Binance Responds to South African Regulator Warning

Apart from profit taking, the indecision in the Binance Coin market could be due to increased regulatory warnings and bans against the Binance exchange from around the world. The latest is the Financial Sector Conduct Authority (FSCA) warning in South Africa who alleged that Binance was not authorized to render financial services in the country.

Binance has responded to this warning saying that it is in compliance with local regulations and is not offering financial advice or intermediary services to South African residents. In a statement issued on Friday September 03, the exchange indicated that FSCA lack the authority to issue such as warning because it was not empowered to regulate “crypto-related investments” in the African country.

Binance also refuted the Agency’s claims that it used its South Africa Telegram group to offer crypto related services to South African residents clarifying that the online platform was used to promote blockchain education, and not to provide financial services or advice.

Binance also said that although Though the FSCA is an agency of the South African government, it was not the “major regulator.” This was the responsibility of the Financial Intelligence Centre (FIC) with the exchange had been working to make sure it complies with the local laws.

“ is registered with the FIC as a voluntary self-disclosure institution. Binance complies with the FIC Act obligations relating to establishing and verifying of clients’ identities, record keeping and reporting suspicious or unusual transactions.”

The warning from South Africa comes after several other regulators around the world issued warnings or banned Binance or its affiliates for not being authorised to provide financial services in those countries. These include Germany, Poland, the UK, Italy, Malaysia, Japan, Canada, Thailand, and Singapore among others.
