Binance announced Friday that Binance Italy “has received regulatory approval” through registration as a Cryptocurrency Service Provider with the Organismo Agenti e Mediatori (OAM), as required by the Italian legislation on crypto assets.

The announcement states:

The registration of Binance Italy … allows the company to offer crypto products to its customers in Italy.

Binance Italy, established in recent months, is the legal entity of the Binance Group in Italy.

Earlier this month, Binance said it has received approval from the French financial regulator, the Autorité des marchés financiers (AMF), to operate as a registered Digital Asset Service Provider (DASP). The crypto exchange also recently received licenses in Bahrain and Dubai.

Changpeng Zhao (CZ), co-founder and CEO of Binance, commented:
