With immediate effect, users from Australia will be restricted from opening new accounts for options, margin products, and leveraged tokens. This is an expansion of restriction since users from Australia were restricted from opening new futures accounts on 2021-07-08 (UTC).
Binance constantly evaluates its product and service offerings. Binance will be one of the first major cryptocurrency and digital assets exchanges to proactively restrict access to derivatives products to Australian users, in-line with our commitment to compliance and our plans to become a regulated financial institution.
Our aim is to create a sustainable ecosystem around blockchain technology and digital assets, and we hope that such efforts will help the industry grow in the local market in the long-run.
