The company has also indicated that deposits that are not completed before the start of the update will be processed once this process is completed. As with any normal update process, it will take a period of time for users to see their updated balances reflected in their wallets.

Importantly, Binance indicates that once the update is ready, they will let the public know the culmination of this process and allow users to cancel any open order before resuming operations during a 30-minute window.

Binance highlights that the deposits, withdrawals and other functions related to the account as ‘settings' will be available once the update is completed.
