On the other hand, a representative of BAM also came forward to share their opinions on the partnership. The representative’s statement read,
It is an honor to partner with Binance to launch the U.S. extension of Binance, leveraging its tier-one security and technology in tandem.
The representative also said that by partnering with Binance, their company is committed to offering a thoroughly compliant and secure platform to users.
Although users based in the US could access Binance’s platform until now, this partnership will mark the exchange’s official debut into the States’ crypto market.
As far as BAM Trading Services is concerned, there is very little information available about the company. The firm has been registered with the FinCEN (Financial Crimes Enforcement Network) of the United States Treasury as a business that’s involved in money services. The registration was recently obtained on 11th June 2019. The company’s registered address is noted to be in California’s San Francisco, as per the records.
In addition to that, it was also noted that BAM is seemingly working closely with an entity called Koi Compliance. Koi Compliance is the total managed solutions division of Koi Trading, an OTC digital currency trading firm. In fact, BAM’s mailing address as provided on the registration of FinCEN is in the care of Koi. For those who are unaware, Binance Labs had made an investment of 3 million dollars into Koi Trading back in January this year.
