Binance DEX Bans 28 Countries

Users on Binance’s decentralized exchange were surprised to discover a pop-up when visiting the platform today. Starting on July 1, users with certain IP addresses would be blocked from using the exchange’s wallet. The message gives no explanation other than that for these countries, Binance DEX will ‘no longer be available.’ Binance DEX The following countries can expect their IP addresses to be prohibited from using Binance DEX:
  • USA
  • Albania
  • Belarus
  • Bosnia
  • Burma
  • Central African Republic
  • Democratic Republic of Congo
  • Democratic People’s Republic of Korea
  • Cote D’Ivoire
  • Crimea
  • Croatia
  • Cuba
  • Herzegovina
  • Iran
  • Iraq
  • Kosovo
  • Lebanon
  • Liberia
  • Libya
  • Macedonia
  • Moldova
  • Serbia
  • Somalia
  • South Sudan
  • Syria
  • Venezuela
  • Yemen
  • Zimbabwe
The IP ban for these countries will go into effect on the first of July, 2019 (UTC 00:00) according to the message. Binance

Legal Troubles?

It’s unclear what the legal situation is regarding this IP ban. Most notable of the countries listed is the United States. This is significant because such a large part of Binance’s user base reside in the US. As of now, the pop-up only appears on the Binance DEX landing page and not on the primary Binance exchange page. Because the pop-up is still shrouded in mystery, we can likely expect an official statement from Binance on this notice in the coming days. In 2018, Binance moved its headquarters to Malta after stricter regulations were put in place in both Japan and China. They also have a branch in Jersey called Binance Jersey which offers fiat-to-cryptocurrency pairs including the Euro and British Pound. Will Binance’s primary exchange soon also ban IP addresses from these countries? Let us know your thoughts in the comment below.
