What does the CEO say? CBB has become the first regulator in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. Changpeng Zhao, the exchange’s founder and CEO, said:

“Recognition and approval from national regulators, such as the Central Bank of Bahrain, is essential to build trust in crypto and blockchain and help further improve mass adoption. The approval recognizes Binance’s commitment to comply fully with regulatory requirements and our broader commitment to anchor operations and activities in Bahrain.”

This Binance subsidiary will facilitate the provision of the services related to digital assets, money transfers, and foreign currencies and act as a money services business (MSB).
