According to the latest reports, an accounting bug at Binance has led to a windfall in Helium Network’s native HNT token for some users. More than that, it seems that this shouldered the world’s largest crypto exchange with a multimillion-dollar shortfall, according to the latest reports coming from reliable sources.

Binance in the news

CoinDesk noted that Binance is down some 4.8 million HNT tokens that were erroneously disbursed to users, many of whom quickly sold the tokens for profit, the people said.

At Friday’s prices, the assets were worth about $19 million, according to the very same notes.

It’s also been revealed that the erroneous payouts appear to stem from how Binance tracks token deposits from Helium network. This is a popular decentralized internet connectivity project, the people said.

“There are two tokens on Helium: the native HNT token that Helium pays out to hotspot hosts and the MOBILE token, paid to operators of Helium 5G infrastructure, which launched last month and lacks a liquid market, and therefore any quotable price,” the same online publication mentioned above notes.
