The Binance cryptocurrency exchange this Wednesday announced planned technical works, because of which its platform will not be available for 6-8 hours.
The update starts on August 15 at 05:00 Moscow time. From this time until the end of the technical work, users will not be able to deposit / withdraw funds, or enter into transactions on the platform.
The break in the work of Binance is associated with improvements to the application matching engine, API and WebSocket performance optimization. In addition, a new type of orders will be available to users through the API – OCO (Order Cancels Order or interchangeable order).
As in previous updates, Binance will give customers 30 minutes after the completion of technical work so that they can cancel existing applications and carry out operations on deposit / withdrawal of funds. The company recommends paying attention to active margin positions in order to avoid forced liquidations.
On Tuesday, Binance also announced a change in its listing program for BEP2 tokens from the non-custodian Binance DEX exchange on the main Binance.com platform. Whereas earlier Binance planned in such a way to list at least one project per month, now it does not assume such obligations.
Last week, Binance representatives announced a plan to open a new office in London.
