CoinMarketCap nodes to proof of reserves
The infamous implosion of FTX, one of the world’s biggest crypto exchanges, brewed distrust in investors for centralized exchanges (CEXs). To win back the trust of users, CEXs began launching proof of fund reserves.
To foster trust in the crypto industry through transparency, CoinMarketCap, a leading market researcher and tracker in the crypto industry, has launched a proof-of-reserve tracker for exchanges.

CoinMarketCap took to Twitter to share its update on Binance, revealing over $65 billion on its public addresses. CoinMarketCap’s PoR information is also available for Bitfinex, ByBit, Crypto.com, Deribit, KuCoin, Huobi, and OKX.
