Binance Removes Support for Singapore Dollar Pairs and Payments Amid Crackdown

Binance has removed some offerings in Singapore due to regulatory scrutiny.

Binance, the number one exchange by reported trading volumes, will discontinue support for trading pairs in the Singapore dollar (SGD) on Sept. 10.

In addition, it will remove SGD payment options from the website.   

The company will also delete its application from Google Play and App Store in Singapore.

Earlier this week, the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) ordered the crypto giant to stop providing payment services due to possibly violating local laws.

 It remains to be seen whether the company’s removal of some services in the country will be enough to satisfy the regulator.

In late August, Norwegian krone trading was discontinued by Binance. The exchange also removed the Norwegian language option from its website.

Binance found itself in troubled waters earlier this year, with regulators around the world zeroing in on the top exchange. The regulatory pressure forced the leading crypto company to adopt a proactive approach to compliance.
