Binance Shuts Down in Germany, Italy and Netherlands

It seems there would never come an end to all the allegations put upon the largest cryptocurrency exchange in terms of market capitalization. Accordingly, Binance now faces another country in opposition to it.  The Netherland’s central bank, De Nederlandsche Bank has now issued warnings to Binance upon carrying out its business in the country. In spite of this, this accounts for the fourth central European country to proclaim against Binance.

Dutch Bank’s Warnings

De Nederlandsche Bank is the prominent central bank of the Netherlands. Despite the start of this month, Binance has declared that it will be officially soon moving out of the Netherlands and also other European countries like Germany and Italy.

In spite of all this, the central bank of the Netherlands officially announced Biance’s illicit business operations throughout the country on Wednesday. In addition, the Dutch bank states that Binance and all of its attributes do not hold a valid registration or license.

Also, the Dutch bank says that  Binance is now in the account of violating the Netherlands Anti-Money Laundering and Anti-Terrorist Financing Act. Moreover, they portray that all Binance users are subject to money laundering and also helping finance terrorists. Accordingly, the Dutch bank states that all services on offer by Binance are illegal and against the law as they fail to possess a valid registration. 

Moreover, the Dutch bank criticizes Biance completely with all its entities globally. In spite of this, they have put forth a warning notice to all the entities under Binance operating in the country. 

Binance Defenses 

Furthermore citing all these allegations, the team from Binance insists that they are constantly working together with the authorities in the Netherlands, to obtain valid registrations and licenses. In addition, Binance defends themselves that they are working earnestly towards the legal documents and registrations. 

However, Binance claims that they have their own framework for preventing any kind of hacks, money laundering prevention, and also a financing for terrorists. 

On the other hand, the CEO of Binance, Changpeng Zhao aka CZ details that they focused more on getting regulations cleared and registered with the local compliance without realizing the day-to-day business at stake. Besides, CZ remains so positive and depicts all the necessary registrations will be cleared off as soon as possible.

On the contrary, CZ states such regulations and registrations are vital for effortless operations for a firm over the long run. Moreover, the list of countries against Binance seems to be going on like Japan, Singapore, Thailand, Germany, Italy, Cayman Islands, Malaysia, Poland, United Kingdom, and Canada too.
