Binance CEO Denies “November” Rumor on Binance U.S. Launch

Numerous media outlets chose to draw a timeline and took the safe side. Since, its already mid-August and he said, “a month or two”, reports around its launch in ‘November’ started spreading like a virus.

Nevertheless, outlets can’t be blamed for the situation as well. Binance U.S. twitter account and Catherine Coley from Binance U.S. re-tweeted Cheddar’s report which iterated the same fact.

However, CZ has chastened the crypto media websites for creating news for a November launch. He said,

I never said November… Gotta love how interpretations (or misinterpretations) become “news”.

Moreover, while we haven’t received any further details from him or Catherine on the tentative dates. The flow of things suggests that the launch might be much sooner than November.

The U.S. has put stringent regulation for the operation of Exchanges. While things were unclear in the past, CZ stated that it has improved a lot. He also added,

“We want to be fully compliant. Before we didn’t feel we had the experience to do that but now we have our partners so we want to take this opportunity to explore the market.”

Binance U.S. is expected to add 30 cryptocurrencies, while Binance’s international division currently lists about 150 coins. Trading will be limited to the entire of US, expect New York for now. Binance is yet to procure the BitLicense from NYDFS.
