As of press time, the exchange has seen $10,481,594 in daily traded volume, according to data shared by Binance America CEO, Catherine Coley.

Binance.US has also this week increased ACH limits for USD deposits and withdrawals, with users now able to send an initial ACH deposit of up to $5,000. After 10 days, their ACH deposit limits will increase to $30,000.
