Mazars removes Binance’s report
Shortly after Friday’s announcement, Binance’s Proof of Reserves report was removed by the Mazars. A spokesperson for Binance said:
“Mazars has indicated that their work with all crypto clients worldwide will be temporarily halted. This means that we won’t be able to work for Mazars at the moment.


Changpeng Zhao, Binance CEO, stated that they are currently working with other firms of auditors without naming one. CZ stated that many auditing firms aren’t equipped to audit crypto users and blockchain. He also stated that many audit firms are afraid of crypto businesses.
“There were a few audit firms that audited FTX, and they got burned because the stamp of approval was given. I don’t know how they did their audits. But audits don’t reveal every problem,” continued Zhao.
Over the past week, there have been many questions about Binance’s health. This has led to significant selling of the BNB token. The exchange has managed outflows of $4Billion so far. CZ stated that the exchange is financially sound and there is no reason to be concerned.
