Binance Secures Full Operational License in Dubai Amidst Global Expansion

In a significant move expected to accelerate the adoption of digital assets, global cryptocurrency exchange Binance has been granted a full operational license to operate in Dubai. This milestone, marked by the issuance of a Virtual Asset Service Provider (VASP) license by the Virtual Assets Regulatory Authority, underscores the growing reliability of the UAE’s regulatory landscape and Binance’s commitment to expanding its services.

With this license, Binance plans to broaden its offerings beyond spot trading and fiat services, aiming to cater to retail investors and extend its footprint in the region. CEO Richard Teng highlighted the strategic importance of this development, emphasizing Binance’s trajectory towards surpassing the 200 million user mark in the near future, solidifying its position as the world’s largest crypto exchange by user base.

The decision to grant Binance a VASP license follows the company’s previous operational license in July 2023, which allowed it to provide exchange and broker-dealer services in Dubai. Richard Teng, CEO of Binance, expressed optimism about the future of digital assets, foreseeing accelerated adoption over the next five years fueled by regulatory clarity and institutional interest. He underscored the UAE’s progressive stance on digital assets, citing recent initiatives to regulate virtual assets and foster responsible business growth.


Indeed, the UAE’s regulatory framework has positioned it as a frontrunner in the global crypto landscape, attracting stable investments and fostering innovation. As Binance expands its presence in Dubai, it remains poised to play a pivotal role in shaping the region’s burgeoning crypto ecosystem and driving the adoption of digital assets on a global scale.
