Binance.US, the main crypto exchange branch of Binance in the United States, has just announced that it will be making its services available to Florida residents.
According to the August 24 update on the Binance.US website, the digital asset marketplace will now allow Floridians to buy, trade and acquire digital assets. As of this writing, Binance.US has not removed Florida from its list of states where its services can be legally used, which includes Alabama, Alaska, Connecticut, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Louisiana, New York, North Carolina, Texas, Vermont, and Washington.
Binance.US CEO Catherine Coley also announced the expansion of the site’s services on Twitter, stating “Florida woman is bringing the crypto market to her home country.” Coley grew up in Orlando.
The addition of Florida makes it the 38th state eligible for residents to use Binance.US since the marketplace opened account registration in the United States in September 2022 – although the service is also available in some US territories such as Puerto Rico. About 12.3 million people over the age of 18 live in the Sunshine State.
