Binance, a Singapore-based cryptocurrency exchange unit, has applied for a license under the new Payment Services Act, which entered into force on January 28.

We have already applied. We submitted the application pretty fast. Binance’s Singapore entity has been in close touch with the local regulators, and they have always been open-minded.

Founder and CEO, Binance

Under the new law, crypto companies in Singapore must register with the Monetary Authority and receive one of three licenses: an exchange of money, a standard or large payment institution. The measure is aimed at regulating payments and crypto trading using requirements for participants in the traditional finance industry. Zhao did not specify which of the licenses Binance Singapore chose.

Binance has been offering crypto-fiat trading services in Singapore since April 2019 and works with eight coins, including Bitcoin, Ethereum and XRP. The trading platform is supported by Vertex Venture Holdings, a venture division of Singapore's Temasek Holdings.
