Binance To Increase Presence In Poland In Compliance With Local Regulations

Binance has unveiled intentions to broaden its activities in Poland, another EU member state where the global cryptocurrency exchange is registered. The coin trading platform plans to develop its Polish entity, recruit local talent and launch educational initiatives.

Crypto Exchange Binance Moves Forward With Plans to Expand Operations in Poland

Binance, the world’s largest digital asset trading platform, is enhancing its presence in Poland, noting in an announcement that it maintains its commitment to comply with the country’s rules for virtual asset service providers (VASPs).

The expansion in 2023 will be facilitated by the development of the company’s local entity which adheres to the regulatory requirements. Polish customers will have to sign new Terms and Conditions with Binance Poland in order to continue using the platform’s services.

The subsidiary aims at full compliance with the Polish standards for VASPs and will adopt risk and anti-money laundering policies to match them, Binance’s Country Manager for Poland, Katarzyna Wabik, was quoted as saying in a blog post published Wednesday.

“Our current focus is the successful user migration to the Polish entity and the development of local operations. We’re also prioritizing local recruitment and talent scouting to help us strengthen our regional presence, organizing more events and delivering crypto education in Poland,” she detailed.

Binance is already looking to hire specialists for its Polish company. Vacancies are currently available within compliance, finance, and operations, the exchange pointed out.

The crypto industry needs effective regulation to help with mainstream adoption, according to Binance’s Head of Ukraine and Eastern Europe, Kyrylo Khomiakov. He elaborated that a stable regulatory environment is essential to establishing trust in the industry and long-term growth.

The regional executive added that Binance welcomes the regulatory initiatives of the government in Warsaw. He also remarked that the crypto exchange continues to improve its security systems and follows strict know-your-customer (KYC) requirements.

Poland is another EU member state where Binance has been granted registration or licensing, with the growing list now including France, Italy, Lithuania, Spain, and Cyprus. Its latest regulatory approval was issued by Sweden’s Financial Supervisory Authority earlier this month.

Unicef Receives $2.5 Million In Crypto For Ukraine From Binance Charity Foundation

Unicef Receives $2.5 Million In Crypto For Ukraine From Binance Charity Foundation

Binance Charity is donating $2.5 million worth of cryptocurrency to support the humanitarian efforts of Unicef in Ukraine. The announcement comes as the ongoing military clash with the invading Russian forces is putting more and more children at risk.

Unicef to Fund Activities in Ukraine With Donated Cryptocurrency

The Binance Charity Foundation has announced a donation of $2.5 million in cryptocurrency for the United Nations Children’s Fund (Unicef). The money will be used to finance the organization’s efforts in Ukraine amid escalating hostilities with Russia that threaten a growing number of children and their parents.

“Humanitarian needs are increasing by the hour,” Unicef said in a statement. “Many children are profoundly traumatized by the violence all around them. Hundreds of thousands of people are on the move, and family members have been separated from their loved ones,” the organization added.

Unicef noted that the crypto donation comes at a moment when the fund needs to scale up its activities in Ukraine and neighboring countries accepting refugees. The goal is to reach every child in need of protection and Ukraine has around 7.5 million children.

The organization is currently focusing on ensuring access to safe water and healthcare, including in areas close to the line of conflict. The Children’s Fund is working with local authorities to provide immediate help to families in need as well as child protection services and psychosocial care.

“We rely on the generosity and support of the global business community to help Unicef and our partners reach those children and their families whose lives and futures hang in the balance,” said Carla Hadid Mardini, Director of Unicef’s Private Fundraising and Partnerships Division in Geneva. She thanked Binance Charity for its support.

Binance, the world’s largest crypto exchange, announced last week a series of humanitarian activities and the donation of $10 million for the Ukrainian people. Binance Charity has been working with Unicef through its Luxembourg Committee.

Binance founder and CEO Changpeng Zhao commented that the rate at which the conflict in Ukraine is escalating has shocked the world. He also praised the collaboration between the Binance community and Unicef.

In 2019, Unicef launched a crypto fund, becoming the first U.N. organization to not only accept but also disperse cryptocurrency to support projects for children around the world. In 2020, it also provided crypto investment funding of startups.

Ukraine itself has been raising funds in various cryptocurrencies since Russia launched its military assault in February. Authorities in Kyiv and non-government organizations have used crypto donations to support defense efforts and address humanitarian needs.

You can support Ukrainian families, children, refugees, and displaced people by donating BTC, ETH, and BNB to Binance Charity’s Ukraine Emergency Relief Fund.
