Crypto exchange giant Binance is using its Poland unit to continue serving its customers in Belgium.
"By doing this, Binance ensures that it complies with its regulatory obligations and can continue to provide services to Belgian users," Binance wrote in a Monday blogpost.
"Binance Poland is able to provide crypto exchange and custodian services in line with its registration as a virtual assets service provider in Poland," the company continued.
Belgium's June order
In June, the Financial Services and Markets Authority of Belgium ordered Binance to halt virtual currency services in the country due to Binance providing virtual currency, legal currency and wallet custody services for individuals not in the European Economic Area.
Binance said it was working with the FSMA after receiving the order from the Belgian regulator.
A company spokesperson said at the time that it was disappointed by the news.
"We are disappointed to learn that the FSMA has come to this decision despite our ongoing conversations. We are reviewing the details of their notice and will continue to work collaboratively with regulators in Belgium and around the world in compliance with our obligations," the spokesperson said in June.
