Changpeng Zhao, the CEO of Binance, said that U.S.-based platform’s operations would be headed by the company, BAM Trading Services, which is a money servicing company based out of California. Given the news that BAM will be heading one of the most coveted cryptocurrency exchange to start its execution in the markets of the U.S., not much is known regarding this firm or its operations.
Binance.US was launched earlier this year in San Francisco. With main headquarters in Malta, Binance is available physically at locations in Hong Kong, Singapore, Jersey, and Uganda.
Binance restrained U.S. users earlier this year after the bedlam and skepticism of the regulatory authorities. Right before the suspension of the U.S. came through, a collaboration with BAM Trading Services was laid out.
New York will remain devoid of the services of new U.S. exchange because of the ‘BitLicense’ necessity for regulations. Last reported in August, Binance hasn’t yet registered for the license.
Binance.US had not yet replied to a request for a response.
