Commenting on the breakdown, CZ said:
“You can access our backup site at http://binancezh.com in the meantime, maybe a little slower. But everything should work.”
The CEO also reassured clients, saying, “DNS should be restored now and propagating.”

CZ’s +503 thousand followers replied to his tweet, with some expressing worries. A follower naming himself ‘Drago’ said, “How are my funds SAFU when theyre dropping and I cant close my positions!?”
In his response to the tweet, Thalal Gasea also asked if the company has a problem with liquidity, adding if such issue occurs again in less than a year, it will be out of business.
