Banking and Brokerage Illegal Binance ServicesWhen we received the complaint from Binance (or rather, the domain registrar received it and forwarded it to us) we checked the trademarks of Binance with EU registration. We basically already wrote that the trademarks of Binance exchange belong to Binance Holdings Limited in the article News from hell: Binance is trying to shut down Scambinance.com and For investigation and inquiries: Malta, Guangying Chen (Heina Chen) and Alexandre Dreyfus:
For information: Binance Holdings Limited trademarks:
If you look at the official website of the European Union under EU Binance (please note - the rights holder company Binance Holdings Limited) has 4 registered trademarks in the EU:
The most interesting thing is hidden in the classes for obtaining trademarks. Classes 35 and 36, their description is as follows:
Administration of consumer loyalty programs; auctioneering; book-keeping / accounting; business information; business intermediary services relating to the matching of potential private investors with entrepreneurs needing funding; business management and organization consultancy; business research; commercial information and advice for consumers in the choice of products and services; competitive intelligence services; drawing up of statements of accounts; market intelligence services; negotiation and conclusion of commercial transactions for third parties; opinion polling; organization of exhibitions for commercial or advertising purposes; organization of trade fairs for commercial or advertising purposes; providing business information via a web site; provision of an on-line marketplace for buyers and sellers of goods and services; public relations; tax preparation.
Banking; brokerage; capital investment; clearing, financial / clearing-houses, financial; deposits of valuables; electronic funds transfer; exchanging money; financial analysis; financial consultancy; financial information; financing services; issuance of tokens of value; online banking; processing of credit card payments; processing of debit card payments; providing financial information via a web site; providing rebates at participating establishments of others through use of a membership card; safe deposit services; securities brokerage; stock brokerage services; stock exchange quotations.
As we wrote earlier in the piece Illegal Banking and Forex Activities of Binance - our Binance casino purposefully and intentionally offers its customers illegal services - banking and forex (brokerage) services, illegal transactions with unregistered securities (token BNB, XRP). Class 36 in Binance's trademarks clearly shows this (trademark registration was made back in 2018):
- Financial services
- Depositsof securities
- Electronic funds transfer
- Money Exchange
- Online banking
- Issuing securities (tokens)
- Brokerage services on securities
- Brokerage serviceson shares
All of these activities in сlass 36 are licensed activities (each separately and all together) in every country in the world. Providing such services without a license is a criminal offence in any country of the world. With its trademark and the class chosen for it, Binance has only confirmed its criminal intentions (back in 2018) and is now implementing them in the form of services on its Binance.com platform, which we are trying to convey to "financial partners", regulators and law enforcement agencies and international organizations.
