Binance is temporarily suspending US Dollar-denominated bank transfers from Feb. 8, according to an emailed statement sent to CryptoSlate on Feb. 6.
The firm said it was notifying affected customers directly. A Binance spokesperson said:
“It’s worth noting that only 0.01% of our monthly active users leverage USD bank transfers, but that we are working hard to restart service as soon as possible.”
The exchange added that its users could use other methods of buying and selling crypto, including bank transfers in fiat currencies like Euros.
Binance did not reveal how long the service’s disruption would last.
On Jan. 23, Binance said its banking partner Signature bank would stop processing crypto transactions worth less than $100,000. At the time, the exchange added that the decision would affect the bank’s crypto clients.
