Binance.US’ Bitcoin premium comes shortly after Binance, the main global exchange, suffered major withdrawal issues on May 7.

The exchange was forced to close withdrawals amid Bitcoin facing unusual mempool congestion, with more than 400,000 transactions getting stuck on the Bitcoin blockchain. The event apparently triggered Binance to finally consider the addition of the Lightning Network on its platform, which is designed to speed up BTC transactions and make them less expensive.
