Binance backed out after reviewing the company's structure and books, it said in a statement to the Wall Street Journal.

"Our hope was to be able to support FTX customers by providing liquidity, but the issues are beyond our control or ability to assist," Binance said.

"As a result of corporate due diligence, as well as recent news regarding the mismanagement of client funds and alleged investigations by US agencies, we have decided not to pursue the potential acquisition of FTX," Binance said in a statement. a tweet.

“Every time a major player in an industry fails, retail consumers suffer,” Binance continued. "Over the last few years we have seen the crypto ecosystem become more resilient and we believe that over time all companies that abuse user funds will be eliminated from the free market."
