The world’s largest crypto exchange Binance suffered issues after the wallet maintenance for BNB Smart Chain (BEP20). The exchange has temporarily suspended deposits and withdrawals on the BNB Smart Chain as the team is working to resolve the issue.
According to an official announcement on March 30, Binance revealed it has temporarily suspended BSC deposits and withdrawals due to a node issue after the Binance Smart Chain (BEP20) network upgrade.
“Due to a node issue following the Binance Smart Chain (BEP20) network upgrade, we have temporarily closed BSC deposits and withdrawals. Our team is working to fixing the issue, with an estimated completion time of 1-hour.”
The wallet maintenance for BNB Smart Chain (BEP20) is expected to be completed by 11:00 UTC on March 30. Binance team is actively working to complete the maintenance as quickly as possible.
The scheduled wallet maintenance for the chain was announced on Tuesday, with investors aware of Binance suspending deposits and withdrawals on the BNB Smart Chain for two hours. However, users are impacted due to the extension of the wallet maintenance to another two hours.
