Binance announced that users in Singapore won’t be able to access certain services via the crypto exchange.
“With effect from 2021-10-26 04:00 AM UTC (12:00 PM UTC+8), users in Singapore will not be able to access certain functions on Binance.com including fiat deposit services, spot trading of cryptocurrencies, the purchase of cryptocurrencies through fiat channels and liquid swap (“Regulated Payments Services”).”
After regulatory scrutiny, Singapore joined the growing number of jurisdictions that restricted binance from offering exchanges services.
At the start of this month, The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) puts Binance on investor alert list. The MAS stated that the exchange was in violation of the country’s payment service law and operated without a license.
Binance responded by announcing that it would stop trading services in Singapore. The exchange will also take its trading app out of the Apple App Store and Google Play Store for Singaporean users.
