  • Binance has announced a string of developments in a bid for global expansion

  • BNB is recovering amid positive development

  • The upside looks sustainable, but BNB faces resistance at $300

Binance BNB/USD trades at $291, recovering from the September bottom of $260. As of press time, BNB had gained 2.12% in a day amid small recoveries in the broader crypto sector. The gains come when Binance is scoring major wins in global expansion.

On September 28, Binance signed an agreement with Kazakhstan for the shared development of the crypto sector in the country. According to Kazakhstan president Kassym-Jomart Tokayev, Binance will create a “hub for the entire region.” The latest development comes after Binance was, in August, authorized to operate in the country. Kazakhstan remains a key crypto market, coming second in bitcoin mining hash rate after the US.

On October 3, Binance again opened two new offices in Brazil. The move is expected to expand the crypto exchange’s footprint in South America. The exchange recently unveiled a new office in New Zealand and eyes expansion in Italy, France, and Spain.

While we cannot ascertain whether the latest developments are responsible for BNB gains, they add a positive sentiment. A brief technical overview shows the price rally could continue, at least in the short term.

A technical outlook shows that BNB has initiated a breakout from a descending triangle. The bullish reversal occurred as the price settled at the $260 support. From the MACD indicator, the momentum is bullish and increasing. 

Concluding thoughts

BNB looks poised for further gains after a breakout. However, $300 resistance remains a key level to watch. The cryptocurrency must overcome the resistance to find room for the next move to $330.

Crypto exchange Binance has reentered the Japanese market after acquiring a 100% stake in Sakura Exchange BitCoin (SEBC), a regulated cryptocurrency exchange in Japan.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • SEBC is a Japan Financial Services Agency (JFSA) regulated entity.
  • By acquiring SEBC, Binance aims to offer Japanese-regulated services through the exchange.
  • At the time of the Binance acquisition, the Tokyo-based exchange supported 11 trading pairs; mainly cryptocurrency-Japanese Yuan pairs.

Despite the tense situation in the crypto market following the collapse of FTX which seems to be taking other crypto entities like BlockFi down with it, Binance seems to be spreading its wing further and further. The SEBC acquisition comes weeks after Binance pulled out of its planned FTX rescue plan citing issues with FTX’s financial book.

Expanding into Japan

In the past few years, Binance has been expanding its business across various countries as it stamps its authority within the crypto space. So far, the crypto exchange has secured regulatory approvals in France, Italy, Spain, Bahrain, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, New Zealand, Kazakhstan, Poland, Lithuania, and Cyprus.

The acquisition of Sakura Exchange BitCoin marks the exchange’s first entry into East Asia. Most importantly, SEBC is already a regulated entity which means Binance will be able to offer regulated services in Japan, which is a major economy in East Asia.

In a press release announcing the acquisition of the Japanese exchange, the general manager of Binance Japan, Takeshi Chino, said:

“The Japanese market will play a key role in the future of cryptocurrency adoption. As one of the world’s leading economies with a highly-developed tech ecosystem, it’s already poised for strong blockchain uptake. We will actively work with regulators to develop our combined exchange in a compliant way for local users. We are eager to help Japan take a leading role in crypto.” 

At the time of the acquisition, SEBC offered customer consultation services and crypto brokerage services supporting 11 crypto-Japanese Yuan trading pairs. The trading pairs include BTC/JPY, ETH/JPY, BCH/JPY, XRP/JPY, LTC/JPY, ETC/JPY, XEM/JPY, MONA/JPY, ADA/JPY, XYM/JPY, and COT/JPY.
