Binance Hack Binance
, one of the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchanges, said hackers withdrew 7,000 Bitcoins worth about $40 million via a single transaction in a “large scale security

As a crypto exchange, we ran a poll on Twitter and wanted to know what our users thought would add an extra layer of security.
The options provided were:
- Compliance like GDPR (24%)
- Third party security audits (20%)
- Remove hot wallets (56%)
