While the exchange is drawing in more trading activity than ever, it’s doing so without U.S. users. Several Twitter users based in the U.S. have reported an email from Binance informing them they have 14 days to close their accounts. The exchange reportedly said th accounts will be locked if they fail to withdraw all funds before the deadline. Binance has been restricted for users living in the United States since September 2019.
