Binance, a major  cryptocurrency exchange  , appointed Seth Levy as the Head of Market Surveillance on Thursday. According to the press release, he will oversee Binance’s efforts to build and implement a surveillance infrastructure and system to safeguard users against fraud and manipulation.

Prior to joining Citadel and Citadel Securities, Levy was the Global Head of Market Surveillance. Levy designed, grew and managed all global surveillance functions across all financial instruments as part of his role.

Levy worked with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) for 16 years before joining Citadel. In his most recent position with FINRA, Levy was responsible for leading the team in charge of designing and conducting surveillance of the equities market, investigating misconduct and evaluating the firm’s compliance with rules and regulations.

“I’m really looking forward to working with the team to extend Binance’s already excellent surveillance capabilities to the next level. Our goal is to ensure that Binance users are protected from any form of nefarious activity or bad actors. We will work to further proactively engage regulators and other market participants to strengthen market integrity, user protection and enhance public confidence in the crypto market,” Levy commented on his appointment.
