Binance Reduces Confirmation Times for Bitcoin and Ethereum Transactions

Binance Cuts Withdrawal and Deposit Times for Top Cryptocurrencies

In a move to streamline its services, Binance, one of the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchanges, has announced a significant reduction in the time needed to make withdrawals and deposits in two top cryptocurrencies.

The exchange revealed on Tuesday that it has adjusted its systems to cut the number of block confirmations required for bitcoin (BTC) deposits to just 1 block confirmation. Withdrawals will now only require two confirmations. Similarly, for ethereum (ETH) and related ERC-20 tokens, Binance has reduced the required block confirmations for deposits and withdrawals from 30 to 12.

It’s important to note that the respective blockchains will still confirm blocks as usual and are not controlled by Binance. The exchange is simply accepting a reduced number of confirmations as sufficient to update wallet balances within its own systems.

Binance CEO Changpeng “CZ” Zhao took to Twitter to announce the update with a simple message: “Faster.” This move comes as part of a series of service enhancements from Binance, including the upcoming launch of stablecoins and a bitcoin-pegged token on its own blockchain, as well as the introduction of crypto futures trading with up to 20x leverage.

In addition, Binance has been strengthening its compliance measures through partnerships with IdentityMind, Elliptic, and CipherTrace to enhance its anti-money laundering procedures. The exchange has also made headlines for barring U.S. users from its international site, likely in response to regulatory concerns, but is working on launching a regulated platform specifically for the U.S. market.

Former Ripple executive Catherine Coley has been appointed as CEO to lead this effort. With these developments, Binance continues to solidify its position as a leading player in the cryptocurrency industry.
