In the meantime, many users found this decision to be unclear since true DEX (decentralized exchange) doesn't require KYC verification, and, what is more important, should not be depended on a central authority.

Some users on Reddit have already expressed their suspicion regarding the honesty of Binance's intent, while the others highlighted that Binance DEX wasn't the true DEX from the very beginning.

"It's not a DEX, it's a non-custodial exchange, big difference," user with a nickname "moon401k" posted in the Binance DEX thread on Reddit.

However, back in February, the Co-Founder & CEO of Binance, Changpeng Zhao (CZ), admitted that Binance DEX is not a fully decentralized exchange.

Last year, Binance asked its remaining users from Iran to withdraw their money as the cryptocurrency exchange wanted to comply with international sanctions against their country.
