Binance Italy Recognition

The largest exchange was granted regulatory certification in Italy on Friday after registering as a Cryptocurrency Service Provider. The registration was achieved through the Organismo Agenti e Mediatori (OAM), in accordance with Italian cryptocurrency laws.

The regulatory approval, according to the exchange, is a significant step forward in the company’s Italian growth strategy.

According to the statement, the company will be able to strengthen its footprint in the country by creating offices and expanding its local personnel.
