Binance halts deposits, withdrawals on glitches in spot trading

(Reuters) -Cryptocurrency exchange Binance has paused deposits and withdrawals on its platform due to issues affecting its spot trading, its Chief Executive Changpeng Zhao said in a tweet on Friday.

“Initial analysis indicates matching engine encountered a bug on a trailing stop order,” he said in a tweet, adding that the pause was a standard operating procedure.

Last week, Binance said it will be halting its sterling deposits and withdrawals, a month after the world’s largest crypto exchange ceased dollar transfers.

Reuters has previously reported that the Justice Department is investigating the crypto exchange for suspected money laundering and sanctions violations.
