The announcement also comes just weeks after the cryptocurrency exchange came under CFTC investigation for allegedly offering leverage trading to US customers. The crypto exchange is currently focused on expanding its services outside the Asia Pacific region and especially in the United States which is currently dominated by the likes of Coinbase.
Binance had also appointed former US ambassador to China Max Baucus as the company’s government advisor on March 11, a clear indication of an aggressive approach in the US.
