Binance had recently registered with the FIU in May, as the platform intended to resume operations in the country. This came after the watchdog sent notices to nine offshore exchanges for operating in violation of local regulations.

The FIU had also asked the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology to block online access to these exchanges.
