Operations makes up a very small portion Of its business If you hold cryptocurrency this affects You and by the way CSD of binance has Responded I'll share with you his Statement but very quickly what are the Details the lawsuit filed in the U.S District Court of Illinois on Monday Alleges number one that binance operated A derivatives trading operation in the U.S they offered trades for Cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin Ethereum Litecoin tether and busd which The suit referred to as Commodities so I Like that this lawsuit called Bitcoin a Commodity and ethereum and Litecoin Commodities not Securities that's Interesting but they say Hey you Operated a derivative Exchange in the United States so you obviously have to Register which you never did this suit Also alleges that the company under sees These leadership directed its employees To spoof their location through the use Of virtual private networks vpns so not Just the customers of the exchange but Also binance employees were using VP Ends to get around certain regulation on Top of that they're also charging Binance within not implementing know Your customer or anti-money laundering Processes and having a poor anti-evation Program and by the way they don't just Make the statement they actually back

These allegations up with internal chats I'll share with you some direct messages From their Chief compliance officer of Binance of course alleged all these are Just allegations thus far essentially Saying that binance directed U.S Customers to use a VPN in so many words And in a direct quote from the lawsuit Binance has instructed U.S customers so To evade such controls by using vpns to Conceal their true location VPN use by Customers to access and trade on the Binance platform has been an Open Secret And binance has consistently been aware Of and encouraged the use of vpns by us Customers I think having regulation Having Clarity regulatory regulatory Clarity is very important for the Industry to continue to grow so I think Having that is very important and the Final thing I'll share with you before We get to CZ before we get to the latest Michael Saylor news some of these Alleged internal chats from binance are Wild the filing pointed to internal Chats between binance employees Including Samuel Lim the exchange's Chief compliance officer through January 2022 who is also a defendant by the way He's also getting sued with CZ with the Exchange where Lim appeared to direct an Employee of binance to ask U.S customers To hide their location in a direct quote Allegedly from Lim he said on the

Four ignore thud fake news attacks Etc In the future would appreciate if you Can link this post when I tweet four now The Michael Saylor news today might be Even bigger news but my opinion on all This what's happening with Finance we Knew this was going to happen CZ knew Something like this was going to happen You can't become the biggest crypto Exchange in the world globally by Trading volume without making a few Enemies of regulators binance is Building Products Financial products Where you don't need the traditional System and obviously the traditional System Regulators have an issue with That best case scenario would be they Just get with a heavy heavy fine Finance Has the money I'm sure they gladly pay It off to brush this past them worst Case scenario would be CZ or other High Reps go to jail of course to do that you Have to find them and nobody knows quite Where these individuals are Finance has No headquarters a care to explain at STD A finance I headquarter is a concept you Don't necessarily need to be in the Office to be productive and by the way Some people are saying that the worst Outcome potential of all this is binance Gets banned outright in the US but I got News for you binance is already not Allowed in the US that's why we have Binance U.S that's the U.S regulated

Entity separate company when you look at The Domain it's kind of interesting because It's not falling as much as Bitcoin or Ether or even coinbase see it's down Actually just four percent and it was Down even more and I think guys that Just speaks to the idea that binance's Business most of it is international This is going to affect a much smaller Portion and it still is by far the Largest Exchange in the world and this Is an ongoing story so make sure you Click subscribe you do not want to miss A daily video microstrategy Michael Sailors company repays their silvergate Loan as well as spending a fresh 150 Million dollars buying more Bitcoin this Is all public information in their Latest SEC filing and first off the Software company microstrategy has fully Prepaid the 160 million dollar Outstanding balance on its 205 million Dollar loan from silvergate bank so they Are out of silvergate completely which Is good and by doing so the company has Ended its credit agreement with Silvergate and reclaimed the over 34 Individual Bitcoin that was held as Collateral against alone so this is a Huge punch to the face for everybody That was rooting against Michael Saylor This is now a huge relief for the Microstrategy company and then in the

Coinbase
OUR TAKE

Coinbase is a popular cryptocurrency exchange. It makes it easy to buy, sell, and exchange cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin. Coinbase also has a brokerage service that makes it easy to buy Bitcoin as easily as buying stocks through an online broker. However, Coinbase can be expensive due to the fees it charges and its poor customer service.
