Binance Tightens Security to Combat Account Misuse

Binance, the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange, has implemented new security measures to prevent the misuse of account features and enhance platform integrity. This move comes after discovering that certain users were exploiting account features for unfair advantages. The new measures prioritize the interests of all users in an effort to establish a sustainable and healthy market environment.

Stricter Actions Against Misuse

Binance announced that stricter actions will be taken against account misuse, including suspensions or terminations of accounts if necessary. The exchange emphasized that misuse harms the platform’s reputation and negatively impacts rule-abiding users. Binance offers various account types, including sub-accounts, managed sub-accounts, and fund manager accounts, which are essential for legitimate use cases.

However, bad actors have misused these features to bypass controls and gain better fee rates and higher API limits. Unauthorized access to other users’ accounts is considered a severe breach of Binance’s Terms of Use, KYC, and KYB policies.

Enhanced Monitoring and Reporting Rewards

To tackle account misuse, Binance has enhanced monitoring of all account activities. The platform encourages users to report any suspected misuse incidents and offers rewards for verified cases.

Moreover, the reward amount will be determined on a case-by-case basis. Users can report misuse incidents to misuse-reporting@binance.com. Binance’s efforts to improve security measures are part of its broader strategy to fight security breaches.

Community Support and Collaborative Efforts

ZackXBT, a blockchain investigator, praised Binance for its community support during security incidents. Despite media criticism, Binance’s security team actively supports victims and provides incident response.

Additionally, Binance CEO Richard Teng highlighted the exchange’s collaboration with authorities to investigate a malicious attack on Turkish crypto exchange BtcTurk. This collaboration resulted in the successful freezing of over $5 million in stolen funds.

Amid these security efforts, Binance faces money laundering charges in Nigeria, with authorities accusing the company of illegally moving $26 billion out of the country.
