As Binance exchange suffered a major hack the other day, losing 7,000 BTC or $40 mln, the crypto community was shocked – Binance has always been resistant to security breach attacks.

The crypto market responded by throwing currencies in the red. All except Tron.

Justin Sun offers help to Binance

Changpeng Zhao (CZ) has always tweeted that funds are SAFU. So it was this time – the lost 7,000 BTC would be compensated to the users from the platform’s SAFU fund.

Still, Justin Sun, an all-time companion of CZ in various projects, such as charity or BitTorrent launch on Binance Launchpad, has offered to deposit 7,000 BTC in Tether to Binance to support the exchange and buy various currencies.

The crypto community took this as a support gesture and a way to raise confidence in the crypto market. However, CZ thanked and refused, saying that Binance still has enough funds to compensate.
