Here’s what traders need to know about that news.

  • The big crypto news traders need to know about today is Binance getting “in principle” approval to operate in Abu Dhabi.
  • This comes from the city’s Financial Services Regulatory Authority and gives it the ability to act as a broker and dealer in digital assets.
  • Binance’s push into the Middle East comes after several other countries have given it the cold shoulder.
  • However, company CEO Changpeng Zhao says this isn’t the case.
  • He also mentions that there’s more for crypto traders to look out for in the future.
  • So what does this mean for Binance and its BNB (BNB-USD) crypto?
  • It’s possible we could see a rise in price for the crypto as more countries give approval to the exchange.
  • On the flip side of that, the already cold reception it’s received in some countries may continue to weigh the digital asset exchange down.

Richard Teng, head of Binance’s operations in the Middle East and North Africa, told Bloomberg the following about today’s crypto news.

“Binance has been actively engaging global regulators, such as ADGM, as part of its ongoing commitment to uphold global standards and collectively foster the developments and sustainable growth of the crypto ecosystem.”

BNB is down 3.8% over a 24-hour period as of Monday morning.
