⁉️ What Happened with Binance? ⁉️
The UK’s FCA dropped a consumer warning about Binance Markets Limited back on the 26th of July. That stated that Binance Markets Limited wasn’t permitted to undertake regulated activity in the UK. It also went on to say that no other entity in the Binance Group holds any form of UK authorization, registration or license to conduct regulated activity in the UK All that led to many Brits worrying if Binance was going to be barred from serving the UK market Thos chaps at Binance responded the next day, explaining that the notice only referred to Binance Markets Limited and that services provided by Binance.com were not provided by this entity. Therefore, that FCA notice had no impact on services offered by Binance. Despite this, UK customers on Binance started reporting GBP withdrawal issues on the exchange. It transpired that their payment processor, Clear Junction, had dropped then thanks to that FCA notice. Things got even worse when Binance users started reporting problems with SEPA deposits. So, the problem spread to the rest of Europe.
💰 Who Not to Bank With? 💰
The plot in the Binance saga thickens, with Barclay’s leading the charge against Binance. Santander joined them hours later. Both banks sent messages to customers saying that they were blocking payments to Binance due to that FCA Then you have NatWest who placed limits on the amounts that users could transfer to crypto exchanges just days before the FCA ban HSBC went even further earlier this year by saying that “HSBC will not process cryptocurrency payments”
