This announcement affects only users in the the European Economic Area (EEA)
Fellow Binancians,
On 2024-06-30 (UTC+3), the new MiCA stablecoin rules will come into effect
across the European Economic Area (EEA). This will be a first step entering the
new regulatory framework and it will have a significant impact on the
stablecoin market in EEA. As it is important for all users to understand the
impact of the upcoming changes, here are some of the important details about
the new rules and how Binance is implementing them.
MiCA Stablecoin Rule Compliance - Product Impacts for EEA Users
From 2024-06-30 (UTC+3), stablecoins will be regulated in the EEA, which means
in practice that only certain regulated companies will be able to issue and
offer to the public stablecoins, those stablecoins will be “Regulated
Stablecoins”.
Several existing stablecoins may not fall into this category and will
therefore be subject to certain restrictions. These will be categorized as
“Unauthorized Stablecoins.”
Binance will make phased changes to Unauthorized Stablecoins’ availability,
which are detailed below. These transitional measures aim at allowing EEA users
to switch to Regulated Stablecoins while avoiding any market disruption and
complying with MiCA stablecoin rules.
Binance will restrict the availability of Unauthorized Stablecoins for EEA
users across its product offerings, starting from2024-06-30 (UTC+3).
*
Binance Convert: Convert functions for Unauthorized Stablecoins will be
maintained in a “sell-only” mode. This means in practice that EEA users will be
able tosell Unauthorized Stablecoins for: other digital assets (such as bitcoin
or ether), Regulated Stablecoins, or fiat currencies (depending on the
availability of fiat channels in one’s jurisdiction). This will allow users to
easily switch to Regulated Stablecoins. Buying Unauthorized Stablecoins with
Convert will not be possible from2024-06-30 (UTC+3).
*
Spot Trading: Spot trading pairs with Unauthorized Stablecoins will remain
available until further notice. During the interim period, digital asset
trading pairs with Unauthorized Stablecoins will coexist with trading pairs
with Regulated Stablecoins.
*
Wallet: Custody and wallet services of Unauthorized Stablecoins will continue.
Users will be able to withdraw or deposit stablecoins from or to their Binance
wallet.
General Product Restrictions
Apart from the aforementioned products in Binance Convert, Spot Trading and
Wallet, Binance will implement product restrictions across its entire product
offering. These restrictions will prevent users from entering into new products
or service offerings involving Unauthorized Stablecoins. Please note the
specific product impacts beyond this general product restriction are effective
by 2024-06-30 (UTC+3), unless otherwise specified below.
