Furthermore, Binance acknowledges the inconvenience caused and apologizes for the situation stressing that the suspension is a result of the recent situation with the Multichain (MULTI) protocol.
Recently, Multichain has experienced problematic situations surrounding it. There have been reports that the protocol’s co-founder Zhao Jun has been a person of interest in a police investigation and has been AWOL, making his team unable to contact him. Also, the termination of Multichain cross-chain bridge services had a major impact on Fantom.
In a subsequent update, it was reported that some cross-chain bridges of the Multichain protocol came back online after some transactions were confirmed by blockchain experts.
However, there have been no further updates since then. Consequently, Binance suspends support for these multichain-bridged tokens pending clarification from the team behind it.
Multichain (MULTI) price today
According to a live update from CoinMarketCap, the price of MULTI tokens today is $3.20. The price is down 4.16% in the last 24 hours. What’s more, MULTI is ranked #379 on the CoinMarketCap chart with a live market cap of $46,534,492 ($46 million).
