Along with this, the Financial Regulation Office of Florida has also issued an emergency suspension order against the money transmitter licence of Binance.US. This step has been taken keeping in mind the safety of investors. Addressing these challenges has become a necessary step for Binance.US, which requires Binance.US to cooperate with regulators.
Binance US is in trouble, with operations halted in both Florida and Alaska. The denial of license renewal in Alaska and the suspension in Florida reflect the regulatory body’s increasing control over compliance in the US cryptocurrency market. These steps taken by regulators have significant implications not only for Binance but also for the entire cryptocurrency industry. Let us tell you that this step has been taken by the regulators after Binance founder and former CEO CZ was convicted on charges of violating the US anti-money laundering policy.
Binance has been facing regulatory challenges for a long time
Binance has been facing regulatory challenges for a long time. In the United States, Binance is facing two separate lawsuits from local commodities and securities regulators, where Binance and its top executives were accused of violating multiple financial regulations. Also last year, Australia’s financial regulator revoked Binance Australia’s derivatives licence. Also his offices were searched.
Along with this, citing regulatory controls, Binance had said goodbye to Canada. Also, due to sanctions, Binance had also closed its operations in Russia. Along with this, after facing continuous investigations for a long time, the CEO of crypto exchange Changpeng Zhao had to resign from his post after being found guilty of violating US anti-money laundering laws. Along with this, strict steps have been taken regarding compliance on Binance in India also. In view of all these matters, Binance needs to pay attention to its regulatory policy.
