CEO Changpeng Zhao announced the temporary halt on withdrawals.

“Temporary pause of $BTC withdrawals on #Binance due to a stuck transaction causing a backlog. Should be fixed in ~30 minutes. Will update. Funds are SAFU,” Mr Zhao said.

Mr Zhao has reassured Binance users that their funds are safe, linking the halt to a backlog caused by a stuck on-chain transaction.

He added that the halt is “only impacting the Bitcoin network. You still withdraw Bitcoin on other networks like BEP-20.”

Earlier today, crypto lending platform Celsius announced that it was halting all withdrawals due to “extreme market conditions”.

The halt from the exchange platform comes as the price of the largest cryptocurrency collapsed to as low as $23,964.

The total cryptocurrency market capitalisation has dropped below the $1 trillion level for the first time since January 2021, according to CoinMarketCap, which had valued the market at almost $3 trillion in November.
