On 4th of July, the largest crypto exchange Binance suddenly suspended trading, withdrawal and other functions.

Representatives of Binance said that the trading platform is forced to conduct maintenance. They also apologized for the inconvenience, promising to provide details soon.

A few hours later, the blog of the site reported that due to "suspicious trading activity" Binance will remove all existing API keys and will prompt users to create new ones.

After another hour, API keys were removed, users were able to create new ones. The administration of Binance promised to announce the resumption of the remaining operations later.

CEO of the Binance Exchange Changpeng Zhao said that all funds are safe.

At the moment, Binance is still unavailable for trading.

Now a widget on the tabs in the Brave browser gives users direct access to both the Binance US

Decentralized browser Brave announced a partnership with the cryptocurrency exchange Binance. Now, Brave users will be able to buy cryptocurrencies on Binance simply by opening a new tab in the browser.

A widget has appeared on the tabs in the Brave browser, which gives users direct access to both the Binance main site and the site of the American division of the exchange. Users will be able to exchange cryptocurrencies, view their balance and receive addresses for depositing cryptocurrencies directly in the browser. At the same time, developers left the option to disable the widget in the settings.

The developers emphasized that the widget uses the Binance API and does not download any data from the exchange servers, so that user data is protected. The new feature is available in the desktop version of Brave Nightly, and in the main version of the program it will appear in April.

The Binance widget on Brave’s privacy-oriented browser instills a safer way to buy and sell crypto and also reduces user friction to onboard, trade and interact with the Binance ecosystem. We are looking forward to our long-term partnership with Brave to make it even easier to interact with crypto and encourage more utility in the near future.
