Binance derivatives trading is also causing trouble around the world

Issues surrounding derivatives trading have plagued Binance for some time. In 2021, several regulators regulated the services of crypto exchanges, including the UK’s FCA, Japan’s FSA, and Ontario’s Securities and Exchange Commission (OSC).

However, licenses for crypto trading were obtained last year in France, Italy, Spain, Lithuania, Sweden, Poland and Cyprus. In Germany, Binance is still awaiting approval.
