THE HISTORY OF BINANCE IN LITHUANIA
Binance Group’s decision to open a company in Lithuania followed a warning that Binance was released in 2021 by the Bank of Lithuania. This institution regulates all financial service providers operating in the country and ensures full compliance with the relevant provisions and Lithuanian legislation. According to the Bank of Lithuania, the warning was issued due to a possible violation of these requirements. The main problem that triggered the warning was alternative services, especially related to cryptographic derivatives (such as options, futures, and securities).
After the warning, the Bank of Lithuania called on Binance to seek an appropriate permit and licensing status in accordance with Lithuanian law. The creation of Bifinity UAB is a clear step in this direction, placing Binance Group services in Lithuania under the direct control of the Bank of Lithuania.
