Global cryptocurrency exchange Binance allegedly had access to a bank account owned by its independent US partner and transferred millions of dollars from the account to a trading firm managed by the company’s CEO, Changpeng Zhao. According to banking records and company messages, over $400 million was transferred to Merit Peak Ltd, a trading firm, from the Binance.US account at Silvergate Bank over the first three months of 2021. The reason for the transfers or whether they involved Binance.US customers’ money remains unclear.
