Paysafe Partnership Ends: Binance France Urges Fiat-to-Crypto Conversion

Paysafe Partnership Ends: Binance France Urges Fiat-to-Crypto Conversion

Binance
France is facing the expiration of its partnership with the banking provider Paysafe. It has suggested that its customers swiftly convert any fiat money
held on the platform into cryptocurrencies. This recommendation came in light of the recent termination of its banking
partnership. The partnership has supported euro deposits and withdrawals through
SEPA bank transfers.

Binance
France Yet to Secure Replacement for Paysafe

The
partnership between Binance France and Paysafe officially ended on September
25. The conclusion was announced in late June. As of now, Binance France has
not secured a new banking partner to replace Paysafe.

On
September 26, a spokesperson for the company confirmed to the French radio station
BFM that, for the time being, Binance France has advised its users to convert their
fiat balances into cryptocurrencies without incurring additional fees. The
spokesperson added that Binance is actively working to onboard new partners. It
expects to provide an update in the near future.

Users
have reported that the mobile application now automatically displays a
suggestion to convert fiat balances into cryptocurrencies upon startup. This development follows the previous difficulties that Binance customers in Europe faced. In
late August, the exchange temporarily suspended euro withdrawals and deposits
via SEPA due to a lack of payment provider support.

Binance
has been facing ongoing regulatory challenges, particularly in Europe. It has
come under scrutiny for alleged non-compliance with financial sanctions against
Russia. In June, Binance
announced its exit from the Netherlands. Moreover, it faced an order from the Belgian authorities to cease all services less than a week later.

Additionally,
on September 27, Binance confirmed its complete exit from the Russian market by
selling its business to the newly launched cryptocurrency exchange platform,
CommEX.

Binance
Faces Euro Payment Disruption amid Regulatory Scrutiny

Finance Magnates reported earlier
that Binance
had announced that its euro banking partner, Paysafe Solutions, would cease
supporting payments for the exchange, effective from September 25.

This
decision comes in response to concerns raised by the UK’s financial regulator,
the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), regarding Binance’s utilization of the
UK’s payment network.

From September 25, Binance users will be required to use new banking details to make EUR deposits into their Binance fiat wallets. They may need to accept
new terms and conditions. Notably, this change solely affects euro deposits and
withdrawals conducted through Paysafe, particularly Bank Transfers (SEPA). It
does not impact other fiat deposit or withdrawal services.

The
Financial Times reported that the FCA had expressed concerns about the
Binance-Paysafe partnership. The FCA stated that Paysafe was aware of
these concerns and was under close supervision.

Securing
payment services in fiat currencies has been a recurring challenge for
unregulated cryptocurrency
companies, such as Binance. Regulatory scrutiny often compels banks and
financial service providers to withdraw their support. Binance’s situation has
intensified as it faces mounting global regulatory pressure.
