“In other news, Binance is seeing increasing rumours after losing multiple fiat gateways, first in the US and then supposedly in the EU. However, coincidentally with India’s landing of Chandrayaan 3 on the moon, Binance has tied up with ‘MoonPay’ in the United States to help people buy USDT seamlessly,” Hudda noted.
