Binance and Binance.US Propose Stipulation with US SEC to Limit Binance Global Access to Binance.US Wallets and Systems

Binance, the largest cryptocurrency exchange globally, and its subsidiary Binance.US have reached a proposed agreement with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The agreement is currently awaiting approval from a federal judge. This development signifies a significant step forward in resolving the regulatory issues between Binance and the SEC, highlighting ongoing efforts to address compliance concerns within the crypto industry.


Under the proposed agreement, access to customer funds on the US-based crypto exchange, Binance.US, would be limited exclusively to Binance.US employees. Officials from Binance Global would be prohibited from accessing private keys associated with all wallets, including cold and hot wallets, as well as other hardware wallets. Additionally, access to Binance.US’s internal systems and controls would be restricted for Binance Global officials. This agreement aims to enhance security measures and ensure greater separation between the two entities’ operations.

This agreement emphasizes tighter control over access and enhanced financial transparency between the parties involved.

Following a request from Judge Amy Berman Jackson, the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and Binance.US have opted to pursue an agreement instead of having the judge approve a restraining order to freeze assets of Binance’s US-based arm. Binance expressed concerns that such an asset freeze could lead to the termination of its US operations and deemed the restraining order unnecessary. This decision reflects a proactive approach to resolve the dispute between the parties while minimizing potential disruptions to Binance’s business in the United States.
