Binance in Talks for Regulatory Approval in Germany, CEO Says

Don't miss CoinDesk's Consensus 2022, the must-attend crypto & blockchain festival experience of the year in Austin, TX this June 9-12.

Cryptocurrency exchange Binance is in talks to gain regulatory approval in Germany, founder and CEO Changpeng "CZ" Zhao said.

  • Binance is recruiting compliance personnel for its team in Germany and hopes to win a license there, he said at an event in Hamburg on Wednesday.

  • "Our team is definitely talking with regulators here," he said.

  • Binance recently registered as a digital asset service provider with the Autorité des Marchés Financiers (AMF) in France.

  • Having already obtained approval to operate in Bahrain, Abu Dhabi and Dubai, Binance turned its attention to securing licenses in the world's largest marketplaces.

  • A license in Germany, Europe's largest economy, could open the door to greater regulatory approval elsewhere on the continent.
