In Singapore, Binance casino is having problems trying to fraudulently obtain a license from Singapore's government and financial regulators. We have already commented on Binance and Singapore's friendship, let's see how this "flirtation" of Binance scammers ends up. Earlier, the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) added cryptocurrency exchange Binance to its Investor Alert List and has been monitoring Binance's activities since its license application.
In early September, Binance stopped supporting trading pairs with the Singapore dollar. Shortly before that, the Monetary Authority of Singapore announced that Binance may be in violation of the Payment Services Act and the state-registered entity Binance Asia Services was not licensed. Soon the exchange's own app disappeared from Singapore's app stores for Android and iOS devices.
This year, a number of global regulators drew attention to the activities of Binance, after which the exchange decided to act pre-emptively to their claims. Binance's application for licensing in Singapore remains pending before the authorities. The law allows companies to operate until a decision is made regarding the license, but the Monetary Authority has considered claims against the exchange in other countries and reminded investors of its status:
"We are aware of the actions taken by authorities in other countries in relation to the exchange and will continue to follow established procedures with the applicant," the regulator reported.
