including people from Pakistan, Afghanistan and other countries in the Middle East. There were many users in the United Kingdom that were affected as well. The localbitcoins users have been asked to withdraw their bitcoin holdings and erase their accounts if they don’t want to wait for activation. Many say that they have been unable to take any action since their accounts have already been suspended with thousands of dollars worth of Bitcoin locked. Rizwan Ali was one trader from Pakistan who was affected, he said:
 “It’s devastating. The exchange suddenly blocked our funds and suspended accounts without any warning. My 0.5 BTC is blocked, and I am waiting for it to be released. It’s been 14 days today since I made my account deletion request. There was no notice. They violated their own terms of service. I am sure what they are doing is illegal.”
Another localbitcoins user in Nigeria said that he was unable to access the account even after he received notifications about customers that want to sell him bitcoins:
 “One of my customers was due to travel out of the country and had to sell some of his bitcoin to be able to go – only to notice on his way to the airport that he could not even access his funds.”
