Leading Exchange Binance has recently received ISO27001 accreditation and has also been certified by Det Norske Veritas(DNV) and United Kingdom Accreditation Service(UKAS), two world-renowned international accreditation bodies.
First DNV and UKAS Certified Crypto Exchange
Per a recent tweet, by Binance’s official Twitter handle, Binance is now among the first global crypto-asset platforms to receive ISO27001 accreditation. Furthermore, it is the first crypto platform to be certified by DNV & UKAS.
DNV is the world’s largest accredited registrar and classification society and UKAS is the sole national accreditation body recognized by the British government. ISO27001 certification provides enhanced information security management, which is good for traders and crypto-asset holders on the platform as it guarantees the safekeeping of their data.
From The CEO’s Desk
In an official statement, Binance CEO CZ said,
Security has always been the utmost priority for Binance and our users, and we are honored that Binance’s security management is recognized by the respected DNV and UKAS. We appreciate the great amount of trust that our users have placed in us. We are committed to continuously securing our users’ information and assets by further strengthening our security system.
Rigorous Auditing Procedures
To achieve the certification, Binance has passed an examination of 114 criteria across 14 categories. These categories include asset management, operation security, security policy, information systems acquisition, development, and maintenance.
Earlier this year, Crypto.com became the first crypto platform to receive an ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification and PCI: DSS Level 1 Compliance. The certifications were granted after rigorous third-party security audits. International certification agency Bureau Veritas led the audit and covered multiple departments, functions, and products such as Crypto.com’s Wallet & Card App.

Binance in a recent update announced that it has added margin for MATIC. The coin can be paired with Bitcoin(BTC) and Tether(USDT).
Binance Hints At Tezos Staking
Yesterday, Binance announced the listing of Tezos with pairs of Bitcoin(BTC), Tether(USDT) and Binance Coin(BNB). When questioned about the exchange’s intention to allow Tezos staking, CZ responded with a “happy” emoji. Following the announcement, the price of TEZOS jumped up by 4%. Also, Binance, in another update announced its sixth phase of lending products. The launch is slated for the 25th of September.

This further implies that it might significantly affect crypto prices as well. What will be Binance’s next move? Let us know, what you think?
