Thailand’s regulatory officials require full compliance with Thailand’s Securities and Exchange Commission guidelines. Binance and Gulf Innova have worked together since 2022 to ensure an official launch by the end of 2023 in an effort to “meet the increasing demand of Thai people.”

“We are grateful and honored to be granted digital asset operator licenses for Gulf Binance in Thailand,” stated Richard Teng, Binance’s head of Asia, Europe and MENA. Teng underlined the potential of the partnership to “showcase the full potential of blockchain technology,” meeting the needs of local users in a trusted, regulated and secure environment.

Mixing Binance’s global crypto influence and Gulf’s local insight will help Gulf Binance lead the Thai blockchain scene, presenting an accessible and SEC-regulated digital asset exchange harnessing the latest in blockchain technology.

While Thailand did ban crypto as a method of payment in March 2022, this partnership looks to foster growth in the broader blockchain landscape, as Gulf Binance’s licensure signals Thailand’s burgeoning commitment to digital innovation within a secure and regulated framework.
