Binance is back up and running and the BNB token is again trading above $25.

The world’s largest crypto exchange has been closed since the hack that saw 7,000 BTC disappear from the exchange worth $40 million at the time (a lot more than that now).

Chief executive Changpeng Zhao (CZ) has been very forthcoming with Binance customers, regularly tweeting and even doing a YouTube AMA (ask me anything).

A full service has resumed, with withdrawals “for most tokens” now available.

The exchange’s BNB token has seen a 357% gain this year on the back of a slew of initiatives from the exchange, which includes its move into crowdfundings with its Launchpad platform and the creation of its own blockchain and DEX.

With trading back up and running the price of the BNB is likely to recommence its outperformance among altcoins.
