No More Direct USD Withdrawals

According to the company, the USD deposits in the wallets of Binance.US clients are no longer under the protection of the FDIC insurance. As such, the company can’t continue processing direct USD withdrawals.

Users can still get access to their funds, though, by first converting their USD holdings into a stablecoin. “In the event that customers wish to withdraw U.S. dollar funds from their account,” Binance.US said, “they may do so by converting U.S. dollar funds to stablecoin or other digital assets, which can subsequently be withdrawn.”

As Binance.US suspends USD withdrawals, individuals who are still using the platform should begin to get more wary until the entire US-SEC and Binance US saga is over.
