Binance had system issue, CZ ensures funds are SAFU

Binance had an issue that caused the system down for a couple of minutes, CZ ensured funds are SAFU. 

Binance’s CEO, Changpeng Zhao just posted on his Twitter account regarding the system down on his exchange’s platform.

He said that several users may have been affected for 30 minutes from what he called as “a middleware issue”.

He, however, ensured his followers that “Funds are SAFU” and went on saying that everything should be back to normal already by the time he posted the tweet.

That said, some people left comments on the post, saying that they’re still experiencing some problems while accessing their Binance accounts.

“I keep getting I'm logged in elsewhere activity,” said a user, @CryptoMH3, which is affirmed by several other people, although @ElyAlfaro7 said that, “Thanks for quick response! I’m back up and trading...keep up the great work.”

CZ is known for his fast response, especially when Binance experiences unwanted issues. The attitude, somehow, has built a "strong connection" with the users that has led to they're having some sort of "trust" to him and the exchange itself.

Meanwhile, just a couple of days ago, renowned exchange, Bitfinex experienced an “issue” that made their users unable to access the platform. After getting responses questioning the scale of the issue, the exchange revised their statement from “affected some users” to “all users”, before eventually confirming that it has been resolved.

At least binance makes statements about such thinks. When bitstamp had this they didn't even say anything...

everyone knows that bitstamp is nothing to look on

When coinbase are having issues they don't apologise or explain. They just say that coinbase is under maintenance.

Can be somehow else? CB does not care about their customers and therefore does not make announcements of problems like other decent exchanges

I think it's a cultural thing. Almost all the Asian exchanges are quite polite and explain and/or apologise for inconveniences. Bitfinex also notifies the users about everything. Would not say the same about American ones.
