Top crypto exchange service provider, Binance has revealed in a short announcement that it is opening withdrawal and deposits for Bitcoin Diamond (BCD).
Binance participated in the hard fork by distributing Bitcoin Diamond balances but did not allow new deposits or withdrawals. This resulted in limited availability of BCD for trading on Binance and allowed trading only for the amount of BTC held by the exchange.

The lid has been lifted and users can now trade the hard fork coin on Binance freely. The inflation of BCD prices noticed across niche exchanges after the Binance lockdown is expected to return to normal. This activity is already taking place as the graph below reveals.
