Binance Adds 12 New Cryptos To The US Exchange – VeChain (VET) Surges Following The News
Binance was recently in the spotlight in relation to a BitMEX leak that we addressed not too long ago.
BitMEX is the largest Bitcoin and crypto derivatives exchange, and it has recently released a statement regarding a security breach involving email addresses that are linked to their users’ accounts.
According to the info coming from the online publication the Daily Hodl, it seems that “instead of blind-copying customers on an announcement, BitMEX issued an email to customers that revealed the addresses of the recipients.”
The platform also made sure to apologize to users.
⚠️We are aware of a large-scale user email leak from another exchange.⚠️
It's also worth noting that Binance warned its users to change their passwords as soon as possible if they also have a BitMEX account that uses the same password.
