Recently Binance was forced to respond to allegations by a Twitter user, doublejump claiming that Binance futures platforms are not well equipped with the necessary features. doublejump wrote:

“Platform A is unusable because of its contract size granularity, but does have a nice interface and decent specifications otherwise. Platform B is not documented well and has an unwieldy leverage system.”

In response to the above claims, Binance told Cointelegraph:

“Need to correct this point. Platform A does allow transactions below 1 BTC (in lots of 0.001 BTC) but the web UI has some major input validation issues, probably causing issues with my European localized system which does not use a period to separate decimals.”
