Binance has officially reopened: Offers 50,000 BNB ($1.2 million) giveaway

The worlds largest crypto exchange is once again fully operational as Binance notes that deposits are open and fully functional, and to top it all off they’re kicking off the reopening with a 50,000  BNB giveaway (a current USD equivalent of 1.2 million dollars …)

The reopening was announced by Binance and reiterated by Changpeng ‘CZ’ Zhao just moments ago.

Along with the announcement of the reopening of deposits CZ also noted a 50,000 BNB giveaway – a total USD equivalent of approx. $1.2 million dollars – as a thank you to loyal customers of the exchange.

50,000 BNB giveaway

An official statement from the exchange read:

“To express our gratitude for the Binance community's unwavering support, we will be providing VIP level ups and holding a 50,000 BNB giveaway.”

The requirements for entry into this giveaway include the trading of over 1 BTC:

“All users with valid trading volume of 1 BTC or more (buy & sells) across any trading pairs on Binance during the promotion period will split a pool of 50,000 BNB.”

The promo period for the giveaway will last from 2019/05/15 1:00 PM to 2019/05/18 0:00 AM (UTC)

Hack and back again

Binance closed its doors just over a week ago, temporarily halting deposits and withdrawals after a serious security breach, in which hackers managed to pilfer over 7000 BTC right under the exchanges nose. Attackers allegedly executed the “well-orchestrated” hack at “the most opportune time,” passing through security checks before the exchange could block the withdrawal.

Funds, of course, remained SAFU, with the Secure Asset Fund For Users assuring the minds (and wallets) of investors, and making sure that no one but the exchange itself, felt the loss.

Today Binance reopens its deposit and withdrawal functions once again, which in itself has turned into one of the most anticipated events the crypto community has seen in quite some time.

While Bitcoin has enjoyed a parabolic rally during Binance’s temporary halt many anticipate a further soar of price action for altcoins with the exchange reopening the flood gates for further investment.

Conjecture circles around the theory of the beginning of altseason following the opening of the deposits, with speculators positing that traders will look to shift their newfound Bitcoin gains into the more profitable altcoins.
