Binance has announced the resumption of registration of new users, and also urged users from reselling or buying accounts.

The Hong Kong-based cryptocurrency exchange Binance, which earlier suspended the registration of new users due to high demand, announced that it will re-open user registration starting today. Registration will be limited. Every day at a certain time, new users will be allowed to create new accounts, but the exact time will not be reported.

"To ensure performance for our existing users, only a limited number of new registrations will be allowed each day.  Registration open times will vary from day to day, without prior announcement," the exchange said in a statement.

Additionally, the Binance Referral Program commission rebate will be adjusted to 20%.

"We would also like to remind our users again that the selling of Binance accounts is strictly forbidden. For the safety of your funds, we will freeze and disable all Binance accounts that are identified as being bought/sold," Binance said in a statement.

Earlier, a number of large crypto-exchanges, such as Bitfinex, Bittrex, Kraken, CEX, announced the suspension of registration of new users due to too high demand. Amid the closure of major exchange sites for new users, forums and social networks have been fulfilling with announcements on the sale of accounts on these exchanges.

The price varies from several hundred to thousands of US dollars.
