A month ago Binacne blocked my old, active account that was 3d level verified and full of 1.2K BTC.
The account was created and used for arbitrage on cryptocurrency markets and everything was good for a long time before Binance decided to block it.
Since then I’ve had a long conversation with their representative where I provided all my documents (even more that it was necessary), passed video verification and fund verification as well.
During our conversation they changed the reason for blocking my account a few times and as a conclusion it’s still blocked.
The first reason was “security” the last one was “law enforcement” which they don’t want to connect me directly with. And you know what, I don’t believe them at all.
- I make deposits from and make withdrawals exclusively to other well recognized exchanges from Top-10 exchanges.
- I haven’t made withdrawals to any new addresses for last month. All withdrawals were from addresses that I used before for as long as several months. Why have you just now blocked my account?
- All my withdrawals can be traced to well-known cold wallets of respectable exchanges (all were in top 10, according to CMC).
- The hackers don’t do any arbitrage.
- It's strictly prohibited to tell anyone that reason of blocked account is law enforcement (in case it's real reason, not like in my case). If it's really law enforcement they will connect you directly without any 3d party.
My accounts on other exchanges are active, so, I’m just wondering for what reasons is Binance holding my money with no rules or reasons for it?
I just kindly ask the official Binance representative to let me know that an investigtion about the account has beed started.
u/Binance How long does it take to finally solve the issue with my account as they’ve had all the documents and information for more than a month?
Is there anyone who’s faced the same situation? What kind of actions should I take against Binance to get my funds back?
Dear Binance u/Jager_Binance,
3 weeks ago you blocked my account and after a long conversation because of my “security issue”, still nothing.
My account is 3rd level verified, allowing me to take out more than 100 Bitcoins per day, the account isn’t inactive or suspicious. As soon as I noticed my account was frozen, I applied to have it unfrozen, but then you cancelled that and responded me with documents request and I gave you at least five documents you asked for in order to verify it was really me and even had a more than hour-long video call with you.
I’ve done everything you’ve asked by the strong deadlines you’ve given, and then you just ignore me and don’t answer me at all. I can’t get any information from you about the process of unblocking my account and you still have all of my money; I can’t get any of it back. Could you please answer me and give me a reason for all of this?
Everything you’ve said to this point hasn’t been true or according to your rules. I’d really appreciate some clarity and some answers.
What I’d like to know is, what is the real reason for blocking my account? Please PM me!
Why are you ignoring me? Could you comment on this? Why do I have to make all these things public just to attract your attention?
That was an official Binance answer before they blocked me in their official subreddit
u/Jager_Binance I have already provided EVERYTHING you have requested and more! Why are you still ignoring me after 2 weeks of conversations? You’ve given me no choice but to make it public. 3 messages without any reply!
Erik Voorhees signed the following statement:
Some exchanges intend to list BTU and all of us will try to take steps to preserve and enable access to customers' BTU. However, none of the undersigned can list BTU unless we can run both chains independently without incident. Consequently, we insist that the Bitcoin Unlimited community (or any other consensus breaking implementation) build in strong two-way replay protection. Failure to do so will impede our ability to preserve BTU for customers and will either delay or outright preclude the listing of BTU.
After committing to this key safety feature, of strong to way replay protection, he has now backed out of the agreement. Erik now supports 2x, which does not include strong replay two-way replay protection. Erik then tried to twist the meaning of words saying 2x was not "consensus breaking", since it has consensus. This is clearly not what the commitment means, it uses the words consensus to mean consensus rules, not "community consensus". Besides, there is not community consensus for 2x anyway, saying so is arrogant.
Erik cannot face up to the truth, so decided to block me on Twitter instead.
Does Voorhee's word mean nothing?
