The exchange also claims it will increase ERC20 withdrawal fees up to 0.01 ETH from 0.006 ETH.
To better facilitate ERC20 and ETH withdrawals during this period of high congestion on the $ETH network, we are making the following temporary adjustments:— Binance (@binance) March 12, 2020
ETH withdrawal 0.003 ETH is now 0.006 ETH
ERC20 withdrawal 0.006 ETH is now 0.01 ETH
Withdrawals will re-open shortly. pic.twitter.com/gN4s0GPzKB
Meanwhile, not everyone agreed with such an adjustment, calling the decision to increase fees amid market crash a "robbery."
