Following registration by the Swedish Authority Binance is now authorised in seven EU Member States and fifteen jurisdictions worldwide.
January 11, 2023 - Binance announced that Binance Nordics AB has been granted registration as a financial institution for management and trading in virtual currency by the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority (Swedish FSA). Binance Nordics AB now holds registration number 66822.
The registration effectively means that Swedish residents will now be able to access Binance's broad range of crypto and Web3 services, including euro deposits and withdrawals, crypto buying with euro, trading, staking and the Binance Visa Card. A full list of services is provided at the bottom of this article.
Sweden becomes the seventh EU Member State in which Binance has been granted authorisation, following authorisations in: France, Italy, Lithuania, Spain, Cyprus and Poland.
Richard Teng, Head of Europe and MENA at Binance, commented: "Binance continues to demonstrate its commitment to work closely with regulatory agencies to uphold global standards. Our registration in Sweden is the result of many months of diligent, hard work from our team, underpinning our commitment to the Swedish market and our users. We are deeply grateful for the support from the Swedish Financial Services Authority throughout the application process and for the approval. Sweden is now amongst the growing list of global jurisdictions that have granted regulatory approval to Binance."
Roy van Krimpen, Nordics and Benelux Lead, added: "Sweden fully adopts EU laws and has further local requirements, so we have been careful to ensure that Binance Nordics AB has adopted risk and AML policies to match this exacting standard. Our next big task will be the successful migration and launch of local operations, including hiring of local talent, organizing more events and delivering more crypto education in Sweden."
