Binance regulatory scrutiny
The listing follows wide-scale global scrutiny on Binance with claims the exchange is running scams and the possibility of aiding money laundering. Therefore, the listing points to Binance trusting the projects and the tokens have possibly proven themselves to be reliable.
Earlier, Binance announced it had stopped selling digital tokens related to shares. The shares refer to digital versions of equities pegged to the value of the specific share. Such tokens are usually traded in fractional units.
Furthermore, Binance has revealed plans to open regional headquarters globally to handle the regulatory concerns with building global pressure. According to CEO Changpeng Zhao, the exchange is looking for licensing everywhere.
