Binance requires all US customers to use separate trading platform

posted 3 months ago
Binance.com, the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange, updated its terms of use agreement on June 14th stating “Binance is unable to provide services to any U.S. person.” The news comes less than a day after Binance announced it was formally expanding to the US via a dedicated platform.

Binance went on to say that it does “...comply with global compliance requirements” and that, effective Sept. 12th, 2019, “users who are not in accordance with Binance’s Terms of Use will continue to have access to their wallets and funds, but will no longer be able to trade or deposit on Binance.com.” Previously, Binance listed 15 countries and 6 US states (including New York) on a “restricted countries list” page.
