Binance Faces Troubles In Thailand After US DOJ $4.3 Billion Settlement – Crypto News



The world’s largest crypto exchange Binance faces new trouble in Thailand as it aims to venture with Sarath Ratanavadi’s Gulf Energy Development to launch operations in the country. Binance’s $4.3 billion settlement with the US authorities and Changpeng ‘CZ’ Zhao stepped down as CEO for anti-money laundering and sanctions violations have impacted its plan.

Binance’s Thailand Launch Faces Regulatory Review

Binance Holdings’ attempt to launch a crypto exchange in Thailand in a joint venture with Sarath Ratanavadi’s Gulf Energy Development faces regulatory challenges, reported Bloomberg. It follows Binance and CEO Changpeng Zhao’s guilty plea and $4.3 billion in penalties for anti-money laundering (AML) law and sanctions violations.

The domestic Binance crypto exchange launch is under review after the recent events and regulator-turned-crypto executive Richard Teng becoming Binance’s new chief executive officer (CEO). Some indicated a likely delay in the scheduled launch next year.

“Binance grew extremely fast and so probably crossed paths with some regulations. We have much more confidence in its credibility after this storm, which should make it a lot stronger, said Thai billionaire Sarath Ratanavadi.

The crypto exchange and CZ weren’t charged with crimes such as fraud or the misuse of customer money. Sarath Ratanavadi has high confidence in the crypto company’s product offering, systems, and security.
