Binance is banking on pro-crypto regulators to expand its operations globally after years of arguing that the company doesn’t have any headquarters. Not every country has been as accommodating as in 2021, Japanese, Italian, British, Dutch, and Italian regulators all issued some form of a consumer warning about Binance or took steps to limit the exchange services in their countries. Binance has been on the hunt for an accomodating host and last month, the exchange recieved a crypto-asset service provider license from the Central Bank of Bahrain and it announced that it gained regulatory approval to operate in Abu Dhabi.
Binance’s opening in Station F is a part of the Objective Moon which is a $100 million Web3 and crypto investment initiative in France that the exchange announced a year ago. The initiative aims to develop a Binance Research and development hub in France to recruit blockchain experts in the country and the continent. The Binance founder praised France’s regulatory approach while developing an online education program for French learners. This program will be created in partnership with online vocational learning platform OpenClassroom which is an NFT enterprenrual association and crypto wallet maker Ledger.
The initiative mentioned the Objective Moon Accelerator will connect companies using DLT and will create a blockchain ecosystem in France and the EU which is crucial in developing security as the blockcahin technology evolves.
