Binance, the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange by business scale, continues global expansion by opening two offices in Brazil. Brazil is the largest country in Latin America now open to Binance operations. The company has opened two new offices in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. The two units are evidence of Binance’s commitment to operating in local markets.
Binance and Brazil
During his visit to the country in March 2022, Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao gave hints of expansion in Brazil. Judging from the suggestions, the exchange will have over 150 employees, which is twice the number of employees in 2022. The individuals will be able to work in customer service and support. Brazil is the largest market for crypto in Latin America. A recent report shows Brazil’s crypto adoption grew by 68% within a month.
CZ, CEO of Binance, said that the exchange has been eyeing the market for a long. A market with such growth is every investor’s dream. Even Kucoin published a report in April saying that over 34 million Brazilians are actively invested in cryptocurrency.
Binance has been building offices globally. The company has scaled so much in 2022. It plans to create a regional center and expand the facility in Kazakhstan.
The company even allows customers to top up their cards using the Binance Card App, which converts their crypto holdings into fiat in seconds. It can be used by over 90 million Mastercard merchants worldwide. The card is not directly connected to the customer account of the platform.
Binance suggests it fully complies with the Brazilian regulatory environment and supports crypto regulation. Binance has opened offices in local markets around the world. It also announced opening a new office in New Zealand on 29 September 29. The company is registered with national regulators in countries such as France, Italy, and Spain.
Brazil is yet to adopt cryptocurrency regulation. The country is still waiting for the long-awaited bill placed in the country’s lower house of parliament to pass.
Setting up two offices in Brazil is a strategic move for Binance. This will help expand its services in Brazil. The company was subject to regulatory scrutiny in Brazil earlier on. This happened after the Brazilian Securities and Exchange Commission (CVM) announced it was not registered on the Brazilian securities market. The procedures triggered the trading suspension.
The announcement is a step for Binance to help develop the crypto and blockchain industry. This comes amidst a debate in the House of Commons on the cryptocurrency regulatory framework. The exchange operates in full compliance with the Brazilian regulatory environment. The regulation is the only way for the digital asset industry to grow. This allows the general public to enable more people to interact with cryptocurrencies. Now you can enjoy the benefits of blockchain.
Binance and Crypto Regulation
Binance is a leading exchange for obtaining crypto-specific licenses. It has received licenses in France, Spain, Italy, Dubai, Bahrain, Abu Dhabi, New Zealand, and any other exchange. Binance maintains a constant dialogue with authorities in countries with similar orientations. This demonstrates the company’s total commitment to regulatory development in this area.
