Binance Halts FTT token deposits
As the FTX platform crashes, it will be the right chance for all the hackers, scammers and other unknown users to perform unauthorized transactions on the platform. Similarly, last day, FTX found an illegal access and analysts who moved millions of funds in a fraudulent manner.
