Crypto Exchange Binance Backs World's First Tokenized Bank In Malta

Binance collaborates with Neufund to invest in Founders Bank

In fact, Binance exchange has a 5% stake in the bank already. The financial institution will be based in Malta and fundraising will be conducted under German law. Valletta authorities have welcomed the announcement which is expected to definitely receive warm response from cryptocurrency investors as well.

Popular and established cryptocurrency exchange platform, Binance, has recently unveiled the news that a bank is in the works in Malta.

"We are not only excited to be one of the first investors of this inclusive community for this pioneering initiative but also look forward to explore the full range of its banking services", Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao said.

The tour will kick off in Nashville on October 16, though no Canadian dates have been announced. On Wednesday, July 11, the Ohio-born band dropped " Jumpsuit " and " Nico and the Niners ".

Malta continues to steal the headlines where the crypto space is concerned, this time with the development of the first decentralized bank on the self-described "blockchain island".

The industry is yearning for a strong bridge to connect the crypto world with the trading financial sector.

Malta has truly made efforts towards becoming a "crypto island" and it has been awarded by Binance for the same. Furthermore, the bank's board includes the government's blockchain advisor Abdalla Kablan, Malta Daily reported. According to the outlet, the board will be chaired by entrepreneur Michael Bianchi. Junior Minister for Financial Services, Digital Economy and Innovation Silvio Schembri said in a statement: "We are honored to be chosen as the location of the first global community-owned bank". He was quoted in a declaration released by Binance on Thursday. To use in the EU, the lender will have to get a permit from Maltese regulators and an authorization from the European Central Lender. But the fact that Founders Bank will be decentralized means that no one corporation or person will own it - in fact, the idea is that it will be owned by everyone who invests in its " "legally-binding equity tokens". The token sale will be conducted under German regulatory supervision with the help of a major European stock exchange, which remains unnamed.

Binance CEO, Changpeng Zhao said last week that the company is expecting profit between $500 million to $1 billion. The exchange that was launched a year ago now reports an average daily turnover of $1.5 billion and has about 10 million users. The exchange is not the only crypto company moving from Asia to the island.

A noteworthy assurance that Malta is moving in the right direction regarding Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) regulation was when Binance chose Malta for their new headquarters after the warnings received from Japan, China, and Hong Kong. Upon getting the necessary procedures completed, the Founders Bank will be the first-ever decentralized bank to exist with only community members running it together! Lately, the parliament in Valletta used new laws made to introduce clear rules for the country's developing crypto industry.
