In this regard, a spokesperson from MAS said, “Applicants can withdraw their applications should they see fit, upon which those who are operating under the exemption will be required to cease providing regulated payment services. Binance Asia Services has provided MAS with a plan for the orderly cessation of its regulated payment services.”

As per SBI, both parties will manage funds focusing on financial market infrastructure and distributed ledger technology.

After the digital asset platform listed a K-pop-related cryptocurrency, Army Coin (ARMY), the Monetary Authority of Singapore canceled the license of Bitget. As per the report listing and promotion of ARMY violated the boy band’s intellectual property rights.
