According to the CEO of Binance, the exchange wants to open a division to comply with the requirements in the field of combating money laundering and terrorist financing.
According to Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao, they plan to obtain a license from the UK regulator in 6-18 months. At the same time, the okmpaniya undertakes to assist the government in the fight against terrorism and money laundering.
Zhao stressed that meeting the requirements of the regulator has become a priority for the company. For this, many changes have been made to the work and processes of the company. To do this, Binance is assembling a team of employees from regulators from various countries, including Britain.

Despite this, analysts note that there are still large players on the market, which makes us understand that it is far from over.
