Binance resumes its services in Belgium
Binance announced on Monday, September 25, that it had reopened customer registrations in Belgium.
Binance had halted operations in the country in August, directing customers to a Polish entity.
Binance, the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange by trading volume, has announced that new customer registration and access to products and services is now reopened in Belgium.
The announcement comes nearly a month since the exchange notified its customers that access to Belgian customers would be available via Binance Poland. That move followed an order from the Belgium market regulator warning Binance not to offer its services in the country.
Great news for our Belgian community 🇧🇪
We’ve now reopened registrations and access to #Binance products and services in Belgium. https://t.co/IActiqYMjm

As CoinJournal reported in late August, Binance had said the decision to provide its services via the Polish entity would help it work on its regulatory compliance process in Belgium.
Binance has over the past few months had to exit a few markets, including Canada, over regulatory issues and is battling a lawsuit filed by the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). In August, the company ended support for its crypto cards in Latin America and the Middle East after its partner Mastercard reportedly ended their collaboration.
