Binance, the world’s leading cryptocurrency exchange, has been granted a regulatory green light in Sweden. This is the seventh EU nation where the platform has received such a license, with the previous six being Italy, France, Spain, Poland, Cyprus, and Lithuania.

The green light was granted by the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority, which registered the exchange as a financial institution for management and trading in virtual currency in the Scandinavian country. Binance announced that its Swedish subsidiary – Binance Nordics AB – obtained registration from the country’s financial watchdogs after „months of constructive engagement.“

The authorization enables local consumers to access its products and services, such as buying cryptocurrencies with euro, selling digital assets, and exchanging digital assets with one another. As a result, Binance users in Sweden can now access a range of digital assets, including Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple, and Litecoin, in addition to other altcoins.

Binance’s CEO and founder, Changpeng Zhao, commented on the regulatory approval, saying “We are excited to be expanding our services to the Swedish market. This is an important milestone for Binance, as well as for the entire blockchain industry. It is a testament to the importance of compliance, and the trust that governments have placed in Binance.”

The regulatory approval in Sweden is the latest in a series of successes for Binance, which recently opened its first cryptocurrency-dedicated bank in Malta. The exchange also recently announced the launch of its own decentralized exchange, Binance DEX, which is expected to be released in the near future.

Binance’s regulatory approval in Sweden is part of a larger trend of increased regulatory scrutiny of cryptocurrency exchanges by governments around the world. While there are still some nations that are wary of digital assets, the majority of countries now recognize the potential of blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies, and are actively seeking to regulate them.

As governments continue to recognize the potential of cryptocurrency, Binance is well-positioned to be at the forefront of the industry. With its newly-granted regulatory approval in Sweden, the exchange is on track to expand its services to even more nations in the near future.
