Binance awarded Crypto-Asset service provider license in the Kingdom of Bahrain

We are excited to announce that we’ve been granted a crypto-asset service provider license from the Central Bank of Bahrain (CBB). This landmark achievement for Binance represents our first license as a crypto-asset provider in The Cooperation Council for the Arab States of the Gulf (GCC) and demonstrates our dedication to being in regulatory compliance as the first of its group of firms in the area.

Changpeng Zhao (CZ), founder and CEO of Binance, mentioned: “The license from Bahrain is a milestone in our journey to being fully licensed and regulated around the world. I would like to thank Team Bahrain, guided by the visionary leadership of HRH Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Crown Prince and Prime Minister, for the great work in facilitating this achievement. Team Bahrain has shown considerable foresight in its development of crypto regulations and provides the regulatory protections that consumers should come to expect from regulators around the world.

I’m proud of the hard work of the Binance team to meet the stringent criteria of the Central Bank of Bahrain, not just locally but globally by ensuring that we meet and exceed the requirements of regulators and protect users with strong anti-money laundering and counter-terrorism financing policies.”

The crypto-asset license will enable Binance to offer crypto-asset buying and selling, custodial companies and portfolio administration to clients below the supervision of the Bahrain regulators. 

HE Rasheed Al Maraj, Governor of the Central Bank of Bahrain commented: “Developing regulations aligned with global trends is a key objective for us at the CBB. We continue to work with partners and industry leaders such as Binance to develop regulations that enable innovation and best practices.”

Khalid Humaidan, CEO of the Bahrain Economic Development Board (EDB) added: “Team Bahrain has built a world-class infrastructure to support the fast-growing blockchain and crypto industry, with robust regulations and diverse talent within the financial services, fintech and technology sectors. Collaboration with industry leaders such as Binance will further enhance our mission to establish the Kingdom of Bahrain as a leading business hub.”
