This virtual asset service provider (VASP) license has been granted after Binance co-founder Changpeng Zhao relinquished his voting power in the Dubai-based platform entity.

The platform agreed last year to pay a $4.3 billion settlement to US authorities for violating the Bank Secrecy Act with inadequate anti-money laundering protocols.
