- Binance.US, Binance and the SEC have come to a mutual agreement.
- Binance.US will ensure that no authorities from the global exchange, Binance Holdings, have access to private keys for wallets or hardware wallets.
- The deal was approved by Judge Amy Berman Jackson.
According to court records, Binance, Binance.US, and the US Securities and Exchange Commission entered into an arrangement to guarantee that only the exchange’s subsidiary US workers may access client cash in the near term.
The Securities and Exchange Commission struck an agreement with Binance late Friday that would enable the world’s biggest cryptocurrency exchange to continue operating in the United States and protect client assets while the business fights a federal lawsuit.
According to the latest announcement, the deal has been approved by the federal judge overseeing the case. According to the filings, Binance.US will take steps to ensure that no Binance Holdings officials have access to private keys for its various wallets, hardware wallets, or root access to Binance.US’s Amazon Web Services tools.
Funds belonging to Binance.US users would be placed in separate digital vaults accessible exclusively to the US exchange — not to the exchange’s bigger worldwide company or its creator, Changpeng Zhao. Binance.US is allowed to transfer firm assets solely to make payments for costs or to discharge obligations accrued in the usual course of business, according to the agreement.
Additional elements in the proposed deal include Binance.US creating new crypto wallets that no workers of the global exchange will have access to, providing extra information to the SEC, and agreeing to an accelerated discovery timeline, according to the documents.
After the filing of fraud allegations against the exchange on June 5, the SEC proceeded to freeze the firm’s US assets, which the exchange’s attorneys said would put it out of business in the US.
The exchange’s US subsidiary ceased dollar deposits last week and offered consumers until June 13 to withdraw their dollar cash after the SEC requested that its assets be frozen.
