The exchange must also make clear on its website, social media channels and all other communications that it is no longer permitted to operate in the UK Binance Markets won’t be able to resume UK operations without prior written consent.

While the target of the restrictions is a separate legal entity from Binance -- the world’s biggest crypto exchange by reported turnover -- the FCA edict specifies that the notice must be put on Binance.com and communication channels including the Binance mobile and desktop applications.
