In a statement, Binance.US said, “The actions we are taking today provide Binance.US with more than seven years of financial runway and enable us to continue to serve our customers while we operate as a crypto-only exchange.” The company highlighted the “real-world consequences for American jobs and innovation” due to the SEC’s stringent attempts to govern the industry.

Why It Matters: Cointelegraph confirmed that Binance.US has cut around 100 positions and that Shroder has left the firm. This move is aimed at providing the crypto exchange with a financial cushion for more than seven years, as it transitions to a crypto-only exchange.
