Recall the FCA x Binance case
The UK was one of the first countries to issue a warning report on financial misconduct.
“Accounting Markets Limited is not allowed to carry out any regulatory activities in the UK. As regulated by the FCA, Binance Markets Limited is not allowed to carry out any regulated activities without the prior written permission of the FCA,” the FCA said at the time.
Japan, Canada, the Cayman Islands, Singapore, Malta, Poland, Italy and the Netherlands followed suit. This pressure from regulators has led finance to take a more proactive approach to global regulatory compliance. Among other things, Finance has already reduced lending and stopped derivative offers in Europe and Hong Kong. In addition, the company ended support for stock tokens. At the same time, it has appointed senior officials to international coordination committees and advisory committees. The most recent hire was former U.S. federal investigator Greg Monahan.
Most recently, the exchange stated that all users should know your customer or complete KYC verification. Apparently, these measures made the finance comply with the requirements set by the FCA. However, as mentioned, the broker has not yet been able to operate in the country. Despite this, the company’s CEO Zhang Peng Zhao (CZ) celebrated the FCA update:
“Positive progress. One small step at a time. Slow but always,” CZ wrote.
