Most importantly, we prioritize user protection because our users are at the heart of everything we do. As we continue to grow, we strive to enforce rigorous safety measures to ensure users can enjoy a secure peer-to-peer (P2P) crypto trading experience.

In this article, we'll walk you through some of the security measures we've implemented to ensure a secure trading environment on our P2P trading platform. 

The Importance of Safe Transactions 

P2P trading is a convenient and straightforward way to buy and sell crypto, especially for users who prefer a greater variety of payment methods. The P2P trading process has come a long way since its inception but there are still potential risks involved in P2P crypto trading. 

To keep malicious actors away from our platform and to give our users peace of mind, we’ve implemented several robust security features, such as rapid security updates, merchant verification, an escrow service to safeguard transactions, and 24/7 customer support.

As a P2P Trader, How am I Protected?

Our users are at the core of our P2P platform and wider ecosystem. Below, we’ve highlighted the key features on our P2P platform that help create a safer trading environment for our users. 

Escrow Service

All online trades on the Binance P2P platform are protected by our crypto escrow service, a holding mechanism for funds in any pending transaction. When a seller posts an ad, we will automatically reserve the amount for the ad from their Funding Wallet. If the seller takes your money without completing their part of the trade, our customer support team can release the crypto to you from the reserved funds. Our escrow service helps minimize incidents of scams and theft by adding an extra layer of trust.

Appeals Management

While the majority of transactions on our P2P trading platform occur without any problem, users can also appeal a transaction if communication with a counterparty fails and conflict arises.

Customer Support

If you have any inquiries or concerns regarding an issue with our trading platform, you can seek assistance from a customer support representative via our chat support function. Our customer support team will provide prompt responses to help troubleshoot your problems. We also offer 24/7 customer service that can help address urgent needs.

Regular Security Updates

To keep our platform safe and honor our ongoing commitment to user protection, we've implemented numerous security updates to the Binance P2P platform in the past year. This includes more stringent ad requirements and improved risk management algorithms. 

Verified Merchants 

We enforce a strict vetting process for all our verified merchants to give users a more secure P2P trading experience. Users can choose to transact only with verified merchants by filtering their P2P ad screen to "verified merchants only".

User Education

On top of the several safeguards on our platform, we also provide users with a wide range of educational content, including webinars, FAQs, comprehensive how-to guides, and security tips
