Binance's Woes Continue


Binance is feeling the regulatory walls closing in as authorities question the reputational damage of appearing to approve of the controversial digital asset exchange.

In the latest development, Binance’s US arm announced recently the delisting of Justin Sun linked TRON (TRX). Binance US cited that this was done after carrying out periodic reviews of its listings.

TRON’s delisting came in response to the charges of fraud and other securities law violations pressed by the US SEC against Justin Sun. The filed complaint mentioned the Tron Foundation Limited and BitTorrent Foundation linked to Justin Sun. This directly raises the question of whether is Binance.US offering SEC marked Securities. In addition, Binance influencers are now facing lawsuits believed to be over $1 billion for trading unregistered securities and Binance is being sued for paying influencers for their promotion. NBA star Jimmy Butler and Ben Armstrong have been included in the lawsuit, and more influencers will be called out in future filings.

The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) recently filed a lawsuit against Binance Holdings Limited, its CEO and founder Changpeng Zhao, and its COO Samuel Lim. The CFTC claims Binance, Zhao, and Lim skirted federal registration and regulatory requirements for the cryptocurrency exchange by offering unregistered crypto and helping US customers evade compliance control the company itself set. The CFTC takes less cases against crypto than the SEC but when they do they come in with force. The report refers to 300 “house accounts” owned by CZ, Merit Peak and Sigma chain used in proprietary trading, suggesting that Binance was counterfeiting its customers.

Two weeks ago, the Australian Securities & Investments Commission (ASIC) announced that it had cancelled the Australian financial services (AFS) licence held by Oztures Trading Pty Ltd trading as Binance Australia Derivatives.
