Italy’s financial regulator issued a stark warning about Binance

The Italian Companies and Exchange Commission (CONSOB) said Binance is not authorized to provide investment services in the country.

“Consob warns savers that the companies of the “Binance Group” are not authorized to provide investment services and activities in Italy, not even through the website www.binance.com  whose sections called “derivatives” and “Stock Token“, relating to instruments related to crypto-assets, were previously also written in Italian.
