Binance Addressing US Senators’ Allegations of Illegal Activity

Binance Addressing US Senators’ Allegations of Illegal Activity

Cryptocurrency exchange Binance responded to the allegations made by US Senators Elizabeth Warren, Chris Van Hollen, and Roger Marshall that the platform facilitated illegal financial activities.

In their letter to Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao and Binance.US President Brian Shroder, the senators claimed that the exchange enabled payments to criminals and sanctions evaders while purposely evading regulators and hiding financial information.

Binance issued an open letter on March 28th, stating that the accusations made by the senators were based on outdated and incomplete information about the platform.

The firm emphasized its commitment to regulatory compliance and establishing a separate US entity, Binance.US, to ensure compliance with local regulations.

The company also highlighted its efforts to provide a safe and transparent platform, including sharing wallet addresses, publishing proof of reserves, and implementing user security measures, such as the Margin Insurance Fund, to protect users from losses.

In response, Binance stated its dedication to adhering to regulations and transparency and its endeavors to offer its clients a trustworthy and protected platform.
