Crypto withdrawals on Binance are back online after a temporary outage that was due to a "technical issue," according to a post on the exchange's X account.

"The issue is now fixed and all crypto withdrawals on Binance are now back to functioning as usual," the post on the platform formerly known as Twitter, said.

  • According to etherscan, one of the exchange's wallets last processed a withdrawal before the outage at 10:45 UTC; the update to say it was back online came at 11:55 UTC.

    "Technical issue with a middleware service impacting withdrawals. Funds are SAFU. Our team is on it," CEO Changpeng "CZ" Zhao tweeted soon after the withdrawal pause.

    The outage comes after around $100 billion was traded across all crypto venues on Tuesday, the highest daily volume since the FTX crash in November, 2022, according to CoinMarketCap.

    The rise in activity comes alongside a hike in the price of bitcoin (BTC), which is trading at $34,300 after rallying to a 16-month high on Tuesday.

    Binance last halted withdrawals in 2021, at the time citing a "heavy backlog." That outage lasted around 25 minutes.

    UPDATE (Oct. 25, 11:41 UTC): Adds Zhao tweet, bitcoin price, previous withdrawals outage.

    UPDATE (Oct. 25, 12:50 UTC): Updates headline and opening paragraph to say Binance withdrawals are back online. Adds context throughout.
