The world’s largest crypto exchange Binance on Monday expanded further in Europe by establishing another subsidiary in Ireland.

Binance Establishes 7th Company in Ireland

Crypto exchange Binance has established Binance Global Sourcing as a subsidiary in Ireland, reported The Irish Independent on October 31. This is Binance’s seventh company in Ireland as it looks to expand its presence in Europe.

Binance CEO “CZ” last year announced plans to consider Ireland among countries for its European headquarters. Binance recently hired State Street executive Karl Long as a director of its Irish operations. Long is currently the director of Binance Global Sourcing and law firm Mason Hayes Curran acting as corporate secretary.

Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss-backed Gemini crypto exchange earlier received a license to operate in Ireland. It became the first to receive the Virtual Asset Service Provider (VASP) registration from the Central Bank of Ireland. Gemini also received an Electronic Money Institution (EMI) in March 2022.

Binance also considered Ireland for its European headquarters, but later announced Paris as its European hub. Ireland has a developed financial services industry and is recognized internationally for its technology hub as a gateway to the wider European fintech market.
