In response to rumors that the company’s offices were raided on July 4, Australian Binance is collaborating with local officials to satisfy compliance obligations. A representative for Australia told the media that their intention to cooperate with local officers and Binance was to focus on interacting with local standards of regulation to serve their Australian users in a compliant manner.
This Tuesday, according to Bloomberg, the ASIC searched Binance Australia sites. According to the article, which relies on unnamed persons with knowledge of the situation, the examination was a component of a larger inquiry into Binance’s now-defunct derivatives of the Australian company.

If their offices underwent a search or if the business was aware of this local investigation, a representative of the company did not deny nor confirm either to the media. The announcement follows the ASIC’s cancellation of BAS’ license in April this year by a couple of months. The action was taken after a focused examination of their activities in the nation, specifically the division of clients into wholesale and retail users of the site. Binance decided to stop trading in derivatives in Australia as a result, deciding to take a “focused approach” there. In Australia, they still provide spot exchange services.
The company was previously the subject of a probe by Australian regulators after the business unexpectedly canceled several derivatives placed this February. The business allegedly claimed that it was barring consumers who didn’t match the standards to be wholesale clients, citing investor categorization compliance. French authorities visited their offices there last month. Officials in France are looking into allegations of money laundering and the allegedly unlawful offering of digital asset services. According to the company, it complies with all rules in France and all markets where its business is conducted.
