Binance Expands Global KYC Requirements to Further User Protection

August 20, 2021 GMT

SINGAPORE, Aug. 20, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Binance, the world’s leading blockchain ecosystem and cryptocurrency infrastructure provider, has today announced the global rollout of its Intermediate Verification requirement for all users.

Intermediate Verification supports Binance’s Know Your Customer (KYC) and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) efforts as part of the organization’s redoubling of efforts to further enhance user protection and risk management protocols.

Changpeng Zhao (CZ), Founder and CEO of Binance, said: “User protection is an integral part of our DNA and core values. Our vision is to create a sustainable ecosystem that is safe for all participants. In the last four years we have laid the groundwork by investing heavily in security and user protection, supporting law enforcement from around the world with high-profile investigations and helping cybercrime victims recover millions of dollars worth of stolen funds.”
