How Will Markets Behave When Binance Goes For An 8-hour Shutdown For System Upgrade

Binance, one of the worlds leading crypto exchange, will be undergoing a refresher as the exchange has announced that they would be upgrading their systems and would stop all operations for 8 hours.

Will we see a drop in prices as Binance would go offline

While Binance has announced that it will be performing a scheduled system upgrade starting on 12th March 2019 at 2:00 AM (UTC), a lot of people have already started anticipating of how the prices would react in the market when there would be no trades and volumes from one of the largest crypto exchange.

According to the official announcement, the exchange will be down for 8 hours and it will suspend deposits, withdrawals, and trading during this period. The announcement also stated that deposits that were not completed before the start of the upgrade will be processed after the upgrade is complete. The exchange has also said 8 hours is an approximate time and this could vary.

Now a 2 am UTC time means it would be 11 am in Korea and Japan and 10 am in Hongkong which means the exchange would be down in most working day hours in eastern countries. This could impact the overall volumes coming on from this country and could keep the markets down for the day. A lot of users on Twitter also exclaimed the same

While a lot of people were considered about the reason for this system upgrade a twitter user reminded that the last upgrade that happened just before the BCH hard fork saw the BTC collapse from USD 6000 to USD 3000 levels

There could be an impact on Binance Coin (BNB) as well, that has been a superstar for the month, which may see some cooling as Binance is the exchange where the coin draws its maximum volumes from
