The American branch of cryptocurrency exchange Binance, known as Binance.US, has announced its intention to switch to an all-crypto platform as of June 13. Increasing pressure from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), which just launched a large enforcement action against the corporation, prompted the decision. Binance.US said that although cryptocurrency trading, staking, deposits, and withdrawals would continue as usual, USD deposits will be suspended starting on June 9 and USD-based trading pairs would soon be delisted.
