The number one crypto exchange by volume is making its U.S. debut next week.
Announced this afternoon, Binance.US will open registration and deposits on the platform September 18. Per a company blog posting, the launch initiates a rollout of multiple Binance products across the U.S.
After registration, 6 cryptocurrencies will be available for deposits including bitcoin, ethereum, XRP, bitcoin cash, litecoin, and tether.
Binance.US trading will commence later at an undisclosed date.
Based out of San Francisco, Binance.US was announced earlier this year. Residing officially in Malta, Binance has physical locations in Jersey, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Uganda.
Binance banned U.S. customers earlier this summer following regulatory uncertainty. A partnership with BAM Trading Services was announced just prior to the U.S. suspension.
Binance.US will not offer services in New York due to the ‘BitLicense’ regulatory requirement. As of August, Binance had not yet applied for the license.
Binance.US has not returned questions for comment at this time.
