Binance users are withdrawing their crypto assets following the recent regulatory scrutiny of one of the exchange’s products.
In the last 24 hours, the exchange saw outflows of $621 million, according to a Wu Blockchain report. The outflows had dropped to $460 million as of press time, according to DeFillama data.
BUSD tokens are burned when users convert their holdings into fiat.
