New Zealand’s Ministry of Business, Innovation, and Employment allowed Binance to offer Kiwis a handful of financial services, including spot trading, staking, non-fungible tokens (NFTs), and more.
General Manager of Binance New Zealand Ben Rose shared his excitement by stating:
Having the world’s leading crypto business registered to operate in New Zealand not only means access to the lowest trading fees, it also means Kiwis can expect to have access to many exciting global product and service innovations happening in this space.
Based on the announcement, Binance will offer Kiwis “the world’s lowest trading fees and largest user bases” for them to trade and build their portfolios.
Binance founder and CEO Changpeng Zhao (CZ) shared his thoughts on regulatory approval and newly launched local offices by stating:
A lot of major tech firms are slow to open a New Zealand office. I guess for some, it’s easy to overlook as it’s a smaller market but we see significant value in having a serious New Zealand presence. The history of fintech innovation in New Zealand is very well known, with one of the earliest and most rapid uptakes of digital transactions in the world.
According to the CZ statement, the decision to open New Zealand offices was strategic, aiming to increase digital transactions. In 2022, Binance received regulatory approvals from Dubai, Spain, and France.
