Can I Get a Binance Account in the US?

As of September 2019, Binance is not available to US customers. The popular cryptocurrency exchange can’t legally operate in the US because it’s not registered with the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN).

Binance has been trying to get a US license since 2018, but so far has been unsuccessful.

NOTE: This is a warning note regarding the question “Can I get a Binance account in the US?”.

Binance is an international cryptocurrency exchange that is not authorized to operate in the United States. Therefore, it is illegal for US citizens to use Binance services. Any individual found using Binance services could face legal action and fines.

It is also important to note that individuals may be at risk of losing their funds if they open an unauthorized Binance account as there may be no recourse or protection if something goes wrong. For this reason, we strongly advise against opening any kind of Binance account in the United States.

So if you’re a US citizen or resident, you can’t currently use Binance. However, that could change in the future if Binance gets a US license or if the US changes its lAWS around cryptocurrency exchanges.

In the meantime, there are still plenty of other great cryptocurrency exchanges available to US customers. Coinbase, for example, is one of the most popular exchanges and is available in all 50 states.
