Binance Ready to Expand in Europe
Recently, Binance announced that its Italian legal entity has registered with the regulator in the country, as major cryptocurrency exchanges seek to gain traction in Europe.
Reporting from Channel News Asia, Tuesday (31/5/2022), the registration of Binance Italy, which was established in recent months, has the potential to make the company more accountable and reduce the prospect of money laundering.
Binance says it can now open an office in Italy and expand its local team. The company is one of 14 virtual asset operators registered with the Organismo degli Agenti e dei Mediatori (OAM), which regulates the crypto industry in Italy.
The move comes nearly a year after Binance was forced to roll back its product offerings across Europe after coming under scrutiny from regulators. In Italy, the company had to discontinue its futures and derivatives business.

Throughout 2022, Binance has greatly boosted its expansion to various parts of the world. A few months ago, Binance managed to get a temporary green light from regulator Abu Dhabi, deepening its expansion in the Middle East.
The company said it was granted approval by the Financial Services Regulatory Authority of Abu Dhabi Global Markets to operate as a broker-dealer in digital assets.

This is the second city to be approved by Binance. Previously, Binance received a crypto license in Dubai in March 2022. This move also came after Binance was legalized in Bahrain by the country’s central bank.
Binance has been trying to push its expansion into the Middle East market after getting a cold reception in several other countries.
