Almost six weeks after Binance obtained regulatory approval from Italian authorities, the crypto services provider announced today that it has secured the Virtual Asset Services Provider (VASP) registration from the Bank of Spain.

The details shared by Binance show that Moon Tech Spain, the Spanish subsidiary of Binance, applied for the registration on 28 January 2022 and secured the registration on 7 July 2022. In the past few months, Binance received registrations from regulatory authorities across different countries within Europe, including France and Italy.

Through the latest registration in Spain, Binance aims to increase its presence in the European region. The Bank of Spain verifies the compliance of local entities and their directors under its jurisdiction.

“Effective regulation is essential for the widespread adoption of cryptocurrencies. We have invested significantly in compliance and introduced AMLD 5 and 6 compliant tools and policies to ensure that our platform remains the safest and most trustworthy in the industry. Moon Tech’s registration in Spain is an acknowledgement of the hard work and commitment of our teams to providing a platform that places user protection above all else,” Changpeng Zhao, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Binance, commented.

In May 2022, Binance Bahrain received a full category 4 license from the Central Bank of Bahrain (CBB). The license has allowed the company to offer a full suite of crypto exchange services in Bahrain.
