Within the past 24 hours, the Binance cryptocurrency exchange has seen outflows of over $1.14B due to rising fear, uncertainty and doubt (FUD) within the crypto ecosystem. 

According to Binance CEO Changpeng “CZ” Zhao, the exchange has seen this before and believes “it is a good idea to ‘stress test withdrawals’ on each CEX [Centralized Exchanges] on a rotating basis”. 

The bank run on Binance comes a month after, the Binance CEO triggered a bank run on FTX, which led to the its liquidity issues, and eventual collapse.

Despite the FUDrampant within the crypto community, members remain optimistic that Binance will weather the storm, and will not share the same fate as FTX. While others speculate that if Binance goes down, the entire crypto industry might be brought to its knees. 

Bitcoin millionaire Carl Runefelt opined on his Twitter account that; “If Binance collapses we’re all fucked.”

Author and Bitcoin enthusiast, Layah Heilpern, shared: “You realise if Binance goes down everything else will crumble? Yes #bitcoin will survive but the entire crypto ecosystem including stablecoins will die.”
