Binance tweeted, “In the beginning, our hope was to be able to support FTX’s customers to provide liquidity, but the issues are beyond our control or ability to help.”

Binance has pulled out of its agreement to purchase FTX after going through the latter's finances.

According to official reports, Binance had discovered a “big hole” in FTX’s balance sheet within a day of beginning its investigation of FTX. Binance noted that it walked away from the deal after conducting its due diligence on FTX.
