Binance commits to discontinue cryptocurrency trading services in Ontario: Crypto Moves
RIYADH: Binance, the largest crypto exchange, has notified the Ontario Securities Commission it is committed to stopping the opening of new accounts for Ontario residents and terminating some services to comply with strict regulations.
In March 2021, the province demanded crypto-asset trading platforms make contact with the OSC to ensure the companies were complying with rules around security.
Binance reacted by withdrawing its services from Ontario in June last year, telling its users that they would need to close all active positions by December 31, 2021.
However, on December 29, Binance notified Ontario customers that it was allowed to proceed its operations there.
In new development, Binance has vowed to cease opening new Ontario accounts, stop trading in existing Ontario accounts, with exceptions to protect investors, and will wind down its businesses in certain products.
In a letter to the OSC, Binance acknowledged that: “Regardless of the representations made to OSC workers and buyers, Ontario buyers had been capable of proceed to commerce after the restrictions had been supposedly in place.”
