Binance verification issue persists

Earlier this month, the Philippine Securities and Exchange Commission, the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC), which governs ISPs in the country, suspended Binance for blocking the exchange.

Philippines The SEC’s ban on Binance is not unique as the exchange has faced regulatory scrutiny around the world.

Last year, the Commodity Exchange Commission (CFTC) filed criminal charges against Binance for allegedly operating an illegal asset exchange and violating government regulations.

Similarly, the US Securities and Exchange Commission charged Binance Holdings LTD and former CEO Changpeng Zhao (CZ) with allegations of illegal trading, exchanges, clearinghouses, and issuance and sale of securities.

Binance and CZ pleaded guilty to multiple federal charges on November 21, 2023, including money laundering and unauthorized funds transfers.

CZ later resigned as CEO of Binance as part of his agreement with the DOJ.
