Binance, the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange by trading volume, is not currently available to users in the United States. The company has been steadily expanding its reach over the past few years, but its US operations have been limited to a single platform: Binance US.
Binance US is a separate entity from the main Binance exchange, with its own management team and compliance officers. The US platform only offers trading in a limited selection of cryptocurrencies, and it does not support margin trading or crypto-to-fiat pairs.
The main reason why Binance is not available in the US is due to regulatory reasons. The US has stricter lAWS and regulations surrounding cryptocurrency than most other countries.
Binance would need to obtain a license from the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in order to operate legally in the country.
So far, Binance has not made any moves to obtain a US license. This is likely because the company’s focus is on other markets where it can operate more freely.
For now, US users will need to stick with Binance US if they want to trade on the Binance platform.
