Binance has surpassed another milestone by adding nine million users to its platform, as revealed to Bloomberg by the firm’s CEO Zhao Changpeng. This is a huge achievement for the exchange as in mere six months, the number of registered users increased more than four times from mere two million in January.
The exchange already crossed seven million users by mid-March, which Finance Magnates reported earlier.
However, the massive addition of users also led to an increase in customer issues with the exchange’s services. According to a Reddit user, he was the recent victim of a crypto theft which cost him $50,000 worth of cryptocurrencies. However, it was not the exchange’s fault as the victim was subjected to a SIM swap hacking technique.
Highlighting this case, Zhao also tweeted and asked the users to learn about security measures.
Interesting discussion/read. Many people think of security as a simple server side issue. Client side security is just as important. Make sure you learn about security. https://t.co/g9boTuIyrt
