Binance has added support for card payments via Apple Pay and Google Pay
Binance has added support for card payments via Apple Pay and Google Pay. However, only for EEA and UK customers.
Binance uses third-party partners for transfers ( which means it is not a direct payment). Therefore, each country will have its own commissions, limits, and other details. It is important to note that it is possible to send funds locally, this option does not cover cross-border transfers.
Crypto.com has disclosed information on reserves
Cryptocurrency exchange Crypto.com supported Binance and disclosed information about its reserves.
As the CEO of the exchange says, this is just a part of their balance sheet. A complete audit will be published soon.
