binance: Binance launches proof-of-reserves system for Bitcoin reserves

Synopsis

Regarding user assets, the business creates a cryptographic seal using a Merkle tree that contains all individual user accounts. A few weeks ago, the crypto exchange company began by sharing wallet addresses for cryptocurrency assets worth billions of dollars.

World’s largest crypto exchange Binance has launched a new website to explain its proof-of-reserves system, and is starting with Bitcoin (BTC) reserves.

The company currently has a 101 per cent reserve ratio. This indicates that it has enough BTCs available to cover every user’s balance, reports TechCrunch.

With the new proof-of-reserves website, the crypto exchange company confirmed that its own money is not included in the BTC wallets used in the proof-of-reserves system.

“It is important to note that this does not include Binance’s corporate holdings, which are kept on a completely separate ledger,” the company was quoted as saying in the report.

The company demonstrated with this action that it does own a lot of assets and is capable of processing a ton of withdrawals, the report said.

However, Binance didn’t make it clear whether those assets are of users, or of its own balance sheet, or a combination of both.
