Binance Reduces the Number of Block Confirmations on BTC and ETH Networks for Deposits & Withdrawals

Binance crypto exchange recently announced that it has eased the procedure of deposits and withdrawals on BTC (Bitcoin) and ETH (Ether) blockchain networks. It has brought down the Number of Confirmations.  The announcement noted the community and user feedback as the reason for this improvement.

On a public blockchain network, a block confirmation means the inclusion of a transaction in a block on the blockchain. Generally, the miners on the public blockchain network validate and add transaction to the block. As an example, if 31 blocks are confirmed for a given transaction then it means that 30 blocks are successfully mined since the transaction.

In the year 2018, Binance has also achieved the title for being the biggest cryptocurrency exchange in the world in terms of the trading volume.
