Tracking the Times That CZ From Binance Has Stated Withdrawals Will Be Open

Since the reported hack of Binance on May 7th, withdrawals have been disabled on the platform.

At the time of writing (May 15th, 2019; 1:25 p.m. EST/GMT-5), withdrawals are still disabled.

In order to keep an accurate record of what’s going on (just in case shit does hit the fan), here is a running count of the number of times that CZ has insisted that withdrawals will be available at some point in the near future. All claims are listed in chronological order from oldest to newest.

CZ Withdrawal Claim #1

https://twitter.com/cz_binance/status/1127058860387135488

This claim was made on May 10th, 2019 signaling that withdrawals would be available in the “early part of next week”. May 10th was a Friday. The early part of next week would constitute Monday through Wednesday (May 13th-15th). This promise has yet to be fulfilled.

CZ Withdrawal Claim #2

[Bonus]: CZ Response to “Cryptomanran”

This one is a bit cryptic, but worth saving.

CZ Withdrawal Claim #6

https://twitter.com/cz_binance/status/1127609514818248709

This is the first and only time that CZ gives a definitive time for when withdrawals will be enabled on the platform.

Tuesday = May 14th.

Obviously, for whatever reason, did this not occur.

CZ Withdrawal Claim #7

https://twitter.com/cz_binance/status/1127789438782689280

This claim was made on May 13th, 2019 — which strongly implies that funds would be delivered on or about May 14th, 2019. This did not happen.

CZ Withdrawal Claim #8

https://twitter.com/cz_binance/status/1127927636078936064

Again, on May 13th, Changpeng Zhao [CZ] chooses to respond to a customer asking for a definitive time frame for withdrawals to be enabled with a “soon”.

CZ Withdrawal Claim #9

https://twitter.com/cz_binance/status/1127787263520149504

CZ doubles down on the claim that he made on Sunday, May 12th, 2019 when he stated that withdrawals would be opened on Tuesday (14th).

The tweet above was sent on the 13th.

CZ Withdrawal Claim #10

https://twitter.com/cz_binance/status/1128175473635123200

In this tweet, CZ claims that Binance is on the ‘final stretch’ and strongly implies that the exchange will be restored to full functionality following the newly “scheduled maintenance”. This scheduled maintenance was slated for May 15th 11: p.m. — 6:30 p.m.

The maintenance has concluded and there are no withdrawals enabled at the time of writing (1:44 p.m. EST).

CZ Withdrawal Claim #11

https://twitter.com/cz_binance/status/1128178315821326338

In this post, CZ essentially confirms that he won’t be able to fulfill his initial promise of the withdrawals being enabled on May 14th. The can is kicked a bit further down the road.

CZ Withdrawal Claim #12

https://twitter.com/cz_binance/status/1128182997432262656

CZ essentially confirms that the May 14th deadline will not be reached in this tweet.

CZ Withdrawal Claim #13

https://twitter.com/cz_binance/status/1128334853596803072

Based on the tweet above, the withdrawals should have been available at the top of May 15th (in 12 hours).

CZ Withdrawal Claim #14

https://twitter.com/cz_binance/status/1128637452002807810

CZ states, “Withdrawals will follow shortly after that.”

Unfortunately, it does not appear that withdrawals have followed shortly after, as this tweet was issued 6 hours ago at the time of writing and withdrawals are still not enabled.

CZ Withdrawal Claim #15

https://twitter.com/cz_binance/status/1128660435530440705

Again, the promise of the withdrawals being activated soon was reiterated just two hours after the previous promise.

At the time of writing, withdrawals are still not active.

CZ Withdrawal Claim #16

https://twitter.com/cz_binance/status/1128711814064140288

This is the most recent claim (list will be updated periodically; all tweets have been duly archived in case of deletion).
