Binance has been making headlines since its initial regulatory hiccup. One of the most important things they are doing is prohibiting futures and derivative trading. On Friday, the crypto exchange business alerted all Hong Kong users that they will cease trading in crypto derivatives. Users will be unable to open new derivatives product accounts, and existing users will have 90 days to cancel their existing positions. This means that any user should pay out their investment before the deadline to prevent significant losses.
The crypto exchange behemoth has been attempting to take a highly controlled approach in order to comply with each country’s laws. The recent suspension of derivative trading in Hong Kong demonstrates its willingness to work with financial regulators, as it has already done in countries such as the Netherlands, Italy, and Germany. Despite the implementation of prohibitions in various countries, Binance remains one of the top derivatives platforms. According to reports, the Binance platform has a daily trade volume of around $70-$100 billion.
The derivatives sector is massive and has a considerable impact on the market. Because of its highly deceptive character, it has raised a slew of moderation and regulation concerns. Binance’s derivatives restriction may potentially be a positive thing for the company, which aims to limit trading leverages for regulatory reasons. This is “in keeping with our commitment to compliance,” according to Binance. If this trend continues, the derivatives business may suffer as laws in each country tighten.
These regulatory moves have also had an impact on the price of Binance Coin, with the altcoin seeing considerable corrections in recent months. BNB, on the other hand, opened at $342 on Sunday. Nonetheless, it is worth noting that Binance has recently demonstrated some flexibility in its efforts to adapt and comply with the regulatory requirements of financial regulators in various nations.
