Binance seeks European policy officer amid setbacks in France, Netherlands

Quick Take

  • Binance is hiring for an EU policy point person amid a difficult few weeks for the firm in the region. 

Crypto behemoth Binance is seeking a new policy officer for its European operations, following a number of major setbacks on the continent. 

The new hire would "develop and write new policies, standards, guidelines, and procedures for the firm," a recent job advertisement notes

The past few weeks have been complicated for the exchange in the region, with media in France reporting that the company is under investigation by authorities in the country. Binance confirmed that authorities visited its offices in June. 

In the UK, the country's financial watchdog said in June that its local division was not permitted to offer services in the country. The company also announced its departure from the Netherlands last month after it was unable to secure a license from the country's central bank.
