Now that the markets enter July with late June rebounds, it will take more than recoveries to respond against security threats on the trading channels.

Binance, which has traded around $1.5 billion in the last 24 hours, has resumed its services after a temporary suspension in light of the irregular pattern of Syscoin (SYS) trades.

While Binance hasn’t disclosed exact details, the altcoin seemed to have been trading at a staggering 96 BTC during the incident. Binance said that they have now stopped all the irregular trades and has taken additional measures for their user’s recovery.

The United Kingdom, in the meanwhile, has encouraged the use of blockchain in their ecosystem “to enable social freedom, to increase efficiency, and to rebuild societal trust.”
