Changpeng Zhao, CEO, Binance, informed that due to user signups and trades jumping to a record high, the systems of Binance were a lot under stress. Friday was a roller coaster ride in the crypto market for traders as the crypto prices surged. The market showed the positive form after Elon Musk, Founder, Tesla Inc. added a bitcoin on his Twitter profile and posted a mock magazine cover of a whippet in a red sweater. It was misinterpreted as a sign of support for Dogecoin. 

While talking to one of the media houses, Zhao said a shortage of Doge coins. There was a problem with the system as it could not generate enough new addresses fast to match new addresses coming in. 

However, the Binance corporate account has later posted that all backlogs had been cleared and the system is back on track. The withdrawals are also about to stock.

The exchange allocates 10% of all trading fees received into the fund to protect client money in extreme cases.
