Crypto Exchange, Binance Has Received Regulatory Approval To Operate In Italy

30 May 2022

The world’s largest crypto exchange has gained regulatory approval in Italy as it continues its expansion to new regions. 
Binance Italy has registered as a cryptocurrency service provider with the Organismo Agenti e Mediatori (OAM) — a requirement under the country’s legislation. The approval allows the company to offer crypto products to customers in Italy, as well as open offices and expand its team in the country. 
“Clear and effective regulation is essential for mainstream adoption of cryptocurrencies,” Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao said in a statement. “Binance has always put its users first and, with actions such as the implementation of the register, they can be confident that our platform is among the safest and most trustworthy in the world.”
A Binance spokesperson did not immediately return a request for comment about specific products it could look to offer in Italy or other regions in which it is seeking regulatory approval. 
The news follows Binance’s registration earlier this month as a digital asset service provider in France by the Autorité des marchés financiers (AMF). 
Binance France CEO David Princay called the registration “a key milestone for crypto in Europe,” noting that the new levels of protection for anti-money laundering will help grow crypto adoption and liquidity across the continent.
