On Wednesday, the value of all Binance USD was around $10.5 billion, down from $16.1 billion on February 13, according to market tracker CoinGecko.

The Financial Times reported on Wednesday that investors have withdrawn more than $6 billion from Binance’s token in the past month, citing data from blockchain analytics firm Nansen.

Analysts said the NYDFS move represented a setback in Binance’s efforts to gain market share from the largest stablecoins.
