XRP and other crypto being withdrawn from Binance
In particular, large amounts of XRP have been withdrawn from Binance, as reported by U.Today; more than 62 million were removed from this platform on Tuesday, and 152 million XRP have been withdrawn over the past 24 hours as well.
Binance was accused by the CFTC of violating laws about spot and derivatives trading, allegedly allowing U.S. citizens to trade on its main platform without using Binance US. The head of the exchange, CZ, was also sued by the regulator. Among the charges is the fact that Changpeng Zhao used proprietary accounts on Binance to trade against his own customers.
