Is Binance seeking HQ in Dubai? These clues suggest so
After it failed to acquire regulatory approval in Singapore, WORLD‘s largest crypto exchange platform, BINANCE CEO, Changpeng Zhao was spotted in Dubai, attending a meeting with the authorities. The Chinese Journalist, Colin Wu tweeted today, that many exchanges including China’s largest exchange, Huobi have been approaching Dubai to set up shop. Following Wu Blockchains lead, it can be speculated that like Huobi, Binance is also seeking to set up its Headquarters in Dubai.
Last month, in lieu of regulatory pressure, Binance announced the suspension of spot trading, fiat purchase channels, liquid swap, and fiat deposit functions in Singapore, effective from 26th October. Furthermore, the exchange also appealed to its Singapore users to withdraw their tokens and cease their trades by the effective date.
“As the market leader, Binance constantly evaluates its product and service offerings. We will be restricting Singapore users in respect of the Regulated Payments Services in-line with our commitment to compliance. Users in Singapore are advised to cease all related trades, withdraw fiat assets and redeem tokens by Wednesday, 2021-10-26 04:00 AM UTC (12:00 PM UTC+8) to avoid potential trading disputes.”
Binance Regulatory Crackdown and Compliance
Binance has suffered the regulators wrath by the Securities Commission of Singapore, which began its crackdown on the exchange by enlisting Binance.com in Investor Alert List. Furthermore, multiple regulatory authorities globally, banned or warned the exchange of its unregistered status. From Singapore, UK, Hong Kong, Japan, to Cayman Islands, South Africa, and many more, Binance lost to regulatory isolation and finally opted to compliance
Binance has now announced working towards centralizing its operations by restoring its relationship with the regulators after facing a global regulatory crackdown. Towards the end of the bearish third quarter, Binance revealed that it is conducting conversations with multiple regulators, in lieu of acquiring their approvals. Binance confirmed that it will be building a centralized headquartered financial institution, and further giving up the decentralized method of operations.
“As the largest player in the industry, we need to prepare ourselves for the shift. We are making changes to make it easier to work with regulators,”, Zhao told the South China Morning Post.
