In the prohibition of use section of the agreement, Binance clearly states that “Binance is unable to provide services to any U.S. person. Binance maintains the right to select its markets and jurisdictions to operate and may restrict or deny the Services in certain countries at its discretion.”
Pains and Gains
While many users will be put off by the changes, there are still ways of circumventing the prohibition. For example, Americans might choose to switch on VPN and continue using the service. However, they should take into account that there is a withdrawal cap. A non-verified user can only withdraw two BTC every 24 hours.
Besides, Binance has also promised a new product soon. Yesterday, the company unveiled its plans to launch a fully regulated fiat-to-crypto platform for the U.S. market together with BAM Trading Services.
Concurrently, CZ, Binance’s CEO, tweeted that “Some short term pains may be necessary for long term gains. And we always work hard to turn every short term pain into a long term gain.”
