Binance receives green light in France
The nod from the Autorité des marchés financiers (AMF) and the Autorité de Contrôle Prudentiel et de Résolution (ACPR), France’s regulatory bodies for financial markets, came as Binance’s first approval to operate in Europe. Meanwhile, the crypto exchange is the world’s largest exchange by volume and is the first major global crypto exchange to set up shop in France.
According to the AMF, registration requires checks to ensure that the managers and beneficial owners have a good reputation and competence and compliance with anti-money laundering and combating the financing of terrorism laws. Following the registration approval, the exchange stated that it would “significantly scale” its operations in France.
