Binance plans to restrict the use of unregulated stablecoins in the EU

Binance, the leading crypto exchange, has notified its clients about forthcoming restrictions due to the introduction of new regulations governing stablecoins in the European Economic Area (EEA). The exchange’s official statement specifies that these restrictions will primarily impact unregulated stablecoins.

The company plans to implement these changes gradually, allowing customers the opportunity to convert to regulated stablecoins, other digital assets like Bitcoin and Ether, or fiat currency seamlessly. However, it hasn’t provided details on which specific coins fall under the regulated category.

Binance emphasised that this move will be the beginning of a new regulatory framework and will have a significant impact on the stablecoin market within the EEA.

Furthermore, Binance will impose restrictions on its offerings, preventing EU users from accessing new products or services associated with unregulated stablecoins.

Binance said that from June 30, EU users will not be able to trade, deposit, or withdraw stablecoins that do not follow MiCA guidelines.

This update aligns with the upcoming implementation of the European MiCA (Markets in Crypto-Assets) legislation, which will also impact stablecoins. Under these new regulations, operators must obtain a licence from an EU member state and keep up stringent requirements aimed at ensuring the stability of their coins. Among these requirements are full disclosure of information to customers, maintaining sufficient financial reserves, presenting detailed business models, and establishing mechanisms for buyouts.

MiCA is expected to be fully enforced by the end of 2024, with regulations concerning stablecoins beginning to take effect as early as this month.
