Besides, making the code public will also help hackers, it will be simply a toss of a coin, who will find the flaw first, a good guy or a bad guy.


That's absolutely NOT how open source code works. It's actually the safest code because it is picked apart by the community to ensure that it is safe before it is released. When has Bitcoin been hacked? Closed code is notorious for having security issues & vulnerabilities, plus you have no idea what's in that code of course.

Unofficial & Uncensored SYSCOIN thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4748031.0    Do not trust Yobit/HitBTC/BiteBTC/coinsbit/p2pb2b/Mercatox/C-cex/Poloniex/WEX/KuCoin/LiveCoin/TheRockTrading/Bitfinex/ADAB/Okex/TradeSatoshi scam exchanges or ICO's by known scammers like HashCoins/Ambisafe/Bountyhive - they WILL scam you! Use diligence & research. Buy coins, sell coins - don't invest in stupid shit. If your questions aren't answered - don't touch it.

The bitcoin code has proven to have flaws a lot of times and a lot of times new versions fixed have been rushed.
And this is exactly how open source code works, you let people know your code, you let everyone know how the code is written and how it works. Just because 20 guys said: ok this version is ok it doesn't mean it is.

And the supreme argument why it is not better like that is that nobody is doing!!!  Grin

Binance is supposed to be beyond hacking as we expect that it can avail of the best and the most expensive security technology available at hand. Unfortunately, nothing is really secured in our modern interconnected world as hackers, phishers, scammers and all their cohorts are one step ahead of the game. In fact, the best way to do is to hire those hackers into your side...this is a good idea that Binance should look into. The reality is that Binance can be hacked, what about ordinary guys and gals like us?
Grin Cheesy Grin Wow! Hire them to your side! If only that was truly possible, because first of all they hide their true identities. Expect they make a publication stating their intention (with the peace flag). Then just maybe, one of them might show interest to work with the company or organization. But on a second thought, how much can the organization pay them when they can easily get their desired amount from their comfortable zone?. So the possibility of this happening is slim. Also , if they do agree to the terms and conditions, what's the guarantee that they will not be apprehended?

I reckon that the only reason none of the exchanges are doing it is because none of them want their code to be copied and have a competing exchange with the same code. However, if the code is opensource, it would be developed and improved upon faster, patches for bugs and flaws will be coded faster and it might be the most secure code that an exchange can have.

Also, the closed source model has already been proven that it is not immune to attacks which they are protecting their software from.
