The biggest cryptocurrency exchange has announced coordinated efforts with law authorities to stop money laundering in an official announcement on the Binance blog.
The promotion in Hong Kong was launched by the exchange. They collaborated with the neighborhood police department to develop a focused crime prevention and warning message that included advice, illustrations of the most common scams, and contacts for additional information.
Users in Hong Kong who start a withdrawal on Binance receive this notification.
About 20.4% of users evaluated withdrawals during the first four weeks following the debut, or thought about whether there was a chance that the transaction might be fraudulent.
The community has provided the project with critical good input. With a minor but significant adjustment, the exchange has markedly improved safety without degrading user experience.
As it promotes its anti-fraud campaign moving ahead, the exchange stated that it is seeking to collaborate with law enforcement organizations in various locations.
The constructive step comes as US law enforcement officials are investigating Binance because they believe it to be a hub for criminal activity. Many of the tokens listed on the exchange, according to the charges, are unregistered securities.
Furthermore, between August 17 and early December 2022, Binance stole $1.8 billion from its users. Binance had $1.8 billion in deposits quietly transferred and used "as collateral to support customer stablecoins," leaving many of their users unprotected.
The conversation, however, soon revealed the information above to be false. The transactions are a routine component of their internal payment system and have no impact on how users' assets are used as collateral.
Consequently, one of the key steps in refuting FUD is the fact that Binance actively participates in anti-money laundering initiatives.
