Moreover, Hillmann remarked that Binance is optimistic and satisfied with the direction of the talks. Although he couldn’t estimate the amount of the penalties or the timeline for resolving the matters with U.S. regulators, he pointed out that the current ambiguity surrounding cryptocurrency regulations in the United States has created a perplexing situation for Binance, saying that “It’s a very bewildering time for us.”


Industry analysts have described the SEC’s recent actions as a “war on crypto,” which seems to be focused on specific staking services and stablecoins that the commission has classified as falling under securities laws.

In reference to the recent enforcement actions, Hillman suggested that they could have a profound and long-lasting impact on the crypto industry in the United States.

To conclude, the Binance executive says that reaching a resolution with U.S. regulators would bode well for the company and its prospects going forward.

“It will be a good moment for our company because it allows us to put it behind us.”
